Wild Pathway Favourites
Das Rad – work starts on new album
The new recording year at Discus Music begins with a session from Das Rad – Martin Archer, Nick Robinson, Steve Dinsdale, Jon Short Peter Rophone – putting down some improvisations from which our fifth album Funfair will be gradually constructed over the next months.
Martin Archer on KOWS.FM
Starting in November 2023, Discus Music boss Martin Archer has been presenting a monthly radio show “Wild Pathway Favourites” on the independent California radio station KOWS.FM. Going out in the evening of the second Saturday each month. Drawn from music in Archer’s personal collection, the show is as wildly eclectic as you might expect.

Tony Oxley RIP
Tony Oxley, 15/6/1938 26/12/2023.
Discus Music is honoured to have had an association with this iconoclastic musician since re-releasing Tony’s seminal “February Papers” album in 2020. Tony’s final recording, The New World, was released by the label just a few weeks prior to his passing, and positive reviews were just starting to appear. More work was planned which sadly will not be completed.
Our thoughts are with Tony’s widow Tutta at this sad time.
