Oriental Flute Mix: drum and bass, dubstep and breakbeat

June 17, 2018

We’ve made music for many years, generally being ignored by everyone. However, we think our music is good and should be heard by a few more people so…

Here’s a mix of tunes from Secret Archives of the Vatican and Thousand Yard Prayer.  They all feature Arabian or Persian flutes, hence the cunning title. There’s plenty of Croydon bass filth in the mix too. Some dip into middle eastern tuning systems and rhythms but there’s nothing too scary in there.

Please listen and share.

Thank you!

Hard Dubs for Troubled Times by the Talking Dog.

April 21, 2018

The second re-release from The Talking Dog this week…This one was also a limited edition CDR, originally released at Greenbelt Festival in 2004. The Iraq war was still a contentious issue. The sleeve notes said this:
These tracks are the solo works of The Talking Dog (aka Peter Sharpe) 
They reflect some of my feelings about the war in Iraq and the dissonant experience of living in a Babylonian system whilst finding my true identity in Christ as a citizen of the Kingdom of Yahweh. 
The nations lie, cheat and murder. Truth and righteousness are far from us. It seems that many Christians are happy to commit idolatry in their allegiances with Caesar and Mammon. 
Have we forgotten the requirements of the Gospel of Peace? 
Did we ever really know them?

The Beautiful Names of God Volume 1

April 20, 2018

Back in 2003, we released this collection of tunes on CDR and sold it at festivals. Some of the tunes are on other releases also but a couple are different mixes.


Militant and Triumphant by The Talking Dog

April 19, 2018

We’ve just released a reissue of a great album, Militant and Triumphant, by The Talking Dog. It was originally released in 2005 on CDR.

It’s a great collection of UK roots and dub, all with a gospel flavour.

The Talking Dog is also a member of the Secret Archives of the Vatican live band under his alias, Peter Sharpe.
