Never Let Us Go – Jones & Dwyer

January 17th, 2018 § Comments Off on Never Let Us Go – Jones & Dwyer § permalink

This is my song, “Never Let Us Go”. It was re-mixed with my brother, guest artist and “Loop-Meister” Mark Dwyer, in 1992, in Hammerwood, East Sussex.
Mark and I created many of the loops that were used on Duran Duran’s Wedding album. I loved going to the club on Saturday night after an afternoon tweaking at the farm!

Duran Duran-ish Jones Songs 1992-1995

January 14th, 2018 § Comments Off on Duran Duran-ish Jones Songs 1992-1995 § permalink


Songs I wrote and recorded, from the final weeks of Wedding album production, through Alan Frew’s Hold On (recorded in L.A.), and DD’s Thank You (Battersea, Antibes, Los Angeles), that take me back to those days when I was commuting between Hammerwood and Battersea. They are a warm reminder of how much Simon, Nick, John, Warren, Sterling, Spike, Stan, and others!, were a big influence on me, my music and my life.
