New Evil Twin material

Saturday Oct 28, 2017
I find myself suddenly working on new Evil Twin material. New from 1998 (and started in 1996). It might be finished sometime around 2030.

Busy, busy, busy...

After a lull I have been feverishly re-editing some of my more recent songs and have uploaded them to YouTube. I need a rest now.

'Candida Plays The Chalumeau' on iTunes

As if iTunes didn't have enough music already, 'Candida Plays The Chalumeau' is now up there for download, and streaming on Apple Music. But why pay when you can get it for free...

New recording of 'I Hate You'

Monday May 9, 2016

I was walking in my local high street when I saw a woman wearing a t-shirt that said 'I Hate You'. I felt like going up to her and saying that I'd written a song with exactly that title. But you can't go up to someone wearing an 'I Hate You' t-shirt and say, "I hate you too". That's not going to work out well.

Anyway, this is a song I wrote in around 1994 or so and I've recorded it several times but I've never felt as though I've got the best out of it. This 2016 recording is my current favourite version. Oh, what is it about..? It's a love song. Isn't it obvious?

Hear it on SoundCloud...

Yellow socks

Monday May 2, 2016

I took a trip in my time machine back to 1983 and retrieved one of my old song demos. Not a bad song and not a bad arrangement. But the recording of the vocal.. oo-er missus. So I re-recorded the whole thing. The arrangement is very similar to the original, just a little more filled out. You can find it on SoundCloud here...

Soundcloud progress

Monday May 2, 2016

I have rather left my SoundCloud page to gather web dust over the last few months. However I've made the transition to a 'pro' account, as they call it, and I've spent some time uploading tracks and cleaning it up. It just needs a few visitors, likes, followers and comments. You know where to go...

The start of something wonderful...

Just what the world needs - another blog! Of course the true test of a blog is whether the blogger can keep it up. Well we'll see about that...
