Slackers Release Debut EP "Full Frontal Slack"

3 piece rock band. Influences from Skunk Anansie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alabama Shakes.

My old mate Mucky Cherub/Beth Swain (who I used to be with in Bilamie) is in a new band called Slackers and on 18th March they released a new EP called "Full Frontal Slack".

Lonely Hearts was a track that we did in Bilamie - it's so cool to hear it in this new chilled format... I'm also loving the first track "I Want" too - especially the power and the attitude in the vocals.

Listen to the music and follow the Soundcloud page below:

'Your Art Is Imperfect' (NEW SONG from Fingerprints!)

Particle Zoo have uploaded an exclusive song from the new to stream online before the release date!

Your Art Is Imperfect

"Look at us all... Scrambling to meet our perfect partner, find our perfect job or have the perfect holiday.  How about painting the perfect picture or writing the perfect song?  Perfect just doesn't exist. And we need to stop imagining that it does (in spite of what the big American movies tell us).

With any piece of art, at some point you have to say 'it's finished' and move on. To just do what you can with what you feel in that moment.  After all, a song is like a snapshot of an artist at one moment in time. The next snapshot will be as different again."

'Your Art Is Imperfect' is the opening track on my new album ‘Fingerprints’, released on Monday 7th May 2018.

Your Art Is Imperfect (Lyrics)

Don’t stay where you’re tolerated
Go where you’re celebrated
If the sounds you hear are dull and dated
Create what you want created

Saw you in the zone, feel the deep connection
Buzzing all fours in the natural flow
Reaching for your own slice of perfection
Your Art is Imperfect; it's a beautiful show

They say ideas appear from nowhere
Vision and sound homebound from anywhere
You know the feeling like a spark inside you
Like a thread through a portal beside you

Saw you in the zone, feel the deep connection
Buzzing all force in the natural flow
Reaching for your own slice of perfection

Your Art is Imperfect; it's a beautiful show

Web Sheldon - Fingerprints LP

Web Sheldon - Fingerprints LP

7th May 2018
Particle Zoo Recordings

Genres: Pop/Electro/Industrial
Mastered at Dragonfly Studios, Bristol.

London based producer-songwriter Web Sheldon blends traditional singer-songwriting with high quality electronic production skills to create a sound that is visceral, exciting and deeply personal.

Enthusiastically supported by BBC Radio 6 Music, the first single from Fingerprints, IG-ID earned global airplay from Prague to Texas and was played twice in one weekend by an obviously impressed Tom Robinson.

The full album is an evocative mix of urban-electronic and street-folk addressing themes such as social decay, corporate greed, artistic expression and LGBTQ life.

Sometimes propulsive, uplifting and venal, others contemplative and lamenting, Fingerprints is a refined and bombastic soundtrack for modern living.

Released by:
Particle Zoo Recordings

Release date:
7 May 2018

℗ 2018, Particle Zoo Recordings

Madonna's "La Isla Bonita"

You remember this?

Madonn's "La Isla Bonita" from 1987.

On Fingerprints, I have recorded my own interpretation of it... Out on 7th May! 2 weeks to go!

MODERN SLAVES (New track online from Fingerprints album!)

Particle Zoo have put a new track up online from my forthcoming album "Fingerprints" (to be released worldwide 7th May).

Listen to the track below and read the story behind the song.

Modern Slaves 

Modern living is so deeply ingrained in our psyche, we're almost numb to the fact that we're chained to paying our rent, bills and taxes for the rest of our lives. We’re fooled into buying things we’re under the illusion we NEED, things that are designed to break after a few months so we go out again and buy another one. And we go to our jobs (which we are lucky to have!) to pay for all this, selling away time with our families in exchange for money to pay for it all.

If we manage to maintain this year in, year out, what is the price? A person who has retired after years of graft, who should be enjoying life but has a body that is quickly deteriorating from years of physical labour? A young mind crushed and disillusioned under the stresses of juggling some work hard/play hard idea they’ve been sold – and probably too tired on a daily basis to question any of it. Is this what we actually want from life?

If we keep it all up and make it through – we are the lucky ones. What happens to those who crack under the pressure? Do they lose their home…friends…families…life?

Modern Slaves (lyrics):

Life is hard
We are Modern Slaves
Chained to banks and cards
Life Is Hard

Life is hard
We’re in the gutter
We don’t see the stars
Life is hard

Oh remember back in the day
Our parents used to say ‘these are the best days of your lives’
And they weren’t far wrong
Don’t get me wrong
Adulting is more fun
But you gotta stay strong
You got to keep it together

Life is hard
We are Modern Slaves
Our nerves may be burnt, charred, scarred
But we are not in chains

We are not in chains
We are not in chains
We are not in chains

But what does that change?
