Heart Like a Steel / Window of Love

Heart Like a Steel

Window of Love

Two mixdowns of a semi-serious recording session with Michael and Louise, a few Sundays back.

The mixes still have alive quality but in with the process was far more careful and procedural than the rather haphazard wine and cheese influenced sessions this group is used to having. Next jam session might be one of that other kind.

Songs, guitar, vocals – Michael H

Bass, Louise, Steve on a later overdub

Banjo, percussion, mixing – Steve

Enjoy all, and Merry Xmas



Tony Gill / The Love in Your Heart

Yo Emma,

What are the defining features of a demo version?

  • Instruments out of tune
  • Hastily played
  • Singer has a cold
  • Pieced together out of stray bits of audio
  • Lyrics still subject to change

Ahem. Without further ado may I present the demo version of a new Luker and Southern number pending your veto:

Tony’s Tune / The Love in Your Heart (Luker / McKenzie).

Plenty of room for you to practice violiny bits and an intended reprise of the tune at the end.

Have fun.




Posse of Awesome

Myself and Louise and Jeremy Phillips and Michael Heim had a jam a few weeks back and there are recordings which are not for public consumption owing to their brain melting brilliance. Only those in the know get the hyperlinks.For the time being.

Jeremy has suggested that the name for this outfit be called Posse of Awesome and I do not have a better name.

There is apparently some a video of us on Facebook singing a very drunk version of Anarchy in the UK in waltz time. I am not on Facebook so haven’t seen it.

So, that’s a new band thing I am in now.


Broken Arrow

The song Broken Arrow has been around since about 2006 I think. I did a very jazzy recording of it when we were living in the Solomon Islands for Lee to sing, but we never finished that series, so it remains as an instrumental version.

I recorded this much simpler acoustic demo version yesterday, for use in an ensemble featuring my wife Louise Kleinig, Michael Heim, and Jeremy Phillps, and old mate from back in the day.

Here it is, with chords for all you chordy folks.


Intro: Emin – G – Emin – G

Verse: Emin – G – Emin – G x 2


C – C7

Bflat – Bflat maj7

F – Fmaj7 (possibly with a minor 3rd)

C – Cmaj7

Emin – G – Emin G


You’ll pick it up.



Body Builder Xmas Special

It’s been hella quiet round here lately but that may change. I have been doing lots of music lately. This first track I’m putting up is  your Xmas present from me. Listen to it after eating to much. Love Steve.

I’m not fuckin’ with ya I wanna pump til my muscles hump and til the veins in my arms explode

I wanna be a bodybuilder
