"Consequences" is Peter's thirtieth solo studio album of original songs.  

Ten jittery new pieces which stretch the boundaries of the form.  Some are wordy, or about words - and miscommunication, mishearing, misapprehension.  Around another corner, lives and actions are overheard, overseen, characters stalked and surprised. 

Sometimes these pieces stray into the territory of the short story or screenplay - something is happening just outside the frame, just beyond the range of vision. Distanced from the norms of songs though they are, a strong narrative thread runs through the heart of each recording. 

The instrumentation centres on electric guitars and a variety of pianos. Percussion is sparse. The occasional interjection of other instrumental colours enhances rather than expands the sonic picture. Central to the realisation of all the songs are authoritative vocal performances in lead, backing and choral roles. 

Once again the whole thing is written, performed, sung and recorded entirely solo.  "Consequences" is a weighty addition to Peter's body of work.

1. Eat my Words
2. Bite my Tongue
3. That Wasn't What I Said
4. Constantly Overheard
5. New Pen-pal
6. Close to Me
7. All the Tiredness
