about

This is where it all started really. I'd had to move back in with my parents up in Gloucestershire after I lost my job in Bristol as motorcycle courier by riding into the back of a Landrover at 40mph. I spent the summer recovering, on the dole, reading books and playing guitar. I started writing lots of little songs about characters I'd made up and decided to record them in one album called 'Storytime.' I spent a month's dole money on a four track and set about making the album in my bedroom. It all sounds a bit whimsical and lo-fi but there are a few good songs on it, especially My Garden Is You, The City Lost Me Too and Emma-Louise (which I would re-record later with AFDFS.)

The bonus tracks are from my first attempt at the album. They didn't quite work, but looking back I'm quite fond of them.
