Hi. My name is Dan, I'm from Auckland, and I write and record songs under the names Anecdata / Dharma Police / Planet Claire.

This year I'll be writing about conspiracy theories and other fringe kind of stuff.
DISCLAIMER: *Nothing* in any lyric I write this FAWM should necessarily be considered as my own personal beliefs. I will be writing in character a lot of the time. Much of it will be stream-of-consciousness thought association.

I'm also testing out a bunch of different mic setups, recording templates and mixing chains, which I'll be noting down on each song, as people often ask.

Let's see what happens.


Anecdata is for rock-inspired stuff. There were two albums in 2017 - 'But Her Emails...' and 'You Do Not Do', and one in 2018 - 'Short Sharp Shocks'.

Dharma Police is retro-inspired synthpop, with lyrical themes often heavily leaning on the best TV show of all time, Lost... it began in FAWM 2011 when I wrote a bunch of Lost-inspired tunes, and there you go.

Planet Claire is instrumental electronic noodlings and other bits and bobs. Minus my voice.

    My jaw's on the ground right now... I'm a huge fan of Gary Numan, DEVO, and Thomas Dolby... and more along those lines... just listened to a bunch of your FAWM songs and am blown away by your writing, arranging and production (and vocals!) all KILLER, sooooo good. I love your lyrics and vocal tracking as well. Plus your synth sounds are fantastic. Wow - great work!! Really good stuff.

    Nope, just an EZDrummer kit on 'Blue Lizards', although probably with some tape saturation or something.

  • @pabrizzer Feb 10

    ha ha
    you said "PS love the typo in the second verse - bling justice! That's what the US has now, not blind justice"
    fixed now - I guess it has always had the bling - the wigs the capes the theatre
    thanks for reading

  • @robynmackenzie  Feb 10

    Thanks for your lovely comments! Pictures of Matchstick Men is one of my favorite 60's tunes, so that is high praise indeed!

    Dear Mr. Moscow

    Thank you for your comment on our national anthem. It is awesome to find other superpowers in FAWM!

    You mentioned our national anthem could work with a trained vocalist.. You were right. The tenor who sang the song was arrested last night and after interrogating, the military police liquidated him at dawn. His remains were fed to dogs.

    Since you helped our great nation, please accept the highest ranking civilian medal a non-UONFS person can achieve. Wear it with pride.

    Thank you,

    Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    Being honest I'd struggle to fit a photograph of one in!! Will need to go back and listen to your other stuff when I'm not falling asleep....

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 6

    Hey! Nick the chords from wherever you can to make a good song.
    There are really only so many chords and progressions. But you give it your own spin and voila! a new song is born.

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 3

    Thanks for the lovely comment on When the Night Falls! Will give your tracks a listen after work.

  • @cherok40  Feb 2

    Yes, I have the emulation of Bucla as well and I love to experiment with it, but you are right - it is difficult to actually incorporate into a track.

  • @balancelost  Feb 2

    I really want superior drummer, but I can't really afford it. I notice you don't collab much but if want a shred-off hit me up (I say shred, my playing is economical at best)

  • @ampersandman  Feb 2

    I have to admit I don't know The Replacements, but now I have to take a listen. Thanks for your comment, keep up the good work!

  • @odilongreen  Jan 31

    Hello! I’m looking forward to lots of music from you this FAWM, experimental or otherwise. Have a great (and productive) February!

  • @oddaustin Jan 24

    I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.
