    Thank you for commenting on my song Pea Soup Skies!

    Thanks for the message, man. You're too kind.
    I didn't enjoy FAWM too much and whether I do it again I can't say.
    I don't need FAWM motivation to write and record, and the whole gushy sentimental FAWMily vibe made me cringe.
    I don't make the right music for a singer/songwriter place like this. I liked 50/90 better, I only did 14 songs but it was a nicer experience, you had time to get to know people and people were open to more experimental genres.
    You've got a punk covers band haven't you? You should start introducing some of your songs, they would fit in seamlessly, and soon the punters would be clamouring for 'em.
    See you around. All the best.

    Thanks to everyone who chipped in at any point this year. The help is very much appreciated. I didn't think I had a particularly good month...but I'm pretty happy to have stumbled over the line albeit with a couple of crocks and cop-outs along the way. Cheers, everyone!

    I wanted to return the thanks regarding encouragement. I've truly enjoyed listening to your music as well and plan on listening to the rest in the very near future. I just got around to your can definitely hear the Costello influence. The first of your songs that I heard, I was thinking that you reminded me a bit of ole Elvis, yet still with your own unique sound. I've not listened to as much of the Clash and the Jam as I have Costello so I wouldn't pick up on those influences as quickly. Thanks again my friend.

    It's usually artists that I wouldn't particularly want to listen to. How does that work ????

  • @martinswede Feb 2018

    Thanks! I wanted it to sound like a skate punk ballad, but failed.

    This is a hoot

  • @martinswede Feb 2018

    Thank you! I borrowed major chords to make it more uplifting.

    Thanks! It was cheap to buy, but is a great kit (huge drums) from the late 70s...

  • @martinswede Feb 2018

    Thanks! It was surprisingly easy to write.
