Sometimes exasperation (or even temporary despair) is the appropriate response but you get up and start again, move on…
I feel it coming…
A very different vibe after the last track, a slice of seasonal melancholy:
Fresh for October:
Finally finished in September, this has been simmering a while.
I think I was quite fussy about the production and the energy levels.
Inspired by Elvira Madigan, Oscar Wilde, David Hockney and my mate Daniel!
Big earworm riff which isn’t really a riff…
First time on Soundcloud for a personal favourite.
Heda in full effect…
RIP Glen Campbell. Glen and songwriter Jimmy Webb were responsible for one of the greatest pop songs ever. I’ve joked before that it’s my favourite song about telegraph poles (which it is) but that engineer up on his pylon in the middle of nowhere trying to maintain communications is one of the most poignant symbols of the human condition in a three minute tune…and Glen’s rich voice renders it perfectly without overstating the lonesomeness. Absolute class.

A slight change of pace for this new song:
Not a ballad. Not a love song. Not about a girl.
Latest posting on Soundcloud before Winter sets in…
Approximately 50% of this song is an E7 chord! Oh, the inspiration of the greats like R. D. D. !
I always liked the Mellotron flute in this track. It must remind me of those sixties psychedelic songs that combine lightness and heaviness in unique ways. It would have been a little too gloomy without it, I think, and it weaves beautifully round the guitar.
