It may have been Pete Townsend or Daevid Allen (I can’t remember which) who said something along the lines of “It doesn’t matter how many people are interested in your art, what is important is that you DO it”. So here I am, still doing it - for no other reason than I can (or must, because I’ll go mad if I don’t!)…

Many thanks to all the people since 2000 who have taken an interest in the weird and un-commercial music I create. Also, thanks to the power of the Internet I know my music has spread around the world. In the early days I used to keep a list of people who had requested copies of my CD’s, and they were being sent to Europe, South America, North America, Australia, and more.

It amazed me then, and it still amazes me now - the world is a much smaller place with the Internet. However the Internet is also responsible for the death of the CD, and for endless bootlegging of artist’s work, both large and small. That’s the other thing that amazed me about people on the web - even little old me could release an album and by the end of the week it was on Russian bootleg websites for illegal download. Unbelievable.

Some of the albums on here have hyperlinks for free downloads, so enjoy them.

Recorded at the same time as the LEO album, I couldn’t edit this down for inclusion, so just chose to put it out “warts & all”.

Alive in the Company of Ghosts

2015

A return to the ill-fated Zodiac Wheel, what a waste of time that was.

2014

Nothing...

2013

Nothing in the ambient / space rock vein as I was primarily concentrating on Heavy Relic at this point.

2012

Nothing...

2011

Pandora

Himalayan Surf Music

2011 was a good year, as with COS below something just came together on the recordings for this album.

Circles of Silence

Definitely one of my favourite releases, pure ambient bliss.

Echo Chamber (unreleased demo)

This was an interesting experiment to try and just use guitar and tons of echo/delay a la Manuel Gottsching. It never quite got finished.

2004

Floating Invisible - released by the short-lived Rubbish Records, a brave but probably foolhardy attempt to run an ethical record label.

A Moment With Merlin

For this one my front room was full of gongs, singing bowls, tampura and other fun instruments courtesy of Malcolm “Merlin” Wood  (RIP).
