Hi. My name is Dan, I'm from Auckland, and I write and record songs under the names Anecdata (formerly Radio Over Moscow) / Dharma Police / Planet Claire.

Anecdata is for rock-inspired stuff. There were two albums in 2017 - 'But Her Emails...' and 'You Do Not Do'.

Dharma Police is retro-inspired synthpop, with lyrical themes often heavily leaning on the best TV show of all time, Lost... it began in FAWM 2011 when I wrote a bunch of Lost-inspired tunes, and there you go.

Planet Claire is instrumental electronic noodlings and other bits and bobs. Minus my voice.

Downloads etc at my website,


PS. Half of what I post on the forums isn't meant to be taken literally. Literally half.

    Thanks for that Ian Curtis roller-coaster video. Top drawer. I'm still laughing!

    I'm guessing by helix you mean That looks pretty good damn awesome, way outside my price range though 😢

    Nice! Whenever I try to program drums I always lose my patience before I get any desirable results, so i'm always impressed when I hear it done really effectively! Makes me want to take some more stabs at it.

    Thanks for the comment. It DOES sound a little like 'Money For Nothing.' I actually saw your Baddass Riff thread before FAWM started and thought it was a great idea. Thrilled to be included!

    Missing Persons is an acquired taste, that gets sour quickly. Lots of 80's music is like that to me. I get an urge for it, binge for a little bit, then put it away.

    It's a common phrase, so I figured it'd been used in some musical form. I just like the joke of using that as the first title on something.

    Haha yeah! Pinkerton ftw!

  • @jji7skyline  2 weeks

    Wow we have very similar influences!

  • @odilongreen  3 weeks

    Glad to see you're here! Even with a tooth-pulling perhaps slowing you down, I'm looking forward to whatever you come out with. (And no, a video game expansion is *not* a valid excuse for slacking off your songwriting responsibilities!)

  • @chasingandromeda  4 weeks

    Sure hope to hear from you this year!

    Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
