"I Hate Fonda 500" tribute record contribution

I went back into the studio with Joe and Mikey to record a track for the Fonda 500 tribute record I Hate Fonda 500.

It's a cover of Mattermathiques from their latest record I Heart Fonda 500 and I'm very pleased with the results. Our version is called Matt-O-Matic.

The album features some great remixes and re-imaginings by some great artists.

You can purchase the album (Digital/CD/Cassette) from here

Here's the video they made for my song:

(Lullaby) video

Here's the brilliant video for (Lullaby) made by the wonderful Nicholas Broten of Fonda 500!

To coincide with its release, did an interview with God Is In The TV Zine which is a pretty fun read - read it here.

It was also video of the day on Joyzine - check it out to find how Joyzine links Matt & Nick from many years ago.

Enyoy and keep spreading the word.


Thanks for a great 2018

Thanks so much to everybody that has listened to our music in 2018 - especially to all of you who bought the album.

Stairgazing may not have been sprawled across the end of year lists but it has picked up plenty of fans and great reviews over the year.

Here's one of our favourites by Travellers Tunes.

Keep listening, buying and spreading the word.

There's something exciting coming very soon...

Nightclubbing Video.

The video for Nightclubbing is out now. Made by Matt J Molson - the video follows Matt Edible & a bunch of revelers on a night out through the song. It's daft and it's fun.

Please share the video with as many people as you can.

We have also put together a collaborative Spotify playlist called Getting Ready For Nightclubbing. Add some songs to it that you associate with getting ready for and going out nightclubbing.

Be as cool or uncool as you like - Nobody's judging...
