Poems, songs and scraps and  a Book that's rewriting; "If you can remember the Sixties" 

A book that Chronicles the times and some Iconic lives, including his own non iconic status in the London of the 60/70s.  From Flower Power to the hippies revenge: i.e. the punk movement and chemical mayhem and nihilism that follows.


If you can remember the Sixties, you weren't there!

Once upon a time in the West I recorded the Frog Fair, a live 3 day hippy music festival in 1998, with my newly purchased digital mixer and an Adat machine. ...I remember at the end of the festival, feeling I had attended a mini Woodstock...

 Frog Fair 98. And Frog Fair 2: "Healing Time" were both released on cassette.  For a re-mastered digital version contact me: https://soundcloud.com/bird-tribe-919265816/cumusk-at-frog-fair


Recently digitized, from a 40 year old cassette tape, my original song Ringolevio written in 1973 and featuring Phil Taylor, pre-Motorhead. He was the drummer for my band of the same name... This song was inspired by Emmet Grogans description of this New York street game in his book "Ringolevio"  this book also covers the San fran Hippy scene and the diggers.
