Shake your lettuce! The heartwarming story behind the lead track of my new EP, out on May 17th

You might have noticed a banner appearing at the top of this website in recent days, and wondering what it’s all about. Well, it’s the title of my new two track EP, soon to be released on 3rd Way Recordings.

The first record is called “Shake Your Lettuce”. Why the weird name? Well, I’d made this track with a few rhodes chords and a big bassline on it, but wasn’t quite sure what to call it. Around the same time, my 4 year old son started saying “shake your lettuce” a lot. No idea why, but I recorded him saying it and stuck it on the track.

And if that’s not for you, the deeper alternative track will be. “Danny’s Analogous House” is a throwback to the olden days when that organ bass sound was everywhere – although I’m at pains to point out this is not the constantly recurring Korg M1 organ patch!

Track previews and preorder links are now on Traxsource, ahead of the May 17th release…
