Dear UM,

Great are your stories

They are excellent and first class

We are a group of visual artists called Blaumeise in Braunschweig

We collect chickens on paper. That means we incite people to draw chickens

on paper and sent it to us. We then show the drawing on our website.

You can draw one, two or more chickens. ….. please …...please

We appreciate your chickens

We are currently trying to create a gallery for prominent people, the " Promi-netten"

There is lack of such dignity on the site.


Thank you

Three times Kikerike

Funky dog.

Nigel Cooke

This guy's stuff rocks me again and again and again.


Me and Phil had a chat about the fact that a lot of people seem to live inside a kind of bullshit dreamworld last night. I guess the point is obvious but it was refreshing to hear his mentalist worldview was so similar, and was experienced subjectively in much the same way. I think Phil then said he had been studying molecular science, because he wanted to start at the beginning. I told him he was living in a bullshit dreamworld. I dunno, I can't recall the conversation very clearly. We were quite caned.

Casio No!

I bought one of these in Resale the other week. It's a beautiful thing but of course the MFU has to have it, so it'll be trucking off to the Moonbase before long, and I'll have fifty notes to spend on Stella. I spoil that girl.

Do I pass on too many things to the Man From Uranus?

Bumskipper 8 released today.

Um Bumskipper 8

The Loukas Extract.

I haven’t actually heard The Caretaker, but this is how I imagine it sounds.


If the future is a jackboot stamping on a human face forever then the only potential crumb of comfort is that they cannot make us want to be dominated or destroyed. Our fascist overlords can bend us to their will but our eyes will betray the fact that our humanity is essentially sovereign.


This is about being taken to another place.

My Fatal Floor.

Sometimes it can be hard to live up to oneself after midnight round mine.

Offworld Labour.

Soundtrack to construction/engineering project in space.

Andy Likes The Ducks.

Music to watch ducks by, or watch someone watching ducks, with the sun in your eyes.

Sick Tune.

If we had to sing an anthem for our race we would look like Frank Lampard moving his lips about uncertainly during God Save The Queen, much less get it in tune.

Drunk Ghost.

This one has a light touch.

This End.

More interrogation of the art and the artist by the artist and his art, with teasing and confusion.


Did you see that thing on TV where Dan Cruickshank visited some Ethiopian monastery and the priest let him have a quick gander at an ancient religious text which seemed to point to the role of psilocybin mushrooms in the visions of the first Christians?

Wriggle On.

Tribal acid theme for movement.


Theme for cultivated spot, a la Voltaire.


You would have thought that Phil and I knew better.
