About My Songs

The first song "Bound for Ukeland" is in response to a bulletin board posting about scratch recording gear. Over the years I've moved away from making songs simply and take months to 'produce' a track. I wanted the old feeling of song writing back, so I wrote and recorded this tribute to Ukeland.com in just one day. I used a Sony mic and recorded straight to minidisk, I then transferred it to my PC and mastered it to mp3. Thanks to Zathras for making it the Ukeland Theme song.

The Second Track "Harmony Dub" is an adaptation of a song by Jeff Reed and Charlie Thorley from the reggae band Skaville Train. It was originally called "Living in Harmony" and my version features a sample of Jeff singing from a live recording of the song. The song was never released, so I thought I would do a ukulele version. You may also recognise some of the ukulele riffs are the same as those used in the His Master's Ukulele Theme. The track is inspired by the cult TV series ‘The Prisoner’ and features references to number 6 and the episode ‘Living in Harmony’. My friend Jugs is playing the congas and I'm doing the rest. This track took months to make.

I make a lot of Dub reggae ukulele music so I should perhaps explain what this is. The Dub style was invented in the 1970's by producers like Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby who took already recorded reggae songs, took away most things from the mix and then used delays and effects to change the song into something completely different. I make this sort of music with the addition of ukuleles.

Be seeing you,

Nipper
