New Solo Album

I’m very pleased to announce that my first solo album is available from the OBS record label. It’s a collection of works that span the last ten years and contains a selection of live and studio recordings. Some are commissions, some are collaborations and some are solo explorations.

The album is available here on Bandcamp. Please enjoy and, of course, have a look around the other OBS releases.

OOLM Live Performance

Waaaaaay back on the 27th September Jeremy Wiltshire and I went over to Scaledown and had an absolute whale of a time as the Order of Limerent Monks. Thanks to Shaun for the excellent intro/outro and funky camera work. Here’s the recording of the full, unadulterated, unedited 15 minutes of monkish theatrics (note: It’s not obvious but there is an intentionally feeding back guitar on the floor in front of us). Thanks Shaun Hendry, Mark, Jude et al, for having us. Twas an absolute pleasure.

Limerent Monks Photo’s

OOLM, or The Order Of Limerent Monks, a new project by myself and Jeremy Wiltshire have released photo’s in the third person.

“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.”

….And you will know us by the Trail of our Limerence…..

Our heroines are Dorothy Tennov, Susan Forward, Lindsay C Gibson, Susan Anderson.

Our bible is The Body Keeps the Score.

Skinner Box Theory.

Anxious Avoidant doom.

Anticipatory Anxiety.

Hope plus Uncertainty

Intermittent rewards can go to the dustbin.

Tame the Inner Child.

Be Kind to Yourself.

We are the Order of Limerent Monks…..

More to follow….

Knitting Music

Last Friday, 26th July 2019, I had the great pleasure of being part of Sam Topleys Knitting Ensemble at Leicesters LCB Depot, where we knitted whilst simultaneously making elecronic noise with embedded oscillators. It was enourmous fun.
