Just “Stuff” and Music

This Page merely provides a “landing page” any material, like songs, cover designs and so on, that need a website address for a link (rather than just attaching something to  a post). If you’ve stumbled across here without following a link I’ve posted elsewhere, try starting here instead.

Here’s the latest song I’m sharing. It’s got an interesting (for our family) history.

It’s a recording session that happened back in 2002 with my late brother Stephen, who came over to WA for a business trip (I think) and, of course, came down to the southwest to visit myself and Lisa. No surprise, we ended up in my (then) fairly rudimentary recording studio and I insisted on Stephen recording something with the intent that he do almost everything. This is what we did, and I’m certain it’s not original, but I can’t tell you who we pinched it from. A lot of beer and scotch was involved.

Oddly, since Stephen played bass for years in bands, he asked me to play the bass here. I also programmed the drums (which I’ve replaced now with a more up-to-date software) and I also updated the strings and synth.

Otherwise, Stephen plays all guitars and sings all the vocals. It’s a spin-out to hear his voice again after twenty years.

My acknowledgement and thanks go to whoever wrote this song, if you ever hear this …

  1. Read your four horror novels , I have to admit I got them from from a discount store. Absolutely enjoyed them as good as Graham Masterton and Dean Koontz at their best.

    1. Thanks Andy, great to hear! If you’re into ebooks at all I’ve a “collection” of four stories (they’re by no means short!) in an ebook called “Ghost Tales, Stories of the Dead Among Us”. You can buy it at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords. In the meantime all my books you’ve read already have recently been signed to Momentum Publishers, the (Aust) digital arm of Pan Macmillan, so they get another breath of life!
      Thanks again, Graeme.

  2. Wow. I was so surprised when Bronte’s voice started. It sounded far more mature than from a 15 or 16 year old. There is a heap to like about this song. The sparse piano works a treat, the hurried singing of “I guess I’ll take the blame” adds a really nice dynamic, the vocal harmonies are gorgeous, the overall sparse arrangement works a treat. Really nice, quite sophisticated in it’s implicity. Good work, Bronte and Graeme!

  3. As I said at the time ,she has “ something” , hope she keeps going and keeps on the “ keyboards “ , as that would help give a n edge over playing a guitar , set her apart and that combined with her talent , well ———hope to hear more from her 👍
