Toil!

More ‘sheet’ than ‘press sheet’, click here for a PDF of empty words which accompanies the pathetic letters I send to record labels. Detailed biographical information can be invented by starting a Wikipedia entry on my behalf. I have recently finished album No. 7 – The Landed Gentry. I have started work on the follow-up record which shall probably be a 5 song EP.

Writing about my own music isn’t an easy thing to do as there’s a good dozen other things I’d rather be doing instead. If it helps, the last 10 videos I added to my YouTube favourites playlist were from: NWA; Herbie Hancock;Torche; John Lennon; Kinski; Curiosity Killed The Cat; Massive Attack; Nick Cave; Al Green and The Spencer Davis Group.

Please get in touch if you have any specific requirements or allergies.

Greetings!

TIDINGS! My name is Lyle Christine. The music business makes me sick, so I do things my way – writing, recording, producing, rehearsing imaginary courtroom monologues.

Lyle Christine: an insatiable creative-type, patience of a toddler, radioactive levels of cynicism.

‘Many a little makes a mickle’ or, to put it another way, ‘look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves’. My albums are found here. My current business model is to charge £7.49 per album, 79p per track. Last week’s market strategy was pay-what-you-want. Next week I’ll try a three-tier consumer saturation campaign incorporating loyalty schemes and longevity incentives. When I said ‘the music business makes me sick’, this is what I mean; I am not a salesman.

How do I describe my music? It’s flaky. Not so much in a psoriasis way, more in an unreliable way. Some songsmiths like to change key in the middle of a song; I like to change song in the middle of a song.

And so on, and so on, I’m sure you get the etc.

I played in bands many years ago (e.g.), but my primary focus for a long time has been as a solo musician. It’s entirely possible I’ll play with a new group in the future, if the price is right (i.e. it won’t cost me my mental stability).

I live in Glasgow. I have lived in Dundee. I grew up in the magical kingdom of Fife.

Cheerie-bye!
