UK-based psychologist who loves prog/art rock, chamber pop, electronica, experimental stuff and, oddly enough, Christmas music. I'm more of a music critic and fan than a musician, but I used to play the recorder and the trumpet (a long time ago!). I'm hoping to compose a few tunes from time to time, despite my virtual lack of musical ability.
You can also hear my lyrics on the following collaboration with MacJammer dwwave:
Catastrophic City
And here's another collaboration with dwwave (lyrics and vocals from me on this one):
Questions (w/ Epileptic Gibbon)
And you can hear my singing and improvised lyrics on the following collaboration with MacJammer nisper:
Loose Anna By You II (w/ Epileptic Gibbon)
And hear me masticate on the following comedy number by MJ UK 2006:
The Kitchen Interviews
I appear in the choir for Dick Langford's wonderful 'I Had To Marry You':
I Had To Marry You
My most recent performance involves me providing lead vocals and rewritten lyrics for a live MJUK version of APB's 'Where There's A Will (There's A Way)':
