Studious album cover.

Our new album Studious is now on Bandcamp. It’s like a compilation album, as all the songs were recorded for four previously released albums that I’ve now unreleased. Those four albums all have a lot of songs on that I performed badly, so are now binned. Virtually all the songs I recorded at Ranscombe were done in one take. Maybe all of them, except Colonisers which I remember taking two. Despite the cull, it’s a process I stand by for both music and painting. Mass produce now, mass release tomorrow, edit later. The best part is, because the only people I’m aware are paying any attention are my friends, no one realises or cares. At last I have a solo studio album that stands up to the 2 out of 3 rule ones.

Speaking of 2 out of 3 rule, I’ve been watching an American TV show callled ‘My 600-lb life’ which documents the weight loss surgery application process for the morbidly obese. One of the background songs they use is extremely similar to ‘Toy Soldier’ and another is slightly less near-identical to ‘You Can’t Choose Your Friends’. Both 2 out of 3 rule songs. The Toy Soldier one is the EXACT SAME RIFF. Where’s my royalties cheque?

I’m still trying to understand the show. To get the surgery, you need to first demonstrate you can lose 30 pounds in a month by going on a strict diet and light exercise regime. But, if you can lose 30 pounds a month without the surgery then, presumably, you don’t need it.

You have to prove your commitment first by losing 30 pounds beforehand because, apparently, you need that level of commitment after the surgery to avoid putting the weight back on. It makes no sense.

The only way to get the surgery is to first demonstrate that you don’t need it.

After the surgery, you have to carry on doing what you were successfully doing before the surgery, to achieve the same result you were already achieving before the surgery.

I can’t believe people are spending theirs and their families life savings on major life-threatening surgery for what, can only be at best, a mild appetite suppressant. I’ll have to watch more episodes to figure it out. If I hear any more of my songs, they’ll be hearing from my lawyer.
