Last weekend I ventured to Rendlesham airbase, situated in the deepest depths of Suffolk. Ufology fans may recognise this as the site for one of Britain’s most famous UFO sightings in the early eighties, also known as the ‘UK Roswell’. The location was so remote, that even with Google’s help we managed to get completely lost and ended up driving though a burst river and stuck at a locked old gate to the airbase, which I’m actually convinced was the infamous east gate where the UFO was originally spotted, spooky coincidence?!
Finished work on Friday and felt equally excited and nervous about the first leg of my tour in London that evening. The nerves mainly down to it being a good few months since I’ve played live and having built up a shed load of new material I’d not had a chance to test on any humans, apart from my very enthusiastic one year old daughter, who would happily bop along to a dog barking given the chance.
Czech plug-in developers Audified, known for their meticulous recreations of rare outboard equipment, have teamed up with DWe (Drum Workshop Electronics) to create a new drum-focused processor. Designed to speed up your workflow when processing drums, the Drum Enhancer has specifically designed parameters designed simplify and speed up working with drum and percussive sounds.

2017 was a quiet year for me in terms of gigs, as I’d shifted my focus onto some studio and sync projects. Anyway, this is looking to change next year.
I’m currently writing a hefty new Luke’s Anger live set which has more bounce to the ounce 😮 and will be touring it in 2018!
Already got some tasty bookings around Europe + beyond, which I’ll announce in the new year. If you want to get in on the action, use the contact form and lets chat ya!
Peace and hair grease!
I first learnt about Don Buchla and his synthesiser designs when studying the work of Morton Subotnik whilst at university in 2003 and the alien timbres of ‘Silver Apples On The Moon’ (1967) has stuck with me ever since.
Eventide return with another one of their great algorithms lifted from the H9 effects pedal. I first came across the MangledVerb in their Space pedal. It combined nice distortion with strange modulated reverb tails, I actually always preferred this algorithm to the more famous ‘Black Hole’ setting also on the Space and H9 pedals. This is part of a series of plug in releases from the aforementioned H9 pedal (you can see my UltraTap review here)
