There’s something you ought to know about me. I’m a musician by trade. Doesn’t it make your heart sing? No, wait… whatchacallit… sink! Anyway, I did the guitars and the voice, and wrote the songs. The drums are by Stephen Gilchrist (Stuffy/the Fuses) and the bass is by Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland). One of the tracks also has Pete Wareham (Acoustic Ladyland and Polar Bear) playing his amazing saxophone.

I don’t expect everyone to like what I do, but on the offchance that you do, please know that I have self-released a single; self-released because no one else expects everyone to like what I do either! But if you like Cardiacs, Deerhoof, Charlottefield and that sort of thing, you might like to give it a listen. There’s also a very lovely review on Heavy Soil if you still can’t make your mind up.

Since the lyrics are vaguely related to film, I also present a free download. Ally Craig – Pilot Inspektor (MP3). It’s about… well, I’ll let you work it out for yourself. There’s also more stuff on MySpace. OK, I’ll get back to writing about flickering things now.
