Send me your pix!

May 1, 2017

I thought it would be fun to see photo’s of you all, holding your favourite Lagowski, S.E.T.I. or Legion releases. If you like, please send them to lagowski@gmail.com and I’ll put them on a new page here. It would be great to finally ‘meet’ all of you who have been so generously supporting my music!

Lagowski – ‘Daemons of the Western World’

September 24, 2016

I have put some new Lagowski tracks and remixes up on Bandcamp. All proceeds from the sale of this music will go towards the treatment of Ania Mehring, the wife of Maciej Mehring, founder of the Zoharum label. She has been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Electronic Sound – The Electronic Music Magazine Issue 2.0

May 17, 2016

MorphysoundThis 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.

I was invited to release a S.E.T.I. album on a nice looking label a few months ago, so have spent many evenings creating tracks and am pleased to say the album was finished a few weeks ago and has already had the stamp of approval from ‘the label’. They release very limited runs of glass mastered CD’s – I will of course announce further details in due course. When it will be released is another matter, but I am very happy with the direction this album has taken and fans of S.E.T.I. will notice a big difference between this and ‘Final Trajectory’. Some of the sounds were played at my recent gig in Berlin and more will be previewed in Poland at the Gorlice Ambient Festival in July.

This doesn’t mean my relationship with Loki has ended and of course I hope they will be happy to release my material in future, but as I was invited and like the look of ‘the label’, I thought it might be fun.

For the Gorlice festival, I have been extending my video backing, as my set will be at least an hour long 🙂

In other news, there are plans afoot for a bunch of Nagamatzu CD releases on a Polish label, which may be familiar to some of you from a few of my recent releases 🙂 Stephen Jarvis has been hard at work sourcing graphics and we are at the stage of cataloguing tracks for the albums, which will include some never before heard demo tracks and possibly live noises too.

Finally, I have been working with Andrea Bellucci (‘Red Sector A’, not the voluptuous actress!) on some very hypnotic techno-type material and we hope to find a label for it towards the end of the year.

Don’t forget Nagamatzu vinyl and other releases of mine can be found at my Discogs Seller page

Fly my children – the monster must be destroy-Ed!

November 2, 2013

I’ve never had a manager for my musical output and am not the kind of person who can schmooze his way to success. I don’t believe in kissing the backside of those who I think might help to increase my exposure in the electronic music/sound world. I find it hard to look at my musical output from the outside in – to me it seems sporadic and patchy with a few tunes here and there that I still enjoy. I’m always analysing my own tracks and wishing I could have done this or that better but ultimately, once a track is done and ‘out’, it’s like saying goodbye to an offspring and time to make another one.

So this week, in an attempt to increase my circle of listeners, and to introduce people to my music (which I’ve been making for 30+ years) I’ve paid FB to bring traffic to this page. Only a very small amount but without a manager, there is not much I can do to push it out there and spread the virus.

In the long distant past, I would have sent cassettes out to fanzines and later, cd’s to magazines and websites. I even met people and gave them cd’s in person! I soon realised that giving people your music free, in the hope that they’d review it or talk to others about it, was a very naive thing to do.

I don’t really know what I’m trying to say apart from, this is the way I’ve always done it and I don’t think it’s ever going to change. So paying FB to promote me is perhaps the equivalent of sending out that cassette 30 years ago and I don’t really expect it to go anywhere or reach anyone but you can’t hang on to your children forever and maybe this will push them further afield into areas that they’ve never been.
