This is intended as a meeting place for folk interested in the music I make with Marcus Cliffe as Miracle Mile or my solo stuff as 'Jones'.
I hope it'll be fun and might host some healthy banter; giving me a chance to share some music, video, thoughts etc.
It can get a little lonely in the attic; why not slide a note under the door...

Lovesong: James Grant: My Father's Coat
I've admired James Grant since his Friends Again days, was a little underwhelmed by Love and Money, but got back onboard with the sublime 'Sawdust in Our Veins'.
Thanks to Phil Duncan who reminded me of this gem from Grant's 'Strange Flowers' album.
It's interesting to see how some narrative driven videos endure; this might be a little over wrought for some, but I love the noir drama of it all; the great faces of the father and son; not to mention the cracking Crombie that Jimbo's wearing...
Oh, and am I allowed to say that the girl with the boa feathers has a shapely derriere?
There must be bromine in that man's beer.
Also Bazza's right, maybe solos are making a comeback; here we a harmonica and a smoking guitar...
