||So, September has been a manic month! Apart from apparently
having a piece of my music used for a condom advert (!!!) Shadow of the Wind (re-issue)
was released, and I'm told that sales are doing really well. Huge thanks to all of you
lovely folk who have forked out cash and bought it! Also released was David Wright's fab 'Beyond the Airwaves' and Iotronica's amazing debut 'Of Moons and Stars', both
of which are also doing really well. And deservedly so!
Releases aside, I took delivery
of a new synth this month - a Korg O1/WFD, courtesy of the lovely Neil 'Geigertek'
Fellowes. Neil and I have been speaking online for a few years now and have become good
friends, so it was truly wonderful to meet him in person, along with the equally lovely
Dean Burnett and Neil's rather ace son Callum, who wears what can only be described as
amazing Goth boots (which I desperately want!) Ah, what a lovely trio of men to have in my
This month also saw me having a somewhat impromptu visit from AD Music's David Wright,
who was on his way back from the 'Awakenings' gig in Burton. That visit was also really
lovely! Obviously David and I have known each other for many years and get on like a house
on fire! He very kindly lent me a load of sound expansion disks for my synths, so now I
have synthybitz to the power of, ooh, lots!
I also caught up with the rather wonderful Dave Barker
(Asana) who has been a great friend of mine for ages. We haven't seen each other for
years, so it was a real treat to get together, especially as Shadow of the Wind includes
his excellent remix of 'The Talisman'. I'm so fortunate to have such talented people in my
October looks to be an equally exciting month, with the re-issue of Elysian Fields due for completion. Pure is also well underway and on schedule for release
this year. In addition, I've been doing a few bits for games as well - to be honest I'm
quite looking forward to a bit of time off! Mind you, I'd probably only be bored. Some
people are never happy are they!
