It’s always the curse of these things: you write and you write and you write your songs, then you record them, then you mix them, then you get them mastered, then you tell people about them, then you make the artwork, then you fix up the website, then you upload them ... and then when the time finally comes to write the relevant news item (like this one), you are so exhausted and sick of the project that you struggle to say anything meaningful whatsoever without repeating yourself.

But what I am happy to say is this: Fear of Telephones is an EP to be proud of. It is the most genuine, personal Coming Down Happy release yet, a proper insight into how shit my life was back when I wrote these songs, all lead by real instruments which (I’m sure you'll agree) add an element of heart you simply cannot program in Cubase. And despite my complainy first paragraph, I really did enjoy the whole process, the music flowing naturally from me and falling...

It’s probably about time I come clean with you guys. It’s the least I can do.

And yet above all else (and here is the real punchline), it’s because I have other sizeable plans for the outlet. I’ve had them for a while.

If you’ve paid attention (you haven't), you would have heard me mention it before in a couple of places here and there, but nobody knows the extent of what goes on in my head, least of all me. For...

And who could have predicted that after the long line of monsters I'd been excreting, my creative sperm/egg concoction had the ability to reproduce into something so sweet and optimistic? It’s as if the dark curse has been lifted off my family, and perhaps now we can ignore the sideways laughter in the supermarket and remove the dull blinds from our windows. I’ve been eating a lot of vegetables lately. The clocks are no longer keeping me up at night. The gentle rains have quenched the thirsty drought, and not a moment too soon. I caught myself laughing yesterday evening and I nearly fainted in shock.

The pages of the Black EP have been closed, waved off by our latest edition Oh My God, Amen, and the rumours are all delightfully true. Fresh air is no longer a luxury, as to which I am sure the video will be proof enough for your ears. However, if you loathe...
