"Paul, the Phone is Ringing!" - So said my wonderful wife, Kathryn, when my stepson didn't want to get out of bed! I added a breaks-type beat over it and a few samples and came up with this track.

She doesn't sound like that in real life, by the way!

The song has been out on Soundcloud and major streaming services for a while, but I actually recorded it a few years ago. I'm now releasing it on Bandcamp now under the "From the Archives" banner.

I'm in the middle of recording some songs for a new album which should be out in early 2023, so expect more songs from the Archive before then!

Please follow me on the following site for updates on the forthcoming album and everything else I'm doing:
