It possesses the intimacy and freedom that anything can happen that you commonly hear on bedroom recordings, yet with a much better sound quality. The music is twisted singer songwriting, tripped out psych folk, where instruments are tweaked, vocals stretched and torn yet it still remains highly personal. Links can be drawn to the acid soaked revelry of the Flaming Lips, the harmonic niceties of the Beach Boys and the drifting groove of tripped out Floyd jams. In Incigneri’s tunes sounds are bouncing off each other, colliding and floating off into the ether yet no matter how noisy or chaotic things become he never loses sight of his jagged pop edged ancestry. At times it descends into some very strange territory with Incigneri demonstrating his ability to craft interesting soundscapes, yet in the main these are merely platforms for his engaging, idiosyncratic and half twisted songs. Bob Baker Fish, CYCLIC DEFROST

“Feral Media are one of those record labels I just love ’cause you have no idea what something’s gonna sound like till you hear it… this, awesome, Flaming Lips, Ween, Mercury Rev are the first 3 bands to come to mind. (Nov 2004)

Electro pop of a high standard. Something like what the Flaming Lips would have been if they started out as the band they are now.” Mess + Noise

A trip waiting to happen” Gaz-Eta (Poland)


David’s recordings come direct from his bedroom in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs, via some intensive mixing in Northcote and then mastering in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

David began songwriting after hearing Pink Floyd.

“My earliest recordings were done using three different tape players – two playing at once and the third recording them,” he says.

Working with a simple four-track set-up, an out-of-date computer, inadequate sound card and headphones, David managed to put together the concept album I Sat On The Corner of A Page of The Novel of My Mind.

“I recorded this project at home on my PC, some of the parts were taken off tapes I’d recorded on the four track years ago but most of it was done in ’03,” he says. “For these tracks I used a Casio keyboard, a Roland synth, a Strat copy, an SM58 mic and a Pentium II.”
