Missed him the first time around.

Hey Tom, you're really bashing it - great - v. exciting; so, musically, any firm favourites? I've had a listen, but I guess the question should be, if Under the Volcano was music - what sort would it HAVE to be? Lyrical, discordant, brash?

In terms of the colours, I reckon it's time you started doing some colour sampling from your scans in Photoshop and publishing some must have 'swatches' and putting them together; also, in terms of textures and 'bump maps' is it chalky, parched surfaces? Is it the glaucous fleshy blue-greens of cacti? You get the picture - start 'essentialising' and put the music, the colour palette, the textures, the shapes etc. together in one place.

Of course, there's the skull, which I assume has to feature as a major motif ... ?
