Are you looking for Pilchard, pioneer of bolloxcore, shitnoise, and hard guff? Good. You found him. He’s me.

I’ve been writing and releasing music as Pilchard since about 1997 when I first encountered Bob the Builder who has a cat of the same name.

Prior to that, I was always buggering about with something noisy; taking stuff apart, fixing it, messing with it, hitting it and so on. I still do that now but in a slightly more organised fashion.

You probably didn’t come here for my life story, so here’s some music:

King of Boscombe

Pilchard – King of Boscombe album art

King of Boscombe is my most recent release to date. It was kind of an accident. I was thinking about that difficult second album (which is almost complete, by the way) but got sidetracked and made this instead.

This EP is basically a sandwich made of breakbeat bread with a filling of downtempo hip hop beats.


  1. King of Boscombe
  2. Two Headed Bullet
  3. Tiny Raptor
  4. Made of Bees
  5. King of Boscombe (Memoraphile Remix)

Pilchard – Amy album art

My debut album, Amy (named after my Daughter), was released in 2006. It was mostly written in 2002/03. It contains all sorts of weirdness. I’ll let you discover it for yourself.


  1. Miss Conception
  2. Used to Be
  3. Fear and Loathing (in Burgess Hill)
  4. Convolution Revolution
  5. Amy
  6. Putaway
  7. Screaming Abdabs
  8. What Clipping
  9. Non Cosmopolitan
  10. I Store
  11. They Come the Harder
  12. 4000 Orgasms

Is that not enough?

You really want more? Okay, the rest of my music can be found on my Pilchard music website and/or on Righteous Robot Records.

Like many musicians, Pilchard doesn’t make much from streamed and/or downloaded music. If you feel you would like to help out and you can afford to do so, you can donate to the cause using the methods below.
