A collection of some of the music I have written and / or performed
This is a song I wrote for the closing titles of a short film called Dirty Dave in 1995, a black comedy set in a supermarket. The film was shot in a spaghetti western style. It was originally sung by Jackie Clarke. I cannot find the original master, I think it is still with the film producer, I recorded this version the other day and changed the lyrics, a little, putting a pining boys perspective on it.
This is a song I wrote when I was 16. I recorded this version recently as it seems the same political sentiment of the get rich quick through investment is again similar to when I wrote this 34 years ago. I stayed true to the original Pink Floyd influence I had when I wrote it.
A track I created in 2000 with vocal support from Janis Joplin.

I wrote this song in 1989 and use to play it in Wellington band Bump'n Ugly. I recorded this version recently and used some audio of the late Arthur Tauhore in the extended intro. Arthur was the lead singer in Bump'n Ugly who sadly died of Aids in November 1993.
