For close to 50 years, I have been actively involved in composing and performing music. On this page, I will be sharing information on those projects which are currently available on a public basis.
A collaboration with my old friend Kelvin Saunders under the banner Quelque Chose. These ten instrumental tracks were composed, arranged, performed and engineered out of thin air. Each track was inspired by a simple chord sequence, riff or loop and then developed on the fly. In each case, what we ended up with bore no relation to what we expected.
Here’s a video for the track Cloud Surfing
I’ll make available more of my stuff from the last 15 years soon. Meanwhile, here’s one from when I was a teenager, playing bass in a band called Five Day Rain:
Five Day Rain 1970
This album was recorded at IBC Studios in Portland Place, London in 1970, with production by Brian Carroll and the legendary engineer Damon Lyon-Shaw. Despite interest from Polydor, it was not formally released at the time, although it became widely available on a pirated basis as a rare psychedelic classic. Seven songs from the album are included on the compilation The Best of Homegrown Music 1968-1980 which can be found on Spotify and iTunes.
