"Vena Amoris" is from the Latin for "vein of love". It was suggested as a title for a forthcoming Foci's Left LP by my mother, whereby I've adapted it as a preliminary theme for this EP. The vein of love is normally the wedding ring finger. "Vena Amoris" is a summary for me of the moods someone would have to tolerate if they were to marry me.
"All By Myself" favourited on Twitter by Mary Anne Hobbs of 6Music - www.bbc.co.uk/6music
when I sent it to her through @MuttleySV.
"That All By Myself thing is quite nice. Might be my fave thing you've done. Reminds me of Kettel - Volleyed Iron era." ~ ASC, www.auxiliarymusic.com
and featured on Mary Anne Hobbs' (then) Breezeblock show on Radio 1 with his wife Christine Vaccine.
"It's really good man and I enjoyed listening. I like the concepts in the piece, the feeling on the first segment was nice. Please do keep sending me tunes for consideration, I will always listen fully." ~ Shiva, www.bitratemusic.com
on "A Minor G String".
"You definitely have my attention and you are certainly pushing boundaries. I'm waiting for the piece that I have no reservations about." ~ Nic TVG, artist listed in Thom Yorke's (Radiohead) charts and Pinecone Moonshine owner concerning signing tunes to PCMS.
