I began releasing albums as Alien Skin in 2008, this was a couple of years after Real Life, as a band, called it a day. Returning home after our US tour, I began writing songs for an album which was to become my first, outside the band. Released in early 2008, DON’T OPEN TILL DOOMSDAY […]

In 2019 I released one of my most successful Alien Skin albums, P.O.P. POP, and the first for quite a while on a record label, ScentAir Records, Moscow. It somewhat took me by surprise as it was a slight departure from what I had been producing till then, still very blue, grey and melancholic in […]

A jumbled mix of lyrical imagery, mentally streamed at fast speed then broken down and re constituted gives certain results, sometimes they work. This is THE WICKER MAN a song written quite awhile ago while I was in a Depeche ‘The Sun and the Rainfall’ bleak afternoon kind of mood. Dense woodland outside my window, […]
