Transparent Radiation Blogspot

My blog where I write about my favourite music, art, literature etc

Started in June 2011.

SADLY LEFT DORMANT DUE TO BEING TOO BUSY AND TOO TIRED FROM THE 9 TO 5... there are some interesting things still there though.

M-Brooks Emporium

This link is to the ebay store where mine and other State records releases are available to purchase.

Official Website for my State records label mate Glenn Prangnell and his latest musical project Groovy Uncle and Suzi Chuck.

Glenn is also a film maker and has helped me make the promo videos for my third 45rpm single 'Time Will Tell' and 'The Problem With Me. Glenn has done many videos for himself and other bands which can all be viewed on Youtube.

The Higher State Fan Page on Facebook

The Higher State formed in 2004 and continuing to write and perform fantastic songs.

This is another group I play in and write songs for, I joined the group in Autumn 2011.

Flower Bomb Songs Blog!

A very supportive blogspot site by Colin Mason, which has helped me tremendously, by letting the world know about my 45's.

The site is a fantastic reference point for really cool unknown music (aswell as some which is known)

check it out!

Rock Around The Blog

Another really supportive music blog online, Rock Around the Blog has been helpful in spreading my music to people in Portugal and Spain.

A great source for all things current on the 60s revival scene musically.

Francisco who writes the blog has helped very much.

A cool website for music geeks!

On all of my recordings I have pretty much played a 1964 Futurama
De Luxe 2 guitar.

The website linked here is just a comprehensive view of the Futurama guitar range which were produced from the late 50s through to mid-60s.

I like how the heading states 'The World's Most Advanced Guitar'??

Most certainly not... but it is a pretty damn cool guitar and I really like the sounds it makes for me.

The Garage Punk Hideout

A good web resource for all things current and old relating to the garage scene. There are various forums and plenty of info.

Whole Lotta Shakin' Radio Show (WRUR-FM 88.5)

Whole Lotta Shakin' has been a radio show which from the very start has been highly supportive of my music and very helpful in bringing my name as a musician to many people on the East Coast of America

Mike Murray is the man responsible for this and a huge thank you goes his way from me.

The Fallen Leaves Official Website

I played Bass in this band during 2006 and left in February 2007.

The Fallen Leaves formed in 2004 by Rob Green and Rob Symmons who was the guitar player in the original line up of the greatly influencial and seminal punk band 'The Subway Sect'.

Big thanks to the all Disc-Jockey's who have spun my records particularly Bill Kelly with his 'Teenage Wasteland' Show.

I would also suggest you go and check out bands which are on the same labels as me and those who have had some involvement at The Sandgate Sound Studio, my own label or 13O'Clock.
