Tracklist Hide Credits
COLOSSUS is an inconceivably massive project that consists of 50 tracks all of which are 50 minutes long.
COLOSSUS PART ONE consists of the first 25 tracks.
COLOSSUS PART TWO completes the project and will be available on 11th March 2019, my 50th Birthday.
Parts One and Two combined will be just short of 42 hours of 'music'.
The 'songs' are extreme, simple, complex, mellow, angular and often surreal adaptations of every single hit from the last 50 years that was at Number One in the UK charts on my birthday.
The music is either in the same key or with the same notes played but in a different order, backwards or inverted. Further music and notation has been added by myself. They are absolutely nothing like the originals.
Additionally, the words to the songs are formed from the lyrics to every Number One hit from the last 50 years. But with a twist.
I have adapted the lyrics by using the William Burroughs cut up method and further changed them to make some kind of structure, but they remain predominantly abstract and nonsensical.
Many thanks to all the narrators who are individually credited on the track titles.
Further thanks to all the listeners, detractors, strangers, friends, foes and all those that were cruel or kind that have faded in and out of my existence. You, in no small way have helped me create this monolith.
Happy Birthday to me - here's to 100.
