Skylon was my 'difficult third album'. 

I'd already made Hallucinogen In Dub and Blumenkraft and they had both been received very positively, but I was unsure where to go next. Should I just do more of the same or was it time to branch out and do something different? Should I consider the expectations of my audience and try to give them what they want, or shoot off on a tangent and do something unexpected?

I was beset with indecision, totally overthinking it, and before I knew it five years had slipped past. During that time I met my wife, got married, became a dad and went to live in Spain. 

In the background, however, I was constantly making music. A song here, a song there, some of which took years between starting and finishing. Eventually I realised that, regardless of my intentions, the music was going to take its own course. I had to be there to turn the knobs and push the buttons, but it pretty much wrote itself. 

Exasperated, Simon Holtom, the label manager at Twisted, travelled four hours from London to my house out in the sticks and demanded to hear what I had done so far. I played him seven tracks. He nodded approvingly but said I needed one more song to make it an album. 

There was one more, I said, but it was probably too soft and fluffy for Twisted. He insisted I play it to him anyway, so I did. That song was 'The Queen Of All Everything". The album was finished. 

So, here we are, ten years later, and after many requests, it's time to press Skylon onto vinyl. 

As usual the mastering will be performed by Kevin Metcalfe and you can get your name on the sleeve and on the limited edition poster that comes with the top tier. 

Happy pledging. :0)

Risks and challenges

There is a risk that the global birth rate will shoot up once people hear "The Queen Of All Everything " on top-quality vinyl.
