Favourite Podcasts

This is just a quick recommendation for the wonderful, okay, deep breath…
El Diabolik’s World of Psychotronic Soundtracks podcast/show.

A finer show covering soundtrack and library music from, I guess, the 60s, 70s and 80s I have yet to find.

Well presented with a nice mix of talk and songs they also go the extra mile in posting the regularly fantastic cover art from the releases played during each show on the website.

Read more and listen via the website at or tune in/subscribe via itunes or spotify.

This post bought to you by several days spent decorating which has left me all caught up with my podcasts along with a paint splattered phone.

In a genuine, non clickbaity way, if anyone knows of similar podcasts of this nature, not necessarily film soundtracks only, please do recommend them in the comments – I’m well stocked for talk based ones but a little light when it comes to those of the musical variety.

Looking for The Barbican Bootleg

I‘m trying to track down, and willing to buy*, a copy of Frizzi 2 Fulci – The Barbican Bootleg on Beat Records Company of Italy.

I was at the show at the Barbican for Halloween of 2014 and it was a great show.

I’ve been to a few of these kind of things now and for the diversity of music and performance this was probably the best so I’d recommend it if you like this kind of thing and have the chance.

Why am I trying to track down a copy of this specific release and posting it on here I hear you ask?

Well the short answer is because a photo I took on the night was used on the back cover of this release without my knowledge…

Frizzi 2 Fulci The Barbican Bootleg Beat Records Company release

I only found out about it when a friend sent me a link to a copy that had just sold on eBay. Seems a few sold on there but I guess, perhaps as the music isn’t fully licensed or something based on the title, and they only seem to sell this CD at live shows.

I‘ve been trying to work on some oil paintings of late, here is one that turned out okay I think…


Custom Flag Painting

This was a custom design to be hand painted on a flag. As such the design was just a rough sketch, but that said I do quite like how it turned out.

I’ll do my best to get a photo of the completed flag when we get a sunny day where the wind is blowing in the right direction!

The View from the Office

i started taking photographs from the office kitchen window around 2009 when we moved offices. One each morning while the computers are warming up at around 8am. Dates are approximate as I tend to upload a weeks worth and file them to filter in to the tumblr over the following week.

I changed camera once  during this and also I seem to have lost a bunch of early ones, due largely to not thinking of setting up a tumblr to upload/archive them.

Quick sketch…

I have a project I’m working on at the moment where I feel some illustrations would bring more to the project than stock photos would. They need to be quite quick to do and relatively simple. So I’ve been trying a few sketches in ink with a quick water colour wash. I think it may work…
