"Cactus - The Demo"
"Dubya B Statesman - The Cactus Element"


Feeling a bit camera shy


My friends Pete, Pat and I have a band called "The Cactus Element". We produced a demo and an EP, but got a loud round of indifference from radio and record companies. The fact we are "too old" is the main reason I think.

I didn't pick up a guitar until I was thirty, but not long after I discovered I had quite a knack for songwriting. So I've decided to try and promote my songs, and a few I've co-written with Pete, to see if someone out there would like to make something out of them.

I have written a few love or lost love kind of songs, a few political / protest songs, and several songs about the human condition, which is my favourite subject matter.

Some of the best material was co-written with my mate Pete.
