#12daysofoontzmas #behindthemusic

I'm going to do a pre-holiday 12 days of anti-xmas behind the music stories for some tracks from the catalogue. I very much enjoy folk to takeaway their own vibe or meaning from things but sometimes the circumstance around a track is a fun surprise.

on the first day of oontzmas controlfreak gave to me... one retribution and some oontz in a tree...

here is a track from the album “manipulate” that could very easily be considered a battle anthem for unrequited love, or powerful loss and betrayal. Well kinda, you see, at the time of writing this track we were in a pretty posh flat and it had a pretty nice kitchen, however, the sink disposal was fucking possessed by a demon. Instead of grinding and disposing it would make an Einstürzende Neubauten racket and eject shit OUT of the sink. It was “repaired” thrice and would still go into eject mode making mess after mess. So I vowed for retribution. When it was replaced I got to do the honours of chucking it in the skip. YAY!

I am working on new music for 2023. Unfortunately my health has been seriously hindering creative work and employment so I use whatever energy I do muster for gardening to feed the fam and trickle some volatile market income. In #solidarity all my music is always free or donation and creative commons share alike. If you are in a position to have some coin to donate it will be well received.

you can get most of the catalgoue in whatever format you like for free or donation at
