The explosion of stuff

March 26, 2014


…and suddenly you look around and realise that there is so much stuff going on that you’ve almost no time to tell people about it. So, to rectify that, here’s a  rundown of what’s happening with the music and the writing and a few other bits and bobs. De Saw and Finkle have had a busy […]

Enigmatic noodlers

February 9, 2013


A wee interview has just gone live with Murnie on the Last Year’s Girl blog.  Lisa-Marie, who runs the blog, has wide and eclectic tastes, and the whole blog is well worth sticking on your feed reader. She calls us “enigmatic noodlers”. Yes, hands up, we noodle. And the enigmatic bit probably comes from the fact […]

Score card 2012

January 8, 2013


Okay, so it’s January, which means, as I sorta promised last year, it’s time to see how I got on with my rather ambitious goals for 2012. In summary I hoped to: Novels: Finish Queen Of Clouds and have started The Poisoner’s Road Shorts: Write and publish 10 short stories Band: Release 2 or 3 […]

Crackle and buzz

January 5, 2013


So the other day Murnie released our new ep, Crackle. We’re a wee band, and just like thousands of other wee bands out there it’s both inexpensive and easy for us to record our music and make it available to (theoretically) anyone who wants to hear it. What’s difficult sometimes though is getting feedback. Any […]

It’s the end of the year, but there’s just enough time to squeeze in a brand new Murnie ep. Our second release of the year has taken a bit longer than expected to come to fruition because…life. Anyway we hope you enjoy it. And for those who like these sorts of things, here’s a few […]

Feeding the song book

December 21, 2012


On Hogmanay, wur band releases its second ep of the year and its third in a little over 15 months. As has become my tradition, I’ll blog about the songs on Crackle on release day, but what’s interesting (to me at least) is that this leaves us with only four songs left from the original […]

Putting in good words

April 16, 2012


Wur band’s new ep has just had its first review. It’s from the wise and venerable music blogger, Bluesbunny, and very nice it is too. And buried in there near the end is a nice little comparison about the style of our lyrics, which pleases me no-end. I’ve been a lyric writer since my teens, […]

Songs out of Stuff competition!

April 13, 2012


If you’ve been following my band, Murnie, for a while (c’mon, we’re getting on for NINE years, you must have stumbled across…no? Oh well) you’ll know we have a longstanding thing (no, madam, titter ye not, etc) about making up songs out of stuff people send us. That’s right, Stuff. Bits and pieces, odds and […]

Smiles and Sunday Mouths

March 26, 2012


I’m wrote this, appropriately enough, on a Sunday morning in March. A stunning day and, once I was done, I went out for leisurely donner down Great Western Road. Which is exactly what Sundays are for. The reason for the post is to properly announce and celebrate the newest Murnie release: the sundaymouth ep. As we did […]

Open mouth, prepare to speak

March 23, 2012


Really pleased to say that the new murnie ep is now available for pre-order over on Bandcamp. This one is called sundaymouth, it has four tracks and I’ll be posting in more detail about it over the weekend, but for now you can hop on over there if you like and pre-order the album by pledging anything […]
