Albert Ayler 04:18
Jonestown 04:23


Perched atop my steed wearing only extremely skimpy underwear I see the approach of an evil looking black tail finned beast of a car. Fury rears but I hold on tight as the vehicle skids over gravel before halting , the door flies open and from it appears a creature in matching black , Dave Thompson aka ' the bus driver'. Aka Luana's Black Reptiles.

Fast forward thirty years and more modestly attired I find myself lip synching in his kitchen for a music video he creates for the band I perform with , we drink strong coffee , discuss music , our tastes for early Roxy Music and Robert Fripp give us common ground , a collaboration is mooted and percolates for a number of months before the man in black presents me with tracks he recorded decades ago ' now is their time!' we decide.

Words are written

More coffee is drunk

Vocals are recorded and the tracks are mixed by the man in black ,

1 A swarm of bees - words that came to me on a less than idyllic walk in the countryside , hopelessly lost and mithered by insect life my mind conjured desperate little scenarios and presented visions in vivid technicolour

2 Albert Ayler , a tribute to a complex individual who defied convention

3 Jonestown - Trying to imagine the last hours in the compound from an insider perspective


released September 5, 2014
