Treat Yourself and buy the Babylon 5 Complete Universe, and be prepared to forget about the rest of the World for at least four weeks. The soundtrack is by ex Tangerine Dream man Chris Franke. Yes I am a Fan! I reckon this is one of the best sci-fi series of all time. I think what I found inspiring about it was the sense of depth to the storyline. There are obvious influences, as unlikely as it seems, from The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein and as anyone who knows me well enough, I am a fan of...

This fast paced CD was originally intended as a triple release but the individual Cd's sounded better on their own so the whole project was repackaged into Vols 1and 2. There is an underlying darkness to this CD which suits the title. Hecate. Pronounced Heck-at-tay. Hecate a Greek goddess of the Underworld who was worshiped in remote locations where three roads meet and still is if you know the right/wrong people. Like most pagan deities she received a bad press from the Christian church hence her character assassination by Shakespeare in Macbeth. When I came to write the Foxhalt Edge...

Hecate Vol 2-Under a Different Sky. This not so much a follow up as part of the same project. In regards to musical style and source of inspiration, everything I have written about Vol 1 applies to this CD. I had great fun with the concept which is reflected in the amount of material that came out of it.

The following is a review of this CD by SMD

A slow tinkling melody rises above a hot steamy landscape. Then suddenly, in comes a surging rhythm and organ combination. We momentarily revisit the opening realms, only for the rhythmic barrage to...

In the Deep Places of the World was inspired by a few of the darker themes within the writing of J.R.R Tolkien. It is easy to focus on the light and beauty of his works and forget the 'Shadow' growing in the east. Light and dark are bound together and indeed there is a little of each in the other. I have attempted in this fast paced album to restore some of that balance.

Foxhalt Edge is a mysterious, and in the winter sometimes completely isolated, village perched atop a plateau on the Herefordshire Welsh border. No one knows exactly why, but it does not appear on any but the most ancient of maps. It could easily pass through time unnoticed except for one rather important detail. This is where the Transfiguration of the World will begin. Or perhaps, in an alternative Universe, it already has begun. Maybe, in a multiverse of possibilities, it has happened an infinite number of times. This album, along with several others, was inspired by the story of the...

This is the fourth CD Jim produced under the name of The Ancient Technology Cult and the second in a series on the subject of heretical cults and beliefs. It is a fast paced CD, shifting easily between melodic, and darkly moody sections that hold your attention and don't let go, even when the CD is over.

The following are two reviews of the CD you may find useful.

A crashing start has become something of a Jim Kirkwood trademark recently so it comes as no surprise that he begins this, his latest side project album, in similar fashion. The opener...

This is the third album I did under the name Ancient Technology Cult and this time round I wanted to do a piece of music that was long enough and varied enough to fill an album. So here it is. The challenge of doing a track like this is to make it musically interesting, varying in pace and mood whilst still maintaining the theme and feel from beginning to end. I don't suppose it is ever likely to be played on the radio. I'll try not to lose any sleep over that. The subject matter wasn't a difficult choice and...

I was eight years old, and left to my own devices whilst my parents were visiting my great aunt in Victoria, London, I immediately set off with my younger sister for the Circle Line. We simply sat on the train for hours taking in the strange and wonderful names of the stations. Blackfriars, Temple, Monument, Tower Hill, Nottinghill Gate, and so on. Fast forward more years than I would care to admit to, and I'm still fascinated by London. Today I'm with my better half doing a tour of the Hawksmoor churches and their association with Jack the Ripper. We...
