Sometime around the beginning of July 2022 we’re going to discontinue this site and move the commercial side to Bandcamp (not active until then).
This will be just prior to the release of ‘Melodic Apoptosis’ on 22nd.

As always, the best way to get up-to-date info is via my Twitter account


This album releases October 2nd on Bandcamp and will be available in all formats on this site October 9th.

There is a 15 minute sampler of the album on the ‘listen’ page here ⬆️

24th April 2020

Wooooooooooooo! I am selling a few things in the autumn VEMIA  auction, including the Vox Jaguar I played on ‘Loaded Gun’, and the Atari that produced all the Heligoland backing tracks, using Notator to  trigger an Akai sampler. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

12th August

I would like to thank everyone who sent me kind messages in response to my supposed retirement from recording. I will reply to as many as I can, but just in case I miss anyone out….apologies. I am going to Orkney for a week on Sunday and am determined to be Internet-free, and by the time I get back I will have forgotten all about you.

I would also like to remind that the Facebook page, although not administered by me, will remain active as far as I know, especially as there are still some things I want to do with the existing material; for instance, I have fashioned a remix of One Girl which I will post soon, and I also intend to shoot a film for it before Christmas. I may also look at 10 sketches again with a view to releasing it on vinyl.

time now to go and shoot some grouse, if I can find some in Devon

best wishes



7th August 2015

There will be two new tracks released next week; they can be seen as A and B sides of a single, and they will be free to download from this site. There will also be a video (of sorts).

Although it’s still possible I may start a new recording next year, this very much represents a clearing-out of the vaults; both these tracks were recorded before the One Girl EP, but I only recently decided to release them, as I wasn’t sure how they fitted in (I still don’t know whether they are Heligoland or Tim Friese-Greene releases, but will have to decide later today as the artwork has to be finished).

What swung it though, was not only the fact that I still enjoy both these songs years after I recorded them, but also that they both inhabit areas I have not previously explored, and thus I thought they deserved an airing.

Postage-free sale now until Sunday 23.00. Thought we should include a weekend.

I mean, some of us work.
