I've been playing music, on and off (more
off than on, frankly), since 1982, when I bought my first cheap,
crappy bass guitar. Which I still own...
In that time, I've played in two bands:-
- 4 FLAGS - a four piece guitar-based
pop group which never really amounted to much, even
though we did support Rob Strong (who?) on a number of
- ANY CROWDED CEILING - which started
off as a four piece guitar-based pop group, then evolved
into a two piece electronic, studio-based operation, then
evolved further to a one-piece, electronic, studio-based
entity, which is what it was when I stopped being ANY
CROWDED CEILING and started being me again...
Here's a picture
of Andrew Butterfield and myself (a.k.a. ANY CROWDED CEILING)
taken in Trinity College, Dublin in 1986
I have done a number of recordings which
are available for your perusal, if the price is right:-
- RUBBER SOLE E.P. - recorded when I
was ANY CROWDED CEILING. Features four songs, one of
which prompted 2FM D.J. and doyen of the alternative,
Dave Fanning, to utter "So that's what a Designer
Hangover sounds like?". As if he was impressed...
Cost to you, $6 including postage and packaging.
- GOOD RIDDANCE - a demo album, if you
know what I mean. Never formally released as I could
never get any record company interested in it. I've had
good reviews of it, however, from anyone who's given it a
listen. Recorded and duplicated at home, so the sound
quality is a leetle bit dodgy, but shursophwat? Yours for
$5 including postage and packaging.
- BREATHING SPACE - a demo
instrumental album, meant to act as a stopgap between
GOOD RIDDANCE and a putative third album which has never
materialised. Same caveats re. sound quality. Yours for a
mere $5 including postage and packaging.
- As a special offer, GOOD RIDDANCE
and BREATHING SPACE are available as a single C90
cassette for the princely sum of $9 including postage and
- Or if you're a real glutton for
punishment, why not go for the full monty? RUBBER SOLE
and GOOD RIDDANCE/BREATHING SPACE for $14 including
postage and packaging.
"And how do I avail of this
wonderful offer?", you ask archly.
'Tis but a piece of widdly
stuff; just click here and we'll
negotiate terms, awright?
