Patreon Update – Download “Spy In The Sky” by ProgAustralis

So, the video went up a couple of weeks ago .. and here’s the audio for download.

The track has evolved here a bit further than last time I played it at the Last Chance To Hear album launch – which you can still listen to here

Specifically .. a bit more creative percussion accompanying Mr Shatner. And a bit of a guitar/keyboard solo duel at the end, courtesy of Tim Bennetts on keys.

Still editing the rest of the gig and it will eventually be posted on Patreon in its entirety!

You can access all my Patreon content from as little as $1 USD per month.

Season’s Greetings!

Hi everyone!

I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Lively Life Day and Sparkling Solstice.

Thank you for your support during the year, and special thanks to my amazing Patreon subscribers.

So here’s a quick list of what you might have missed from Camp Craven over the last few weeks:

From the ProgAustralis show earlier this year, Tim Bennetts and I unleash the latest version of Spy In The Sky (featuring William Shatner), now with more Star Trek!

We also tease with a bit of Sorrow. Next time we’ll learn the whole song.

The lost second episode of the FrankenOpenDiscussion podcast, confusingly masquerading as the third episode. Opening enthusiasm for Rick Beato and the recent Tool album swiftly transforms into a rousing debate about how artists can get paid for their work in the age of streaming.

Behind the music! The making of “Turn Out The Light” and how the ‘Fido collaborated to record one of the most significant* songs in the history of music itself.

*Your definition of “significant” may differ from that of Frankenfido, its subsidiaries and shareholders.

Have a wonderful break and remember – kids, don’t do drugs.


I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, and have come to the conclusion that the old-fashioned patronage model is probably the best way to move forward if I want to keep making music.
So I have set up a Patreon page.
My aim here is to post bonus content for anyone who’s interested. Video updates, audio downloads, previews of new music, Bandcamp discounts… From as little as $1 per month, all this can be yours!
Some of you might remember I experimented with a similar approach (“TuneLeak”) while recording my last album. The TuneLeaks are alive and well again, but this time on Patreon.
All your support is appreciated!
