Invasion of The Body Snatchers (Music Distributor Version)


I actually started to write this post on the 8th of May... But held off as I was 'tamping' (as we say in Wales). Simple translation - I was fucking well pissed off. 


Well, up until recently, I had only ever 'heard' about streaming takedowns, fraudulent metric activity, etc, etc.

This sort of shite could never happen to me - I've got too far with my music on EVERY project/band I'm involved with...

Or so I thought...

Long story short - my main distributor turned out to be a complete pussy who burns the whole house down whenever they find a spider. 

A gutless twat. 

I should really name and shame - but I have been with this distributor from the very start of my online musical journey. They are not the only distributor I use - But I do consider them my main one.

This is set to fucking change - believe me!

I was scratching my head on this subject for weeks - it hadn't affected one of my more successful projects - but it had affected music I had written, appeared on, and produced.

This was enough to put me into 'kill mode'.

I was wondering how to approach this subject on this blog when I stumbled upon an interesting tweet from one of my followers on Twitter (I still refuse to call it 'X'). 

He's an excellent producer, and a great social content creator in the 'audio world'. 

I thought I'd leave it here and see what you think...

It's About Time I Opened My Big Fat Mouth

We've been using this site pretty much as a 'place-holder' for the last few years - somewhere to park our domain name... and not much more. I was toying with the idea of letting this domain name go, as we've never really done any sort of 'music business' through a website - we're not that kinda outfit. But, last week, I checked out a few websites belonging to musicians/bands/outfits that I respect, just to see what they use their 'internet property' for... and it turned out to be pretty interesting.  You see - I was under the impression that 'blogging', or any other form of rambling online... was pretty much dead in the water. Turns out I was wrong.  A lot of musicians and artists I look up to are using their sites as a platform to scream into the void... and I kinda like that.  Sure you can post to social media all day long, and converse with your followers, but you've got to put up with a lot of fucking twats on most (if not all) social

Can You Show Me... Where To Land?

With Lifelike Figures - Our recent album release, I took on a new way of composing and producing each song included in the project.  I used to have a set way of doing this sort of thing - very linear, and I wouldn't often stray from this path of creativity.  Lifelike Figures was a complete whirlwind. Something I just let evolve by itself, song by song, idea by idea (good or bad). The first acoustic number I wrote for the album just landed in my lap - I wrote the music and the lyrics within about 30 minutes. There was no need to change any of the progressions, or any of the literature for the verses. It was a song that found me - I didn't find it.  It's called Land Below is the first image we've published in relation to the song, and I created this post today as I feel this image is my favorite piece of art linked to my music so far. Its innocence and 'Banksy' type of feel is perfect for the song it showcases... I've also put together a 9:16 video advert usi
