Influences: Stuff you cant hear on the radio or any known piece of circuitry.
I dip a toe in the avant gardes, I bath in the experimental, I rub myself down with punk.
Peeps, you must approach my music as you would a wild dog who has a winning lottery ticket ducktaped to his balls.
I don't do normal, ok. If you want pretty melodies and cliches you got the wrong page.
I use guitar and drums and Kontakt.

Thanks for listening and commenting on "Adios Amigos". What messed me up on the solo was what I think is a key change halfway through. Didn't have enough time to figure out an appropriate scale or get a good feel for the progression. But I love that Spanish progression. Lots of fun to play.
Re: The Sad Sorry Sounds Intoxication... yeah, I like that distortion like a kid likes its toy, you got that right. And re: out of body transit... well. it's a guitar...but with all these tasty plugins it does sometimes sound like something between a guitar and a synth.
Anyway.. thanks for your comments and moreover, thanks for sharing your music and exclusive weirdness.
FAWM, would be the poorer without what you do. Don't get me wrong, I like a bit of girl/guy with guitar/piano sometimes, but it's diversity that makes the world go around 😎
Man, what a ride!
Thank you for inviting me back over to your page. I feel like my musical horizons have been expanded by yanking them out through my nostrils, stretching them over a mountain range for a few days, then ramming them back in place. With spoons.
Seriously though, I seriously admire your creativity and inventiveness, and I'm really glad you shared these tunes with us 😁
Hey thanks for the nice feedback! I love feedback. It may be a bit long, yes. Also needs more dynamic variation. So the other song was fun with my brother and he's not across town....he's about a 4 hour drive from me! Modern technology is cool. Makes good things possible. Cheers!
Adaptation - Almost all guatecoop and then me on bass. He's looser and more edgy than I am. In a good way.
Joyous - Yep. A bit long, kind of on purpose and kind of accidental. (went in to write an epic 12 string) but it's going to get vocals which will make it worth it. 😀
Thanks for the album swap - that was very fun. 😀
p.s. - Cosmic Scream is *hard* to mix... Still tweaking and will be for a while, lol. There's so many guitars. btw, Brian uses a violin bow to get crazy sustain. Top secret info right there. 😀
Thanks for the swap and the listens... I like what I'm reading already, because as you know... i don't do a lot of 'normal' myself. 😀
Hope to see you around in future, SM. You're a unique talent not just for your sounds...but there's something really fascinating about your whole outlook on things too. Keep up the great work. And thanks very much for all your help and encouragement over the last month or so. You've been a massive help.
Thanx for all the fantastic music this February!
Thanks for the comment on "Where I'm Going." It's cool when the magic hits right as you're about to shut things down. Not sure I could play it again, but there it was!
Hey man, cheers again. I had great fun writing VJS. Glad to hear it hits the spot.
Thanks, mister. Keep on bringing it on!
Cheers Silver. Yup loving the surf geetar stuff
Thanks for the comment on Matty Groves. I'm loving White Barry White.
Thanx again for the comments. Yes, harmonium, Melodica, harmonica, and accordion all have more or less the same kind of reeds. I love to pitch shift my Melodica to make it sound like other things.
The worst part of it is that the only real used record store in the entire area was flooded out this winter. A pipe froze and burst on the floor above and he lost his entire Soul, Funk, and R&B section, as I said in the song.
I really feel bad for him; he's such a nice guy.
Thanx for the shoutout!!
I'm so happy to be the inspiration for such an awesome track!!
Keep that weirdness coming!!
Heck no, it would be an honour. 😀
Ooh, and I’ll check that band out, thanks!
Ha ha, apologies for the lack of harp on the Dobbing in Blues! Felt I needed a break and it was certainly refreshing for me... Thanks for your kind words!
Thanx for the comment on "Kitchen Scissors..."
The words are actually a messed-up synopsis of the film "Eraserhead".
I can't take credit for them; thank Wikipedia and Google Translate!
Thanx for the comments.
Now I have to write a song called "Freakshow Apocalypse".
Thank you for your kind words on "Start Again".
Yeah I'm a t**t Silver. Noobie stuff eh. Glad you're still knocking out inventive and original material. Not a lot of people are
...and I've never heard of Georges Perec, but I just looked him up. Thanx for turning me on to him! I gotta track down his books now!
Thanx for the comment and Thanx for getting the Pataphysics reference!
Thanks for the encouragement, man. No cliches! *salutes
Thanks for the kind words! Appreciate it! I'm on several music forums and ended up here this year, so lets see if I get this one right, I think we recognise each other from the songwriter forum uk?!?! Is that it?!! I think it is! Cheers, Peter!
Ha ha, what a thought to make him do his homework out in the rain! That probably would be a step too far, though living in the North of England, we do have plenty of it! Thanks for your comment on Homework Sucks!
Dude, you've really upped your game this February.
Keep 'em coming!!
"Ambient sausage plait" is *totally* the name of my next band.
Bring it on!!
Hey! Looking forward to your craziness.
great to see you here 😀
Welcome! I really hope you have a great month of writing and make lots of new friends. 😀
Well hello there, Mr Machine.
I am very much looking forwards to more mad stylings from your good self!
(Great bio, by the way)
Hey dude, glad you're back!
I'm still planning to use those tracks you sent me for a collab some time in February.
Will the three-legged-pirate make a comeback?
Welcome!! I'm glad you've joined us! I'm into it!
Hey man, hope to hear more crazy action from you again!
