Some of you visitors will know of my history as a songwriter and musician with the Kursaal Flyers; and Eddie and the Hot Rods, with whom I spent a number of enjoyable years recording and touring.
This is the latest incarnation of the website. There are some pages added, and some deleted. All in all, there are some new song pages, including personal versions of Hot Rod and Kursaal hits.
My last CD "Eclectic" is available here by mail order. It was recorded in the Basement Studio, Brixton, mixed and mastered by Steven Forward at Human Worldwide, Paris. As a matter of interest, the Basement Studio is no more; it has been transformed into the Old Kitchen Studio.
You can buy copies of the CD or mp3 downloads here. You can pay using PayPal or ordinary CC.
I will be trying to record some live music during 2017 when the opportunity presents itself, and I will be recording and mixing new songs for my next, as yet untitled, CD
One new piece of equipment has found it's way into my live set-up. I read about a US designer, Jesse Hoff, who hand builds beautifully-toned boutique amplifiers (see Lazy J). I decided to invest in a J35 and it has lived up to expectations in terms of purity of tone. I notice an immense difference from the pick-ups on my various Strats.
I'm still looking to play in various parts of the country during 2017. I am negotiating with friends around the Cardiff and Manchester areas to see what I could put together during spring. If you'd like me to visit your particular area or venue, please click here to send me an email and we can discuss what you have in mind.
The last point I must mention is the demise of my favourite guitar shop, Chandlers. I was very sad to see it go as I've bought a few guitars from them, and the redoubtable Brinsley Schwarz has always taken extremely good care of my guitar repairs.
