GYPSY ROSE

Another track from the January 2024 release of the 'Shadows Loom and Voices Mutter' album of demos. Made on a Tascam 144 portastudio around 1990, it's a rather rustic and primitive recording, but hopefully you get the idea. 

Shamus Dark - vocal, acoustic guitar & keyboard 

Andy Dewar - drum programming

Here's another song I wrote back in the 1980's and played live many times with my band. We made this recording in 1989 and got some radio plays on the BBC at the time.

Here's another song I wrote back in the 1980's and played live many times with my band. We made this recording in 1989 and got some radio plays on the BBC at the time. When dusting off the cobwebs from my archive I thought that despite its age, the production is pretty good and so here it is, expertly remastered by Pete Maher and now issued as a single in the digital domain, available for downloading here or streaming more or less everywhere.

FEEL THE RHYTHM

Here's one of the demos from an album of demos, 'Shadows Loom and Voices Mutter' originally written and recorded in the 1980's and now released in January 2024 (see below for album details). This track sounds OK-ish, but lacks a funky bass which would improve things greatly. The recording, made on a very early Tascam 144 4 track portastudio using a cassette, is rustic and rather primitive, but does give an idea of what could have been. 

Shamus Dark - vocals & keyboards 

Adrian Sledmere - electric guitar

A tale of derring-do and ultimate failure, this recording came to light while clearing the cobwebs from my archive. I wrote the song in the 1980's and performed it live many times with my band. This version was recorded at the Workshop 16 Studio in South London in 1989. The video to the track is below, but viewers beware if you easily get seasick!
