STEPPING SOFTLY INTO… SUMMER

7 July 2011

The skulking behemoth that is Soft Riot, one JJD (me) behind stacks of hodge-podge equipment is safe and sound with two shows into the year 2011.

UPCOMING LIVE PERFORMANCES

6 June 2011

While the frequency of content submissions to this site has been somewhat sucked dry in recent months, that energy has been displaced elsewhere. Displaced and multiplied. After getting a live set together, I’m very happy to announce two SOFT RIOT live performances within this coming month in London, England. I’ve only done one before and […]

‘YOUR SECRET LIGHT SHINES AT NIGHT” PROMOTIONAL VIDEO

25 April 2011

The promotional video to “Your Secret Light Shines At Night” has been premiered today, after some ideas came about to put some visuals to the song that represent the mood of the song. Slightly psychedelic, slightly goofy, a some what frightening with a mash up of science fiction visualized through the eyes of Kenneth Anger, […]

VEXXED LAUNCHES THIS FRIDAY

4 April 2011

Three years is a long time but some things only get chipped away in tiny little increments during that time. Years ago when time seemed to be more abundant and the inner critic less prominent it was far more common to see me sending numerous hours bashing out strange stories and surreal episodes on a […]

A SHORT MENTION

18 March 2011

Here’s a short mention from on the online magazine Everything Is Chemical: “Anyone else hear/feel that “Ike Yard vibe”? If you like this project (which I don’t see why you wouldn’t), Jack Duckworth has another (main) project called Savage Furs. They sound like a mix between “modern Goth/Punk-Rock”, Oingo Boingo, and Tuxedomoon..” www.everythingischemical.blogspot.com/2011/03/check-into-soft-riot.html

1 March 2011

NO LONGER STRANGER OUT NOW!

17 January 2011

Well isn’t this something. A Soft Riot update. After a few years of on and off activity while lots of energy was poured into other things an unexpected train of thought struck me about a month ago to finish up and complete a bunch of half finished tracks built over the last two years that […]
