“The Moon is Heaven” – OUT NOW!!

On December 31st 2003, I dubbed off three or so cassette copies of my first album as The Golden Gonk- “The Moon is Heaven”. It featured rough guitar and voice demo versions of 25 songs that I’d written that year. I kept one copy for myself…gave the second to a friend…and I’m not sure what happened to the third copy…it’s probably still sitting in a cupboard somewhere…hmm…

Anyway- exactly 8 years on from these humble and low-key (to say the least!!) beginnings, I’m proud to present a fully re-recorded, fleshed out and PUBLICLY AVAILABLE (!!) version of this album that I put together between August and December this year…
