Ramadan 2020

This year 2020 i partook in Ramadan. (in UAE time)

I wished to observe it using the 4 hours ahead, mate what for ? you might ask after. I'm not sure how you hold your faith but since travelling to the UAE region, i find it quite easy to imagine the time zone the sunlight the folk and the ambience there. After all there's no holy sites in the UK about the text & the miracles. And of those carrying on the message after the event their sermons often shift gear through BC AD + GMT so anyway that's where i held ramadan 2020.

Sugar played a huge event in the twisting of the stomach in the most hungry times. Removing sugar in the second week made daytimes less frantic but more lethargic. The taste of food was so sweet once sun went down, thank god Mohammed was not into sadism by fasting for weeks.

Motivations were drinking fruit during the day instead of eating fruit (65), drinking milk as a food substitute, ( i never actually did that) My temper , mood and social interaction was less gentile often snapping in hungry angst. in the final week i was used to the timbre & avoided where i could meeting or discussing things that were not urgent.
I wondered the motivation for Muslims around the worlds interpretation and how Jewish passover is not maintained within Christianity yet revived under Mohammed, after christ.

Glad its all over now, Happy Eid & peace be among you all


when i say "it will happen here"

It could mean anything if you don't know what to look for,

Maybe its commenting about the left right balance

Maybe its the placement within the room

It could be if added together there is silence

Like you may not get from a to o without seeing e

its probably only for you

if you want it my way

if you need to make it your own

its fire, brimstone,

but remember before you publish your complaint,

you may want a feminine feel rather than tank shells,

well, its a bit colder now, then, to be sure.

Beginning with our first deal in 1999, there's not been a worse manager A&R man than the 'life's too short' episode.

The song written for Graeme Suzuki ( obviously different name ) is the feelings of me having a beer whilst belatedly viewing him using heroin from silver foil and a flame below igniting the rock making vapours providing him with I don't know what. Graeme was light puffy faced lacking pigment in his skin & frail, slow to react, morose yet smiling widely. The image wasn't easy to forget, but writing it in note form then into music dissipated an image I disliked insidiously. But you ask isn't composing melody, rhythms & barre chords only making poignancy stronger, & there is the psychological benefit from talking, safe bet theres nobody who want to be reminded of 'that time they knew needle man' or being the user themselves and up pops facebook photo of them or song they recognise being themselves, yet its not an image i wish to meander, keep faithfully, persevere, possess or demonstrate later in life.
And that's the truth of my little shelved song.

I see you looking at the first sentence thinking holy exploding cow, thats nothing to do with the first sentence, but pour your Bacardi, and hear its end.
The worst A+R manager ever listened to the song thinking, he's written this about xxxx xxxxx' and I could get xxxxx his rival something in the making if I promote it like that.(earning their piece of the pie) Regardless of how the song was hewn. Thats the media's worst angle its presumption of only one target, discipline guides us to presume its highest member is our obvious chosen inspiration, sadly its just something I once attended based in a vision upon metaphors then expanded. Very few listened to it, I know one or four remember it & often raise its hook in passing.

In no way do I intermingle this using the senate[h reference of the fallen in war often intermingled with the ex-street knowledge but I acknowledge that is possible if you wish to disturb.

Thank Yous

Cornovirus thank yous

We are now permanently shut because of the disease

During this extended quarantine section i would like to extend my heart felt thank you's to ALL musicians, vocalists, writers, percussionists, rappers & drivers involved in keeping our community maintained, on time & travel distances only to lay down impeccable performances.

The list is so long, only time prevents me from writing cards and messages to you all.

The Drummers who brought kit, moved stands, carried microphones, listened to out of world descriptions

The Guitarists bringing pedals, wonderful inversions & fetching new valves

The singers remembering lyrics, reading scribble, ignoring light & laughing when they've heard it before.

THANK YOU, you are out of this WORLD
