A late 70s/early 80s pop inspired piece (hopefully pretty obviously). I enjoyed making this.

Very quick to write and record. Basically done from start to finish in about an hour and a half (I look at the clock). Despite it's brevity, there's quite a lot going on (especially in how exact I've tried to be with the harmonies, and double…

Written/Recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). The second song I wrote for RPM this year, as a picked acoustic guitar piece. It reminded me of an English Folk/children's song thing (a bit like the theme to Trumpton - the kid's telly series…

Written/Recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). This one had a backing track written on Piano, and sounded somewhat 'Elton John', before the lyric and vocal melody joined the party. The stripping out of the piano at the start has made this…

Written/Recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). An instrumental, and quite a bit different to much of more RPM output. This stylistically is an area I sometimes work in when making music for media. The reference points when listening should…

Written/Recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). I won't pretend this isn't a weird one. The rhythms right with one another, the harmony is unsettling, and towards the end it points towards the next song on the album, in a quite electronic…

Written/Recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). A bit of a weird song, written on guitar (and it shows). A slightly unsettling chord movement which fights the prettiness at points, I think. The backwards guitar and wailing at the end was…

Written/recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). This one was written on Ukulele, (well that opening section was), and built upon that. The tongue in cheek lyric, is somewhat inspired by a friend who has recently become single, and isn't all…

Written for the RPM2017 (album in a month) challenge. The 70s vibe should be obvious, and this was written on electric piano, (unusually for me). The opening keys riff is one of the only moderately funky sounding things I can play. I am not…

Written/recorded for RPM2017 (album in a month). The last song I wrote for RPM2017 (being entirely written and recorded on 26th and 28th Feb). It should be obvious that this is a tribute to George Harrison - I'd listened to the album "Brainwashed…

The first song I wrote for RPM2017, and the first one on this 'album'. It was witten on Ukulele with two whole chords (Chord one is a barre at the second fret, and chord two is all of the strings open). Whilst not the most musically sophisticated…

A slightly schizo soppy/sexy pop song. Written and recorded 15th/16th Feb 2016 (as part of RPM challenge). I'm channeling some 70's pop ballads and (somewhat) Barry White here. I'll not do it again, I promise. x

A poppy song, written and recorded on Feb 12th/13th 2016 as part of the RPM Challenge. Of moderate interest, I first wrote and recorded (and basically finished) the music, although not the structure. After that I started work on the top-line…

Probably not the final title! My first song RPM2016, written/recorded evening of 3rd Feb.

I'm channeling my inner Johnny Cash here, for this quick and dirty demo of a song I wrote for my musical "Lashing Of Ginger Beer". The lyric is rather more dark than the music might suggest. All the world is changing It never stays the…

I enjoyed twanging lots of guitars. For best results, copy to, and listen via a slightly stretched C90 cassette. P.S. Yes, I love Cocteau Twins. No, I can't sing like Elizabeth Fraser.

A very slight excursion (a song-ette) where I'm seeing if I can sing lower than the Uke I've borrowed (I can). I'm making up the words as I go along, but seem to be channelling rather depressing subject matter. With this recording, pace is everything…

I borrowed a Ukelele a couple of days ago, and yesterday - having a day free (and after working out where to put my fingers), I came up with this rather rough and ready little song. Ukelele Of Truth Must we pretend we'll still be friends…
