New International Electromatics track uploaded!

A heartwarming tale of love in a beautiful world.  Not really.  Its the kind of EBM dystopia you would expect from International Electromatics!


In Art We Trust

The writers’ group I’m part of, the Clockhouse London Writers are doing a reading as part of the ‘In Art We Trust’ event at the Bull Theatre in High Barnet, on 14th July. We’re on at 5:00pm. Looks like a fantastic event with live art and performances.

Another 100 Horrors has just been released, including my own flash fiction, ‘Winter of Abomination’.  Here’s a link:

It’s also going to be released as an e-book, so I’ll post those details when they’re available.

A manikin the colour and texture of rust sits on the porch roof, head bowed. The concrete block house stands alone, in an island between three roads, overlooked by offices. The windows are covered by metal panels, as if the house is repossessed, rather than a memorial, a gravestone to the poet Thomas Chatterton.

Next time I see the house, the manikin has moved, now his eyeless and featureless face turned towards the main road. The traffic stands still, fuming,

The next day, he sits on a flaking green metal chair in the paved front garden, head in his hands. “Paint me an angel with wings, and a trumpet, to trumpet my name over the world,” he says. The stone house behind him is silent. The road is solid with city commuter cars and buses ticking over. The offices are lost in their dreams of profit, vacated by all but the most committed (this is Friday). And me? I’m no angel and I have my own story.
