This page is dedicated to other musical projects that I've been involved with, somewhere to put music I've worked on with other musicians really. Many people have shown an interest in some of this music so I thought it should be available for everyone to hear.

Chapter 9 - Tonight Matthew We're Going To Be:

Chapter 9 - Tonight Matthew We're Going To Be: CD coverThis covers album project was put together by Kev Butler, along with a number of other talented musician friends working on each track with him. Most of the 14 tracks were recorded in 2008 and cover a range of different musical styles.
I worked on 2 tracks on this album and also mastered the CD.
The first track is Faith Healer by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band; this is a cover of the version from their 1975 'Live' album. Kev played lead and bass guitar, Dave Sharpe provided vocals and I did the drums, keyboards, programming & mixing.
The second track is When Things Explode by Unkle from their War Stories album. Kev played guitars, Paul Hine was on vocals and I added the synths, beats, programming & mixing.

You can download the 2 tracks below. All MP3's are unrestricted MP3 format (192Kbps).

Tzars Of Fashion - Freeze Frame

Tzars Of Fashion - Freeze Frame CD coverThis CD project was a collaboration between myself and Kev Butler. The idea was for me to handle the techno side of things and Kev to provide the initial song ideas and live input, such as vocals, live guitars and bass. It worked very well considering the equipment I had at the time. This was before I had a computer for audio recording and most of the live tracks were recorded onto a Akai S3200 sampler. I learnt a hell of a lot whilst working on this project, especially about digital audio and how it can be manipulated.
All the tracks were written & recorded between 1996-97 at Sound Cell Studios. Other musicians that appeared on the CD were vocalist Tony Dolan (tracks 3 and 7) and Paul Robinson adding additional keyboard input.
I suppose if I were pushed into describing the type of music on this CD it would be something along the lines of indie/industrial/techno crossover, although some may disagree, I never know where the boundaries of some musical genres start and end. I don’t like trying to put music into 'boxes', it's pointless, you either like something or you don't...
