Some time back, in the dark recesses of 2009, I started working on a track called “My Machine Is Broken”. I was determined to ‘do a Kraftwerk’. I got about halfway through the song and stopped as D-Songs took over.
Sometime after that, I made two pieces of music which I submitted for a soundtrack. They weren’t used.
In May 2011, I went on holiday to Australia. While I was there I did some programming in my spare time. Once I had returned, I had finished the programming for Weapon, Use Me, Tranquillizer, In The City At Night, We Ran, In The Rain and Weapon Of Love.
I spent the next few months singing on the Oz tracks, programming and singing on No Connection and Arrow, and adding the latter half of My Machine Is Broken.
I took the two unused soundtrack pieces and added them to the album, renaming them “Steel Gives Tully Over To The Darkness” and “Hope It’s Raining When I Get Home”.
A friend kindly contributed some sweet vocals to We Ran.
And sometime in July I finished Weapon Of Love, a delightful confection of electro pop heaven.
Then I had a fab time taking silly photos with Wendy Buckley and used them to make artwork and wallpaper for the album.
And today you can download the album, along with the artwork:

On top of all of that, I’m playing a couple of tunes (hopefully more) at Camden Bar in Ashley Cross next Monday (5th September) sometime after 7pm. It would be great to see you there:
