This is the second volume in the Morningstar series, to which I have added a bonus track which will possibly need a CD of its own if you are going to burn this music to CD. I have provided an extra disc image for this purpose. The themes and inspiration for this music continues from the first volume, in that I explore various ideas of my own take on the reality of the world around us and the conspiracy theories arising from that subject. On top of that I have layered my own Gnostic beliefs. Yes, business as usual for...

I wanted to begin a project inspired by my ongoing interest in Gnosticism and Morningstar, of which this is part one, is that project. The name 'Morningstar' refers to the morning and evening star, mostly known as the planet Venus, which after the sun is the brightest object in the sky. 'Dawntreader' is another of its names, used by C S Lewis as one of the titles in his Narnia series. Strangely enough it is associated with both Jesus and Lucifer. Take your pick! Gnostics consider them to be one and the same anyway, and indeed, the final...

Trips to the Great Smoke (London) are always interesting and amusing. Today we were on our way to the Temple Church to book tickets for an evening concert. The church itself, which featured in the film the Da Vince Code, would, in a few weeks time, be decked out in Gothic style for a showing of the original Nosferatu silent film to which a classical organist was going to improvise. All in candlelight! We were of course caught up with the commuter rush, or to use a Peter Gabriel phrase, the "Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging". on their way to...

Foxhalt Marsh is an extensive area of marshland, quite treacherous if you don't know the paths, east of the village which gives it its name. People have lost, and have taken, their own lives in this place. A brass plaque in the church testifies to the fact. The marsh is a haunted place. Indeed, the marsh begins where the old graveyard of St Marys ends, where part of the graveyard has fallen into the marsh and the stones and statues can be seen protruding from the water. It is an obviously damp place, frequented by mists, marsh lights, and...

"We Are Nightingales, Caught in a Maelstrom of Chaos" If you can speak in the tongue of Nightingales you will be able to converse with Angelic powers and Serpents, the present rulers of this world, or so they say. They are the children of the Anunnaki, the unseen movers in the political and religious world. People have given them many names. The Dracon or the Puzzle Masters are two of them. The question is, in an age when our so called leaders seem to be following an agenda other than serving the best interest of the people, who can you...

In the distant and very murky past I did a cassette by this name. Actually, I had almost forgotten, it was Dave Law who reminded me. But I always liked the title so I reused it for this CD. The music is completely unrelated to the cassette version even though I retained the theme of environmental pollution. So,yes, just what the music scene needs, another artist banging on about the state of the environment. But, speaking for myself, we need to be occasionally reminded that the problems we have now are not going to go away. The quote I have...

Occasionally I have a good idea.I thought to myself, what would happen if I was to write a story that was a combination of fantasy, conspiracy theory and esoteric religious belief, bordering on shamanism? I told a friend about it. "Er, have you checked out any of the more wierd websites, Jim. I think you'll find that you are in good company with a load of nutters." And with that he departed and I have'nt seen him since. Friends eh! I still thought it was a good idea so I came up with a story complete with characters, some of...

During the early nineties I wrote a lot of music inspired by J.R.R.Tolkien. Plenty of other artists had already done the same thing, Bo Hanson has still, for me at any rate, produced the best work on that theme, so I thought I would have a go. I released three cassettes of material, "Where Shadows Lie", "King of the Golden Hall" and "Uruk Hai". Queen of the Golden Wood was an album primarily about Galadriel the "Shining One". I never got round to releasing it and as the music was recorded as nothing more than midi-files it was mostly lost....
