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.

Please feel free to leave comments!

My Other On-Line Music

03/06/2008 - Devill Dog [Download]
Image for 'Devill Dog'

This track was written for On The Blog, the Radio 2 sitcom by Kris Dyer & Dave Marks, and was featured in the first episode of Series 2, broadcast last Saturday.

The song is by Cagouls - a Levellers-style band - and was featured on their EP Civil Britain, a concept-EP based on the English Civil War. The song tells the story of Boye, the poodle belonging to Prince Rupert, who was believed to have super-natural powers which protected his owner from being harmed in battle. At Marston Moor, Boye was killed and (not to spoil the ending or anything...) Rupert was, for the first time, defeated.

I thought it would be funny if the band had a folk-rock cellist instead of the standard fiddle. Plus I can play the cello... even if it has been about 10 years since I last opened the case!

Also, if you listen carefully, you'll hear that I'm mentioned too. How terribly exciting for everyone.
