Piece Of Nonsense

Piece Of Nonsense

From The Diary Of A Musical Nobody. Chapter Four. A mixed bag of tunes and styles in an attempt to break away from the punk sound. There are a few surprising little jolts and sidesteps, although it s still mostly all major chords. It was a time which is now loosely labelled post-punk but which we saw as a breaking away by the Art School crowd, so we could be a bit sniffy about it.

 

 

 

 

Track listing:

1. Sweet Revenge
2. Second Nature
3. Don't Talk To Charlie
4. Last Hope
5. Graph Paper
6. I Wanna Collect
7. Ring Me Regardless

Innocence

Innocence

From The Diary Of A Musical Nobody. Chapter Three. It's 1978 but I'm still flying the old anarchy flag. Had decided on The Innocents for the band name at this point. Did a few of these songs live as The Pedestrians and Voice Toys too. Others only reached rehearsal stage. The original line up of The Innocents (who never made it out of Graham Proctor s dad s shed on Whitehill Industrial Estate) included Paul Reekie on bass who wrote the words to Cecily Plasticine which I rerecorded after his death. There were a couple more we wrote together which have disappeared into the myths of time. I remember we were trying to escape from the template punk sound (which we named The Drones style) by this point, as were a number of bands attempting to diversify/experiment.

1. Available
2. Grey Castle
3. Late

Macedonia

Macedonia

From The Diary Of A Musical Nobody. Chapter Two. A couple of these songs made it to rehearsal stage but I don t think any of them were ever played live. More buzzsaw action but also an attempt at the occasional poppy tune. I had definitely turned 18 at some point during these recordings, as one of the songs mentions drinking in the bastard Rothes Arms, watching all the bastard groups, playing all their fifteen million chords in their little bastard suits. Eat your heart out, Alexei Sayle.
