I lost the Deadly Music DOT Com domain in 2018 but I’ve left the above digital image here as a reminder of when I photoshopped it as a Flyer and large Sticker I had stuck on a big padlocked tin box that together with my mobile number in large type was attached to the back of my motorbike.
I’d ride the roads and streets of Cambodia with my guitar in a soft case strapped to my back and my portable speaker, leads, mic and foot pedal in my custom made speaker box. Unfortunately, having invested the time, effort and money to purchase the speaker, make the box, print flyers and solicit venues, I got to play no more than a few poorly paid gigs.
Even though I approached venues to play for as little as $20 per 45 minute set, tourist bars and restaurants either weren’t interested, preferred their electronic drug music or liked to retain imported Filipino performers to cover Western songs rather than an authentic White Cow’s Boy to play his Original Songs & Covers. What can I say … um … “Total Fashion Victims!” … are the nicest words that spring to mind.
Similarly, having made my #ArtistsForTruth Radio Show available as a free public resource for more than four years without receiving any likes or shares or comments that attest to it having an audience, I decided in 2020 with 20-20 hindsight, to make it Private and available to those who support my work as outlined on the JOIN or DONATE page.
