Kung Fu City

You have to eat the zinger the

nasty fat tower zinger.

Sat at a table next to the stained dirty wall.

It must be done.

Those shiny lights red and white

the zinger tower is inside.

Its gonna be in my insides.

Get off the bus and get in there.

Do it!!

I'm just a snotbag

divvy up the sandbags,

rest against the cold mud,

shit and blood and rot and rats.

skulls and chicken feathers,

hell and filth,

happy christmas.


a lighthouse beaming

white rocks and more cold water

creak and sneeze

swollen fists

Spanish Eddie

purple turkey


turn on the lights

dazzled and nausea

towels on the bathroom floor

radiator death

stray pube finger twitch

office party



yes a fetid interweaving of

ageing genes

wrinkled skin

and tooth decay

bad breath

food and wine

down the gullet

and out the arse

togetherness once a year


okay I said I'd wait 'til

the cold was gone

I lied.

eat it or piss off

swollen neck

Ugh I've got some nasty

head cold swollen neck thing.

I'm not ill enough to stay in bed,

but I am not well enough to feel okay.

If you expect me to write anything half decent

you can forget it,

I'll be back when I am better.

from the cybercafe


Just moved house, so the faithful

grey box is banged up, out of sight

for a time.

Saturday was one long hard slog and

I was virtually horizontal by the end of it!!

Still, I had ticket to go and experience

Jeff Mills under some railway arches in London Bridge.

So I dragged my sorry arse down there.

I was a total wreck until Jeff took to the decks

and worked his magic. This guy is the most powerful

purveyor on sonic experimentation.

And I don't mean a poxy little experiment where you make a testtube

go fizz. I mean an alchemical spell where you take a crowd of

people and you give them the facility to change themselves into

all powerful magicians for the night. It is exhilarating, but also

frightening. The powers that can be unleashed must be treated with respect.

This is not for the feinthearted.

Still I was taken FULLY by the evenings proceedings.

Practising your tai chi whilst mills is on

the decks and after smoking something potent from a

fellow crowd member, can have very unforseen results.

I had to hold back and restrain myself, cause I was

very close to going too far, breaking through several

psychic/physical barriers

that I am really not properly prepared for.

Mills played a ten second excerpt from CASA and

I knew it was time to go home.

I'll leave it at that.

Except I'll just add these

three magic moves I learnt

Number 1.

Invisible man.

Number 2.

One leg out then in.

Number 3.

Hot thumb disc.

the sound of tulips part two

here is the full audio from an experiment
I carried out in summer 2002, following
up from a webpage I created in 2000 called
the sound of tulips.
Both experiments involved recording voice
into a microphone with absolutely no
idea of what was to be said prior to
starting. Spontaneous.
I think the results are mildly interesting,
and maybe revealing.
On occasion I use language that may be offensive
to some, so please don't listen if you are of the
sensitive kind.

Here they are in no particular order
apart from alphabetical...
