Well howdy. This website was inspired/conceived/started/created in no small degree by Emily Taggart. She had the great idea of trying to pull all my various dislocated antics together in a digital form. The blog is me butting in for a moment(o)
It’s the end of the digital age so what better time to make a Momento from A digital Age available free for download. I was inspired to dothis when I listened to one of the tracks “You Are Here” on my new listeningcontraption. It plugs in my I pod and sends a signal via the induction loop tomy hearing aids. This decade has seen me confront the demons of my hearing lossas my left ear decided to pack up almost completely. That is what comes oftelling the Times that you really are going deaf and they hang the article onit. The pay off was being called the future of rock and roll.
Momento from a Digital Age began as two tracks I recordedwith Jyoti White Town Mishra. He is a big fan of off kilter pop and we met at aDavid Devant concert. It was Jyoti that commented on he transcendental natureof a Devant show. I wrote to lyrics of going to London on the way to his housein Derby. The next track Germaine Greer was recorded when he had moved toNorwich. I actually did see Germaine Greer at the traffic lights and then heardher give an interview at GLR.
So in my inimitable dislocated way this is my Momento of aDigital Age. The album by Carfax. Carfax takes its name from the centre ofHorsham where the last public hanging took place. Going To London is theobvious single the others are the sound of a man coming to terms with havingstood inert while his publicist told the head of radio one that he was a bitlike Dame Edna Everidge “you know different characters”.
Just click on the Song Titles to download the tunes but remember I sometimes can't stick to one name…
