Michael Cullen “Throw Down Your Guns”

2023 ep

These songs comprise some highlights of Michael Cullen’s 2023 musical output. Amongst providing lead and backing vocals for (disability arts organisaton) Honeybee Creative’s “the Year Of The Unicorn” album, Michael spent time in the HBC studio engaged in an experimental collaboration with music facilitator and producer Stephan Beattie.

Unable to physically put pen-to-paper anymore, Michael turned his attention to improvised stream-of-consciousness poetry. Responding to live arrangements using Ableton, Michael was able to write songs despite his disability. The editing and arrangement process was colaborative and everyting was produced in-house at the Honeybee Creative studio in Kandanga QLD.

We’re extremely proud to release Michael’s first single “Spiders”. Available now on Bandcamp…


Spiders crawling through my mind
Making clear thoughts hard to find
Taking over logical thought
That distracts me all the time
Spinning a web that catches flies
To help me make my alibis
Giving birth to it’s hungry young
Making lies fall off my tongue
I know the difference between right and wrong
But the spider webs are very strong

  1. From Paul Munday…

    Hey man, I love it!
    Your singing is great, and you have a good, deep timbre to your voice.
    There’s a real Nick Cave/Jim Morrison feel there 🙂
    I listened to the other song on the website that you feature in too.
    Don’t stop rockin’!!
