This week sees the release of my new album Post Punk.

The album, written by Kes Loy, Barrie Gledden & me, is a collection of 7 tracks reflecting the Post Punk era of the late 1970s & early 1980s.

Who Knows? – Trashy driving punk pop with agitated & perplexed male vocal
Pinstripe Punk – Punchy post punk song with cynical male vocal
Power To The People – Revolutionary stomping post punk anthem with crusading male vocals
When It Feels Like This – Up-tempo driving post punk song with agitated male vocal

MUSIC ON: ‘Going for a Song’ Short Animation Featuring My Track ‘Twists and Turns’

I’ve recently been involved with the creation of music (writing, recording, mixing & mastering) for a new short animation helping people understand how copyright works.

The animation, for CopyrightUser.org via AudioNetwork, follows the writing of a song from inception to getting it ‘out’ & heard by the public.

Produced by ‘Worth Knowing Productions Ltd.‘, they took my track ‘Twists and Turns‘ and reverse engineered it – going from humming the tune, to adding lyrics; recording it, to performing it and making it available to buy, download or use.

The original track is here. Written by myself, Barrie Gledden & Key Loy.
Additional vocals & music were added for the animation by Kes Loy & Lucy Kimmings.
