RIP Chas Hodges 1943 – 2018

A bit late on this but RIP to Chas Hodges of Chas and Dave. Much derided but they did put out some genuine classes. And Snooker Loopy, which in my humble opinion is actually pretty good. Anyway, hope there’s a beer on the sideboard in the beyond…

Many Elephants : Human Errors

Just quick musical heads-up for Human Errors by Many Elephants. It’s a bit of an odd one in that it’s not exactly an album, more an OST for an imagined TV show. The tracks are short and unpronounced with nothing you’d point to and say ‘this is the one to listen to’ but together they create a nicely ambient whole. A little trip into a near future dystopia is where I’d place it, but that may just be down to where my head is at.

Good to stick on in the background on a dark night or, I reckon, a long journey looking out at the rain. Anyway, worth a listen.

You can find Many Elephants here and on Twitter.

David Zé – Undenge Uami

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.

YouSir – Hostile Takeover EP

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.
