War on Terra

Teardrop Explodes

April 2002, and a bullet list of where I was at, was – Bath – Staying temporarily in my sister’s spare room – Jobless – Nearly broke, having spent almost all my savings on a six month doss around Thailand. […]

An American Way of Life

A bit of ambient electronica weirdness for you. Taken from my unreleased second album “I Know Longer Care”. You can download your very own copy of it here. Samples are taken from the BBC Documentary ‘The Beyond Within’, a fascinating […]

And so wee present the final two pages of Neil Codling‘s Glen Coinlid’s 1991’s Easter’s Special’s Special. And the law of diminishing returns has set in- a steadily-declining hit rate, resembling the lower slopes of the Cotswold Hills slumping towards […]

Glen Coinlid #4

In which Neil Codling tackles the really big questions of back in the day, such as “Where is shirts?” and “How do you write your name in pints?” Even though this was created in 1991, and what you see here […]
