About Atheist Advent

Originally I wrote and recorded a song each day during Advent. It was a singing advent calendar. After a while life gets too busy to do one every day. These years, I just do what I can. But hopefully there will also be guest stars and collaborators this year to keep things going.

A lot of these songs went into the band REASON BREEDS MONSTERS, which is currently sleeping, but you should do and listen to our music anyway, and also watch out for the last three tracks we have recorded, which are totally fantastic and extremely lively. We’ll put them up on the site very soon.

You can follow the adventures of some of the band members in the following places.

  1. I just wanted to comment briefly that I’m enjoying listening to 2009′s songs in preparation for this year’s (they’re much better presents than those cardboard Advent calendars I used to get at school). Thanks for linking to the Scattering, as well–I hope you don’t mind if I spotlight Atheist Advent on my blog for the holiday season too!

    Best wishes,

      Thanks! But listen – consider if that cardboard school Advent calendar also had a nasty, nasty stale chocolate behind each window … could these songs still compare?

      I don’t think so.

        Hmmm – some of us keep replacing the chocolates with shiny new ones…

          There’s profound wisdom embodied in a recycled Advent calendar.

            i agree. im recycling one this year from last year, one i quite liked, stuck the doors down with tape. most have popped back open and the kids arnt the least bit interested in opening the rest. dilutes the mystery, wisdom enough.

  2. Saw you in the street earlier outside the One Stop Shop. After we stopped, I said I’d have a gander at your stuff. I particularly like Jabbering Away In Their Own Language and Christmas Postal. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the month will hold… It’s a shame I won’t make your show tomorrow. If I wasn’t doing a gig of my own I’d definitely be there.

    Look at what I do in my band!: http://www.skyrocketjack.co.uk

      Sky Rocket Jack has a lovely sound and a lovely website; and the images of C90s are bringing a tear to my eye. ‘Argos’ is a beautiful name. Why did they name it after Antiquity?
