Another fuzzy, rather lo-fi outing for Sredni Vashtar... [more inside]
So this is another song, audio is taken directly from the youtube video here. This is a live performance, did a session in the lighting hire and install company I work for over the weekend. This video forms part of a competition entry for our band. [more inside]
Something fairly new. This is two of us playing live, me on bass and singing, and synth and drum machine from Magnus. [more inside]
After spending a few years rehearsing and making rough and ready demos, Sredni Vashtar finally made it into a real studio last month. Here's one of them - the mix is still a bit rough so it works best on headphones. [more inside]
This is a brand new track I just finished with Tiger La, an awesome singer from London. Dig it!
April Challenge - lyrics from "The Wasteland" [more inside]
Dedicated to anyone who has ever been to a music festival in the UK and ended up feeling utterly miserable. [more inside]
I've been gone a while, but I'm back now, and I want to say sorry. [more inside]
Another of the tunes from my band's live recording session this past July. [more inside]
A Gameboy tribute to London [more inside]
Mainly an experiment with a new microphone. The vocal needs to be re-done, and made louder. Otherwise, it's okay. Oddly enough, it's about this girl... I hope it's not gauche to post lyrics :-) Longing for summer In the Snow that fell around us All around the town Following children Running In and out of my life Getting drunk and dancing All we had we lost Turned into Ice Waiting for aeroplanes How could You expect much more from me? Did we stand a chance? I tried to keep you Dipping Into London guidebooks Thermals and two bedspreads Even though we knew you'd Never Delay ?
Another song by my ex-band, again with me on trumpet. Mellow soul/funk.
punchy, tuneful and melodic - written by a quiet phone in London. Brrrr Brrrr
A fading red sun and black trees. Written in a fleapit of a kitchen under the glare of a striplight in West Ealing. Be patient and wait for the drums to kick in.... ...the song got us all our gigs in 2005
Composed, recorded, produced and mastered by me and a group of peers at a Junior conservatoire a few years ago. A few pointers - the vocalist was instructed to "Speak to God" (but not in a religious way), and the title comes from the feeling that the whole track is moving towards something. Violin = Lotto! (Yep I play two instruments)
Funky soul-inspired song from a 10-piece North London band sadly no longer in existence. Trumpet = Lotto!
