I’ll be back in Copenhagen this weekend for an all day event with some fantastic musicians:
17.06.13 New project Douglas Firs
I’m delighted to announce a new musical collaboration with Mark Beazley called Douglas Firs. Mark founded the group Rothko in early 1997, and has since released a range of material, both collaborative and solo in nature. Mark also mastered my last record ‘The Safety Machine’ and did a wonderful job! You can read more about him and his work over at http://www.tracerecordings.com
I still have some copies of ‘The Safety Machine’ on double vinyl. You can also purchase all three of my records on the bandcamp page clicking below:
