Demo recordings 1990-2020
This is a colection of self-recorded demo versions plus a live* track recorded direct to cassette tape, of the various songs I've written over the last 30 years.
During this time I've been fortunate enough to work with a lot of very talented and inspiring musicians to whom I am very grateful for their endless patience with me and their wealth of musical knowledge that was so generously shared.
I'm hoping that two or three of these songs will make it onto PIG IRON's lock-down project album in 2021, with some proper guitar work and real drums to acompany me.
The track Cut and Run is dedicated to the memory of Tim Smith (1961-2020) what with it being a shameless Cardiacs rip-off and all that.
PS Kavus told me how to do the crazy widdly guitar tapping bit, so he must bear some irresponsibility!
