Well... that was a weird couple of weeks!
Gigs have started to filter in for the 2 week blast we’ve got planned for 30th July to the 15th August... which is nice! Anyone who wants to suggest us to their local venue is welcome to do so!!!ha!
However, we’ve got a long wait and so we’ve been keeping ourselves busy in other ways...
Ron’s arm is coming along well enough – he’s a cagey fucker though, so it’ll probably be the case that we’ll not hear a peep out of him until he rags it to pieces again!!!
We’re merrily writing away. We’ve got 2 new tunes sorted, both of which you will have heard us play live. We’ve at least 3 in the pipeline and hopefully in a few weeks time we’ll have enough songs that we’ll be able to put the brakes on writing and get in the studio!
Also, we’ve been frantically trying to scrounge out people who’ll review our first demo... we’re not all 100% behind this idea... half of us are reluctant because we think that the CD is not the best recording in the world and then there’s the other half who are adamant that the recording – weak though it may be – stands up well simply because the tunes are so awesome... I’m in the latter camp and, accordingly, I’ve been collecting names and address furiously!!! Hopefully in a month’s time we should have a nice wee crop of reviews, not all of which will say we are utter, utter caque... or as our first live reviewer put it: “Slightly forgettable”!!!
Also, we’ve been thinking about recordings... the plan is still to rattle off a quick 3 track demo to push at the Summer shows, but we’re all aiming for this summer recording... we’ve had a few offers from people to mix it and a few offers to record it, including Lee Malcolm of the Vessels (who are recording in Texas as I write!) which is very cool...
...but the truth is we’re still up in the air about how to go about it, so no doubt that’ll be the next crisis!!!
So, the hunting pack stumbles on, not quite on the same trail, but tracking bountiful prey nonetheless!!!
In a bit,
