As you might have noticed the Song of the Day has become my place holder on days where I’ve no real writing to put up, which is most of them at the moment as I’m basically stuck between semi-finished projects (like a radio play) which need to go in their own direction and new ideas which are still finding their feet (like whichever novel I write next). More writing is coming though, just drip fed and in the meantime, have a song…
My latest work, No Cure for Shell Shock, is a collection of short stories and poetry. It’s available as an eBook and a paperback here.
As always reviews, support and shares are welcome.
Just a little something I made years and years ago. Recently disappeared from the internet as the site it was on culled their archives, so here it is again on Band Camp. It was a labour of love, although possibly not much talent but I’m still happy to have it out there. And it’s free to stream/download so feel free to have a listen. Electronic noodlings.
Every now and then a song comes up on shuffle to remind me that, once upon a time, I tried my hand at making some music. An entirely amateur attempt it basically boiled down to being obsessed with fiddling on a computer for a month or so. Although in a surprising blur of productivity it did yield up some things which, for nostalgia’s sake, I’m posting today…
Over the years I’ve run a fair few sites, mostly about free and Creative Commons licensed music but I’ve never been too fussy about straying from the theme. At various points a fair bit of work has gone into finding and reviewing good, independently released music from some very talented people. And while my focus these days is pretty much exclusively on my own work I thought it would be a good idea to keep those archives up here for posterity, especially as quite a lot of the music covered disappeared with far less attention than it deserved.
As a lot of this stuff has been transfered across more than one site there’s every chance that links will be broken, information outdated and images lost. One day I’ll try to fix all of that but today certainly isn’t that day. If you’re an artist or happen to know any updated info though don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll fix what I can. And the same goes for new releases from people or labels I’ve previously covered, I may not review any more but I’m always happy to share good new stuff where I can.
You can explore the backlog under the Archive tab on the main menu.
