Paradox One News & Radio Play & Links


pAraDoX OnE is back in action!

After a period of silence and four years since the last release a new album will emerge in the autumn entitled ‘This Fragile Peace’. On it Phil is honoured to be accompanied by two members of Census of Hallucinations, Tim Jones and Paddi. Details regarding sleeve, label and distribution have still to be worked out. Tim is working on the production at the moment.

This is hopefully the start of a period of more intense activity with Phil beginning work on a second project with Tim and Paddi and also recreating earlier releases along with unreleased. This will cover the usual eclectic range of musical styles.
A run-down on the track listing is as follows (order undecided):

Until Hell Freezes Over (c 6/7 minutes) depicting the chaos, fear and uncertainty of the Cold War and the Cuban missile crisis, instrumental with archive sound samples;

Perdido Street (c 4m 30 sec) inspired by the dysfunctional world created by China Melville in his brilliant book. Depicts that feeling of dislocation many of us feel, lyrics informed by an early morning walk among the nooks and crannies of a big city;

Regrets (around 4 minutes) this is a very personal ‘song’ about regret and longing;

Waiting in Airports (c 7 minutes) inspired by Richard Gorman’s poem, work took me into aeroplanes last year more than at any time in my life and Richard’s words caught the feeling perfectly;

Lament for the Village of Cam Ne 5/8/1965 (c 5 minutes) Just look at what’s happening in the world right now- what has been learned? Correspondent Morley Safer’s haunting account is backed by guitar and preceded by two brief piano vignettes;

This Fragile Peace (c 2 minutes) This is the way I feel on a personal and world level, just me on guitar with a poem and a sample;

Revolution #10 (c 8 minutes) Somebody had to do it- yes, it is musique concrete but with some nice melodies as well- in 4 parts: i) Fug and Babel ii) They Were So Happy They Were Breaking Glasses iii) Abnormal Road and iv) An Aching.
Hopefully as well we can have some tracks on the site before long.

Meanwhile, anyone wishing a review copy as always e-mail Phil at

Reviewers/ radio people- please request a copy by e-mailing CDs will be individually numbers and entitled!.

Phils Festive 40 is now online.

What a FANTASTIC new album!!! Tremendous stuff, full of atmosphere!!! Your best yet!!! We've only heard it once through so far and need to hear it a lot more. A highly original piece of work - THANKYOU!!! The artwork is BRILLIANT - Good luck with this!!! (Tim and Terri at Pet Hippy)

“I have listened to the ’Inventing Stars’ CD 5 times already- all of your CDs are stunning but i have got to say that this is something special- the sound and production is awesome right from the opening track and what can I say about track 2 and 3 stunning very well written and I found them very moving (‘Invisible’ and ‘Invisible Too’) The extra musicians that you have on the CD work really well and you each compliment each other each time. Each time I have listened to ‘Inventing Stars’ I have always heard something different and that is what i love about your CDs always a different twist and turn that keeps me tuned to the music. ‘Regeneration’ is a GREAT track as are all the tracks on this CD if i was a music reviewer I would give Inventing Stars 10/10 thanks for making one bloke very happy. Before I received the new CD I had a PARADOX ONE night and played all of your CDs from the very first to the last one- before ‘Inventing Stars’ you have produced 5 top class CDs and I am just so lucky to have found Paradox One a few years ago- please pass on my regards to the musicians who played on ‘Inventing Stars’ and let them know that the bloke from New Zealand thinks that they have done a great job.”
(Don Williams from Christchurch)
(I don’t know what to say, Don. I am completely overwhelmed by your comments and it is down to people like you that I keep producing music because there isn’t really a lot of interest ‘out there’. So please tell your friends and I’ll pass on your comments to the others who played on the album).

Thanks to Tim and Terri for including ‘Kinderscenen’ from my first album ‘reality Quake’ on their best of Alchemical Radio (show 5)

Thanks to Gagliarchives for playing 'Space Race' from 'Alternative Reality'! Here's the link:

It is a comment like the following from the other side of the Earth from Don Williams of Christchurch, New Zealand that keeps me going!
"I have had your new CD for a week now and i must say it is wicked another top class CD by you Phil it really rocks along beautiful guitar playing GREAT art work to Keep up the great work Phil
Thanks Heaps DON"
You've no idea how much this is appreciated in some dark times.
