Smalltime is the first of three albums I'm going to release in 2013. The zine (which comes with the cassette and CDR versions) is made up of photos I took years ago - the roll of film was only developed the other day, having sat forgotten in a dusty box beside some Adrian Tomine comics I thought I'd lost forever. In memory of Roger Ebert, who died this year, and Elliott Smith, who died a decade ago. I didn't know them personally but they inspired me (and still do).

NOTE: Beware that some of the songs are mixed into eachother, as I made Smalltime as an album - it will sound weird as a collection of individual mp3s so put it all on to a tape or CD if you've gone for the download option.
