Blood On The Fretboard (Jam)

Geoff sliced open his finger over lunch. We bandaged him up and got on with playing anyway. This particular spontaneous jam ended abruptly unfortunately and we sent him to the blood bin.

Hymn For A Pool Cleaner (Jam)

Occasionally Frankenfido gets together and just plays. Anything. For fun. The tapes are always rolling and bits of music fall out.

TuneLeaks completed!

Well, the album is now completed, the artwork nailed, and we’re just about ready to ship everything off for manufacture.

Thank you everyone who came along for the TuneLeak journey! You will receive more information about ordering “Last Chance To Hear” from my Bandcamp page, if you are so inclined. TuneLeak downloads are now finished for this album.

This was a fun experiment! Based on your feedback and my own experience, I’ll definitely do something similar for the next album, with one or two changes.

– cheers, Ben.

Last Chance To Hear Part 1

Unleashing… the opening track, appropriately titled, “Last Chance To Hear Part 1”. (Yes, there is a Part 2 and it will most likely close the album.) This is perhaps a little more over-the-top for me than usual – one part demented chat show theme and one part acerbic call to arms. Then everything goes to heck.

Revenge Of Dr Komodo

Forbidden love between prog and rockabilly! The third part of a mini-suite featuring the villainous protagonist, Dr Komodo. (But the first part appearing on TuneLeak!)

Spy In The Sky – Demos

Spy In The Sky is based, partly, on these demos I wrote and recorded in 1994 and early 1995.

I’ve put them up here for streaming (not for sale) only for curiosity’s sake.

Recording songs in many respects is not so much about songwriting, arrangement or production as much as it is about exorcism. This music has been floating around in my head for longer than it hasn’t. I can finally say I’ve given it a good home and a place to belong, and we can all move forward with our lives.
