New album is out on Friday. Just very pleased that Ghost Box let me do another one. The Advisory Circle has become a huge part of my life since 2005 and just continues to grow. For all those that have stayed with the project since then (and those who have maybe just joined us), a very big thank you.
As always, head over to the Ghost Box Shop to pick up your copy.
Also, I did a mix for Radio Belbury to celebrate - you can find that here:

Applied Music Vol.2 - Plastics Today.
Release date: 19th January 2018. Available in all download formats from cafekaput.bandcamp.com
Concise, succinct and targeted material specially produced for the broadcast, refreshment and entertainment industries. Melody, rhythm and metre. Night circuits for the solar future.. Applied Music Vol.2 is the second in an occasional series of library-style albums from Café Kaput. Applied Music albums are organised into thematic selections and feature tracks chosen for their immediacy, simplicity of arrangement and distilled sense of mood.
Vol.2 - Plastics Today provides themes and underscores, in a contemporary idiom, suitable for the polymer industry.

Art direction and design by Ian Hodgson.

My new album with Jim Jupp of Belbury Poly (and John Foxx guesting on two songs) will be out on Ghost Box on November 3rd. We had a lot of fun with this record. As is the case with everyone I collaborate with, there are certain qualities, certain textures that only Jim could create; if you combine that with whatever it is that I do, you hopefully end up with something quite unique.
I think that’s about it, for my releases this year. There may possibly be a solo digital album on Cafe Kaput in December, if everything falls into place - if not, it’ll be a January 2018 thing. There will be another record in 2018, but I can’t talk about that yet.
For the time being, I’m just making a lot of music for the hell of it, none of it being worked towards any particular release - literally for the sake of creating and enjoying the process. Business as usual. We’ll see what happens.
