 I started this song not knowing where it would go.  By the time I had finished I realized that in some ways it is  a little glimpse of my life past, present and what I hope is the future.  It is the first song I have written in 3/4 time and I think this one really showcases the influence that Chris DeBurgh has had on my music.

This song was written when I was younger and had a dream of visiting Wales where my grandmother was born.  I still have this dream to one day visit and see where part of my heritage began.  I didn't change very much from how I originally invisioned the song, and again let my love of writting music fit for an orchestra (at least brass and woodwind sections) bloom. So in memory of my grandmother, enjoy this song about the land of The Dragon Red

Written back in 1990 This was one of my firts songs about a broken heart.  Over the years I really have never changed much to the arrangement that I came up with back then

A cover of Gowans' song originally released 25 years ago in 1990.  I used the original, some live versions and added a little Bonish to the mix

Posted by bonish on April 12, 2012 at 10:43 PM

This is a song I have had an idea for for 2 - 3 years, but it wasn't until recently that the idea worked itself into a project.  Part of the credit for that goes to my new endevour as a bassist, and this is the first song I am contributing to the band Instruments of Kaos. 

This is my way of honouring Alice Cooper who has been an influence on much of my writting

2 Comments (Still A) Criminal Mind
Posted by bonish on April 12, 2012 at 10:43 PM

  30 years after Gowans' 'Criminal Mind', our master theif NO-Man has served his time and is ready to be released....

 Insipred by a comic page written by another Gowan fan, I asked Gowan if I could indeed continue the story. When he replied yes I damn near dropped my phone.  Part of the reason I had asked was that in writting the music, I knew I would be coming very close to the original in some respects.  The lead in line, solo and parts of the ending are in fact following very close to the musical lines of the original. As well lyrically I also have lines that parrallel the original.  My goal was to write a song that could flow off the original, yet stand alone as it's own song.

  While I may never know what Mr. Gowan thinks of the song, I do hope that you all and he enjoys this part of No-Man's Story
