I really enjoy writing songs (and just writing) - I play guitar, sort of folky/bluesy...and inept quasi-jazz.

Influences

Many and varied...but would like to make something with similar instrumentation to Veedon Fleece. Fond of old tin pan alley songsters too...& Dan Hicks. Loads more (I should have thought this through).

(Cont a month later) Lots of the "much as we expected" favourites: - John Martyn, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell...and the mildly eccentric staples of balding men...PIL, Captain Beefheart, Television, Pere Ubu etc....then recently James Yorkston, Elliot Smith, Jim O'Rourke, SMOG. And have gone back to Bluegrass, Jazz and Classical of late.

A bit bemused by the sameyness of Bon Iver and Arcade Fire lately...I used to be a music critic...a bit of a stinker. Kinder now...especially in the light of recent homegrown efforts.

Members Of Band

None...occasionally get together with a couple of friends who live over a hundred miles away.

EQUIPMENT

Lots of guitars.
