I have compiled some tracks I made while working in the attic of my parents’ house in London, between 1984-1987. There’s quite a bit of guitar, melancholy and some noisy drum machine workouts too. Star of the show has to be the Boss DE-200 digital delay that I used on most of my recordings from 1984-2000+ – see if you can spot where it’s been used.
This wonderful print version of Electronic Sound is now available here and includes an interview with me and many luminaries of the electronic music world about the early days of this type of music in the UK and the new Cherry Red Records 4-CD compilation ‘Close to the Noise Floor’. It’s beautifully produced and has a huge number of features about gear and people involved in all areas of electronics in music.

A new release recorded with Andrea Bellucci of ‘Red Sector A’ is now available from Space Race Records This dark stripped-out techno album was recorded between 2014 and 2015 and arranged and mixed at Andrea’s studio by him in 2015. I must point out that while I am credited with additional programming on the CD sleeve, Andrea did most of the work. I provided some atmospheres and samples but the concept and overall sound of the whole set of recordings is Andrea’s and he should be commended for a fine job!
**UPDATE** Copies can now also be purchased direct from me via Discogs
