I'm a big fan of this band,although they need to get a singer I think the music is interesting enough in itself to warrant a spin or two.The last track(shimmering up the stairs) features Ducklingmonster on electronics.
Does this band have anything to say,probably not.All I can say is if they come to town throw some loose change at them because they're not kidding when they say they're homeless and hungry.

merry xMAS!

the glitter shines on...


Fuck jizz,poetry already!Yes it is,and, it is very creative. My friend Victoria who is an undiagnosed manic depressive wrote these as part of her "My Contributions To Contemporary Culture In The Face Of Fashion" four volume set of epic poems.This immensely massive piece of work has never been published. So look on listener and be welcomed into Victoria's word-world...
These recordings were from her critically acclaimed reading at the Conservative Lefty Lesbian Bookstore and were produced by a skinny man wearing rainbow spandex....believe me,Victoria's words are not to be taken lightly!

I cannot recommend this fine sampling of Victoria's fine body of work and it's all you're getting because she's all mine...

Dick Smith Practice For Nothing Sessions (2009)

This group had a lot of dreams about success and wealth. Unfortunately they had no idea on how to achieve these things. This session was recorded in a bedroom in Melbourne during a sunny winter's day last year. Josh's room, Jackson's recording equipment and Dick Smith.
These tunes are roughly mixed on digital format and are not edited-so you get the bad bits. Talk amongst yourself if your interest follows elsewhere.



For technical questions you should ask Dick Smith...


Here's two songs from the Maltese Falcons.This combo is a recording project consisting of Beth Dawson and Pat Kraus. Both these folks have been making music in various combos for a while now.This is their latest project and will be released soon as an album.These two tracks are a sampler for you.
If you want to contact the artists follow these link....Pat and Beth.

band consists of the following: BACK COVER UP THERE...
Mason James-bass
Lynton Denovan-guitar
Oly Dixon-drums
Paul Solly-guitar
We played for less than a year.
Hardly anyone came to see us.
We couldn't find a singer.
Apparently the space thing had been done before.

Here is the Starcruzer e.p.
Peter Trevalyan and myself made the cover.Peter gave the nazi plane thing a bit of a sci-fi bent.
Thanks Peter!

I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS one and,remember there are a couple of bootlegs floating around wearing boogie boots and rodeo hats that I could rope onto mediafire...

Well this is a three-fer that I made solo style on tascam in Wellington above a late night gay karaoke disco bar.Optimistic times,no words to confuse matters just dubby good vibes in a relaxed and open atmosphere.Download on a track by track basis because I haven't figured out how to do folder uploads yet.

The original mix of this was meant to be in stereo but I hadn't figured out stereo on the sound software at that stage.....
Crack a few eggs on this one!


.........this little fucker was made shortly after I had a break up,so it ebbs slightly towards the darker shades of mauve.Four songs,four tracks,slap in the face,one man show.When was this made?2008 during winter in Wellington while I was working for an esteemed local entrepreneurial gardener.We had a banner waving in the wind by the name of Public Records and this plastic gem was one of those fifty run cdr's.....

Enjoy and remember that if you're feeling like a bit of an egg,don't crack up.

James Last - Silver Machine

wow this one is a bit of a classic!

Lynton Works (2001-2008)

this may work...

sonic country
cannibal maggots attack
st. chammond tank
gentleman's regiment

fed up with food
public wobble limit

maquinas de sangre

Well I hope this works.These works were recorded by me in Lyttelton and Wellington(between 2001-2009...I am a bit hazy on years;I may have to consult the archives..).My Grandma took the picture of me when I was eight in front of Devil's Punchbowl Falls in Arthur's Pass...

Call this a "Greatest Hits Package",my gift to the world's ears..

Satanic Rockers

I recorded this album on tascam four track during the fungal winter of 2008 in Wellington.It is my psychedelic concept rock album about "everyman" rocker who over gets into showbiz and proceeds to have a hallucinatory breakdown....Thanks to Mr Rob Buick for initially uploading these files.....
ANy questions will be happily answered!

HEAVY TURKEY e.p.(2008)

Here is the first Heavy Turkey mini-album.This combo is myself on drums and Dave Michaels on bass and lead vocals.Dave and I had been through two combos by this point(Talent Quest and Anti-Quest) and had stripped down the sound into a power duo.Playing parties and concerts were our forte and people seemed to like it....Here's a link to a live gig we did in Dunedin last year at my friend Pat's record store(Records Records).....

Here are the track links::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

copporn(live at the Adelaide)

Dave and I drew the back cover,Oly Dixon was the sound engineer and we originally only made fifty of these hen's teeth..

Here's the only Talent Quest album thus far.T.Q. was floating around Wellington around 2007(not totally sure,will have to consult the archives...) and can lay claim to being the "only true punk band in Wellington" during it's tenure.Hardly anyone would come to our shows and the ones that did would tell us to get a new singer.Fuck 'em! Andy has a great voice and wrote a good lyric or two....
How did it start Lynton?Well,I put an ad in a local zine looking for interested musicians to get this large beach ball rolling.What I got was a bunch of likely lads; half of whom had little or no musical experience(but post-graduate diplomas in dough kneading) and two retired meatworkers with a lot of experience playing in Batman tribute bands.
We carved that ROCK until it had become a formidable weapon of cultural combat....
Listen on my friend for this is future heritage.....
Well there you go..also,I have some tapes where we are doing more of a poetry ambient jazz thing and a rocking version of "Dazed and Confused",so these may in the future make the transition from cassette to BLOG....

ROCKSHOP "Rocksolid" e.p. (2009)

This e.p. was recorded in Wellington with my friends Kristen,Edie,and Kim.We had this band(Rockshop) going for a few month's in N.Z.'s capital city.
I posted this so that my bandmates can let me know what they think of the mix(if anyone else happens to download this hot little packet of awesomeness so be it.)...
Hot Levels Mix has been a long while a-comin'!

I think I'm getting the hang of this,when I get it properly mixed I may repost it with a back cover and lyrics...there could also be a live album from one of the last gigs we did at Spacething.
Here's a bit of footage of us in action at the Klearnote Tavern and Bistro...
Put it in your skull!

I Hope This Works

Here's a recording I did yesterday.I bought my first computer a couple of weeks ago and am figuring out how to use protools.The mix is rough and there will eventually be some vocals going over the top.Three guitars and drums......this is fresH!
(I called it "Saturday Session" for conveniance as I don't have the lyrics sussed yet.....).Get a wad of incense burning.....
