  • All Was Numbered CD release. Available now.

    Until now my 2012 album 'All Was Numbered' has only available on download but it is at last also out as a CD on Peter Hook's Hacienda label with cover and booklet design by Chris McMinn and Jim Tetlow featuring full credits and lyrics and liner notes by Paul Morley. Paul's involvement comes about because of his asking me to write a song especially for his 2011 Southbank Meltdown Festival tribute show to Tony Wilson. The 'song' became 3 songs and then 7 and formed the material for this album. These songs use my era on Factory Records as their inspiration and they include my elergies for Tony Wilson and Section 25's Larry Cassidy. There are guest appearances by Mark 'Flash' Haynes, Chris Conway, David Dhonau, Camilla Kent (soon to be seen on 'The X Factor' 2014), Sally Barker (Runner up of BBC's 'The Voice'), John Butler (Diesel Park West), Mr Plow, Kenton Hall (ist), Gem, Dan White, Martha Bean and Adam Ellis who also engineered and co-produced the whole package with me. There is an additonal uncredited track, a 2014 radio edit for 'Now Is Then'. The album can be purchased on this site via Paypal, Bandcamp and as a download from Hacienda Records or iTunes.
