My first EP was created in a quick creative burst leading up to October 2007. I had been making weird comedy songs for my show on Radio One in Dunedin that I spent too long on the production of and not enough on the comedy. I decided one day to make one of these tracks without relying on others' samples. Shortly afterwards came The Joke Isn't Funny EP.


released October 15, 2007

Track Name: In the Loop
Soundhawk skies
Baracuda pies
They don’t exist
Just in my mind
I find the time to unwind
But I’m undone by who I’ve become
Not what I’ve done
So shut it now loop
Loop (repeated)
Track Name: Radio Part Two
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin
