Not Dead Yet

I just found this blog buried under a mountain of dust. Might have something to say soon. Might not. Still alive. I think.

It took seven years...


...But I finally covered a Jon Brion song. After such a wait, the process only took about two hours this morning. Enjoy. In other news, the website is still being rebuilt and I'm still alive.

Been A Bit Quiet Around Here...

I am still alive, but all of my efforts are going into producing the soundtrack to Where The Yellowstone Goes. I have been fully immersed in the creative process and having seen lots of footage I can assure you this is going to be a fantastic film.

Corinna, Corinna...

Just thought I share a Dylan cover I recorded on Monday. A nice moment of relaxing amongst a busy schedule...

Congratulations!

Big round of applause to Hunter, Sarah and the crew who managed to beat their kickstarter target by a clear margin this weekend gone. Thanks to anyone who visits here who may have donated. If none of my visitors donated... SHAME ON YOU!

In other news, I have been very busy in the studio, creating all sorts of audio oddities for various projects. I have once again fallen in love with open tunings on my guitar and expect them to be featuring far more regularly than normal in my new material.

I'm still remastering 25 Golden Grapes, it's just that my time is being used up by contemporary projects so I'm finding it hard to fit in a retrospective one. Soon though, it will finally be available again.

Nothing else to report except sleep deprivation and hunger. Jog on!

Where The Yellowstone Is Going...

Folks, there are only a few days left and only a few dollars needed! Ok, about $2200 plus or minus a few, but this will be worth every cent! Donate as much as you can, but don't think of it as a donation, think of it as a purchase! For a mere $25 you get two movies and eternal gratitude! That is a bargain! Help Hunter, Sarah and the crew meet their target and get the film the distribution it deserves. Get Demis CousCous playing through cinema speakers and when you see and hear it think, "I did this".

This is a true independent film venture and deserves far more support than any stupid Kenneth Brannagh Norse Mythology mishmash nonsense starring Sir Anthony Paycheck. Don't buy Star Wars on Blu Ray now that Lucas has pooped all over it, buy Where The Yellowstone Goes now that Hunter has poured his soul into it.

Don't watch idiot losers poop through their mouths on *Insert Country Here*'s Got Talent. Watch these genuinely talented people doing something special.

Help make this happen!

25 Golden Grapes - Remastered!

Eagle-eared listeners may have noticed a few old-school cover versions turning up on my soundcloud page. This is because I'm currently in the process of remastering the long lost 25 Golden Grapes collection (it was down the back of my sofa as predicted). I expect it to be dropped into your headphones within days in glorious remastered lo-fi digital bit rate things. I'm also treating it to brand new artwork, replacing the stock photograph of grapes that the original release had. Keep your ears peeled and your eyes round... Here comes an old sound...

Support The Yellowstone Film

Help get the new Hunter Weeks documentary Where The Yellowstone Goes the distribution and financing it deserves. All you need to do is pledge a small amount (for which you will receive a DVD or Blu Ray) or you can pledge even more and get to be an executive or associate producer and go to premieres and generally feel great about yourself for having helped support a brilliant indie production by a great filmmaker.

It's got great music too, from what I've heard...
