Making this album took way longer time than expected, all songs were finished by March 2016, but endless problems occurred all the time once the post production started. Besides all problems, it's been fun experimenting with "new styles".

Jeremy Krull: The Mezzabarba MZero Overdrive - awesome chunky riff city

Here's a short but sweet (and pretty heavy) runthrough of Mezzabarba's flagship amplifier, the MZero Overdrive. Absolutely exquisite piece.

Special thanks, like really special thanks, to Trey Xavier for being present during the solo and melody filming (which was tracked 100% live by the way) to humor me while I got really frustrated and swore and said horrible things take after take. He also started and stopped the recording of the video during this part.

Jason Becker: Swiss Picks - The Becker Bleu Cheese!!

Swiss Picks

NEW for '17! The Becker Bleu Cheese!! A Tribute Signature pick created to celebrate the legacy of Jason Becker!! A legend, an inspiration, and a brilliant musician that has influenced so many of us, and continues to do so. In the rare occasion of a Signature pick, there has to be something unique that separates it from the pack. The Becker Bleu Cheese is comprised of Acetyl (Why give it a made up, goofy name? :)), which is a full sounding, well rounded tone most associated with Tortoise. We've beefed it up a bit and it's rougher texture gives a better hold. 

In choosing the color, it had to exude a positiveness and hope for Jason and his family, who have endured more hardship than anyone should ever have to go through. It's an honor to not only release this in Jason's name, but also to help the Becker family with future sales of his pick, which will cover the entire Swiss Picks line. To learn more about Jason, his music, and his struggle with ALS, please visit and the Jason Becker documentary "Not Dead Yet'. — with Jason Becker, Terry Rasor and Kiesel Guitars Carvin Guitars.

Nick Andrew: Backseat Bicycle - extraordinary performance from the man who lives in a car.

There's a long story behind this video. I'll leave the details until I write book three (Backseat Bedroom is book one. I'm working on book two and living book three).
In August 2016, after living in a car for ten years I decided to make the move to living in a van. I then bought a second hand Vauxall Viagra, which was christened Geoff (I've since found out that his real name is Wolf!).
At the beginning of 0ctober the cambelt broke, leaving me totally destitute in so many ways. I had no money to get it fixed, no where to live, but still had to keep working and gigging. This took me to the bottom of life's barrel.

I remembered I had a bike at a friends house in Barnet (thank you Martin) and started cycling everywhere. On one journey my moods went up and down with the topography. Hopeful one minute then depressed the next. This is represented in the bulk of the piece.
I then received a phone call from my mate, Richard (Doc) Spooner (Philipp Fankhauser band). He told me that he'd put together a donation page to help with the cost of my repairs.
Sometimes I am a stupid eejit and don't naturally accept help. You can hear the inner conflict with my pride.
I eventually realise that there is a way out, which prompts the counterpoint section. That then leads to the support and unity in the last section, then we all fall over in exhastion!

I am amazed and humbled at the generosity that people showed.
I can never repay the debt, but I dedicate this wee tune with the greatest of thanks to all that donated or helped me in my darkest hours.

A Huge thanks to;

The Hooky Doughnuts;
