We do music, words and pictures

A bit about me…

We are stickylabel which produces the sound works of Geoffrey Datson;
spoken word poetry, instrumental music and song.

Geoffrey Datson began his music career in the usual way, in bands in the seventies and early eighties (Surf Side Six, Samurai Trash, Apocalypstik), with a couple of hit singles to his credit.

His music draws on influences from folk music, classical masters and ethnic sources, and combining this with his love of rock and the irreverence of punk, constructs sweeping aural landscapes. Datson is an original new voice among Australian electronic composers.
"With his haunting and mysterious music, Geofrrey Datson invites comparisons to the electronic compositions of Jarre, Morricone and Zimmer, and most especially the Coppola score for Apocalypse Now. Moody, exotic and stylish, ... the perfect soundtrack for deep textures and moral ambivalence." Anthony O'Neill
