I think that metallic scraping sound you are referring to Terry are my backing vocals :-))))
nicely developed opening...great vocal timbre...guitars left and right...nice balance...of elements..."I feel no remorse..." a haunting line...liked the build...shredding by 5m....screeching guitar trails into the distance...enjoyed the touches in this mix. (just curious..what is the metallic scraping sound in 4:35 - 4:57? intriguing effect).
Really like this, not sure how i missed it in 2012 but i'm glad you re uploaded, great post punk feel indie feel. Enjoyed and rated. Gibbo
******welkom terug***** I turned up hoping you might have posted something - not heard you since the move - I hope the world treating you right jon and things more settled so you can get back to what you do best - I'm not often around myself,clearly I need to keep a closer watch! jontje
Lemme join the chorus saying "welcome back", Jon! I've missed hearin' ya, you blew me away with your solo pieces and your collabs with Rhys when I first joined the site. Top marks for performance and production on this number, and it's great to see one of my favorite lyricist's back in action....
Great to see more of the old members back on board the site. Is this a studio track ? Drums sound live and the guitars sound mic'ed - nice feel to them.
Like the effect on the guitar on the opening - very indie vibe to the track - distinctive lead vocal - intelligent lyrics which really say something meaningful - sound quality is a bit quiet but the idea shines through - this is the first time i have heard a track from you - love the title by the way - will definitely come back and listen to some more. Thumbs. James
I wondered if you had wandered off into the unknown. Glad you're back!!
I like your sound and I totally dig on your lyrics. Very moody feeling to this track. Especially at the end - a sonic explanation point! YEAH!!!
Hey Stone Dog, liking what I am hearing right off! Welcome back, it's like I never knew ye! Glad to get acquainted! Lyric is sharp and vocals superb! Love the guitar accenting vocal at 1:12! Really nice song Dog! Easy rate!
Very talented fellow you are. My first listen to your music and in addition to this great track, I've listened to several of your others and must say, am a new fan. Time and Tide and Come and Gone are unbelievably good to my ear. Gave a rate to each and will be back to listen to more of your catalog.
Deja 'vu! It's been a long time since hearing your awesome music...
As Deon mentioned, welcome back!
Photogenic Riot Dog- my kind of listen~ yes, you did a great music work here, Jon! Hope all has been going well for you, and it's so good hearing you again! (now stay 'n play!) :) =Bravo= :)
wooo hoooo!!!! Jon, man you're back, one of my all time faves. This is a wednesday morning treat. How the devil are you? This takes me back to all those tracks i used to haveo n file. you have lost none of that atmospheric vibe and i had forgotten how you could twist a lyric into these amazing shapes. OOh welcome back with a killer track :) Big smiles here! - Deon

The Umbilical Cord by Stonedog
Some things you may not have known about umbilical cords:
ü They are composed of Wharton’s jelly and not ordinary skin or tissue
ü They do not contain any nerve cells and so are painless to cut
ü They contain one vein and two arteries
A totally new name to me now from MP3 Unsigned. Stonedog is the bandname of Jon Davies a singer/songwriter (and I presume acoustic guitarist) and also features Adam Gee on bass and Steve Piggott on drums so now you know as much as I do about them eh? Although they bill themselves as rock, Time and Tide doesn't strike you as being particularly rock, it being a very laid back
Let me just say again that Mp3 is full of interesting and very capable artists, and the Reviews that I am doing is just my perspective.
There is alot of genres that i know little about, and would never presume to be an authority on. So this is just how I see them
So first off with this review.
I just descovered Stonedog ( Jon Davis) recently and I must admit I havent heard a bad tun
