Once Bitten... (2008)

Pretty much a straight up rock album with a dancy edge and bleak lyrics touching on murder, depression and society's ills.

...Twice Shy (2009)

An upbeat guitar based album with a groove.

The Sweetest Taste (2010)

A return to the eclecticism of my first album, but with better songs and better production. This time around I tried to write more hooks and catchier choruses. I'd like to think I succeeded.

Inside The Institution (2011)

This time I have my singer on board so technically this is a Primakova album - trying to have more than one account on here is more trouble than its worth so it's going under the Honeycomb name which is my solo effort.

This time I've tried to write songs that will work much better in a live environment as we've started gigging again, so things are more upbeat and stripped back from studio tricks and too many overdubs.

Swimming Back Upstream (2012)

Coming Up For Air (2014)

A "concept" album based on news stories that were posted to the BBC website on 02/01/2014
