Mark's so-called music 'blog'.

Tomorrow I will be 28. Actually, by the time you read this I will have been 28 for some time, or possibly even older. Nevertheless, at the time of writing I will be 28 tomorrow, and in my 28 years I have written several drawer-fulls of music. In the next 28 years I expect to write several drawer-fulls more, and I was thinking that rather than leaving it to gather dust I would use the internet as an outlet for my musical work. Hopefully, having this page will also encourage me to write more new material as well, but we shall see about that...

Some of the tunes will be very old. Some will be brand-spanking new never-been-heard-before. Some will be full finished mixes, others just drafts or ideas. Some will be solo work, some will be collaborative. Some might even be by other people. To help you put things in context I will also write a short paragraph about each piece as it is released.

24/04/2008 - Still High With What She's Done [Download]
Image for 'Still High With What She's Done'

This track came out of an experiment that involved myself, a certain Mr. Steve Haines and one or two boozes. The resulting nonsense was given to Steve's erstwhile companion (and now good lady wife), Kate, who managed to take the disjointed craziness and add a lyric that somehow tied it all together.

Several more sessions were needed to make it actually work (during one of which we 'accidentally' wrote another song whilst playing around with an old Casio keyboard) but eventually it was mixed to our satisfaction, and so, almost a year-and-a-half later, here it finally is!

The lyrics were inspired by the novel Hotel World by Ali Smith. As I didn't write them, I won't comment any further, but I will say that the book itself is well worth a read!
