ZOGAM release Melbourne Winter 2012 on bandcamp.com
To differentiate these releases from the other other ZOG tracks, as they are quite different in style, they are released under the ZOGAM moniker. They are the result of some winter nights spent playing the old electric guitar, and then experimenting with the results with various delays and time stretching software.

For a limited period, free for download. Then I'll start asking some dosh for it.

Buy or listen to ZOGAM: Melbourne Suburban Winter 2012

UPDATE: free download period ended
Price is AU$7 from bandcamp.com, paying via the somewhat annoying Paypal, also available in FLAC format only in Bitcoins (price set to be about $USD6): COINDL bitcoin link here

New Bandcamp FLAC release of ZOG older tracks: fragments from the past 1998-2002

OK, I'll confess I have not done any original music for years now. Yes I am slack. But as my previously released stuff is scattered around in a range of formats and sites, here's a "compilation" release of some of the stuff I still think bears up to listening to now. Available for a nominal fee on the most excellent FLAC/mp3 download site, bandcamp.com.
