Critics of modern RnB...

Critics of modern RnB and to a certain extent Pop know this: it is the artform that most perfectly expresses now. You don't like now. Fair enough. Get out there and change now. You will find that art will change to reflect the new now.

Within the context of now it is beautiful, moving and interesting to listen to. But like now it is also shallow, tecnologically focused and searching for something more.

The Sounds of the Clouds

Hello my friends,


The Reactionaries album is now AVAILABLE! Yes, over a year after it was finished, and after being mistreated by some people who mess musicians about, we havedecided to go completely virtual and completely FREE!

So you can stream and download the album from our SoundCloud page. You can see and download the album artworks and lyrics on our Flickr page.

Other Reactionary places are myspace and facebook

The Plural's Feb 20th track is now availble for your listening consideration. We are writing/recording/mixing and releasing 12 songs over 12 days over 12 months. By December we'll have an album of material.

Listen to our first 2 tracks (and all future tracks) on our SoundCloud page.

Like our facebook page to keep informed of when our tunes come out.

The Middle Class Bastards are also avilable on SoundCloud for free streaming and download. As me and Alex prepare to go in a different musical direction, under a different name, we thought it was time we tidied up the house we are leaving, so that if we ever come back it will be a neat and tidy place to return to.

Four Days in a Room a new podcast series, has it's 7th episode coming out on Monday

"Discussing profound things in a silly way."

"A podcast experiment."

"An audio journey."

"A strange muffled voicemail message that you can't stop listening to!"

Subscribe to it via iTunes. / Or follow it's RSS feed. / Like it's facebook page. / Listen to it on MixCloud

We're blogging the episodes and the reactions to the episodes here:

Please spread the word and subscribe, we've had a lot of great and interesting feedback to what's gone out so far. The show will take you (and took us) to all sorts of places. Please travel with us. Engage with us. And judge us.

Speaking of listening journeys, has recently had a few fantastic make overs and is set for some even more exciting developments in the future. If you like audio that's the place to listen. Here's a good blog what they wrote telling you why: (Check out my audio selections here.)

Got lots of other exciting projects going on but they will wait for later in the year. As ever if you want to be removed from this list let me know.
