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.

03/10/2004 - Babar The Elephant [Download]
Image for 'Babar The Elephant'This is a very early E-Bru track, which hasn't been played for many many years. It was written in a couple of hours (does it show?) when we were scrabbling to get our initial 20 minute set up to a playable 30 minutes. I think we only performed it a couple of times, but was always a favourite with the crowd, probably because of the memorable sample, but it was dropped because we couldn't be bothered to develop it properly. I doubt we'll ever do anything with it in the future as our style has moved on quite considerably since then, but I thought I'd put it up here as a reminder of where the whole E-Bru thing started from. This recording (possibly the only one existence) is from the first performance of the track, at the second E-Bru gig ever (back in 1998), and although it's a little rough around the edges it brought back a brief nostalgia for those early experimental days.
