F*****G F**KEDY F**KING MAGROOVE, USELESS DISTRIBUTORS ****DO NOT USE**** 

Black Hole Down is temporarily being taken off all streaming services as the distributor I used; Magroove, can't tell their arse from their elbow and fucked up, having not released it on Apple, Amazon, Pandora and many others, even after 4 emails to customer services, not a bean in response! Twats!

Anyway Black Hole Down is still on Youtube in video form, so go there and listen and watch, like and subscribe, cos we need cheering up!! XXX

A Cosmic Trip for you  

Been messing with text to Ai and and delving back into After Effects (AE) after I couldnt face it for Hacked In. It really is incredible what text to Ai can do alongside something called Stable Diffusion and another technique called Out-painting.

Basically I fed either some of the lyrics direct, or descriptions of what I wanted some of the images to look like and then added styles such as certain artists or sci-fi matte painting and so on. Out-painting is using the Ai prompts to expand on each previous image, keeping the original image in the centre. I just kept doing that to create the images for the zoom, which I had to manipulate in AE to actually create the continuity. Stick on an Ai generated spaceship cockpit and some of this and that in AE and bingo....Cosmic return trip (song dropping Electric Wizard there!)

Give it a go, it's ace! I used Dall-e 2 and Nightcafe, but there are more and more all the time.

Overheard in a Trappist 1e shopping mall "At this rate the Milky Way will collide with Andromeda, quicker than FYDStar releasing their next single!!!!" 

I know, right?!

I have a lot of intention but also a lot of distractions at home these last few years and tbh often my heart is not in it to make music. It comes and goes, but it goes more than it comes!

When i do get the urge, it's exciting again and stuff gets done! In fact its usually been the case that the majority of the production of a song is done in a relatively short time, but the lead up to that relatively frenetic burst can be an age.

Also financially i have been skidding along on my arse for best part of two years now and it is disheartening to not be able to fund the marketing of a song at all, like what happened with Hacked In, though I do get it that, Hacked in was a tad political and not all about space, not even a little bit, so there's that......

At the moment there is no "but now *this* has happened so we're able to blast out singles like a Civet presumably shits out those coffee beans they eat??" (thus making the most expensive coffee in the world, yes, shat cat coffee!!!). But if you like what we've done so far (those 4 things in 2 years!), stick around because there is plenty in the tank, its just I only drive slightly more than that lad in The Lost Boys grandad!

Cheers Gaz
