Hi & thank you for visiting the site.
BEATIN HEARTS (LP black vinyl, 1982) will be accompanied by a 7 inch EP: 4 new songs recorded in NZ and the USA. A Beatin Hearts Rerelease Tour is happening in October. I'll be playing with musicians all over my country, New Zealand.
Octagon Poetry Collective invited me to read recently Tuesday May 24th. Saxophonist Stuart Porter joined in for Elegy for Alan Brunton. There is talk of another music-poetry event, in October, with David Eggleton, Ian Loughran, Ian Chapman and Lynely Edmeades.
