I have privately released two albums, "The Last Druids" (2002) and "The Eye of the Cyclone" (2003). These are, according to one reviewer "progressive rock heavily informed by celtic music", though there are also space-rock influences in the second album. My next album "The Store of All the Worlds" will be released in March 2004.

See album and concert reviews in the "Reviews" section.

You may see reviews of the albums at the excellent "Aural Innovations" site:

Why this name?
I didn't choose it - my parents did!
Do you play live?
The highlight of 2003 was supporting the mighty Hawkwind at the summer Hawkfest, performing with the noted Australian guitarist and founder of Alien Dream, Michael Blackman. There's a review of our performance and an interview at:

See also a highly detailed and intellectual analysis of the tonal structure of our compositions as rendered at Hawkfest, together with musings on the rendition in the context of the evolution of space rock at the highly serious and profound Hawkwindmuseum -

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's certainly easier to be heard.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course! It's difficult to get CDs in the shops otherwise
Band History:
I have been producing music privately for a number of years; "The Last Druids" and "The Eye of the Cyclone are single concept works that are designed to take the listener on a musical journey - in the first case, ancient Britain at the dawn of the Dark Age. The second album in the series, "The Eye of the Cyclone" is loosely based on the beliefs that The Last Druids may have held.

The third album, "The Store of All the Worlds", was released in June 2004 and is a tour around possible dystopias - a set of sf "short story" songs.
Your influences?
Hawkwind, space-rock and progressive music. Magma, Van Der Graaf Generator, early Genesis, Camel, Yes (especially "Relayer"), more recently Gorky's Zygotic Mynci
Favorite spot?
Anywhere where you can hear good music and have a good time.
Equipment used:
A range of synths and samplers, including analog synths from the 1970s. SONAR to sequence and Sound Forge to master.
Anything else...?
