I will put these new “Doppleganger” paintings in the “Art section” when I get some time to photograph and download them. Look out for a book about my art next year from TIMELESS BOOKS. Also I’ve got a Korg Sampler keyboard thingy which I will be using on my forthcoming CDR album of 30 copies only called “The Black Star Recordings” This will be the greatest album ever made. Oh aye indeed. No messing. Christmas is coming Val is getting fat. It’s all the chocolate, I must stop it. That and the booze. Mind you I’ve not had a cig for over 6 months now, neither has our Gail. Saving a bleedin’ fortune, I’m not kidding, also I can breath propely without coughing my guts up every morning. Oh, Gail has got this program thingy on her laptop called “Dragon Speak”? Anyway you can just talk to it and it types what you say, so that novel that I’ve been planning for ages. It’s very weird. But, you like weird don’t you…………I know I do.

“Mantras For An Incognizant World” is the final, full-length installation from WYRM. The project is now defunct and all activities have ceased. 11 years the archetype had been explored and exploited–new territories will be mapped out with Solumenata.
This farewell incarnation of WYRM were a stellar line-up comprised of Allan Zane & Liz Lang (founding members), Val Denham (artist and musician extraordinaire), PBK (veteran “noise-ambient” composer), Thomas Park (drone master-musician known for his work as Mystified), the pure genius of the Aural Surrealists Matthew Amundsen (Surface Hoar) and Sid Redlin (Boron Nuzzle, Le Scrambled Debutante, et al.), and the obscure fringe-artist Joey Day (UPC).
“Mantras For An Incognizant World” is a reflection upon/true testament of our times–mediations for a world TRULY asleep and LOST…
Okay, this is the new album, or rather I should say “double album” as this CDR contains almost 80 minutes of brand new material by myself the artist Val Denham.
It is titled “BLUELANDS”
A couple of the songs are in earlier, but very different versions, such as “Individual”, “Do You know Who I Am?” and “As I walked out one Evening”. These new reworkings are radically different. The rest of the 25 songs are brand new unheard material. I have signed and numbered the covers and the actual CDR.
There are ONLY 30 copies available, there will never be anymore unless this album is released officially by a label in the future. So, first come first served. These limited edition releases always sell out and then end up being sold for silly money when people realise that when I say “30 only” I really mean it.
Okay. I was going to do a nice blue photo of myself naked for the cover, but I’ve decided that seeing as last time with the “Mad” album, the hand painted covers were so successful, maybe I should do another hand painted job instead. So I’m going to hand paint 30 blank card CD covers. Pray for me. Ooh, you are going to love this one, I just know it. Oh and Pedro, don’t worry I’ve saved one for you sugarplum.
I’ve added some new images in the artwork section of Tranart. You’ll have to search for them as all the images are in alphabetical order. You can enlarge any image on this website by clicking on the image itself.
Here’s a new one called “Poison Nectar”.

About QUEEN LEAR:
Anarcocks and PSBEUYS are pleased to announce the birth of QUEEN LEAR — a collaborative trans-Atlantic studio project produced by PSBEUYS featuring Massimo & Pierce (of Black Sun Productions), Val Denham, and Andrew Zealley.
Amanda Lear motivates QUEEN LEAR, feeds its curiosity, drives its desires. From Amanda’s early appearances—as the cover model on Roxy Music’s For Your Pleasure/on the arm of Berlin-period David Bowie/as companion and muse to Salvador Dali—to surreal dance floors 1970s and ’80s, Italian tee-vee, game show hijinx, ‘tween-age dreams: Amanda Lear generates I-Dentity. Impossible to ignore. “Follow Me.”
Queen Lear is growing out of its head. Taking root in Sweet Revenge (Ariola-Eurodisc, 1978), sticky finger buds and black holes, pretty boys and mother.
“I just can’t make you out. Are you real – or am I dreaming? This is all very confusing. Until, you start, sing-ing.” (“Enigma,” 1978).

I’ve added images in “Reviews” of my limited edition CD-R’s. The forthcoming release is entitled “Bluelands” and should be available this summer. I’m still working on it. It features contributions from Oli Novadnieks, Farmacia (a new radically different version of “Individual” from “Raw Powder) and Demian of O Paradis.
Here’s those Farmacia boys with copies of my “MAD” album.
Farmacia can be heard collaborating with myself on the track “Mandy” in the MUSIC section of Tranart. This song is to be released on a forthcoming compilation album on Vanitycase Records.
I love Farmacia and they love me.
