Release of Chris Duggleby’s new Album ‘Studio Valiumm’ and Scenic Prostitution of Cape Town

Release of Chris Duggleby’s new Album ‘Studio Valiumm’ and Scenic Prostitution of Cape Town : Yes when it comes to promoting the fantastic views around Cape Town I have to admit I am a bit of a whore. In this week’s article I will share with you some rather impressive sights around our glorious sunny coastline and celebrate the launch on iTunes of my new album ‘Studio Valiumm

Before I share with you the pretty pics let me get the commercial out of the way. My new album ‘Studio Valiumm’ has been available via iTunes for a couple of days now and if you would like to help my pension fund the link to download it is here. There are 15 stunning tracks which are mainly electronic and you will see I have slipped in a few of my Baroque classics.album-cover-for-studio-valiumm-by-chris-duggleby-see-transformatesdotcom-site

To further enhance your listening pleasure I have also produced YouTube videos for all the tracks. Why not click on the playlist below and they will play automatically (same order as on the album ….until I change my mind!). In fact you could start the play list now and use it as background music while you look at my pics below. It’s a good idea to wear head phones because the stereo effects will blow your mind. Most of the music was produced, at least in part, here in my Cape Town studio.

Now for the scenic pornography…. First let me explain why the world’s laziest photographer got round to taking these photos. Having launched the album (above) I promised to take my support team for their Christmas lunch at the Kalk Bay Harbour House restaurant (I know it’s nearly the end of January but I got a special deal). I even arranged live ‘table-side’ entertainment (see below) – local wild animals mugging tourists…

The restaurant was a little way from the studio which is at Sunset Rocks (the posh end of Cape Town’s rather exclusive coastal village called – Llandudno – because we are not in Wales you don’t have to spit when pronouncing the ‘Ll’). This meant lots of toilet breaks on the way (always a must for my backing singers the Pretty Spandex Boys). This provided lots of opportunities for me to take scenic pics and the occasional selfie (although I do recommend care when doing a quick selfie at a road side public toilet – if you want someone to hold your selfie stick be prepared to pay a significant tip).

The beaches would be fine if someone would clear up all these rocks

One of the most impressive toilet stops was at the Cape Point light house(s). Sadly they didn’t do a very thorough risk assessment when building the first light house – ships (like the Portuguese Liner ‘Lusitania’ in 1911) sometimes sank because they couldn’t see it. So they built a new one which had the advantage of being visible to ships. By the way if you like pictures of old ship wrecks why not take a look at my article here.

Cape Town is famous for its wild birds - this ostrich was strolling around near Cape Point

By the way if you also decide to have Christmas lunch here they have some pretty big wild turkeys. This one was near Cape Point

I think this was on a busy day!

Yes….another bit of Beach…can’t wait to get back to Woking! At least there you don’t get sand in your undies…

At this point as a former risk manager I must deliver my obligatory health warning. If you do take pics in remote locations keep in mind that you are in Africa and security should always be in your mind. In 2010 (on Jan 1st) I managed to get stabbed taking sunset pics on a remote beach – a local gentleman wanted to adopt my camera and give it a good home. Being a Yorkshire-man I didn’t immediately agree! Fortunately one of my neighbours (thanks Ashley!) got me quickly to hospital to get stitched back together and my studio support team provided a shuttle service while I received further treatment (thanks John and Deanne –  also on the Christmas lunch outing – pic below).

Oh and by the way the sunsets here are not bad too. Here are some photos taken from my Valiumm Studio balcony this week…

  1. rocks? wild turd (spellcheck) turkeys? beaches (us; lakes)? the only difference between montana and south africa is salt water… enjoy dugglebys making music – family legacy, ay?

    • Wow Colin,
      sorry about the delay…for some reason you were put into the junk mail (I think we had set it to capture any comments containing the word ‘Turd’ …..only joking of course). If I am honest I do prefer swimming in salt free water as I used to enjoy in the Austrian lakes – but at this time of year I would need an ice breaker. Hope you like the music….I intend to get a bit more ‘vocal’ this year.
      All the best,
      Chris

  2. We rarely travel out of our town so I really enjoy visiting countries via others’ travels. Your pictures were wonderful and interesting. Using your music as a background worked great. Thanks.
