Influences: The memory of colours screaming...
Part-time toad sexer and amateur amoeba mechanic.
Spanks planks as a form of vindictive fun. Makes others listen to the results as a form of narcissistic masochism.
Closeted in a dream castle overlooking the mystical village of Upper Trendleby Down, waited on by three cowbell-addicted gargoyles and tolerated by two furry familiars.
Has a guest residency at the local hostelry, the Werewolf and Afterbirth, but often fails to turn up - much to the relief of the assorted denizens of the village.
His spirit animal is corned beef hash and his reflection shows not in mirrors.

Thanks for reading/listening and for your kind comments. How many sugars do you take in your coffee to make you so sweet?
Thanks for visiting 'The Cellar Door', I really like this song and oddbod made it ever better by recording a solo on resonator guitar for me. It's worth just skipping through 2/3 of it to hear it. He is ace and so are you for listening!
Ta for your comment on the Pickle collab. Metalfoot's got talent.
Thanks for the mention in the Recommended thread. (Not that I'm complaining but amazingly you're the 4th person to mention "Only Human" there!!)
It wasn't an "apology", it was a warning about sketchy vocals! LOL! Thanks for listening to "Gloria" despite my warning, you are very helpful in boosting my confidence!
Paul - thank you so much for your verbally expansive comment on my latest opus, The Gift Of Silence.
I am being encouraged to actually record the piece myself, with Biscuit singing the lead and Thomas singing the more operatic choruses.
Any ideas ?
Thanks for the listen on Nadia's lyrics + my rendering! 😀
Thank you! And you can totally thank my three year old for the chorus. He sang that same line over and over and over for about a half an hour this morning. I couldn't get it out of my head...hence...new song!
Thank you for your great support Paul! Your visit was truly special.
And thank you for your beautiful comment on my collaboration with Mike.
Thank you also for your wonderful comment on my collaboration with Alex.
Thank you Paul for your beautiful comment on my dark spooky lyric.
I might need your help on a song again if you are up for it 😀
haha.. *everyone* is grumpy before coffee... I don't think I'm even human
Thanks for the watchlist 😀 your stuff stayed on my mind while working my sunday shift at work so I came back when i found a moment. Definately will be checking rest of your songs out when i have some listening time!
Decades?! But I want to play like that before Fawm 18!! 😝
Your artist bio is epic!
aww yeah!! Shoot me your email and I'll send it along when I get a chance
Thanks for listening and for your comments/support. 😀 Congrats on being ahead! I look forward to listening to your music soon! especially with the tags you have!!!
Aww thank you for the Thomas love on his song 😀 The farrier is coming every 3 months now, and his hooves are almost back to normal !! Something the previous farrier never managed 😞 So Thomas the organic donkey is a happy donkey 😀 x
Hey DD, I've got a song that could use some plank spanking... you up for it??
Thanks for listening and commenting--I was beginning to worry about my little zong.
Yeah I love it when ideas get sparked out of a comment someone makes or a conversation. Some of my best ideas have come to me like that.
Thanks for posting a link to "Stop Making Me" in the recommended thread.
I'm extremely flattered. I've had some very positive feedback this year, although my progress is proving to be a little slower than last year.
You've stumbled on to my secret. I am right next to you. Over behind the speaker...
Good to hear from you, and your tunes! Happy FAWMing!
Thank you for the song feedback on Can't Let it Go so Let it Be, always welcome and always encouraging ,you're a gem!
Thanks, Paul, for your comment on 'What Alchemy Was It'. 😀
It's funny you mentioned a forties musical, because that was my exact thought as the lyric unfolded. 😉
Thank you so much! Your words are very timely and encouraging. I see that I have some catching up to do on your songs!
😁 The FAWMlet is healthy and happy; she had a birthday party yesterday so I didn't get much songwriting time, but that's okay. Trying to make up for it some today. She's gonna go see her grandparents now though. Big weekend for her!
Thank you for the nice comment! We're looking forward to listening to your stuff too.
Welcome back DD! It's always a pleasure to hear your tunes 😀
Thanks for the great comment Paul. It means a lot! 😀
Thanks for listening to my song "Underneath The Tree", I appreciate it.
I"m so sorry I haven't reviewed your work yet - planning to do it today after lunch (in the middle of a job hunt, but that's no excuse)
Congratulations for making it to the Century Club!
Hey Paul! Thanks for dropping in on my song. I see you've been busy! Good for you. Will take a listen.
Jeez Paul, you are off to a flyer, thank's for taking the time to listen and comment, I'll pop back later to hear what you've been writing.
Hi darlin, thanks for visiting and for your kind words. I have demos up, if you want to listen. 😀
Thanks DD 😁 I'm not sure what metre means but glad it's good! Loving your stuff 😀
Thanks for the comments on Mission To...
I've started using Reaper as well...I'll have to experiment with the instrument plug-ins more. Sounds great!
Thank you Paul, it's good to be on common wavelength now and then!
Just thought that Jeffrey and his friends would like to know that the Raygun Girls 'Zombie Dolphins' song it now up 😀
Hey - I just wanted to drop by and let you know I was thinking about you! Carry on, good sir!
...and on another note - I'm revealing it to you know that I'm trying to keep pace with you. I used to do it with Nancy early on...just to see if I could match her output. I think of it as a healthy challenge for me!
Thanks for leaving a comment on "It's up to You." Glad you liked it.
Hi DD., glad you liked my political satire song. More fun than ranting like I have been doing for months 😀
Oh, and for "Nightmare" - very pleased with how that turned out, to be honest. Glad to hear that it sent multiple people on a bit of a journey. That's one of my benchmarks for when music becomes a song. 😀
Thanks for the feedback. Always good to know that there were hidden gems among something I wasn't particularly happy with.
Excellent... I suspected it was likely the "new top secret prototype", and the Schecter is pretty much your favorite, right? Well, I mean Frankie, of course.... but. 😀 My brother guatecoop is having fun with lots of 60's and 70's tube and SS preamps he found online for not very much. You two would get along famously talking gear and getting "that guitar sound" 😀
I never turn my headphones down when I listen to your stuff. remember that Maxell ad back in the day? The guy in the chair? 😉
Another year, another FAWM, excited to hear what you come up with this month!
Hi Paul. Your bio provided me with a much needed and long overdue giggle this morning. Whilst having my own denizen of gargoyles, I am astonished at their skill in deferring evil spirits. However much to my dismay, they have proven quite ineffective where ex-spouses are involved.
Now it seems that since I've no castle of my own, I shall return to the belfry with my loyal, furry, and often rather vocal companions.
Having delivered this truly useless observation, I simply wish to say... Oh damn, I've forgotten...
Hey man, I can't wait to hear what you invent this time around! Light it up.
Thanks, Paul! Thanks for the comment!
Anytime, such a beautifull and heartfelt piece, was at a loss for words so a simple "lovely" had to do it. Keep at it, love what you do!
OoohhH! Looks like we both have one up on the first day!! Thanks so much for your kind comments on Fireball Whisky! I think you are hearing something similar in your head that I am as well 😀
I'm not quite sure what a barmy is lol... but I'm glad you liked my song. Sorry about the milk.
I'm glad you enjoyed the lyrics for Manic Love song 😀 I'll let you know when its recorded ! Thank you 😀
Hey, thanks for your kind words on my viola track! Best wishes for a successful FAWM.
I think it worked perfectly. It doesn't hurt to try something a little different. Adds to the creative juices we need to be flowing this time of year.
See You In The Shadows…
Thank you for your great comment on Winds. I'm glad I achieved the sense of emptiness.
See You In The Shadows…
Great feedback, thanks so much for all of that! You got it and it was intentional so I am very happy to hear it came through...I appreciate you taking the time to listen!!
Thanks Paul! I am very close!
Thanks for your comment on Sculpture! My son had bought more coffee-but it was in the car. So I am saved! 😀
Thanks for your kind words on my alphabet song!
Hey! I wish you a lovely and creative FAWM-time!
Hey there DD, I sure am here, and I'm ready to dive straight into the musical ocean without a life jacket!
I hope you're ready!
Hello. Looking forward to new music from you!
Dude - and yourself!
Thanks for the welcome!
Hooray! Hello, fellow Hudson. Have an excellent FAWM.
✨🔥🤘🐲🎸🔥✨!!!! Looking forward to hearing more of your kick-ass guitar playing this FAWM!! Happy FAWMing Dragon!
Hi Paul, will have the odd libation, new amp to stimulate the creatives.
I'm here. You're here. What could go wrong? 😀 Bring yummy stuff, my friend.
Hello Friend, you always have my ear.
Welcome back Paul - Can't wait to hear your plunky guitar thingee this year!!
Sweet! Cross-generation 😃
Hey! Thank you, that's the plan and we'll see how it pans out 😁 Just scheduled a guitar lesson in for this coming Saturday actually in a bid to turn into competent guitarist. Better late then never 😬Looking forward to hearing your material!
Hi Paul, yes, to creativity.
Have a great Fawm.
So fun to see the gang already in the playground! Our collabs always bring a smile to my lips! Have fun!
great to see you back for another year
hope your guitars are lean & mean & breathing fire!
dont point them at the net curtains
Hi Paul. Happy Fawm.
ah, I see the moat is filled with the usual beasts... good, good. And I see the drawbridge is sturdy .. good, good. The outer watch tower might need some redecorating though, I shall call my people and let them call your people
Owd yuh oss-uzz!
Gizza gozz... Gerrum in then
Is a bear Catholic?
Does the pope shit in the woods?
Wait, let me proofread that...
Good to see you again, Paul, and apparently in fine fettle. 😀
