Brexit roasting on a tyre fire...
...Rees-Mogg nibbling at your woes...

As of this morning (currently: Brexit vote cancelled, no Tory leadership confidence vote yet to happen, Labour picking their moment to launch a confidence vote in the Government) I think we can probably upgrade the status of UK politics to “burning pile of faeces”.

Studio clearout

I’ve been hoarding gear for twenty years and have completely run out of space. For the next few months I’m going to be chucking some odds and sods on eBay. The occasional guitar, some synths, a shed load of FX pedals and a couple of slices of Looptron history...

Marvel and Netflix have rammed the billy club of cancellation through Daredevil’s skull. This is no bad thing.

Acton Stations

Made a little timelapse film using my iPhone and the top deck of a surprisingly empty 207 bus from Shepherd's Bush to Acton. I'm teaching myself Final Cut Pro using my typical "learn by doing” method. As such, I have discovered my default approach to editing video is the same as playing the guitar. USE ALL THE PLUGINS.

Twenty years ago today.

It had been fifteen years seen the hero beat up his father so badly the old man died from his wounds. Fifteen years since we watched a group of terrorists enlist the help of the Care Bears to slaughter thousands of unwitting civil servants and proceed to overthrow the closest thing to a strong and stable government the galaxy had seen in millenia.

Radium Age Blues

I have scaled back my web presence a bit to just here and FSOD. I was becoming somewhat de-focused and this was in turn causing me to purchase nostalgia t-shirts.

Got a new tune in the pipeline. Mondo guitar noises. Radium Age Blues. Watching the government collapse is proving lightly distracting though.

Hello, My Name Is Looptron (Rig Mk2 Test)

It turns out that the downside of having a band that exists largely as software is that there is no easy upgrade path.

Looptron is a sort of electronic music type thing that happens sometimes.
