About The End Springs

The End Springs is my project of rare lo-fi minimal guitar soundscapes. Mostly 1st takes & with everything left in. Psych (folk) guitarist playing experimental & strange pieces. Improvisations using a acoustic & electric guitar, noise, loops, soft synths, PAL198X analog synth, Korg Monotribe & Korg Monotron Delay synth. Worked over sequences recorded on a Tascam analog 414 mk II 4 track.

New End Springs release…..

So I have a new release out (11/01/17) via the rather splendid Reverb Worship. The last time I was on this label was way back in 2008 and it’s good to be back. The new collection is called The Mystery Pinecone Tape and is very special to me.

The collection is loosely based around the TV show Twin Peaks. Maybe my take on an alternative Twin Peaks world. Each tune was written in the order in which they appear on the cd. They were written and recorded on a Tascam 4 track sometime in the past. Exact date unknown. A beaten acoustic guitar, a delay pedal and natural distortion were used to relay the sounds to tape.

It’s limited to 40 copies and looks rather nice…

End Springs Instagram…

Just to let the followers of my Instagram profile know, my account (endsprings) has been hacked and I currently have no control of it!

I have contacted Instagram through their help centre, many times now, but yet to receive any actual help.

If any spam is used on my profile, please be assured it is not me. Hopefully Instagram will help soon…(I have a feeling they won’t)!

I am also not “Josh Walker”!!!

 

***** JANUARY 2017 UPDATE *****

I now have control back of my Instagram account! 

 

I find it incredible that people are that sad and have such empty lives that they have to hack other peoples accounts!
