  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    2 disc CD-R containing both albums and EPs. New downloads will be available every week, CD-R orders will receive all the music on 2 discs.

    The first CD ‘reality Quake’ (2000) was well received and got much radio play as did the second, ‘Dimension of Miracles’ (2002). Start anywhere you like. Side one of ‘Reality Quake’ is intended as a suite followed by a reinvention of some of Schumann’s music. ‘Childhood’s End’ is based on Arthur C Clarke’s story, ‘Urbmon 116’ on Robert Silverberg’s ‘The World Inside’ while ‘Crompton’s Divide’ (also a mini suite) is based on Bob Sheckley’s book. ‘The End Of All Things’ is old fashioned organ riff rock while the rest is largely progressive synth scattered with wild guitar, organ and piano breaks and hook-lines, as is all the music.

    ‘Dimension of Miracles’ awaits with more sci-fi references, mostly Bob Sheckley. There is a guitar based riffer with a salutary message, ‘Big Brother’ and a ‘tragic realm’ of Elizabethan
    proportions inspired by Giles Milton’s depiction of adventurers of the time. Or you might prefer an eerie evocation of ‘Quatermass’ or another Schumann interpretative piece ‘Out of The Void’. The past is presented with additional organ, piano, vocals and judicious edits.

    On CD 2 you can take an escalator to Mars or gaze at a Martian mountain or even visit ‘Lindisfarne’ inspired by a sunny day there, a piece of which I am particularly proud. Among the crazy organ, synth and piano solos and extemporisations there are- acoustic guitars! You can feel the electronic pulse of ‘An Orison of Somni’ (based on part of ‘Cloud Atlas’) or hear an extended version of the synth mayhem that is ‘Son of Little Green Men’ with additional organ. ‘Angel Song in Neon’ has additional Wurlitzer and coruscating organ and guitar. You can listen to the group stuff on ‘Dimensions’ and ‘Regeneration’ and an improvised ‘Black Hole’. Drop in on alien conversations or hear a heart wrenching piano ballad (‘Invisible’). Hear synths that are analog or think they are, remembering that despite the somewhat uncompromising nature of
    some of the music, there is always melody and structure and dark- and light.
