about

Released as a cassette on End of the Alphabet Records 'There Are Other Possibilities' is a selection of tracks recorded whilst practising for a live show, each piece was improvised - including the lyrics (hence their vagueness..) and there was no over-dubbing. Layers were built up using 2 loop pedals.
When Noel Meek asked me if I would release something on his new label I went back to this folder to see if there was anything worthwhile amongst these recordings. To be honest I was very surprised by how much there actually was- I hadn't listened to any of the files since recording them.
I did some judicious editing- typically knocking off the long slow build ups to most of the tracks as I sorted out choice loops etc.
The end result is a pretty good representation of where I am at with these particular favourite instruments at the moment. The fact that I've been listening to a lot of pop music over the last year is kind of evident as well- and I don't think thats a bad thing. There are synth based pop songs here, big guitar freak outs, cut up beat driven noisy almost-dance music and huge cosmic drones.
Overall I find myself surprised by how easily this record happened.. For such a painless endeavour I am thrilled that it has come off so well. I actually suspect it may be one of the best records that I have made.. But who am I to say?
