My EP that is. I may not sound like a really want to do it but honestly I do. It’s just finding the time to work on it. I have one track pretty much done so I might upload that very soon but I will finish the EP as promised by the end of summer – if we have an indian summer!
Had a brilliant night last night, the new-look New Generation Superstars frickin’ rocks. The new guys really add something to the band and it’s a line up that works well. Continue reading “New NGS Line-up”
I know I said I wouldn’t post again until I had something to report, well, I haven’t got any further in the studio but I have added a contact page to the website so you can contact me if you want. Just fill in the form and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
That’s something to ponder while I sign off for a while. I don’t mean go to that Great Gig in the Sky, no, no, no. I mean I’m not going to add any news or blogs until I’ve got something to report. Hopefully it won’t be too long. I’ve got a mate who has agreed to listen and give me some pointers when it comes to my mix and I’ve only gotta re-record a few parts now. Continue reading “Is No News Always Good News?”
I thought that I’d get a lot done this weekend. The weather forecast was looking a bit glum so I thought “great, I can spend all weekend working on some tunes”. Of course as per usual the weatherman was wrong. Sure I spent some time desperately trying to get some mixes to sit right (and failing once again) but come Sunday when I was planning to lay down some vocals the sun came out and ruined my plans. Continue reading “Keeping it Cool”
To choose your party. Yeah that’s right unfortunately it didn’t take long for me to bring politics into this blog o’ mine. But before you turn away in disgust let me just say this; I got some new songs ready for mixing I’m just waiting for a little advice from a good friend. Will update you on that soon(ish). Continue reading “Fight For Your Right”
Trying to produce a DIY EP to a decent standard and with no previous training is reminding me of that film See No Evil, Hear No Evil with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. It is very much the blind leading the deaf, or visa versa depending on how you look at it. Continue reading “Blind Leading the Deaf”
I’m getting quite excited. After much frustrated cursing and swearing at my general lack of studio engineering competence and mixing skills things are slowly coming together. I am sure there are many more frustrated moments on the horizon Continue reading “Progress”
Hello, I’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to getting the EP rolling. I should have got some serious work done over the weekend but the weather has just been far too nice to be stuck inside. Continue reading “News from the Studio – April”
Tonight my boys New Generation Superstars will take to the stage at The Gloria in Helsinki. I bet it’ll be a blinding gig and probably get a bit messy afterwards! But they won’t have all the fun, I’ll be up Rock City tonight to watch Vain, you know it’s nearly five years since I last saw them and that was when Red Star Rebels toured with them. My god how time flies!
Been recording a song I wrote a while back called “Home & Sober”. It’s one of those songs that I’ve found impossible to lay down before but I this time I think I’m winning.
So this brings the tally of songs that I’m working on for my debut EP to four which is just the right number, though Continue reading “Home Run”
I’ve finally got Twitter and when I say that I mean I finally get Twitter! For a long time I never saw the point. I tried it when it first came out and thought “what can I say in 140 characters? This is bloody pointless!” but now I finally get it. Continue reading “Twitter”
