About Dead Doll

Advance copies of Thee Deadtime Philharmonic’s new AA-single Testify (Dues Paid in Full) / Hardlines) available exclusively from this site.

Dead Doll’s vision is to support talented musicians and writers to achieve their full potential.

My name is Andy McGlashen, and throughout my business career I’ve held senior roles in project and business management, sales and coaching. But my passion has always been music. From the first Bowie mixtape that my big sister made for me, through punk in my formative school years, early hip hop, electro, techno and beyond.

It’s the mix of business experience and a deep passion for music that drives my outlook to life: Follow your heart, listen to your head, and you might just end up knowing how to do it after all! My ambition is to use my business and coaching experience to nurture the creative skills of talented musicians and writers. The range of support available is detailed here.

I love my music but I know it doesn’t just happen by itself. Professional musicians have bills to pay like everybody else and are entitled to be treated fairly. These are Dead Doll’s four Values that determine how I work:

Fairness. A fair income for someone’s work and original art. For example, no-one should be expected to ‘pay-to-play’ or take unreasonable risks.

Transparency. I’ll be honest about what I can do and what my limits are.

Fun. I treat any task seriously and professionally. There may be ups and downs along the way but if it stops being fun then it’s time to stop.

Integrity. I want creative talent to thrive and this only happens when there’s mutual trust. It means being a confidante and a critical friend, to have artists’ interests above mine and fully respecting confidentiality.

On the journey I get the pleasure of knowing I helped, in a small way, to bring to life new music and other creative art. And have tons of fun.

I was there!

Time. I recall listening to Aladdin Sane and being pretty shocked by the w-word in the second verse of Time (“wanking”, not “whore”). Swearing in songs was unusual before Sex Pistols’ Bodies removed any remaining shock value: five “fuck”s in a 13-word couplet probably still wins the Grammy for concentrated sweariness in a tune. Where … Continue reading I was there!


5:00pm on Sunday. 12:45pm on Tuesday. These were the two most important times of the week. Every Sunday in the early ’70s I was glued to Radio 1 between 5:00pm-7:00pm for that week’s new chart .. the eager anticipation until about 6:50pm when the new number 2 record was played. Well, when you heard number … Continue reading 7-Up
