This is my "pop" album. Yet, it's not pop. But it's the most "pop" I'll ever be.
It's electronic. Yet it's Indie. And it's eclectic. And electric.

It was created on a Toshiba laptop using virtual midi instruments within BandLab's Cakewalk DAW as well as a few samples from the freesource that is the internet. All music, again, was written, produced and mastered by me and me alone. (A theme!)

Half of this album was written Before Covid; half During Covid, (Which is kind of irrelevant considering this album's anger and energy is directed at a more controlling influence that has permeated both periods: a nation destroying, soul crushing British Government. There is no anger more worthy than that against an oppressive authority that historically kills people - usually it's own - and systematically crusades for their hunger and poverty. We must end this white supremacist oligarchy - that goes by the name of the Conservative Party - if we are to grow as a people, a nation and an inclusive, global society.)

Anyway, sit back, chill for a little, let me take you somewhere....
