“First The Fire” [alternative version]
I’ve revisited the opening track from ‘Hawksmoor’. This is not a corrected version or a better version or a directors-cut version, simply an alternative.
The first section has been pared back a little in the pads and padding with Ian Halstead’s fretless bass popping out a bit more with its harmonics and low frequency rumblings.
The second, thundering section has new instrumentation as the main riffs are taken down a notch to make room for some screaming, distorted Nyckelharpas.

Nice trip on Sunday up into the hills near Abergavenny to get ourselves some new chickens.
Safe travels little Kimster! My beloved little Kimi is off on his bi-annual holiday to Switzerland for a new battery and servicing. Will miss you. See you again in 4 weeks and £85 time! 😭👋
Frozen puddle up in the big field this morning. You can tell how many hours old it is by counting the rings. Fact.

Knocked up a nice supper tonight based on something I saw on an old Nigella programme in the week. Boil up the spaghetti, whilst frying up some lardons in olive oil and chopping up some flat leaf parsley, then pour the drained spaghetti into the pan with the lardons and thrown in the parsley and stir it all up with a dash more oil and ground black pepper. 😋
Rainbow at the beach.

It’s not gone well... 🤣
Happy new year / decade!
NEW MUSIC - I’m very proud to say that The Rain Dog’s latest work is now uploaded to #Soundcloud and available for free download.
“HAWKSMOOR” is an album of instrumentals, inspired by the mood and themes of Peter Ackroyd's macabre postmodernist masterpiece of a novel. As such I've chosen to describe it as “the soundtrack to an imagined film”.
It reunites members from various incarnations of The Rain Dogs and from across the UK: Ian Halstead on fretless bass, Pete Cox on electric guitar, and Rob Jenkinson (also of industrial band Smallcreep) on electric guitar - with me on keyboards, programming, and Chapman Stick.
Hope you like it.
Ian, Pete, Rob - thank you so much for your contributions! 🙌🙌🙌

NEW MUSIC: "Into Darkness" A spur of the moment reworking of some elements and riffs lifted from the track "Waking The Old Gods" from the HAWKSMOOR project. Meshed in with new gloomy drones, ominous marching drum, Nyckelharpas, grubby strings, and lead synth.
Performed by:
Me - keyboards and programming
Rob Jenkinson - electric guitar

Why not start your weekend off with some wine, low lights, and a totally ambient chill with "Waterland - Part iii" - third instalment in my locally-inspired minimalist series of noodlings.
All done on keyboards - gamelan style pulse, drones, mixed strings and Nyckelharpa noises.

So m’colleague @jenkotronics has sent back his final contributions for the HAWKSMOOR project and it feels like the good old days when we played together in the industrial band Smallcreep. Everywhere I needed his noisy energy is now positively “awash with mosh”.
Final mixdowns of all 8 pieces now underway. It’s sounding great. A massive dark soundtrack to an imagined movie.

An ambient meditation for piano, Nyckelharpa, experimental cello, e-Bow, and drone.

First @fimcevrepsol race of the day is #moto3 - grid forming up in a few minutes time @circuitvalencia
8am and though it looks pretty quiet, the paddock is already full of the sound of bikes being revved in pitlane. @fimcevrepsol @circuitvalencia
So tonight, continuing my theme of “things I don’t tend to eat back home” it’s a spatchcock chargrilled rabbit. Conejo con ali oli. ❤️🇪🇸🍽🍷
