Tonefloat Label Night 28th October 2012

Well. I did it!!! And I enjoyed it, the band enjoyed it and I hope the audienc enjoyed it. It was a wet and chilly Sunday night in London so I am grateful to all those who came to listen. The lovely Sand Snowman and his band were also playing along with the dutch bands 'The Use of Ashes' and 'Sleep of Reason' who were all very excellent

There is a review of the gig here

And there will be songs from Talking With Strangers and some from the new album, tentatively called 'Flow and Change'

It would be lovely to see you there... :-)


Talking With Strangers News

Am delighted to say that there will be a new release of Talking With Strangers on vinyl by Tonefloat. This time with Jackie Morris Artwork, which will look wonderful as a 12" cover. Hopefully that will be up for sale soon on the Tonefloat website

And I am more than delighted that Gonzo Multimedia will be releasing Talking With Strangers in the USA, as a proper release and not as an import. So hopefully many more people will be able to hear the music that I am so proud of. Hooray!

I am trying to cobble together an autobiography. It is taking ages because I keep finding other things to do like walking the dog or making a cup of coffee or indeed eating a biscuit. I am nagging myself quite severely to get on with it. Which I will..


R.I.P.Lol Coxhill 19 Sept 1932 -9th July 2012

Am really sad to hear of the death of Lol Coxhill with whom I worked or indeed played during the 70s' along with Steve and Phil Miller..

He was a lovely unique person and through playing with him discovered the joys of freeform improvisation. Not that I could do it, but I learned to love listening to it.

I am  proud to have  been a small part of his history.. 

 

RIP Lol
