Send Me An Angel became a major hit for Real Life in the 80s topping the charts in number of countries. As an icebreaker it was a great international beginning for the band. Covered by a variety of performers and DJ’s from rock, metal, pop, dance to Gregorian it’s a synth standard. Anyhow, none of […]

In 1982/3 I wrote the song SHE’S EPHEMERAL, reflecting the sparse, floating and emotive synth architecture I was hearing at the time from contemporaries. I no longer have my 4 track analogue tapes from that period but I did recreate the song in 2015 for the Alien Skin album, A Blue Sky at the Edge […]

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, […]

Like many of you here I’m a Depeche Mode fan, in particular of the albums released in the 1980s with Alan Wilder. Cutting edge swaths of electronic atmosphere and captivating, memorable writing by Martin Gore. On Christmas Eve, 2011, I found myself in a Melbourne studio with engineer Jack the Bear mastering my album ‘Ghost […]

Part 2 of 2 posts In Part 1 of this blog my first crush on a lass named Joanna turned into my first song at the age of 10. And I purposely starved at school pocketing my lunch money to buy an LP every 17 days. Inch by inch I wormed my way into the […]
