Bandcamp VAT Update (Normal Service Resumed)

Looks like I will NOT be disabling my digital downloads on Bandcamp on 1st Jan 2015. The latest from BC is that they will be dealing with the VAT with regards to downloads. Which is very good news for all the musicians and small independent labels out there. So I looks like when I do get round to finishing the new album it will be on Bandcamp as CD and Download.
On that note......Happy New Year to you all, see you on the other side.
Goodbye for now.

Bandcamp Downloads Now Disabled (Temporarily)

Sadly from Jan 1st 2015 my digital music will no longer be available to download and purchase from Bandcamp. Due to new EU law anyone selling music downloads online has to now pay VAT. I have spent many a sad and dull hour today reading all the FAQs and HMRC docs regarding this and like quite a few others have decided not sell my music as digital downloads on Bandcamp for the time being (might change if it all gets sorted out)
On the plus side all my albums/music will still be on Bandcamp to listen to (stream) and I should add that CD copies of my albums will still be available from Bandcamp (seems the tax issue is all sorted there)

Alien Jams Nov 30th

A month or so ago Chloe Frieda who hosts and runs The Alien Jams show on NTS Radio & also the Alien Jams Record Label, invited me back onto the show. I was last on the show way back in February 2014 and had a fantastic time. So I was very much looking forward to it again. This time round I played tunes by The Soulless Party, Simon Heartfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Thomas Leer, The Listening Center and Space Art. I had a fantastic time, and after a very swift post show drink I bid my farewells to Chloe and headed of to find the tube station. Top tip for the day, always check to see if there is any engineering work taking place on the underground.

Its the new one from The Advisory Circle

Very happy chap because the new The Advisory Circle album From out Here dropped through the door. And what a fine album it is to. Some very interesting and creepy stuff here,
Mr Foyster (is full of menace) From out of Here (a tad errie) Triadex Two Five Nine (they are coming to get you) Jessica finds the Beach (Mournful and lovely).
A big old thumbs up for Mr Brooks, and no doubt this will (like as The Crow Flies did) live in my car for a few months for those long and dark winter journeys (I have one coming up in fact, just me and From Out of Here)
