Influences: Raised in the 80s, so I'm pretty much equally influenced by singer songwriters and blues rock, post punk and electro pop, obscure indie and chart bangers. I love it all, basically.
I'm, Neil, a writer and musician from Glasgow, Scotland. I've been songwriting on and off since the 80s, for myself and for various bands, including the much-missed murnie (https://murnie.bandcamp.com). Musically and lyrically, expect the unexpected. I'm really not a fan of the expected (except when it's absolutely the right thing to do, and even then you'll have to twist my arm).
As of 2020, I've started releasing my FAWM songs under the soubriquet: The Disappointed Skeptics Club (https://thedisappointedskepticsclub.b...).
2021 is FAWM number four for me. Last year was the first year that I succeeded in properly recording and releasing an album of FAWM songs. This year my aim is to repeat that feat. And, since last year's songs ended up being a stylistic rummage through my musical past, I think I'm going to try and focus on developing a consistent contemporary sound.
Lyrically, this year's theme is gonna be: Monsters.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
I'm so looking forward to hearing some monster tunes! Have a great FAWM. 😀
Have a most wonderful FAWM! I'm excited to hear all about MONSTERS.
I had to join the Scottish corner, as FAWM's resident Highland Piper. 😉
Happy and creative FAWMing in 2021 Neil!! Oh you're going to laugh I am driving 90 minutes to Ontario today to go get some quality Haggis. A Man's A Man... for A' That! 😉
Monsters... nice one. I’m drawing a complete blank this year (apart from the obvious of making a covid-documentary, which I rather think no one will want to hear!). I know we don’t have to have a theme, but the last three years I have and it’s been my motivation...
And to you! Beaming many hearts to Glasgow, brother.
good to see you here!
Looking forward to what you come up with this FAWM, Neil!
It was you who advised me of this place, so all that happens from here is on you! Looks like a fun community, thanks for the heads up.
Hi Neil. Lovely to see you back on here. Looking forward to listening 😀
Ha ha, indeed!
Hey Neil! Looking forward to this Feb! Good to see you active here ☺️
