Tim Bowness - Songs from the Ghost Light

I am playing both upright and electric bass on several tracks on Tim Bowness's new release "Songs From the Ghost Light", a mixture of studio and live performances.
Available now on CD and vinyl it is, I am told, to be considered a companion release to the latest album "Lost in the Ghost Light", which was released earlier this year.

For a full track listing, audio sample and more info, please see Tim Bowness's website:

Live with Gaudi

I've contributed bass to some of the tracks on his forthcoming album so it makes total sense to be joining Gaudi for some dates in support of his forthcoming album "Magnetic"
set for release on Rarenoise on June 16th.
The live band will be a four piece and also include Pippo De Palma (Loungedelic) on guitar and Nikolaj Bjerre on drums.
I've been working through the material in preparation and it's a heady mix of psychedelia, dub, krautrock and atmospherics, it's sure to be a great experience for band and audience alike…..looking forward to it!

First up is the Borderline in London, please click here for ticket information.

O.R.k. - I'm Afraid of Americans

We are happy to present our tribute to one of the greats, with a song that recent events have given a new and chilling resonance.

Macho Posturing, Nepotism, Divisive Messages, Growing Authoritarianism, the Exploitation of Fear, Marginalization of Minorities, Denial of Science, Mocking of the Disabled, a Government of Billionaires, and most worrying of all, Nuclear Sabre Rattling......we're not just afraid of Americans, we are afraid for Americans....
