Cool links and stuff...

first up, probably Swindon's finest, and definitely most idiosyncratic, composer Richard Wileman. listen to this guy's stuff, it's very different. I admire Richard immensely not least for ploughing a straight furrow, from the very first recordings with "Lives & Times" to Karda Estra's latest you can hear the thread that runs through all of his work.

so, you're in to death metal are definitly won't like Mr Love and Justice then. over the last 11 years Rob has lent his meager talent to live work and recording with the band. described as 'historical, socio-political, agri-folk' which I think would probably put people me it is folky Beatles/Byrds/XTC...ness. all very accessible actually...
also, it is a strange coincidence that MLJ shared the bill at the Tolpuddle Festival with a certain Mr Bragg and soon after the same Mr Bragg released an album called (strangely) Mr Love and Justice..weird hey!

we know you could be reading this page from anywhere on the great big web but - if you ever want to do some recording, mastering etc (in Wiltshire) do check out Pete Lamb's Music Workshop. Pete has got some good gear and knows how to get great sound, but what is more important he'll get the sound you want. he is a very affable fellow and number one chap all round.

also, we're going to plug our mate because we think he's fab...and hope you will too. his name is Fred Blunt and he draws great pictures....the guy is awsome. click on Fred's pic to see some more of his work....he's got great taste in music too... but he wouldn't be our mate if he didn't would he!

cool cats

in the music business you do come across a lot of people who's ego outweighs their talent.
working with, or even having to endure, these people simply reinforces what a pleasure it is to know, and be involved with people do what they love, love what they do and just get on with the job...

there are always loads of people to thank - so if you think you're one of them then "thanks" from all of us.
