Clubmen Update 

So an update on The Clubmen...

As some of you know I've been part of a band/project/indescribable endeavor of lunatic proportions called The Clubmen. This is a trio featuring the producer of my album The Breaks, Stu Rowe, the one and only Mr. Andy Partridge... and yours truly smile emoticon We started back in '09 with one or two songs and decided from there that we really wanted to do a full album together. Well kids, it looks like this is the year for The Clubmen... I've got the music for the final tracks we need...all I have to do is write and record the vocals then the boys across the pond will run it thru the golden blender and wrap it in a sparkly bow smile emoticon I'll also tell you that there is a little promo clip out there in the private youtube ethers waiting to be made public... feel free to visit said one and only on twitter and express your curiosity smile emoticon

That's it for now xx

 
 

Glitch and Bitch :) 

So, the last month or so has been rather fraught with technical difficulties. All is well now, tho.... so expect things to pick up shortly :) I'm in the process of building/rebuilding my studio situation - this will include a nice little place to do video as well... Stuff always takes longer than I think it will - but I am closing in folks!

Re: The Clubmen
New vocals have been sent and received by the English cronies - so that is moving along nicely, We expect the album to get done over the winter! A 2015 release perhaps?? So far it will be on Andy's label so feel free to get over to Ape Records and let him know you are looking forward to it  - let;s get some momentum happening!!

That's it for now - more updates soon!!

The Clubmen!! 

As some of you know, I have been involved in an ongoing project/trio thing with Andy Partridge and Stu Rowe since about 2008 or 9... called The Clubmen. Well, this year I think we might be closing in on an actual album!  We've started up recording again and are amassing a fair number of wonders :) Keep checking back for updates on our progress and for the release of a song off the upcoming album...

Shindig Magazine review of THE BREAKS! 

And finally I can't dismiss you without pointing you firmly in the direction of Albuquerque's startling Jen Olive, whose THE BREAKS proves beyond any reasonable doubt that she could be the envelope-pushing, acoustic guitar-toting Joni Mitchell of her generation if she wasn't already it's Linda Perhacs. Jen;s antennae perceive music differently than the lumpen herd: give her a 4/4 time signature and she'll create an elliptical orb within it, while she approaches harmonic intervals like a swift skimming the surface of a pool. It;s no stretch to imagine Radio 2 enhancing its stock thousandfold by placing the melodiously, effortlessly accessible 'Black Sunday', 'Time', or the title track on constant rotation: but personally, I won't be content until there's a statue of her in Albuquerque's Old Town.

All things new.... 

So.. I am back in the CA desert in a great little retreat/house... perfect . After nearly a year back from the UK, I think it;s time to get going again. My first thoughts are videos... easy, live videos. Just me and my guitar - back to basics. Any suggestions or requests? I should say in advance that Robot Boy and I Say Love are off the table for now - I need to listen to the raw guitar tracks and figure out the tunings all over again... shame on me I never write down anything! Other than those tho - let me know what you'd like to see/hear :) xx
