Yes, I am moving house, to a delightful (if floody) village near Worcester. I am not writing this to boast or anything, I am writing it because this represents a very important step for me creatively. I finally have some decent room for making music and a great shed for making my odd musical instruments.

I can now practice my Melt Banana support gig at full pelt, and I can get on much better with building my midi-octopus for Futuresonic. Bingo!

Sonic Weekend 4

I will be leaving for a church in Wirksworth later today, and Sonic Weekend 4. I am so looking forward to my second Sonic Weekend. The last one was just amazing. A mixture of inspirations, challenges, great music, great people, laughs and beer.

Yes, it really is THAT good!

All change…

Uncool Sam is dead, long live Uncool Sam.

As my musical endeavours are gathering some momentum I felt it was time to address a burning issue, my artist name. One too many people I respect had told me that Uncool Sam was a shit name, despite the pun. In any case, my faith in those across the pond has been restored a little following the recent election.

So, I am reborn as mr.underwood…complete with this new site. I have also created a number of other identities for work in different genres and fields, so you can also expect to see me as – Glatze, Eschaton and SaMMaS.
