Limited edition album for Cancer Research UK

Posted in Uncategorized on September 22, 2011 by alunvaughan

Hi all, just a quick blog to let you know that, for the next 10 days, I have a 6 track album of unreleased tracks, mixes and rarities available on Bandcamp with all proceeds going to Cancer Research.

Every year, Cancer Research UK run an event called “Busking Cancer”, where musicians busk or organise events to raise money for their work in helping people affected by cancer. In the past I have done gigs for the event but this year found myself short of time but wanted to do something so decided to release some music instead.
This album contains music recorded from 2009 to 2011, all polished and remastered ( well re-apprenticed maybe, I can’t really call my process mastering!)

The tracks are…

1. Sunrise – from my currently unavailable 2009 album “What I Did On My Holiday”
2. The Big Calm – from the Cafe Noodle Big Calm project
3. Burning Bandstands – my remix of a track by guitarist Matt Stevens
4. The Featherplucker’s Son – unreleased version from the 2010 Cafe Noodle festival
5. Resolution – from Moo(sic), remixed for this album
6. Lester – an improvised tribute to Les Paul from 2009

The album costs a meager £3 and all proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK. Here it is:

The album will only be available for the nex 10 days so please grab it while you can, enjoy some music, and help a great cause.

Take care,


New album now available – If

Hi all, hope you’re well.

Just a quick post to say that I have released a new album today on Bandcamp! It’s called “IF” and it features 9 tracks improvised live as part of a streamed internet concert earlier this year. All tracks are 100% improvised and 100% solo bass guitar – there are no overdubs, just a tiny bit of editing and audio tweaking.

You can download the whole album, or any tracks you fancy, for free or can pay any price you want.

If you like it please tell someone about it and/or use the Share/Embed function to spread the word.
Thanks for listening!
Take care,
