No Buttys Pete but Pan con Tomate ;).....a little raw garlic and tomato rubbed into fresh crusty bread with thin sliced of Jamon Serrano, like proscuitto.

That sounds like a dead posh sarnie to me !

A blog would be a cool idea, I enjoyed reading Robert Rich's tour blogs he did.

A mighty wander Julio, hope you take sufficient buttys ! 490 miles is way out of my league - more like 15 miles a week !

Very angry stuff from the underbelly of UK society

'Key Markets' by Sleaford Mods


I shall visit your room, I am glad you are talking about such things...


Is this a case of artists / labels trying to 'add value' to their releases in an increasingly digital world ? If so, I think that's cool, but it goes without saying that the music should be able to 'speak for it itself', primarily.

Your work is brilliants, I shall read your book.

More rhubarb, faster.

Off topic, but three Teesside fellers in one thread here  :)

Cheers David, that would explain things.

I really like the Budd-esque piano on Track 1, I must say.

I do wonder who writes his press releases though...

These are the full tracks (?), I thought Projekt was dead against full track previewing / streaming ?

Cheers for that,

Good points - which I hadn't thought of.

Bandcamp Subscription service ?

Just came across this whilst logging into my account. Any thoughts / experiences etc. ?

(apologies if this is in the wrong place)

I used to use a friends ADAT and Mackie (1604?) mixer set-up years ago with various Lexicon and Drawmer units. I have to say, I wouldn't fancy returning to that now !
Moving away from the computer is definitely something I'd like to do more of, though.

Are you talking primarily about an alternative recording set-up ?. If not, my experience is that I'm finally getting around to using the iPad more (I know it's a mini-computer) being able to do stuff away from my studio room has been quite a revelation

An inspirational player who performed to millions - RIP Chris Squire !

If nothing else (as Mike says), this is ineffective promotion - considering that this is an ambient music forum.

This is getting annoying now. Do you have anything else to contribute ?

Through headphones lets keep the production level of what we hear at its zenith

A worthy manifesto, indeed :)

Thanks for the background info John,

I should say the change from the Ning to ello (as it is) is pretty significant, the formats are quite different. Saying that, I imagine people will adapt.

Firstly, I should say this is a subtle work which requires repeated listenings.

I'd say there is an element of metallic-type sounds, but overall the album isn't unbalanced tonally - there's a lot more going on in the spectrum as well as the sounds in the upper frequency range. Perhaps only on Track 6 is the balance veered a tad far towards the high-end (for my particular preferences) where the piano is featured alongside a static like sound (which has an almost has a breathy quality) which is a tad 'forward'. Interestingly, the album starts with a distinctly HF free intro.

There are subtle compositional and structural elements which prevail throughout the album and it is spatially interesting too - again in a subtle manner. Sometimes I find 'wild pannings' to be a bit distracting unless there is something to offset these shifts against - more 'centred' sounds.

I think an artist should stick to their guns, so to speak. If they decide to create a work with a particular sound signature, thats their choice. Like every other creative decision it won't be the same for everyone, that's what happens when any artist releases a work - you open yourself for reactions, positive and negative.
