2nd February 2021: “Carbon”, New Cover Song.

New release from Nebulae Music

Joseph Bagwell has re-released an old “lost” album from 2014 titled “Carbon”. The album sees it’s re-release through the Nebulae Music catalog. It was recorded between April and June 2014 and released circa July 2014, later on in the year Joseph had felt he disliked the work and removed it from stores. After a recent re listen he realized he had been too harsh on the work and felt it was a decent set of music, hence the re-release. You can purchase “Carbon” by Nebulae Music (cat. MM008) from bandcamp here.


New cover by Joseph Bagwell – “Nutshell” by Alice In Chains

Joseph Bagwell has also released a new solo acoustic cover on YouTube, as seen below.

You can also download the mixed audio as WAV or MP3 from the Free Downloads page.


That is all from us for now, make sure to stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page for upcoming news!

We Want You!

Marionette’s Manifesto is looking for a small group of artists who make Rock (Art, Alternative, Folk, Indie, Blues) music.


Are you inspired by bands such as Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Genesis, Radiohead or Soundgarden?

Then send us some demos today to contact.marionettesmanifesto@gmail.com (please see our demo policy before sending anything). Marionette’s Manifesto is less of a label and more to be a collective of like minded musicians who make similar music. We would be working together to promote each others releases whilst retaining the rights and income from the music we make.


Goals:

  • To Network with like minded independent bands and solo artists and promote each other’s music, helping each other grow our fan base
  • To promote the music of said artists through the website and social media. The artists music is actually distributed by them through an online store (i.e. bandcamp), they retain all the rights and income from the music.
  • To release periodic label compilations compiled and released by the artists themselves. We all choose our favourite songs released on the label to go onto the compilation. This is then shared by each member so they will not only be promoting their own music but also the music of the other artists.

What i am offering to the artists:

  • Each artist will receive a free CD tray inlay to be included in their album download. An optional Cassette J-Card can be created for them also. These would be included in the album downloads as extra so that fans can burn or record their own CD or cassette copy.
  • Free optional mastering of their music.
  • A Facebook group and discord server to congregate with the other artists in, sharing demos of works in progress, finding other label artists to collaborate with on new projects etc…

If you think your music would fit in here or you want to learn more then please drop me an email or message me through the new Facebook page.

I look forward to hearing your music,

Joseph Bagwell

Opening 23yr old Laser Discs

My stepdad kindly gave me his modest collection of Laser Discs, an old obsolete home video format that began in 1978 and persisted for about 42 years. The format ended up being overshadowed by the much more affordable VHS and later in 1996 the highly innovative Digital Video Disc or DVD as it is more commonly known.

One thing i find interesting about Laser Discs is that as the name of the product suggests the data is read by a laser, much like a DVD however it is an analog signal and not digital. The picture quality is not great but picture quality is not what charms me about the format, if i wanted ultra high definition i would invest in the newest format of UHD and get a 4k TV. What i feel i enjoy about the product is mostly the artwork on some of the releases.

Much like vinyl records the artwork on Laser Discs can be really nice, mainly the gate fold releases that have extra information and art for the film. This is also a reason i began collecting vinyl records. What CDs, DVDs and Digital streaming makes up for in audio/video quality it lacks in artwork, a very important part of any media release in my opinion.

Unlike vinyl however where if you get a good record with really nice packaging, high end production and and really good turntable and hifi setup records can sound almost indistinguishable from a lossless digital file (although personally i think the whole belief that they sound better than digital is just snake oil) however with a Laser Disc the video quality will be nothing to marvel at by today’s standards. On top of this discs can contract disc rot or bronzing which will make things a lot worse for the disc.

A Laser Disc in my collection with severe bronzing/rot. Luckily pretty much all the discs are in very good condition, this is the exception.

In the collection where two unopened Laser Discs: “Independence Day” and “Just Heroes”. Video at the beginning of this article features a section where i open these Laser Discs, both which appear to have been released in 1996 and are roughly around the same age as i.

Looking forward to expanding my collection a bit and may do some more Laser Disc content in the future if people find this to be interesting.

12/20 Update

Also been working on a new album…

The new upcoming album is a my first Nebulae Music concept album. Set in the “future” on a manned mission to Saturn’s moon, Titan. Below is some possible artwork for the album (original photographs by NASA) which i am hoping to release early next year.

And finally, i got me acting chops on:

In November’s episode of #new13 i landed a cast role as Ted after the original actor mysteriously disappeared off the face of the earth after looking up at the ceiling. Check out “The Women Under The Roof” below:

Aight, that is all…
