A Misspent Youth / Together We Will Wait Forever

Hey Cola-maniacs, it's time for a rare double track post!

Here are the two new things I rustled up for last week's fab London Grammash double album release, now available on Soundcloud for your listening pleasure and downloading.

A Misspent Youth

I've been listening to a bunch of synthwave and Outrun retro tracks recently, and if I ever get around to it, I may actually try and do some more - I love this music genre. So this came to me when looking to round out the album, as a euphemism for my wasted childhood in the 80s, imagining that I was some kind of computer geek hero who would get the girl by the end of the movie. Little did I know how life would play out. And W.O.P.R. is my homeboy.

Together We Will Wait Forever

Taking it back to one of the earliest instrumentals I used when fun-loving party tune maker Colatron became the heartbroken, doom-laden CLT you all know and love. Picture the lovely Hannah Reid if you will, in a smoke filled bar, propping up the grand piano as she sings for a love that will never go anywhere. Old-skool Colatron before he got his smile back. Ish.

Don't forget you can grab the entire double album also featuring my good buddies LeeDM101 and Fissunix over at

I may be retired, but keep 'em peeled. There may be more to follow

Much love,

Yes - I know I said I'd retired but that didn't actually mean that I had retired... not when I have the opportunity to put together something like THIS!

Collaborating with two of my heroes, the magnificent king of deep and thoughtful mash LeeDM101 and my beloved Partner in Mash, one half of Fissutron, the legendary Fissunix, here is our little tribute to one of my favourite bands out there right now - the gorgeously talented and sublime London Grammar

Two seperate albums in one downloadable ZIP, there's a little something for everyone with a splash of rock, pop, hip hop, reggae, downtempo, synthwave, acoustic, orchestral, chillstep, film score and much much more.
