ATHEIST ADVENT IS OVER

December 26, 2012

Thanks for listening to Atheist Advent!

The last few songs are up, including some guitar work of which I’m rather proud, intended to give all those family gatherings across the Christian world a wee bit of extra lubrication for the end run; and my surprise at finding I can sing overtones.

Songs for late December 2012

December 20, 2012

Just posted up three more songs on Atheist Advent 2012

www.atheistadvent.com

After a disturbed songwriting week I’m now getting back into the swing of things. I look forward to the last week of AA more than anything else in the year, as it’s when the ideas that were buried under the middling ideas I’ve used up finally get aired.

These latest three are a bit ropey, I guess, but I hope there’s some good stuff to follow. Of course, it’s not up to me, but god.

Happy Atheist Advent

New song: Unspecified Incident at Sea

December 4, 2011

Here’s a new song for today’s Atheist Advent, about some troubling incident at sea. I don’t know where, if anywhere, this plot line will go.

Atheist Advent 2011

December 2, 2011

I’ve started this year’s Atheist Advent! Two songs up so far, and a third currently in my head and about to be recorded. The third one is not exactly the po-faced nu-folk that I normally prefer to write. I’m not going to do much writing on this blog this year: please check out

http://www.atheistadvent.com/

and you can subscribe on iTunes off that page too. I’m podcasting more than filming this year. I don’t know why I got so fixed on film when music is so unarguably about sound.

for songs, chat and discussion. But I’ll come back here from time to time, certainly.

Happy Atheist Advent.

27 December: Atheist Advent 2010 is over!

December 27, 2010

Thank you so much for tuning in to Atheist Advent 2010. A final song is now up: Lord of Misrule, along with some blurb about that song and the whole project generally.

I am not sure where I will go with this next. Reckon I’ll sit on it for a while and see what comes to mind. In the new year I’ve got a non-musical political project planned: I need to get my brain back in gear about the games playing out around the world. Hopefully I’ll play some more concerts with the amazing Atheist Advent bank which played on 7th December, though I’m not yet sure how we’ll pitch ourselves when it’s not Advent.

I hope you’re well, wherever you are in the world; and I really do think that this is a good year to cause trouble. Whatever you care about it, press your cause. The only rule is: make sure someone knows you’re doing it. No point addressing god or the higher powers. That line is dead.

Things are happening. 2011 could be remembered like 1968; only this time, it might not all run into the sand. The media is not leading this; politicians are not leading. As Robert Foster says, it’s up to us.
