Influences: Far too many but a few are....Beatles, Brian Wilson, mozart, Debussey, Stone Roses, Carpenters, Arctic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, New Order, Shack, The Las, Status Quo, Burt Bacharach, The Kinks, Super Furry Animals and more melodic beautifilicious people!!
Hello there FAWM family,
Very sadly for me, i won't be partaking this year as am off to Thailand for 6 weeks this week. Although will have my phone with me so maybe i could be all technical and figure out how to get phone recordings on the site (last travels i had a laptop).
HOWEVER, i fully intend to comment and listen my ass off out there and Also want to reconnect with all the wondeful people of FAWM. I was a bit rubbish after last year's FAWM as had the stress of starting my own business which meant supply teaching in the day and teaching in the evening to make ends meet.
But this year i fully intend to do as many collaborations and maybe make lots of diverse albums with as many of you as possible post FAWM.
SO please message me if i contacted you about this last year or during last year or simply if you like my stuff and want to do some stuff anyway.
I have created a pre FAWM EP (so i did a mini JAWM) of 6 rather anthemic tracks so do pop along for a listen. You will also find my two released albums from 2018 there as well. YAY
Also feel free to befriend my on FACEbook as i always wanting more musical connections around this tiny world of ours.
Look forward to hearing you all and chewing the musical cud whilst in my hammock xxxx

Thank you for your kind comments on "You"!
Thank you so much. Looking forward to listening to your Thai inspired tracks. (Playing catch-up) When are you leaving? We might be there in April.
Thanks hon. I'm so behind on listening, but hopefully you'll be around the next few days or so! I'm gigging tomorrow so trying to practice with a post-FAWM brain...zzzzzz...
Hi man. I apppreciate your comments and participation even though your'e on the othee side of the world, hope you had a blast, have fun in your next destination.
Thanks for your lovely comments as always buddy! That solo is my Fender Telecaster. I've had plenty of use out of it this time around 😊
Thanks for watching, and thanks for the awesome song! 😀
Thanks for visiting my consequences song.
You're a legend, Karlos. I struggle to get FAWM done when living a normal life, and you somehow pull it off on the road. I've been in rural Victoria for most of the month - wouldn't be surprised if the internet's worse here than in Thailand. Feeling really guilty, but basically given up trying to keep on top of my watchlist and planning a big listening binge in March. See you then, mate. Five more - you can do it!
I wish I had an instrumental I could through your way. I don't at the moment though. If something happens I'll let you know!
Aw, thank you so so much!!! I'm hoping to catch up on lots of listening this week. YOU sir are amazing for writing so many songs during your travels.
Hi Karl, please let me know which track you liked for collaboration or whether I could send you any of mine.
Dude. Was it you that was asking for backing tracks? I have an acoustic guitar track (with simple bass and light drums) if you want it. I don't see an email. If I'm mistaken or it's too late in Fawm, no worries.
Backing Track link: http://www.helenseviltwin.com/tcellio...
pigfarmerjr (at) gmail (dot) com if you need to get in touch with me (for any reason, such as you want a WAV file for instance.)
Karlos! Thank you so much for all your thoughtful feedback and encouraging comments! I feel so lucky that we've connected 😀 Jealous that you're listening from a hammock, since I'm smack in the middle of snowy/slushy NYC. Re: the chords for "Tender Wet Tumor," I have no idea but you're probably right, I often choose partial chords when I finger pick and just choose what sounds good (but not necessarily right). Would love to collaborate of course! Gotta catch up on my own listening this evening and into the weekend! Angelina
Hey mate, thanks for reaching out for a collab, but unfortunately I'm a bit pressed for time with a few other collabs in the pipes and time is running low. Let's touch base about it next time round aye!
Hahahaha Karl! I wondered what you meant by ‘pathetic clapping’! I was like, THERES NO PATHETIC CLAPPING IN MY SONG. Do you mean the horse clopping we put in? 😂😂 I’m dead. And very sad if this didn’t come across hahahahah
Well I’d like to say I got on a plane to California and then we hashed it out in 24 hours in the studio with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Venice Beach.. alas, I just emailed a few lines n chords over and @iwilleatyou waved his magic wand and sent it back to me all fresh n fullformed 😀 I have no idea who Ian Rush is but I look forward to your impression when you get back 😝
Beauty of collab and following your instincts, pal 👍🏻
Thank you fro your very kind words on "Call Me Maybe". I did 3 skirmishes the first Saturday so I was able to get a lot of songs under my belt pretty quickly.
Really happy with your setting of "When You're Sleeping," with a more detailed comment posted with the song. If you do want to make a more polished version later, let me know if some lyrical tweaks are in order...thanks, and travel well
So glad you made it this year after all! I look forward to listening after work 😀
Thank you so much for your comments on "I can love you for today." I know you know that feeling when something just comes down right!. I've enjoyed reading all about your new Endeavors! All the best to you.
Thank you, Karlos. I look forward to hear what you come up with.
What! What a weird algorithm on the news feed! Don’t they know you’re my biggest fan?! 😝 I always love reading your well thought out comments 😀 I have been well busy yes! Keep meaning to take a break but then another song comes crashing out! I am working lates this week though so there may be a break in productivity. Hope Thailand is still LUSH! X
Oh gosh, it sounds truly like hell on earth. However will you manage drinking all those coconuts? 😉
Oh I do fancy that!! Anything you want to do. I’m glad that things are going well over there. I would love to visit that area. I’ve spent a lot of time in Central America, which is kind of a similar climate and ecology, but very different culturally. Going to the Far East from here is quite an undertaking with 2 kids. Someday though.
How are things with you in Thailand?
Thank you Karlos for the kind words on my song Birth, and it's good to see you again too (internet-wise). 😀
Thanks mate. Yes it's live from my living room:)
I am happy to see your here. I will check your songs to which I also obviously missed
Karl! Thanks! Of course you always have my permission. Having my songs covered is one of the biggest honours for me (although it's only happened once, when Maddie did one of my tunes).
If you do ever do it, and you need me to send the chords, just let me know.
:: thumbs up ::
Hope all is well on your travels!
Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. 😀
Haha Karl, your comments always make me smile 😀 Nice to have a fan in Thailand! Don't you worry about Ad, I have a VERY vivid imagination so it's not hard for me to write songs entirely removed from reality. Plus I'm totally gonna untie him and feed him soon..
Great to see you back, mate. "Sadly" off to Thailand - nice problem to have! Downloading your song now, be back later to comment. Have an excellent journey/FAWM.
Hey, glad you'll at least be in the vicinity this year even if not posting regularly!
Hi Karlos! Great to see you here again! I’ll be back to listen to your song!
Hey!! Enjoy Thailand. Looking forward to hearing you stuff. 😀
Hello and thanks for stopping by my board! Hard to believe that it’s Feb again. I look forward to hearing your new music sent all the way from Thailand. Would love to visit there sometime...
Um, YES!!!! I'm so glad you found a way to be here!!! <3
And yeah, I'm TOTALLY down for trying to collab. 😀
Hi Karl, so happy to hear from you. I always like collaborating with you. Looking forward to our collaborations on FAWM and beyond.
Hey man! It's great to be back! I hope the Thai-fi allows you to FAWM to your heart's content. I'll check out your JAWM later!
Hellooo, lovely to see you back! Wtf you are always in Koh Phanang, I'm jelly! I'm sure I told you already but I did my yoga teacher training for 6 weeks Haat Tien (I thiiiink? near the Sanctuary), I was so happy there. Anyways glad to see you can still smash out some songs there, will have a listen xx
Heheheh no rush, we have a whole month! Though.. it is a short one, quick send something!! 😝
Thailand for 6 weeks sounds awesome! Lucky you! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! 😀
LOL man you cracked me. Haha I can imagine a crazy guy singing in the balcony in a foreign country and people just think stuff about him... DAMN, epic. Surreal picture. Damn I'm so happy fawm started.
Hahaha well I wonder how it can be any more laughable than my own studio which is my bed 😁 Send away dude! 😀
But Karl... someone forgot to lend me their acoustic didn't they? Remember I said mine was bust?! Ha!
The smile on my heart when I see you uploaded your first song! Yes!
Heya Karl! Hope you're having a great time on your travels. I got your new album, but things have been stupid around here, and I've only listened to around a third of it so far. Love what I've heard, and I'll be listening to the rest soon. I'm always so impressed at how your albums actually sound like albums, unlike my own albums, which to my ears sound like demos. It's something about the depth in the sound that you manage to get, like it has that gluey quality that proper albums have.
Thanks! I'm jealous of the motorscooter in your pic. 😀
Do it! 😀
Hi man. I know you might not be around, but I hope to see you anyway. Enjoy February!
You are quite welcome, my friend! If I can help I'd be happy to!
I recall one day reading your comment on one of my songs and your comment was as lovely as a song. You talked about sitting (in Thailand?) and having spotty internet. And then the net connection came up and you listened to my song and left a lovely comment. Such a warm FAWM memory!
Hey babe have an awesome fawm
I miss you already! I hope you can find a way to participate during your travels!!! 😊❤
Hey there! I can’t wait to hear what cool ideas you have this year.
