No prizes for guessing what i'm doing during the 'Lockdown'. The people of Hull may have wondered what that UFO was buzzing around in the sky for earlier this week. It was just Astronaut tedblight filming this video for me. Thanks Ted, i'll pay you for the £25000000 worth of rocket fuel you used.
I'd been working on this one all winter. Uploaded it to Soundcloud a few weeks ago, and decided to upload it to YouTube today, despite the fact that I'm not totally happy with it. The concept is simple; imagine if our planet suddenly errored out like a computer? Maybe it hits a little too close to home, given recent events....but there you go....
Great idea and concept, I like the sounds and feel off it. A middle8 would lift the tune. It reminds me of Time era. Well done!
*the band on this track has since grown a third eyebrow
It has been an odd few months ... with the band spread although the uk, the much considered new recording has had to come to a standstill. So it has given me time to relook at some of the older material and remaster it. The result has come out well i think and here is a video of one of the tracks.
I am incredibly impressed by the options available and although completely new to all of this and I am amazed daily.
The video was produced in the US (Denver to be more accurate) by a freelancer who specialises in 'sin city' type treatments to video, which in itself I find brilliant. All communication done via email and the minimum of fuss.
Looking at the viewing stats, it has now been viewed in over 30 countries which given the volume of stuff produced is wonderful. I appreciate our numbers are tiny in comparison to signed/named acts but we are incredibly grateful for every single view/listen especially after 17 years.
The album is being re-released on friday 19/6 (or 6/19 for our US friends) with no marketing budget so I expect not many to notice it will be available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, Amazon, and many more for initial period of 12-months.
I will come with a begging note to spotify users to playlist us if they would be so kind at some point
So with the video getting toward 8000 views in the 3 weeks lead up, today is the album launch day. please can I ask you to consider listening. As you can imagine the writing and recording of this album took a large chunk of my life. such a long time ago The revisting and remastering at home this year has been a small joy amongst the bigger worry for us all. if you would be so kind to listen (and if you can like/playlist) ...we cherish every single play!
I put in on playlist why I cooked. I already knew about half the songs, but it gives them a new dimension when you hear them presented together with the others. Of course I like some song more than others, but the whole thing as a unit is very solid.
Great work, dillwyn. As far as this modest aficionado is concerned you are a great songwriter.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
