hApPy nEw yEaR...

the new year is here and we gotta get this album finished off but before I talk about that let me first of all take this opportunity to laugh at Malso the Malfunctional for breaking his laptop within 7 days of purchasing it..he was only using my laptop for about 20 minutes over xmas and it stopped working for about the same amount of time..anywayz his replacement has arrived and I'll be taking small bets in the forum section of the site on how long this one will last him...

...anyways we've both been taking it easy over xmas on the musical front, I had a good few days holidays left to take from work so I had a couple of weeks at xmas to just chill with friends and family, we only did the one gig which was xmas eve and from there on it was pure munchies, cubase and the xbox 360 (yep..we got one. yep. we booked it in July) until Jan 8th when the fun finally had to come to an end...

...highlights were xmas nite and new years eve spent in the O'Sullivan residence...that's as much as I can say about that for now but those who were there know ;)

So now it's back to work and back to recording again very soon..the tracks are all recorded at this stage so we just gotta spend a couple of weeks polishing them up (i.e. making them sound like they were recorded in Poland) and adding final vocals and that sort of stuff..I'll be putting up the album cover pretty soon aswell and the album itself will be available to purchase in the very near future too..(or The Very Near Future II)

Once the recording is out of the way we are looking forward to getting around the country a bit more in 2006..Galway and Cork are big plans on the big plan board but I want every town small or big (or even biggie smalls) in the country to know our faces and hear our songs (and eventually put pictures of us in their windows when we are coming to town) so expect to see us pop up at any occasion from a housewarming to a deportation...

Thanks to everyone who supported me in 2005: people at gigs, people who sent emails, posted in the forums, asked me for a copy of the demo or told someone else about it...it's a long way from the bottom to the top but it all helps and I appreciate it...

...and if one person that likes your music turns in to ten people that like your music..and if ten people turn into a hundred people and a hundred people turn into a thousand then a lot of that has to do with the ones that were down with you from the very start...and if that thousand turns back into ten people then your music career is f**ked hahahaha....
