That’s right, I play music… at least I try my best to. I play guitar and spent 5 or 6 years touring the country, first with Kody, then with Helen Keller. I say 5 or 6 years as everything is a bit hazy during that time but I kind of vaguely remember having fun. Here are some examples of what we did…
Kody – London, Eng
Kody – Charlotte Knows
Helen Keller – Tel Aviv
Gareth Icke – It get’s worse at Night I’m not on the recording of this, but I am in the video which we put together with Jason Mark Harris
Gareth Icke – Remember Who You Are
Gareth Icke at Wembley Arena – We performed at Wembley Arena, which was nice…
I also write a few of my own songs although I happily admin, I don’t really have ‘a sound’, I just play what I want, for fun. Some of them I record or video and here they are:
Cosa Nostra - Kev helped me film this, one take, first take… job done. This was a valentine’s day present for Josie.
A valentines song for Josie - Romantic you say? Apparently so… as this is the valentine’s day song for Josie the year before.
Bigger Man – I recorded this song after a 7ft tall man (I’m 5ft 8 inches) started on me one night. It’s meant to have a double chorus key change at the end… but when I went to do the vocals, the microphone broke (…. I couldn’t hit the notes :( …). Instead, I used Kev’s old BC Rich that hadn’t had a string change in 8 and a half years to put down a solo (2nd mistake). My 3rd mistake came in not remembering that I can’t play solos… Other than that, I’m happy with it.
Second Home - About 3 days into moving into a place in Exeter, I stuck a mic on and recorded this live… one take job but I like it.
It rains today… – It rained one day, so I locked myself away and did this… Can’t remember it now though.
Movember - I did ‘Movember‘ in 2010 and this song is about my moustache. This song was nominated for a Moscar.
Finding something to say – This was probably the first song I recorded on my own.
It’s all about this evening – This sums me up as a song writer, wrote this one afternoon in about 10 minutes. Recorded it, forgot it and never play it. Oh good….
