 old photos make me sad
 new photos are just old without sad
 one day everyone will leave me, rather,
I will leave everyone.... tomorrow? You told me to align from the right.

So when I finish work I listen to this, like, how good is chiptune?

it's amzing

Wednesday, November 21, 2012


A colleague of mine cut his finger off at work
He didn't say a thing
But I knew  exactly what he was thinking
With no fingers one might be a little down in the mouth
But no one can be sad when you live in Hastings
and I'm going back there soon
For a family gathering
We eat almonds and pastry
And most times go swimming
I've missed a few of the last ones
Been tanning in a seaside town
But this year I'm coming back
I'm coming back
coming back to Hastings

Joy in Love

PIUPIU MAYA TUREI made this video, it's cool!

$noregazZzm - JUNGLEWAVE [2012]

some words hurt like.... "Jos! The ants are in you're cereal"

but this doesn't;

Friday, November 9, 2012

 you'd sure like to know
a little more about life
you'd sure like to know
a little more about things
You'd sure like to know just people in general
well sweetie, so do I
I'd sure love to be
someone who has it
I'd sure love to be
someone with charisma
I just want a little control
I just want a little authority
I do want to beat around a crowd who're looking down
with contempt of children claiming they have it all
but never knowing which to choose and who to let go
we're thinking, thinking, this maze is far too confusing for us
I am just "sit here and sob until I see a sign"

Maya Turei made this video and it's awesome,

I'm going to Fiji w/ my Paps
I haven't posted on here in a while
The new Attic Sky's video makes me feel tender
I did a performance with Piu
It was fun
My boss told me I did good work today
Maybe I'll get a bonus
My hands are slippery from wheat-paste
I'm supposed to be saving money for Europe
But it's been hard lately
I might thumb my way home for Christmas this year
I might do anything.

Here is the video the song is called 'A Word For Missing Something Before It's Gone'

Going to Australia tomorrow, pretty excited to see people and play shows.

This is not a Game, Boy

So I did this release via The Waveform Generator it's 11 tracks of chip-esque songs made on a tracker called Little Piggy. It has some vocal interludes and stuff and you should listen to it!
Later I'm planning on making some compact discs so you can touch it, I guess!

Special thanks to; Andrew Kilpatrick, Hana Aoake, Piupiu-Maya Turei and Georgia Glass

plus Little Scale for publishing a Sega Megadrive sample bank.

i love you so much
like you're gonna get
so mad at me for
loving you so much
one morning you're 
gonna wake up with
no skin and i'm gonna be 
wearing it ha like oh yeah
i'm under your skin! X

"We take turns reading letters, I read the haiku and you move your nails across my legs. In your arms, I don't know who I am, taking all I know about nihilism and trying to build it into a life. With your thought in mind, I walk the streets down to the shore and I sink into the Pacific."

$noregazZzm Fauxhound remix

it's like brk brk brk and rules, it's an old song of the first ep you should listen and if you're from #GBA you should post it on there.... Alex/Tom/Sebastian/Chris/Sean
PIUPIU-MAYA TUREI IS LOVELY, and here is a poem I wrote for her

Thursday, August 9, 2012

So I've been busy recording new songs for the up and coming fauxhound album, Lisandru ($noregazZzm) is doing a remix for it too. Anyhow I'm enjoying using lgpt it's a great tracker imo.
Here are some words you may find on the record!

my past has been a crawl in the undergrowth
my memories are damp growing with moss yet covered in life
and insects as beautiful as they are seem too close for comfort
small birds speak to me from high above
saying "it's awful pretty here amongst the clouds
it sure is a drag dragging feet in the dirt"
i shake my fist saying "this is were i belong"
stop taunting me with lies of life up above
but come matariki, come my seven sisters
lift me from the ground in my shame
you say i had to be there to understand
the simple beauty known as your name
and now I can walk hand in hand with my love
as she sings me to sleep
softly saying "you never tasted life this sweet
you never tasted life this sweet"

come matariki come my seven sisters
no one has seen light quite like this
no one has seen light quite like this

Saturday, August 4, 2012

like yeah, spending 6 hours in a bus is, like, the best thing with her.
I got nervous before the party and when I arrived I could not stop talking
And with her by my side I'm 8 feet tall
She is just so.

finally a post about chiptune

So tomorrow I'm playing a show in Dunedin, the poster is pictured above.
It's gonna be rad, like really awesome! Also I'm working on an a new release so here is a track from it, probably not the final mix but it's a taste. The song is called 'Boy Et Al' and the release is going to be called 'This is not a Game, Boy!' It's all written on LGPT and will feature b-side(s) which will be songs from my Gameboy. 
Yeah that's all.

Darling you are my moon
Allah my sun
you guide me by night
Love, you make my waters move
Playfully lapping the shore
Sweet, you tease the blood in my veins
Your beauty drives me toward lunatic
Lunar eclipse
Perigee and apogee
Your seasons make me feel alive
We flow like harmonic circles
Your face is all I wish to gaze upon
I'll never see your back
for Darling....
You are my moon.

'Maths' the haiku

one, two, three, four, five
six, five, six, five, six, five, six
five, four, three, two, one

Saturday, July 14, 2012


you are a fresh breath
fill my lungs with your sweet  voice
love, that i may sing

Friday, July 13, 2012

my past romantic exploits have been but vanity the only purpose they served was to prepare my heart for you to enjoy.

Monday, July 2, 2012

this is how my mind melts
with scents of colours in my mouth
and i got lumps in my throat
saying you were here long before
and love i think you're something else
a taste that i have never felt
lets float away somewhere far
and dance together all night long

lets float away somewhere far
and dance together all night long 

Thursday, June 28, 2012

there are beaches
there are babies
and the two were alone
sure they had met
but the men they were lost
in the folds of the heat
eating burgers on beaches
making dinner for their babies
who ran in bikinis
playing sports with the surfies
get tans kissing ladies
cause life sure is great
when you're born in the 60s
life sure is great, you're the booming babies

dstryrythm (rubijaq.sav)

so this rubijaq remix I did is now public, I guess whatevs.

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Kissed by the sun on a winter's day
It's still pretty cold it sure is cold 
And to be fair I still miss her 
But sweet you're the cutest ever 
So lets lock our lips and fold our hands 
Lets lock our lips and fold our hands 
You can watch me plunge into the deep end of a swimming pool 
But when my feet plant the ground you won't hear me yell 
Allah has me now, Allah has me now

Disasteradio + WAOTS + Dunedin

So far June has been pretty awesome! Maya came to visit for a week and we had loads of fun, it sucks she's gone back to Dunedin but I'll be down there in July so it's not too long of a wait!

Also went with Lisandru, Owen, Lucy, and John to play a show in Wellington which was fun. Lisandru {$noregazZzm} played the best set I have ever seen from him it was actually so good!! Was really cool to catch up Chris {Old Grey Wolf} he plays with a bass guitar now and it sounds really rad, similar vain to Teen Fortress vibes!! We drove back to Auckland with Max {WAOTS} and Luke {Disasteradio} it was such a fun return journey and i brought a new phone on Tokoroa because I left my charger in Wellington :c. The next day we were very busy setting up the rave in the snakepit basement and the show was so awesome, so many lights and smoke and awesome visuals! I was very pleased with how my set went.

So coming up; I'm playing a seapunk house party this Saturday, my friends have finally occupied every single living space in this small apartment building so it's gonna be a pretty huge party i'm pretty excited about it! Also in July I'm going to play some shows in Dunedin with Lisandru which are going to be sick. The poster for the refuel show is above, i ripped it from the farcebook event page so the quality is lacking.

I'm on a really sweet buzz atm, and am super excited to see Maya again!

Friday, June 8, 2012

So Lisandru and I had a party in Christchurch, we also had the privilege to be apart of this chiptune documentary!!!
chipmusic.org-forum!  I posted it on cm.o and got some good opinions on it!

no one wanted to see my gig/home setup on cm.o apparently :c

Fauxhound, Papaiti Records Bootleggings

So James Stuteley recorded the Fauxhound Tunnel set in Tauranga, he then kindly uploaded it on the Papaiti Records, Bootlegs website. Mean. It was a pretty fun show (see blogpost). Click the picture for free download it's 22mb.

Fauxhound at the Jizz Festival

So I played in Tauranga last Sunday in the 'Tauranga Music Sux Tunnel' it was a pretty sweet place to play. I was only disappointed that no trains went over the tunnel whilst I played, Ralph got two! It was really hot and I played the entire set on my knees. Here is a video of a new song I've been working on, it has no vocals. Also the crowd were very enthused... I actually got really good feedback (mostly from older people), one guy, Shane, said I reminded him of early Headless Chickens, wurd up!

This is Ralph +++ a train, Ralph are really awesome and Ary and Jess are super rad. I really hope I can play more shows with them in the future

Monday, April 2, 2012

I was a big success, and now, they message me back saying "you were a big success" and I say "inorite?"

Camp A Low Hum 2012

So CALH was in Wainuiomata {camp Wanui} this year. It was amazing, I was given the privilege to perform with $noregazZzm for both their sets, I also played a renegade as Fauxhound. Playing at camp is probably the most fun ever. The Fauxhound set went really well. There were a load of people there, which was especially cool seeing the only advertising was word of mouth.

There were a lot of amazing bands there but a few really blew me away, they are as follows;

Talkshow Boy/Keith! Party

While Spring Break played the lagoon pool party TalkShow Boy was owning the renegade room. This was seriously an amazing set. Talkshow Boy stormed around the renegade room spitting trash rap vocals to a variety of awesome backing tracks!


So Flo Wilson is pretty cute and she is also Foxtrot. She did this one song, in the renegade room, with loads of breathing and I felt so weird.... it seemed so sexual but not in a smutty kinda way, I don't know it was weird and AMAZING.


Just watch the video stupid, you'll know, you'll know
I missed their first set but saw them play on the lawn.

A Art

Even if you don't like chipmusic you probably would have fallen in love with Dove when he played renegade. This is awesome to the baddest. wordup.

Patric Catani/ Candie Hank
Candie Hank Tracks + Remixes by Catani

So Patric Catani played camp as Candie Hank, I kinda lost my nut 'cause I love chiptune. But this dude was soooo sweet. As a live performance in the forest it was simply magical!

He can rap, really well, in English. He can rap, really well, in German.

Thursday, February 16, 2012


this video was posted on ch1p b4$$ and it's so totally rad!!

mighty mighty

playing this sweet show after camp, it's gonna be 'off the chain'

chipped cherries

If I were to write one hundred songs like this I could still not win her over. We are destined to an eternity of; prolonged, platonic, friendship.

I never touched you then, I'll never reach you today

Friday, February 3, 2012


So Josh and I made this track a very long time ago, we were just mucking around on his Dad's sample drum machine and then I added stuff in using my casiotone ck-500 and a bitcrush plugin. This is probably one of the very first chip-esque songs I have written.

This is a ck-500, wordup

Sweet Sweet Sweat

So here my latest 4bit gem as Fauxhound, it even has a tiny sprinkling of Rubijaq in it!!! I haven't put in vocals yet but I got some words in my pocket that have a little punch, whatever.

Wednesday, January 18, 2012


Maybe it's better to write kicks into the pulse phrase before the other pulse instruments, all of my latest songs have really odd beat patterns. hmmmm. In other news I got my gameboy back, minus the batteries and battery cover, pretty pleased about all this! I have no spare batteries so I can't check what the thief has done to my .sav(s).

Also Ivan (rubijaq) & Gen left this morning, it was super rad having them here, Ivan played one last set in Dave's room using Lisandru's Kaoss Pad, was fully sick! Also maybe now I'm gonna try eating vegan more often

Thursday, January 5, 2012


I had a dream about you last night, I'm pretty sure you know I did too. You were sitting on my lap/legs {I was half sitting half lying down}, you wanted to leave but I said "no stay"! I held onto you and you couldn't go, for some reason I was much stronger, then I put you in a cage and fed you food. Every second day I'd feel your finger to see if you were fat enough to eat, instead of a finger you would put out a twig. I never did get to eat you.
