This is a compendium of the first three collections of work that I compiled between 2007 and 2010.
Four of the songs have been performed live quite a few times. Touching the Sun, The Model Aircraft Museum, Tell The Truth and Mary Will Come Back To You (my great white whale song. I quest to perfect it and hopefully you will find it on a second Bandcamp release if this one does not get pelted with too many metaphorical pieces of rotten fruit).
You can see one such performance at the Macbeth pub, on my Paul Wady YouTube. I even made a video for Touching The Sun. (I never dreamed I would ever actually do anything like that for a song of mine).
I have waited all these years to release the material because I felt they needed stronger mixing and presence. Then my friend Cos Chapman of The Rude Mechanicals band, worked his magic by attenuating them all to be brighter and clearer and...wonderful. Thank you Cos.
Please read the sleeve notes PDF for all the knowledge of what, how and why. Every single song relates to my experience, and that of others, of being neurodiverse. These are 100% Aspie songs.
Thank you very much,
South East London

All instruments played by myself. I did the lot on my own. (The truth is I am not a musician at all. I go on a sense of the voices of the machines first and some notes to accommodate them thereafter).
All music remixed by Cos Chapman, of the Rude Mechanicals and his own wonderful works. www.coschapman.com#about
All the images were taken by me and were in no way altered save being cropped and maybe made a little brighter. Usually not.
All text by myself as well.
Moog Voyager Rack unit with Alesis Midiverb 3. Virus TI Polar I. Akai MPC 1000 sequencer. Hotpoint Washing machine in the background of our old kitchen, on Binary. It really worked.
