This is the website for all things Matt Howden, Mighty Sieben, and Redroom Records… fiercely independent music. So independent you’ve not noticed we exist. We take that as a badge of honour, of course.
Live, Sieben is a one-man rawchestra, looping a layering a heady mix of sounds. Always hypnotic. Previously much more floaty, but all that’s changing. More recently, its all got a bit turbo-charged. “Matt Howden has had enough; somebody’s punk roots are showing on ‘Crumbs’ as these songs get right to the point and then move on”. (Peter Marks, Santa Sangre magazine. Here’s the press release for the new Sieben album, crumbs, released 3rd August 2018:
You want some? You want crumbs from the rich man’s table? You want dark overlords messing with world morality, or a furious, satirical, tweed-clad anti-hero? Welcome to Sieben’s new album, crumbs. Welcome to gothpunktronic. Elegant, up-beat and angry. A crafted manifesto of horror and verbal burlesque.
On this site, you’ll find Matt’s blog; concerts; discography; and the Redroom SHOP. Here you can order all available Redroom products and delights, all handled by Matt personally, so just ask if you’d like anything signing or dedicating.

7JK is the project of Matt Howden, and Maciek Frett from the Polish electronic band Job Karma. The debut album of this project, Anthems Flesh came out in 2013, gaining some really good reviews and appreciative audiences. Ride The Solar Tide came out last year and no-one noticed, but its still a fab album, and much better than the first one.
