Recording bass…

A short (cough) video of Jon laying down some fretless bass on a track from our forthcoming (as yet untitled) album.


A remix of one of the tracks from “Laik Tors”. The footage of dragonflies was taken in the Lincolnshire Wolds at 8 o’clock in the evening.

Nick’s solo album

  Das Rad Guitarist Nick Robinson has released a solo album “Lost Garden” on Discus Music. Created solely with a guitar, the music has attracted favourable comments from Adrian Belew and Steve Hackett and several other notables. The album is a world away from the typical guitarists cliched “riff with melody” albums and explores the […]

and then there were 4….

As the world seems to be establishing a new equilibrium, we’ve decide we should work towards some live dates (before zimmer frames become essential).

pete rophone

We’re delighted that Peter Rophone will contribute to our next album (as yet untitled). He has an extraordinary voice, which I think bears comparison to the late Jeff Buckley. We’ve sent him a suitably spacious piece and asked him to work his magic. Can’t wait to hear what he comes up with! Here’s a track […]
