    This is a limited (250 copies) pressing of my album "siliconchipsuperstar" on luscious transparent electric blue heavyweight 180gram vinyl.

    **Update: there are less than 50 copies remaining**

    Packaged in a beautifully printed gloss laminated sleeve. Included in the package is a CD of the album and a bonus CD of remixes. Initial copies come with Circuit3 button badges and stickers.

    Features 10 tracks mastered by Richard Dowling (Paul McCartney,The Waterboys, Motorhead, Sparks, UNKLE, David Bowie, Eurythmics).

    "siliconchipsuperstar" is a stunning mix of synthy electropop songs all wrapped up in bleeps, beats & synthy ear candy. Circuit3 is a siliconchipsuperstar. This is electropop synthpop influenced by the great and the good of the classic 1978-1982 era of electronic pop. The digital precision of the 21st century is married with the classic analog beats, drones, arpeggiators and melody lines under a pop male vocal and lyric which takes no prisoners.

    “"just far and away better than so much of the material I've heard in this genre... it's a huge step up from being a bar band performer to potentially achieving international acclaim, and that's exactly what he's poised for here with Circuit3...Keep an eye and ear on this one- I see good things for Circuit3 in the future and some forward-thinking label really ought to sign this act” Chain D.L.K. Album Review

    Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk) collaborator iEuropean says “I am currently working on a remix for Circuit3 and had the pleasure of listening to the finished album.....wow! Best album I have heard in the past 10 years”

    The Electricity Club said "‘siliconchipsuperstar’ is classic styled synthpop made by someone weaned on classic synthpop. This well-produced album is undoubtedly a labour of love and while there are echoes of the past like Clarke, Foxx, Jones, Numan or Dolby, the album is full of futuristic sounds that warble off and on."

Track Name: New Man
Moonlight through your window pane you’re nervous and it’s getting late
Could this be the end of me? You’re anxious and you cannot see

Dripping walls paper peeling hopeless case waits outside
Fantasy slow revealing they don’t know what you hide

Becoming a new man a good man a younger man again
Try to be a saviour a soldier like you were back then
Becoming a good guy a wise guy well you don’t have to pay
You’re gonna be a hard man a smooth man if that what it takes

You won’t play their stupid games so when they put you in the frame
Take them on and you’ll see for sure and kill the fear you felt before

Tell yourself nothing else matters in this game you’ll decide
Fantasy slow revealing they don’t know what you hide

Becoming a new man a good man a younger man again
Try to be a saviour a soldier like you were back then
Becoming a good guy a wise guy well you don’t have to pay
You’re gonna be a hard man a smooth man if that what it takes

Becoming a new man a good man
Becoming a new man a good man
Becoming a new man a good man
Becoming a new man a good man
Track Name: Ghost Machine
I watch the water wash over my body
My days are like rain they leave no trace
My days are like rain they leave no trace

The night is cold and it covers me in sadness
It scares me to death and dares to give in
It scares me to death give in to the madness

A last glance at the rising tide her warm hands drag me deep inside
Fierce and free she welcomes me I feel complete this perfect sleep
The part of me you’ll never see leads me to the ghost machine

My heart is broken my spirit is dying
My tears tell the tale all of over my face
My tears tell the tale but no-one is crying

A last glance at the rising tide her warm hands drag me deep inside
Fierce and free she welcomes me I feel complete this perfect sleep
The part of me you’ll never see leads me to the ghost machine
Track Name: Those Who Were Dancing
An error in your measure will amplify the fall and overwrite the failure
Expect the unexpected and through the signal breaking try to stay connected
Feel the sound of thunder no-one here is faking you try to make things better

And those who were dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music
And those who were dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

People fooled by theories going with the flow challenge what they tell you
Scientist will show you only what she knows and water has no memory

And those who were dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music
And those who were dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music
Track Name: Reverberate
Memory reverberates sideways glance indicates
The voice of the road not taken
The charm of the life not lived
Carries on inside your heart

Diffuse into colours bright and shadow dark
Refuse to be a passenger and make no mark
The effort at integration will leave you lost in the dark
It leads you on leads you on

Resonate embrace the sound
Celebrate all we’ve found
The picture that they want to show you
Is not the one that you drew long ago so long ago

Memory reverberates
Track Name: Darkroom
I wanna take you to my darkroom
I wanna take you to my darkroom
Black and white blue and red colour rush around your head in my darkroom

Let’s take a photograph of me and you
A risky photograph come on I’m daring you
Lose your friends we’re almost there


Come dancing in the infrared in my darkroom

It’s just a polaroid nothing new
Something we could avoid if you wanted to
No-one else can see us now rules get broken anyhow in my darkroom
Track Name: One Night In Tokyo
"I've brought you to hell with me, I'm so sorry"

You will not want to follow cos I’m going down to a place downtown where I can survive alone
Lose words in bad translation running through my head
Gonna try just one more time to connect with you

I know something that you won’t want to see I forget everything you said to me
I know something that you won’t like to see I forget everything you said to me
Lose yourself show me where to go nights are long in Tokyo

You will not want to follow cos we’re doing down to place downtown where we can survive alone

I know something that you won’t want to see
I forget everything you said to me
Lose yourself show me where to go nights are long in Tokyo

You will not want to follow
Track Name: Blue Diary
Just between you and me and your diary

Under a blue cover lies words from your heart
Turn back the pages it’s time to depart
Down the track to stations you missed in the past
Platform from a journey you never did start

So just between you and me and your diary

Thumbed through the pages I knew it was wrong
I never expected you’d be so long
Waiting for an answer and when nothing arrived
You’d write it down completely words dressed as lies

So just between you and me and your diary
Track Name: In Your Shoes
I walked a mile in your shoes crossed a line in your shoes
The answer that they gave you was never gonna save you tonight

I ran for hours to catch you searched for days to find you
And the spark that lit our lives up was put out overnight no reason why

I’ll dance a while in your shoes play the fool just like you
And light up the sky guide our way home

I’ll catch your spark tonight light up the dark tonight I’ll catch your spark

I’ll catch your spark fight back the dark tonight I’ll catch your spark

I walked a mile in your shoes crossed a line in your shoes
The answer that they gave you was never gonna save you tonight

I’ll catch your spark fight back the dark tonight
I’ll catch your spark I’ll catch your spark
Track Name: Running Out Of Time
When you’re working for the man is he giving you your due
Do you have to toe the line in most everything you do
Is he giving you the space to think of what you wanna do

Are you burning at both ends are you writing your big hit
Are you giving it a thought and are you chomping at the bit
Are you waiting for a sign is this really it is this really it

Are you running out of time?

Have you promised you the earth did they send you to the moon
What they promise is so good but it never does come true
While you dream and make a plan and it ends up in a ruin

Are you running out of time?

When you look out at the world do you wanna jump right off
Are you tired of the game do you even know the rules
And you try to draw a line but they never let you go
And they want to hear you say that you’ll never go away

Are you running out of time?

And we’ll tell you when to stay then we’ll tell you where to go
When we trick you into hate to distract you from the love
And we’ll tell you what to like and we’ll tell you what to do
And you’re never getting off cos no matter what you do

So are you running out of time?
Track Name: Hundred Hands
Perfect look perfect style
Beauty and beast reconciled
To patronise to condescend
Constructed here for you and me to play pretend

Struck down by a hundred hands shut down by a thousand words
Cut down by a million lies struck down by a hundred hands

Find his mark know his lines
Effortless by design
Open heart in disguise
Actor plays his part understudy dies

Struck down by a hundred hands shut down by a thousand words
Cut down by a million lies struck down by a hundred hands

Take the part make it mine
Change the script cut the line
First night nerves are overcome
Critics words are cheap now everybody’s one

Struck down by a hundred hands shut down by a thousand words
Cut down by a million lies struck down by a hundred hands
