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,
