Guy Fieri and King Mike V at the Grand Opening of his new restaurant: The Burro Borracho a.k.a. The Drunk Donkey.... Guy Fieri hung my painting above his bar. I'm a huge fan of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. So it is a big honor to be the featured artist at his bar. Super Cool.
WOUNDED LOVER - WOUNDED BY OVER INDULGENCE DURING FESTIVE PERIOD!
Here at Casa Mojo, we wish you all a wonderful new year! We hope you have all been enjoying the treats of the festive period. Blimey, we have! It's been a healthy diet of David Niven's and Mince Pies since December 1st. Remember to enjoy yourself, but be carewful not to over indulge. Otherwise you may end up in the sticky situation T-Bone found himself in at the Casa Mojo Xmas party..just shocking if not exactly surprising!
To welcome in the new year, we have a new Wounded Lovers song for you to enjoy and download for free.
Well, it is almost all done. Wrapped up. FInished. Fin. Over. Insert verb here.
Yes, we are moments away from turning from 2014 to 2015! The freaking year that Back to The future was set...Great scott!!!
2014 was a year that seemed to pass at an astonishing rate, but when I look back, there was SO much achived and so many people that were a part of it!
Yes, I started the year with three new recordings, that were planned to be released through an independent record label.
Times were good.
And then I was given a very quick education about the music industry and found that the rumours are true - Old school labels (I realise there are some good ones around!) literally do nothing and take a cut of your profits for the privalege. The owners dress like twats, desperatley want to be younger than they are and pay themselves to spout utter bull shit constantly.
However, the first half of the year taught me a hell of a lot, most importantly that I can do everything that the labels promise. I set up my own label (Colossal Records) and released my third single, Someone, on it.
There were also two top videos for the singles, 'London Lives' and 'The Girl', directed by the ever talented Mike Sumpter and Pardeep Sahota repsectively. Both shoots were chock full of taletned crew and extras - Jordan Maders being head DOP on both videos, Edting skills from Waiel Al-Nour for "The Girl" and Eoin Martin for "London lives" as well as Ed Matthews and Emmett Glynn for their expert sound skills, to name but a few.
SO much fun was had, which can be seen in the behind the scenes documentries direected by Liliya Yovcheva. Also, if you wonder "Where is the video for 'Someone'?" Fear not! It is coming and will be released with the EP on February 16th 2015.
On the live side I was BUSY! There were 60 gigs performed, countless busking slots played and I continued to perform at Chelsea and Westminster hospital to ease the suffering of the Cancer and HIV patients. I played with my new band "The One Ts" on a monthluy basis and saw new crowds be drawn to my music. Stage invasions, heavy drinking and good old fashioned partying was the story of most of my performances.
I got a lot more coverage in 2014 on TV, radio and press and although not the reason why I do it, it was wonderful to have such a positive response from so many reviwers and media types! One in prticular needs to be mentioned becasue of her constant support, absolute belief and help with my career regardless of how quickly (and rightly so) her blog is growing - I believe the 1 million views mark has been reached! So,massive thanks goes to the amazingly talented and wonderful Vanessa "Jetwash" Jertschewske, from House in the Sand. People like her are a musicians dream!
There are so many people that have helped me out in one way or another this year that it would take too long to list you all, but I do need to mention:
Cecilia Paulsson for her amazing photo skills, both for my press shots and the artwork for "The Girl".
Devora Nikolaeva for her acting skills in "The Girl" and her beauty for the artwork for the same single - I'm convinced it was her that made my record sales spike on release day!
Michael Hurn for his artwork for London Lives
All members of The One Ts circa 2014
And of course every single one of you that has come to a gig, bought a track, liked or followed me and just been down right awesome!
I love you all for it, I cannot thank you enough. 2015 is gonna be mega, believe!
After taking the month of December off, we are heading up to Truckee this week for our New Year’s Eve show at Northstar Resort.We'll be performing a FREE outdoor show from 7-9PM immediately followed by a huge fireworks display! A great way to send off 2014 and get ready for 2015.
We return to the Bay Area to kick off Mofo Tour 2015 with two great shows.
Saturday, 1/3/15 we make our debut at the City Wineryin Napa. This is one of the finest new music venues in the Bay Area. It’s been over two years since we last played in Napa and we’re really looking forward to seeing all of our friends in the wine country. It will be a special night! Tickets are going fast and we highly recommend you get your tickets in advance now HERE.
Friday, 1/9/15 we are back at Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol with very Special Guests: Feat Prints – A Tribute to Little Feat(featuring PT keys man Mike Emerson). This is one of the first places we ever had a packed house and it has been a special venue for us ever since. This show is expected to sellout so get your tickets in advance now HERE.
Well, that's another one done, hey?! Did we all have a good one? Get what you want? Feel like a fat alcoholic now?
Yeah, me too! I am back from the mighty Maidstone as if I had have stayed at my Mums any longer I would have got type II diabities and been the size of that man that was saved by Jerry Springer in the ninties!
Still, it was nice to get back to the homeland and relax for a while. It worked too, I got back literally about 2 hours ago and I have written a new tune that I am convinced will be on the next EP in the latter part of the year! I love it and Christ knows where it came from! Like all the good 'uns it came from no where!
This EP is shaping up nicely and I am booking gigs for this year as we speak, so it is all go!
I'm getting things together for 2015 and I will do a 2014 round up later this week, believe!!
Well, it's that magical evening that comes around once a year...I've spent mine rushing around trying to buy last minute presents.
One day I will learn!
Alas, that is done and all is well. I apologise for the lack of interaction these last few weeks. It has been a busy time and I am trying to put things in order for next year. After an enlightening experience with a lazy, good for nothing label I realise that there is no need to associate myself with money grabbers and do things alone. So, next year will be a lot better...not to say this year ahsn't been great!
It's been AWESOME!!
I'll do a full round up at New Years, but for now I shall leave you to your mince pies!
Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, I love you all, believe!!!

It's been a long time since the last update. Demagolka disbanded in 2013 just to reform briefly merely a couple of months later. During that time things happened - let us explain them here.
"VARMALUS" - Demagolka's NEW STUDIO ALBUM
This one's a big one - Stateslaver Zero has completed work on Demagolka's sixth studio album, "Varmalus", a massive 50-minute collection of epic ambient pieces that are among Team Nakrikal's best soundscapes to date.
The album is available as Disc Two of the "IMPERIAL EDITION", a Special Edition release containing the following:
- Disc One contains the remastered re-issues of "Strenuus" and "Bloodfen EP", along with two exclusive bonus tracks.
- Disc Two is "Varmalus" in its entirety. It also included two HIDDEN BONUS TRACKS exclusive to this release and available only to those who purchase the entire album.
- Additional goodies include hi-res "Varmalus" artwork designed by Stateslaver Zero for the purposes of this project.
IMPERIAL EDITION is available for 2$ only! If you like our work please support us and spread the word!
TEAM NAKRIKAL UPDATES
First things first - Stateslaver Zero is the new team leader and the CEO of Nakrikal Records. Our main focus will be on releasing high quality releases for you to purchase on our Bandcamp profile, but fear not! You can expect some free music from us in the future as well.
What happened to Demagolka over the last year? After releasing "Construction Worker" (2013) and "Demagolka" (2014), as well as collaborating with Banan on the "Tatooine EP" Doc Demagol left the band to focus on The Sap Drains, an experimental pop project by Randall Rhodes, one of the most important members of The Demagolka Band, responsible for "Daratar" (2012) and "Altahe" (2013), leaving Stateslaver Zero as the sole member of the band.
What we want to do is to update a number of things on this website, including the Discography section to reflect recent changes. We might also update our Twitter profile as well, provided that we gain access to it.
The plan is to release stuff by some new interesting bands and musicians in the future as well. Stay tuned!
Today's is an absolute belter of a tune, by an incredible band from that decade that seemed to produce the greatest acts of all time. I'd do a hell of a lot to get a sip of that water they were drinking in the sixties!
Anyway, the tuneis by the Animals called Inside Looking Out
The driving bass line and crunchy sixties guitars make this a proper stomper of a tune and when they throw in that hammond organ, well, I get all excited! I love the sparseness of the verses and yet how they have still managed to fill it with so many hooks from the vocal delivery to the bass line and the use of the guitar hitting a chord on the beat. An amazing tune by quite frankly one fo the best bands of the era. You're very welcome!
Hope you all have a great weekend big love always, beleve!!
We want to wish you all the very best for the Holiday Season and thank you for all of your support this year. 2014 was our best year yet, and we’re getting really excited as the 2015 bookings are rolling in! We took a little break in December to spend time with our families, work on our show and add some new songs, so stay tuned for some new surprises in the coming year!
Our last show of 2014 will be New Year’s Eve up at Northstar Resort inLakeTahoe! We will perform a FREE outdoor show from 7-9PM immediately followed by a huge fireworks display.
The following weekend we return to the Bay Area to kick off 2015 with two great shows.
Saturday, 1/3/15 we make our debut at theCity Wineryin Napa. This is one of the finest new music venues in the Bay Area. It’s been two years since we last played in Napa and we’re looking forward to seeing all of our friends up in the wine country. It’s sure to be a special night!

How have you been keeping? Happy and well I hope. Thanks to all those that kept up-to-date through the face book page. I've actually made it to 1000 likes, which is great news to come back to!!
The trip was incredible and Peru was very generous with me. I managed to write two new tracks which I plan to record early 2015 and will be on the EP after I have released, "Misspent Future", which is released on 16th Feburary 2015.
After climbing mountians, living in the jungle and eating lots of Ceviche, I'm back refreshed, renewed and ready to get going again...not to mention with new songs and ideas to get moving on.
So, I need to get over this jet-lag but I just wanted to say "Hi" and let you know normal servie will resume soon, believe!!

This is issue #012 of The Monthly Articles News Column
I exceeded my goal by creating over 90 music videos this year alone. I spent the first days of the month going through them and adjusting quality on some where the imagery may have been blurred in the transistion before I'll be reaching out to Guinness. An example would be better color contrast on videos like "The Shore". Especially useful on some of my 2013 sketched videos. Also if you want go to the discography selection on this site (in photos). Beneath the cds feature 5 dvd covers with the reverse with the song titles selected. I'd like to be able to unleash them as a collection when the time is right. Yes this is required. With the help of others this project can become what it was always meant to be. That is why this article is significant to my follow up.
Don't miss Ramblin' Jack Elliott as Special Guest with Peter Rowan at The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California on Friday December 12th! Peter Rowan, Friday, December 12, 2014, 8:00 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm)
with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Nina Gerber, Blaine Sprouse, Mike Witcher, and Jeff Keana'aina
Peter Rowan is a bluegrass master. His musical roots go back to Bill Monroe. He didn’t just hear Bill Monroe’s recordings – he played guitar and sang lead with Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys in the mid-1960s. After stints in Earth Opera, Muleskinner, and the Marin County rock group Seatrain, he co-founded Old and in the Way with Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Since then, he’s recorded more than 30 albums and earned six Grammy nominations and a Grammy. His classic originals include “Panama Red,” “Lonesome L.A. Cowboy,” and “Moonlight Midnight” – and he’s just released a new album, Twang An’ Groove Vol. 1, featuring high-energy live versions of traditional classics and some of Peter’s outstanding originals. “The entire band coalesces around a supple groove, suggesting a sound not unlike the Grateful Dead in full jam band motif,” says the website Country Standard Time, adding that the free form improvisation “all sounds in sync, a reflection of the band's competence and confidence.” Joining Peter tonight will be Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Nina Gerber, Blaine Sprouse, Mike Witcher, and Jeff Keana'aina. Get your tickets early – this should be a glorious musical celebration, led by a true master!
