Breaking Out

I love gangster movies, especially the classic old black and white ones like James Cagney in the movie “White Heat” or “Public Enemy” have something that the modern gangster movies don’t.

Have You No Shame

I see people here in England getting passionate about how England is in the wrong for invading Iraq, having troops in Afghanistan and some of these people seem to support become terrorists themselves in what they see as a justified cause.

Then on the news they were speaking about the hand over … Continue reading

404: HYPE

Hype was written after gaining the attention of Rupert Hine and his Manager Geof Jukes. It was a very exciting and creative period. The songs to look out for on this collection are “Here Comes The Night,” a song written about vampires or maybe just people who only live for the night. “Killers In The Dark” is a song about … Continue reading
