hello chaps!

a whole heap of news for you this time round.

indietracks: first up, i’m delighted to be playing indietracks festival this coming weekend. i’ll be on the church stage at2.20pm on saturday 30th july. if you come and see me play, one of my glamorous assistants will give you a free cd! you can have a free copy of the basic cd version of respect on the door. all my stuff will be on sale at the merch stall, but if you want to get a freebie, you have to come to the show.

new single: my next single will be out very soon on where it’s at is where you are records. this download single closes the loop on my respect project, which had me covering a whole heap of songs from the 1980s and already incorporated 12 monthly downloads in 2010, an album and single released at midnight 1st january 2011. there was a competition to choose two 1980s songs for me to cover for the second single. luckily, the winners, dunc vernon and tim chamberlain, showed excellent taste and you’ll be able to download my versions of “flowers” by galaxie 500 and “pristine christine” by the sea urchins. nice!

you know, for kids!: i’ve just recorded a new song for the pop! for kids project. it’s a great idea, getting artists to make music for kids that doesn’t suck – a must for culturally aware parents everywhere. you can download for free my version ofpure imagination, originally sung by the great gene wilder in my all-time favourite film, willy wonka & the chocolate factory.

website update: i’ve finally got round to adding a shopping cart to the music page. this makes it much easier for you to order multiple items. when you click on “add to cart” a shopping cart is automatically generated. you can review and amend your purchases before you buy. p.s. you don’t need a paypal account to buy anything.

i’ve uploaded the complete works of krafla to soundcloud. you can download all the tracks for free! for those of you who don’t know…

“lovely electronica.” huw stephensbbc radio 1.

krafla was steve hough (einstellungcable regimegodfleshgrover) and simon fox. extending the experimental tendencies of grover, krafla developed into a long-term project, mixing live instruments and electronica. a debut 7″ single on static caravan records was followed by an e.p. release on bearos records. krafla add layers of depth and instrumentation to fragile song structures and delicate melodies.
