Two very different albums featuring yours truly on bass are both released this month.
On the left and in front, cool packaging (...by creative vandal Nick Egan) on the new album Dr Jekyll and Mrs Hyde by my friend Paul Mex.
Paul made a couple of albums in the early '80's before moving into a successful music production career, and this new album is a revisitation of sorts to his punk roots.
I worked with Paul many years ago on an obscure poetry and music crossover project entitled Sensual Assassins and subsequently Paul has also lent his mastering ears to several of my solo projects including Endless Tapes, Ex-Wise Heads and my first solo album Third Vessel.
I am playing a selection of basses across the tracks and enjoyed fitting into the DIY punk ethos vibe, enhanced also by guitar from (Ex-Dr Feelgood) guitarist Gordon Russell.
On the right my copy of the new Tim Bowness album, out now, and already picking up some great reviews, I'll be participating in live shows in support of Tim's release, see previous blog here.
Bye for now,
