The Hoverfly Hotel
The Hoverfly HotelPossibly the first song ever to feature Syrphidae. Words and music by Andy Pay. Thanks to Helen Pay for additional vocals and Jonny Lipsham of Presonus for mixing/mastering tutorials.
Slow AirJust testing the new mic, I'll record a full version of this tune some time, without the cock-ups :-)
RosettaMy homage to the first space-craft to land on a comet. When you give something a name it can come to acquire a personality. The team in mission control were in tears when, 12 years after launch, Rosetta was abandoned, left to travel through space for eternity. Words, music, vocals and guitars by me. An unsophisticated warts-and-all recording on basic, amateur equipment also by me but kindly rendered more listenable by Jonny Lipsham Studios of Edinburgh.
Christmas In Australia
Christmas In AustraliaOriginally penned by Clive Harvey and performed by the legendary Roaring Jelly, this is my updated version. With grateful thanks to Helen Pay for additional vocals and Jonny Lipsham of Jonny Lipsham Studios for bass and drums and mixing and mastering.
