Watch the video for new single EMINENT SLEAZE now!

SWNews

Following the release of PERSONAL SHOPPER earlier in the year, a second track from THE FUTURE BITES is out online today. EMINENT SLEAZE is a wholly unethical life lesson strapped to a piece of grimy, low-slung funk, and as much a departure from Steven’s previous records as its immediate predecessor (watch Miles Skarin’s end times video for the track below). … Read More

And No Birds Sing Teaser

SWNews

Many of you will know that back in 2004 I co-wrote a film screenplay with my close friend, TV commercial director Mike Bennion. The screenplay was for a surreal ghost story called Deadwing, set in London with a film sound engineer David as its central character.

Tribute to Tim Smith

SWNews

I am deeply saddened to read of the passing of Tim Smith from Cardiacs today. Even though Tim had been ill for many years, it’s still hard for me to think of him as gone, as his music made such a big impression on me, and continues to do so.

While THE FUTURE BITES has been delayed, I thought it would be fun to make available stems for my recent single PERSONAL SHOPPER to be remixed.

The Future Postponed

SWNews

As with many of my albums, The Future Bites is not just about the music, it’s a high concept project which involves design, artwork, video and a tour production, all on a grander scale than anything I’ve attempted before.
