A wrinkled roue ruminates rudely..... Special, exclusive, once-and-for-all, never-to-be-repeated (thankfully, some may say) vinyl-only MeFiMu magimix. Hope y'all like it. [more inside]
This is incomplete and very current WIP from my glacial synth-based alter ego and is perhaps something of a companion piece to White Feather. I'd really appreciate opinions on (a) the pretty drastic transitions in the piece from the rhythmic to the quasi-orchestral and back again, (b) whether the lyric theme has any kind of cheddar whiff, and (c) whether it needs more "oomph" under the orchestral bits (actually difficult to pull off without destroying the mood - I've tried....). Any other comments welcome of course - but this is unfinished and well rough so....geeza break. [more inside]
An abstract and impressionistic take on the wonderful world of work. Or something like that. Whatever. Listening to it afresh from the distance of several years, I've no idea what the fuck I'm banging on about here. I was probably stoned out of my box at the time. Disgarceful behaviour for a doctor - tsk tsk. Another extract from the extensive but wholly disreputable Dundee Archive. NB: this product contains faint traces of jazz-lite.....
I can usually get a presentable mix without too much hassle, but this one beats the hell out of me. Sounds good in headphones, complete shit on monitors and even worse in the car. Advice? [more inside]
Final upload from my pile of rejects - ok, the other two weren't exactly the dog's bollocks (which is why they were jettisoned - duh), but this one..........hell, even I like this... [more inside]
#2 in a short series of 3 "rediscovered" tracks from my pile of untitled cds - which were heading for the bin until I decided I'd better check them out first. Again, about 5 or 6 years old (at a guess) this one's pretty off-centre..... [more inside]
Recorded 5 years ago. Frankly, a bit of a mess. Lyric is vaguely about relationship breakdown, but is "stream of consciousness" i.e. bollocks. But......something there? Worth re-recording/working on? I dunno. You might tell me.

Aaahhh, the ravages of time............. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything. [more inside]
Slightly absurd to try to describe music in words - have a listen and let me know what you think.
Should speak for itself I guess. Perennial tale of wronged love, worm turning, vengeance etc. [more inside]
