5 Uncomfortable Truths

There’s 5 uncomfortable truths about guitar culture that we, the players, need to address. Now, please.

In this 5-part video-essay mini-series, I talk about some of the weird ideas that guitarists have held on to for far to long. Some of them are holding us back and some are just plain dumb. Let’s evolve.

Release Day!

IHA Cover.JPGYep, that’s it. Release day. Today I release Irradiated Hamster Alert as Blue Alatar. The album represents about 8 years of work on-and-off, much of which took place this last year. The album is available on most music apps, (incl Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer), as well as ones that I manage: ReverbNation and BandCamp. You can pay-what-you-like for the BandCamp download, including nothing. Seriously, have it for free if you want. But, also, if you want to send £700 that would be just fine.

Earlier today I hosted a live, online launch party where I talk-through some of the track details, as well as the album’s over-arching narrative. We go into detail with some of the production and instruments, thank everyone who was involved behind-the-scenes, all of which took about 3 hours. Oh, boy.

Not yet satisfied? Fine, more links:

Now, go download the album from BandCamp. That’s your call to action, I’m making it very clear.

Remixes as Album Promotion

How can you use remixes to promote an album or release?

Talking about some of my remixes; why I think they’re fun; how you can use them to promote an album or E.P.; how to commission a remix; how to find a producer to work with – all this and more!

This is the interview with Yvette from B-Side, as mentioned:
