Not many record labels kickstart their catalogue with a vinyl-only album that’s been recorded in a garden shed and I’ll bet even fewer use their brother’s GCSE artwork* for the cover image. I shouldn’t wonder if almost none of them name their album after his GSCE art project and I reckon zilch would transcribe a letter from their NanNan for the Lp sleeve notes – but there you have it, back in the year 2000 (AKA the Year Two Hundred) that’s exactly what we did to inaugurate Invisible Spies Records
by unleashing 1,000 copies of Toah Dynamic’s “Movement” to the world.
Band members consisted of: Supreme Vagabond Craftsman, Be My Twin, Kid Acne, Chips for the Poor, 64 Cousins, The Knowledge, Benjamin and Earl Shilton. If we were anything like Wu Tang (which we weren’t), Movement would have been our 36 Chambers, before we slowly disbanded to make a bunch of solo records and offshoot projects.
At the turn of the Willennium we were numb to the digikal frontier, so before our musical endeavours are lost forever by the Wizards of Speed and Time (ie: car boot fares and charity shops), we’re adding the entire Invisible Spies back catalogue to the robotic-boxcar-racetrack for all to enjoy.
Buckle up and hold tight on the corners…

It is now 1:25 and I am in my favourite spot in the window with the sun shining on me; the sky is blue but there are dark clouds hanging around. I hung my boil wash first thing this morning and only just got indoors before it started to rain and hail. I hurriedly fetched it in and draped it round the radiators, and there it is going to stay despite the sunshine.
When I got up last Saturday morning I found my garden shed door wide open, looked inside but there wasn’t anything missing. However, I heard on Monday that David, over the road had his garden shed thieved, all electrical gear missing. There were just garden chairs in mine, plus a mower which would be very heavy, plus the two ceramic ducks which go on my gravel in the Summer. Mind you, they are very heavy but I am only too thankful that they weren’t damaged. Mind you, my squirrel – which was a present last year and which was put underneath my big fir tree on the front lawn has gone AWOL. Still, it did last almost a year and in this day and age, I suppose is an achievement.
