Makin’ Music Part 1

Necessity is the mother of invention, and while the commercial outlet for creativity has been stifled, people are ever-ready to innovate to stave off lockdown boredom and do something fun.

So it was that, after a chat with my old mate Ryan Barquilla, with whom I use to play in Tom Likes Dogs, The World’s Greatest Covers Band*, and decided to get the band back together in lockdown. It seems odd that, with the four members of the band in Essex, London, Newcastle and Berlin, it was a good opportunity to get the band back together, but there you go – that’s definitely one good thing about t’internet.

So here you are – our first “live” “reunion” of 2020, twelve years after we last played together! With a little Easter egg at the end for those listeners d’un certain age. And with luck maybe there’ll be a few more to follow.


*May not actually be true.

Away from the page, I work for the UK Space Agency on a European programme of space robotics for advanced satellite and planetary exploration technologies. All of which comes in rather handy when coming up with new ideas for science fiction stories. My first novel Man O’War was published in 2018 by Snowbooks, and I’ve had a few short stories published hither and yon. I’m a member of the Society of Authors and a supporter of SFFChronicles. I was born in Forest Gate, east London, and now live in Essex with my wife and two daughters.
