Been a long while updating this blog. So here goes.... Splices and Phases CD digipak still available to buy from Bandcamp (£5.00 includes postage and packing). 

They all feature treated and looped layers of distorted, folksy guitar, swelling, revolving, echoing and sliding in and out of ominous washes of static or invaded by radio signals from space as if to describe some kind of technological crisis. Meanwhile extended organ chords and percussive episodes are employed to keep the puzzling plot unfolding. It is a rather unique, loose, expressionistic collage style yet manages to keenly infer a peculiarly English style of strange fiction - The Quietus

Soiled remains experimental-like, but the sound is accessible for all lovers of minimal electronic experiences - Sideline mag

Working on new tracks for collaboration with Poet Chris Stewart. The tracks go towards my contribution to The Black Path art event at the House of Blah Blah in Middlesbrough 28th Jan 2016. The tracks will form the backdrop for a special art installation. Live performance with Phil Davis as the Warped Freqs should happen but we are still practicing...well meant to be. 

The tracks will also feature as a physical release. This is still in the planning stages but I am collaborating not only with Chris Stewart but other spoken word artists to put words to my tracks. If you are reading this and you are a spoken word artist and want to contribute contact me.

Splices and Phases latest notices and news

The download of the album came out in October. One could say a staggered release. From download to physical in 39 steps. The download reviewers copy has managed to Prick up the ears. A Closer Listen & Noise Polluter gave time to review the album.

Mojo magazine placed Soiled track Autumn in Flashbacks No 17 in the Mojo playlist. Right above The Cure (Smudgy Bob).

Michael Wertz, who is a gear illustrator from a California, runs a show on 9th Radio, "The Argyll Adventure Tree". A number of Soiled tracks graced this cult radio show. Especially proud as Michael illustrates for Camper Van Beethoven. On my conventional music (that's my music spectrum) of my favourite bands.

So now the physical copies are just about ready. ALREADY some Orders have been placed for the Cd Digipak, limited to 50, individually numbered. A cassette version will be available later in the year. Promo cds will be sent out soon.

Happy 2015
