“Psychedelic 60s gone noir cabaret with 80s goth production: watery guitars, icy keys and vintage Bowie-esque vocals.”
Delarue – New York Music Daily
This reissued version of Scary Poppins features an alternate (previously unreleased) version of Scapegoat. All of the songs have been remixed and remastered to increase the clarity of the vocals and instrumentation. Scary Poppins was originally released in November 2010. “If you mix the elements from Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Syd Barrett and Radiohead, you’ll get this music, in the most creative way… In addition to the comparisons that have been ...

The amount of soundcloud followers you have and the lack of listens or hits you have on your songs proves how much of a narcissistic, callous agenda those fuckers have. I deal with the same shit and would rather have two followers who listen compared to fifty who are hoping to get noticed on my followers list for their own benefit.

The recurring theme of hope is more noticeable than ever on my new album and it's life saving properties are illustrated particularly well in this song.

Private Playground is the 11th track from the album 'Advice To The Wayfarer' (2013). All parts by Rowan Galagher except for the electric piano which was written and performed by E.D. Lyrics: It’s been far too long Between the breaths I need That my minds already gone Hold on to me I’m alright if I can be with you again You’re like Oxygen And I’ll be alright If I can hold you tight And I hear a sound beyond serene As the tides recede I can finally...

A new recording of an old song. I hope I do justice to the version originally performed by my old band Generic.

Descriptions using the word 'epic' and comparisons to Bowie have continued with this song from my new album.

Everafter is the 12th track from the album 'Advice To The Wayfarer' (2013). All parts written and performed by Rowan Galagher. Lyrics: Life gets better now Now that you’re gone I’ve abandoned you and Opted instead for song I opened the cage And I flew away But I left behind Others who couldn’t find their way out They stood their ground For a while The world here comes and goes As fast as rain Holding on to dear life gets tiring today Coping now I...

Introduction
I'm the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist behind the psychedelic / folk noir / art rock / neoclassical / gothic post-punk project known as The Mad Pride. It has been described as haunting and ominous like Syd Barrett and David Bowie collaborating on a Tim Burton film soundtrack. Comparisons are often made to Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, Frank Zappa, Erik Satie, Opeth, David Sylvian and Leonard Cohen. There are 50 free mp3 downloads (4 albums) available at www.soundcloud.com/the-mad-pride
