New Album Out-"The only way out is in" buy below

I'm a guitarist and songwriter. I've played for people like Snog, Damo Suzuki (Can), Grace Jones, The Boredoms, Jane Badler and for Thai acts like the Outsiders and Smile Buffalo. I'm inspired by 70s glam rock, Kraut Rock and Electronica. I love organic sounds but and I also enjoy demolishing them! 
​My agenda is bouncing my guitar off lyrics. In fact, lyrics dictate where my guitar wants to go. JJ

The Only Way Out Is In 

The Only way out is in- is a concept album, part truth part fiction about a persons journey across continents to escape a broken heart and a troubled head.
Waking up on a seemingly perfect morning, his day disintegrates with the breakup of a long term love affair. He decides to leave his life in Australia and begin a journey to London to retrace his past. Stopping off in Thailand, he finds himself in Bangkok and is immediately lured in to its strangeness, freedom and complex culture. He looses himself as he indulges in everything offered to him- the good and the bad. After a nasty incident with a gun runner he decides its time to leave ' the city of angels'.
Now even more distanced from the life he has known before, he arrives in London at the end of an english summer. Here he finds a sense of connection with his childhood dreams. With that comes sleep and a sense of peace for the first time in months.
As weeks pass and with summer now fading he still finds himself still thinking about Bangkok . And he can't get out of his mind the face of someone he met the last week he was there...

My Gear 

Those early 70s glam rock guitar sounds of Mick Ronson, Fripp, Phil Manzanera and Marc Bolan get my attention, but i also use modern effects such as bit crunchers, adrenalinn seq rhythm filters and glitch etc.
Love delay too- nothing like those old dub records or even a bit o goth echo like the band Bahaus for inspiration! Also dig the Hindi slide of Vishwa Bhatt. Throw that in with some psychedelia …and thats where my heads at.

Main amp squeeze is an Egnater m4. Modules are Vampower, Egnater5,Salv Hiwatt, Orange OD120 and EGDDeluxe.
Kemper clones my Marshall 200 watt Marshall Major pig and Vampower amps as well as HH amps and different Fender Deluxes.
Pedals- DAM Mk1 fuzz serial 001, DAM Holy Roller, DAM Buzzaround, Hexy Revolver, Eventide H9, Montreal Assembly Count to Five and the incredible Electro Harmonix Micro synth.
Computer wise- MainStage runs -Guitar rig, Andrenalinn and S Gear .
Guitars-les pauls, tele hybrid and even a gibson robot guitar.
