Hi, I'm Pete.

Let's make some chooooooons. Have a fun FAWM. I'll try and pop by at some point to exchange pleasantries.

** I have a new album out on 8th March 2020, and as your attorney I strongly advise you to go to my Bandcamp and pre-order it now **

Check out my old Medway friends, they are always good value
@tomski (my old bandmate)
@girlsinuniform (my oldest friend and inebriation partner)
and of course, 'er indoors, the adorable


    Leave a message. Log in to FAWM or sign up first!

    hey, thanks for commenting on all my songs after FAWM finished! i can't believe I never considered that about two hands... but you're right, I mean it totally sounds like that. And perhaps is, subconsciously.

  • @splittybooms  Mar 9

    Also, the movie inspiration for 'Zone' was Sonic the hedgehog lol
    I just took a bit of the melody from the intro to Sonic 2 and slowed it down a bit.
    And the drum sounds used in this one are from various packs and stuff I've collected over time.

  • @splittybooms  Mar 8

    Just wanted to say thanks for listening and commenting on so much of my stuff. You're one of my absolute favorites here to just sit and listen to and it means a lot. Very encouraging and helps my waning confidence.
    Let's make a song next year!

  • @adforperu  Mar 6

    You're a listening machine, and very entertaining commenter - thank you very much, and congrats to you too - 14 schmorteen.

    Oh no problem, this shit writes itself:

    My heart's in my throat
    oh fuck, and damn
    Nobody can drive in Nottingham
    You're a hundred years old
    I'll take your licence, Gran
    Nobody can drive in Nottingham

    Hear my drum and bass!
    Hear my engine purr!
    Not even I can drive in Loughborough
    Somebody please,
    be my chauffeur?
    Because nobody can drive in Loughborough

  • @adforperu  Mar 3

    Thanks for the listening sesh, but I burst out laughing at the ambigeous nature of "I feel like I'm in some mysterious old forest covered in moss."

  • @rayboneor  Mar 2

    Thanks for all the listens! Here at fresh spotless youth enterprises we have a dosimeter badge to make sure no one exceeds the maximum daily dose. I regret to inform you that you've gone over and may suffer longterm consequences

  • @owl  Mar 2

    Thanks for the comment blitz! Off to do a bit of listening to yours in turn, I'm woefully behind with commenting.

  • @rayboneor  Feb 14

    Hi Pete! It was nice of you to stop by and listen to so many songs. I especially appreciated that you listened to the Odysseus/Fourth One pair back to back. That song just has two chords rocking back and forth, so you can do a lot of different things with it. I think Vom should throw it out there as a challenge: see how many different versions people come up with. I'm working on another one!

  • @cowex  Feb 12

    Aweeesome, thanks for posting clips. I've been light on FAWM lately but I'm totally looking forward to fitting some of these into the puzzle.

  • @judypie  Feb 9

    Thank you for your listens Pete! Eve is largely about eating the forbidden fruit and not giving a shit about what anyone else is saying. Eve is a state of mind!

  • @girlsinuniform Feb 6

    I'll see what I can do. Good work mate, solid start!

  • @owl  Feb 3

    Thank you for commenting on "Squid Linguistics"! I'm pleased to see that "Rack Off" video is BACK, I'll have to check in later and listen 😀

  • @evinwolverton Feb 2

    Thank you!! That's so good to hear. I'm traveling for another 10 days, but then will hit the record button hard.

  • @circle Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment! I always use fingers to pick, only ever use a plectrum for strumming. Never learned how to use it properly for picking, it didn't seem important because I never needed to SHRED. The picking in that song sounds quite strong because of unholy compression I think

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 2

    Thanks! If you're gonna have big guitars, gotta make them the biggest.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 2

    You are right. Wobble has 3 elements one is phat beat one is wobble bass distortion, the third i forget!

  • @cowex  Feb 2

    Huh. For some reason I thought we were dealing in distortion land, but I'll have to pay attention to the EQ. Thanks!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 1

    Hopefully we'll get white dog turds back now that we're no longer "slaves" to "legislation". Cos that's what it's all about, isn't it? Not been the same country since they got rid of white dog shit.

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 1

    PMSAD - a portmanteau of the acronymic reasons for my bad mood at band practice the other day

  • @nateger  Feb 1

    Thank you so much for the thoughtful words on my tune! It's amazing to see when I get out of my own way that the songs just want to be written and it's not a struggle. I'm excited to see what you have in store. I'm gonna listen to Rack Off right now 😀

  • @tomski  Feb 1

    Looking forward to hearing what delights you have in store. Any plans for 90s footballers again? I'm going to throw Jurgen Klinsmann and Denis Erwin into the hat!! Hit me up for a collaboration (my time is limited but I've always got room for some PG Lover!)

  • @cowex  Feb 1

    Dude - any chance I can talk you into submitting a clip(s) for this challenge? I'm baking a cake and I want your eggs.

  • @circle Jan 23


    Thanks for asking! Yes, I'll be participating again this year

    Maybe I'll hit 14 this time??? unlikely, but we must push ourselves eh

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 21

    Haha, clearly I'm really influenced by them!

  • @owl  Jan 20

    O hai are you doing FAWM this year? See you here I hope!

  • @judypie  Jan 18


  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 18

    You're gonna FAWM the FAWM outta this FAWMing FAWM, ain'tcha?

  • @tcelliott  Jan 16

    Hi, Pete. Good to see you around.

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 16

    Wotcha. Hope you are around this year!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 15

    BLOSTY! Can I call you Blosty? I’m already regretting it.

    Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year, I’ll let you know if I need a rap on my anti-Mourinho/Pochettino break-up concept album

  • @adforperu  Jan 13

    Well, hello!
