About the artist
Brian Fattorini first picked up a guitar in 1983. He spent most of his informative years in the Yorkshire seaside town of Scarborough before moving to London in 1989. At that point most of the work on his first album 'Levels II' was complete. Of 'Mynd' he says "this reflects upon everything that was going on in my life at that time addressing the uncertainties & questions of life. The lyrics were difficult to write & became the first meaningful song I ever completed. The circling lights were a reference to an electronic circuit of LED's I built which sequenced in a circular pattern & formed the centrepiece of my rather psychedelic bedsit!"
In mid 1990 'Levels' was released during a time of heightened experimentation and financial hardship. 'Inspiration' contains a section at the end originally know as 'Finger Mouse' which was performed live at gigs throughout the Firkin chain of pubs in London.
'The Missing 3rd Album' was never officially released and marked a return for the most part to conventional songs including 'Small World' which is the story of a hitchhiking trip around Europe. "At one point I got a lift and was driven into the countryside by this weird person. My hand stayed firmly on my pen-knife until I was finally able to get out of the car. I slept the night in a field by the side of the main autobahn & woke in the morning to see something moving through the grass heading straight for me. I leapt up very quickly and to this day have no idea what it was!"
In the mid 2000's he mainly wrote soundtrack music for VHS, DVD's and internet trailers of a kiting theme culminating in the 2004 CD release 'Music 4 Kites'.
Remaining tracks surfaced on the EP album 'The Incomplete 5th' in 2008 including the heavily techno-centric 'Binary+'.
What of the future? "I prefer playing live nowadays and there are a number of songs yet to be recorded plus new material keeps popping into existence all the time. I think it will be a return to the simpler one man & his acoustic guitar reminiscent of warm summers spent busking the café terraces of Amsterdam.."
