In the slow lane

The last post went up some time in the middle of October 2011. What can I say, somewhere between hell and high water the days just disappeared amid chaotic work commitments and bedding down new projects and winding up loose ends lying around. Time to clean up more tracks and continue the hunt for the […]

Bears

Written somewhere between ’79 and ’81. This was one of my first songs written for the ARC.

Here’s an unearthed gem from Craig. This was one of my favourites from the latter days of the band. I believe this is a rehersal take, (working out guitar bits and getting the drive right). Recorded on the fly, ’84 at lower Rankin St. Hope you enjoy. Also added to; Splinters | A Book for […]

No hiding place for a good comment.

To good to be left hiding on the ‘About’ page so I’m throwing this comment of Gordon’s up front. As Gordon says we’ve spent some time going through the 100+ tapes we have between us and found a goldmine of un-recorded, un-finished, un-plugged songs, many that I had forgotten, and that’s bad, because I wrote […]
