Horne's Gift Shop 16


Whitby UK   Feb 2018


Artist Bio

Influences:   I wish I'd written "Lake Marie" by John Prine, "Daylight" by The Drive-By Truckers, "River" by Joni Mitchell, "King Of Eyes" by Kempez, and "Talk Of The Town" by The Pretenders.

I'm Jon Horne. If you like the words, more of them can be found in/ordered from your local bookshop, which you should definitely be supporting, these days more than ever. Failing that, try this handy evil corporate behemoth: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jon-Horne/e/B01MUG1341%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt...

If you like the noises, click the Bandcamp link. Includes the obligatory lockdown album, for which I employed a proper microphone and more than one instrument.

Previous FAWM demos in traditional dog-rough lo-fi are on my old (and full) Soundcloud account, https://soundcloud.com/basscommavocal/albums. The Soundcloud link at the top is a brand new one, set up for this year's models.

Collaborations are hugely welcome, in megabyte form and in real life. Hanging out with fellow musicians is a̷l̷w̷a̷y̷s̷ mostly a joy.

    Hi Jon. Thank you for your kind comment. You are welcome to play the song. It means a lot that somebody would want to. I don't really want to make it available for download as it is a rough demo and I am going to be doing work on it. Polishing the lyrics and what not. But chords are pretty simple and the lyrics are on FAWM? If you are a member of the PRS, I would appreciate it if you threw some royalties my way by registering it on your set list 😀

    Hi there 😀 Yes, you are welcome to FAWMiversion 'I Won't Concede' 😀 But please note that I will be using the lyrics commercially post FAWM, so this will be a FAWM collab 😀 Thank you !

    Hey there, the anything goes corpse round 2 is ready: https://fawm.org/songs/119844/

  • @quork  Feb 16

    Hi Jon, glad you enjoyed it. Should be downloadable now.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 10

    I am shocked and appalled at the deception! Fancy thinking you can apply poetic license to a song?!?!!!! 🤣 ha ha!

  • @jonmeta  Feb 10

    Jon, I'd love to hear your thoughts / improvements. My gmail is in my profile. Yes, I know the drums are the weak point, in fact I didn't touch them (FAWM, you know) so there are no appropriate accents, fills, blahblah.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 8

    No worries! Was just checking in.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 8

    Hi Jon! I'm after you in the Anything Goes Exquisite Corpse. Thought I'd check in and see how things are going or if you've even received the piece before yours.


  • @cellarrob Feb 3

    Sorry about the link issue! It should be public now. Thanks for the update!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 2


    It's a little nutty to go off of I know, but I can try to answer any questions if you have any 😁 Am/Dsusish were only chords played, I did the drumming so its rougly 4/4 roughly probably 90bpm 😁

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 2

    Thanks for your comments on "Strato-FAWMing".

  • @apolez3 Feb 1

    Hey Happy FAWMing!

    Cheers, Jon! I'm really looking forward to it. 😀

  • @jonmeta  Jan 29

    Hey Jon, it's great to see you back again! I'm looking forward to your creations.

  • @gregwere Jan 27

    Thanks for the tip re: Soundcloud - I'll look into it. Cheers Greg

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Jan 23

    Cheers! I'm just up the road from you in Durham...thought I'd pop in and say "hello" 😀

  • @judypie  Jan 21

    Greetings! 😁

  • @gardeningangel1  Jan 19

    Glad to see you here! It is a strange new world indeed. Maybe there will be a song about the empty trains, wondering where all the people have gone? Happy FAWMing!

  • @quork  Jan 17

    Happy FAWMing, Jon.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 16

    Nice to meet you Jon! Hopefully more musicians can hang out together in real life again as soon as possible!
