Robert Lane 7 years later and here I am. I think today was a good day to discover this album as it is exactly what I needed. Faith that it’s possible to age gracefully and continue to produce relevant music / art at any time instead of simply trotting out the “hits” and sitting on your laurels. Thank you Tom, sincerely, thank you for continuing to be you and do what you do: create interesting art and music!

Iris @Tom, what's the test in Rhine? I'd like to take it.

By the way I hear Coil's blue rats in "recall". Is this one of the things you said you had taken the time to weave in?

TL/DR - this is what I do for fun. Don't stress on it.

Six years ago I took stock of the vampires and creeps that populate the 'independent' music industry and figured that there was nothing there for me anymore. The whole thing could blow it out its copious arse.

Thing is, music industry isn't music, which I love and need and would still make if the last person on earth. So that wasn't going to stop.

When we closed shop it signalled a whole bunch of new people in my life. Unlike the last lot they seemed bright and caring and to be really into what we had done. It was great to have new family but after a while it dawned on me that we'd swapped our vampires for undertakers. These new guys throw a hell of a funeral! They like funerals so much they dig up the old bones over and over again.

I love these guys, but they get all anxious if you mention any year past 1980 something and, you know, I ain't dead yet. So I just did my music. The weird thing being that I started to get jealous of my old self.
Man, that guy got all the praise, the smug bastard.

Maybe I should have been working on some grand project that would throw music into the future but I like to listen to strange pop songs and so that's what I have made. For the longest time I didn't think they were worth sharing and then realised that was more pretentious than just putting them out here.

In a industry where every fool claims to be a genius all I am going to say is here's my new tunes. I have reworked them 1000x each and have to stop.

I also have to warn you I have had time to set up some puzzles and hidden things to find!
