Having Nothing Then Giving It Away by Posset
Having Nothing Then Giving it Away (2008)
One of the earliest pieces of solo gonk I have. A guitar and a Dictaphone/pause button woggle. Nowt else.
The Child Tells a Lie (2009)
Obsession with Alan Pease’ disgraced book on Body Language led me to see a pencil drawing of...my daughter on page 42. Shock scared this one outta me.
Insurance Policy (2010)
A real and genuine attempt to make a proper pop song – my insurance policy (obviously invalid now). But you shoulda seen my haircut!
The Shame of Metal (2008)
One Ravi Shankar Record with a heavy finger on the turntable (twice). Very excited as I thought I’d found the philosophers stone...
Micro-piece recorded for Sindre Berja. Inuit counting game by any other name.
Coleslaw Surfiet (2009)
Another hotel recording (Lincoln UK). Full of dairy brass and ready for action.
Short piece recorded on a train from Edinburgh to Glasgow... no one even looked at me.
Rainy afternoon: Guitar x 2 and Barbie Typewriter. The kids had terrible coughs so we wrapped this up toot-suite.
King of the Kick Boxers (2011)
All sounds taken from the film of the same name. Officially sanctioned by zoviet:france.
Will You Picture Me In My Robe? (2010)
You dig Urge Overkill? Title ripped from their Vacation in Tokyo track. Music scraped from inside the collective throat.
Baby You're a Rich Man (2013)
Musical Source? The Fab Four. Method of approach? Double Dictaphone outta wack. Where’s my Sgt Pepper?
Bruff Knick (2011)
Random-tape ‘schusss’, Arabic vices and loopy whines. Mic dropped about half way through (KLUNK).
The Inside of Glam Clam (2013)
Designed to simulate the fine detail inside a common bi-valve.
Posset Vs Alan Wilkinson (2012)
It was my habit to record the soundcheck of the headliner and then spraff all over it like a snotty punk. Exact example. Sorry Alan.
Field Recording from legendary Star & Shadow cinema during rawkus pre-teen music session.
Victor Von Victory (2009)
Cross between Dr Doom’s intro music and amphetamine rush up a rusty pylon.
Mod Vs Skinhead (2013)
Deliberate attempt to create time-shift using vocal harmonics and answer-phone tapes.
Not in order now but feel free to edit, reshuffle or ignore. Tallis is the cat's name.
