The L.A. Test

Ok so the latest updates on the musical front...I unfortunately had to postpone the recording session at the end of June due to studio availabilty..basically I had booked a couple of days there and TooSkin had arranged time off from work to do the recording on those dates..studio rang back at short notice and said they weren't available for the dates after all...so needless to say I was a little stressed after the lads getting time off for it etc...anyways we move onwards and upwards and should be doing some recording in the first week of August...

...as regards the recording I am contemplating some changes to the original plan..as you probably know myself and Eamon are gigging as a duo at the moment..we are getting great feedback on our sound with just the guitar, harmonica and piano..so I am leaning towards the idea of using the same sound for the ep...that's not to say we are never going to record another "Pull Me Up" or "Charles" again..as you know I love my 4 piece band set up more than anything...I'm just personally enjoying the vibe of what we are doing at the moment and it would probably show on the ep if we were to record in the same way..we'll just have to wait n see I guess..

so that's where it's at for the moment...thanks to those of you attending the shows..am really enjoying them and I plan to do as much gigging as possible this year whatever the line up may be..

...the good news is there is a new love in my life...I bought a Takemine last week and I have barely put the thing down since..joy is all I can say..

and last but not least...shout our to my partner in crime and one of the famous five..Keith "Thanks Harry" Harrington...gone back to live in Thailand again for another while...thinkin' of ya buddy ;)


see u soon

The Birthday Bash

Ok folks if you are around this weekend I am having a bit of a party in The Vic Cafe...it's my birthday so you better be there ;)

I'll be kicking off about 10ish..Eamon will be with me on the nite too so that in itself is an excuse to come along...not sure where the "after-show party" is but I'm sure we'll all end up back to mine in the early hours of the morning...

btw the support slot with The Devlins went amazingly well...very big audience but they seemed to like us a lot..myself and Eamon did all our own tracks for it, finishing with Psycho Killer (like the version on StopMakingSense) which if I do say so, blew the roof off the joint hahahahaha...

The Devlins were pretty sound too, spoke with them for a bit afterwards and they seemed pretty down to earth...was most impressed with the drummer tho, he played some brilliant beats during their set..

so thats it for the mo, only other news is this new guitar i'm getting on friday, it's the Takemine i borrowed for the Devlins gig..fell in love with and decided she had to be mine...and so she will be..

right im falling asleep here on my last nite in work this week...7:14am now and i'm wrecked...talk to you soooozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
