about

I am going to try to create, record and upload a new track every day for a year, starting April 2013.

My plan is to:
1) Produce a variety of material – alternative, ambient, pop, rock, reggae, acoustic, soundtrack, experimental;
2) Use a range of different creative techniques;
3) Be original;
4) Communicate ideas and feelings;
5) Surprise myself;
6) Have fun.

After the year has passed I will stop making music The music I have made will remain, but I will be elsewhere.

I hope you enjoy the sounds...

about

bushytunes Christmas Island

Once upon a time there was a crazy idea: to create, record and upload a musical track every day for a year. And the idea floated round and round the planet, looking for a place to call home. After a long time of searching and wishing and watching, the idea chose to make a nest in the brain of a bushy fellow, coming to his aid and guiding him out of the doldrums, back to a magical pathway... ... more

Track Name: bag of sin
Gather round, would-be sinners
It’s time to have a party
Let’s kick off with

Lust
Oh, good one, intense desire
You can do it til you bust
And you’ll end up in the fires of hell
Oh well, blown around forever
In the hurricane-like winds
That’s what’s in store for you

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Don’t be shy...

Then we have Gluttony and Greed
Over indulge and have more than you need
Even when others don’t have enough
Well, it’s not your fault - life is tough

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!

Now, here’s Pride
Excessive love of self
Because you know that you’re better
Than everybody else
Have contempt for the neighbours
They’re a bunch of fools
Pride is the one that comes before a fall

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!

Envy...
The desire to deprive others of their things
‘Ooh, look what he’s got – I want it’.
Envy.
It’s rough - hatred, anger , rage
Sewn into the tapestry of every age
One left – that one’s Sloth
And I can’t be bothered to tell you about it

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!
Put your hand in the Bag of Sin!

Bag of Sin!

Track Name: same old bullet in the firing line
My dad, he is the leader of the squad
That means he’s close to God

My dad gives everybody their shells
He thinks he does it so well

Same old bullet in the firing line
Same old bullet in the firing line
Same old bullet in the firing line
Same old bullet in the firing line

He is mistaken
He is mistaken
He is mistaken

Same old bullet in the firing line...

Dad always gives me blanks
And for this action he wants thanks

Same old bullet in the firing line...

I wanna know how it feels
To put a good man down

He is mistaken

Same old bullet in the firing line...

Daddy thinks that I should give him thanks
Because Daddy always makes sure I get a blank

Same old bullet in the firing line...

One day, daddy, give me a live one
Let me shoot a man, let me have some fun

Same old bullet in the firing line...

I wanna know how it feels
To put a good man down

(Same old bullet in the firing line...)

I wanna know how it feels
To put a good man down

I wanna know how it feels
To put a good man down

I wanna know how it feels
To put a good man down

Track Name: me i sit at the back of the bus
It doesn’t seem that long ago but it was two years
I can tell you because I keep a diary
And I checked it today
Seems like it could have been last week
I don’t want to get in a bad mood again
I don’t want to be in a sad mood again

So me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think about you and me
Me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think of how it used to be

Still don’t know quite what went wrong
You never really told me that part
I think it had a lot to do with the new boy in town
That one with the car and the really nice shoes
And you said, “he’s got a car and really nice shoes”
And I thought: you’ve never talked about shoes before

So me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think about you and me
Me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think of how it used to be

I know it’s over, but I don’t know
I don’t know, I’ve got this feeling

So me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think about you and me
Me I sit at the back of the bus
And I think of how it used to be...

Track Name: secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies

When granddad died we all were sad
We loved him, he was a character
But then we had dug around
And found out about the life he had
Full of secrets and lies

Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies

Found out about his women
Around the globe
At least a dozen children
God knows how many we couldn’t find

Swiss bank accounts
No combination to his safe
And threatening phone calls
From men with accents
Asking about shipments
I thought granddad was
Just a character

Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies
Secrets and lies

Don’t tell anybody ‘bout your secrets and lies...

Secrets and lies...
Track Name: when they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance

By the light of a harvest moon

Save the last dance for me?

Until the seas run dry

Beyond the fingers of love

Behind the moon

Rest by the stream before you dance

Rest by the stream before you dance

Rest by the stream before you...

DANCE

When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance

The owl, the cat, the boat
The light of the moon

When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance
When they come for you, dance
