I want a lover
I want someone I can reward
I want a Doberman
I want to praise the lord
I want a big house
I want a holiday
I want my friends to say ‘wow’
When I shut down this masquerade
I want true love
I want someone to control
I want clean water
I want you to do as you’re told
I want enlightenment
I want ménage à trois
I want a clitoris
I want to save the world
I want to be an upstanding citizen
New demo out today...
Guitar spring clean...
I'm currently writing and recording songs for a new album. It's called Non-Les Nabis, don't ask me what it means. It's a low budget, lo-fi, home recording. You'll be able to buy it online at Nomaster Studios when it's done and it'll be on all streaming platforms to keep everyone happy. So far the songs are sounding similar to the self-titled compilation I released in 2015, but they're way better and much, much catchier and they have more sophisticated, thoughtful and insightful lyrics. With songs so great I'm assuming I'm going to make a ton of cash $$$. Hopefully I'll still be able to sidestep the whole fame thing, I don't want my 15 minutes...
I have a portrait from the CERES collection in this group exhibition at Brunswick Street Gallery. Went to the opening last week - there's some great works on display. Check it out if you can. It's on until 11th August...
The finalists for the Archibald were announced yesterday, I didn’t make the cut but enjoyed the process, thanks Glenn Barkley and Brian...

I played in Wollongong band FugG from 1994 to 1999. We used to get dressed up in silly outfits. We weren't sure what to call our music, most of the time we thought we were punk. We nearly hit the big time, even had songs played on radio and TV. That was a long time ago. Recordings from 1997-98 now on Nomaster Studios Youtube channel. Keeping the dream alive...
