St. Cecilia: Success

November 2012We’ve done it. The target was reached today with one day to go and I’m still rubbing my eye’s. Kind donations from Australia and a few from here in Glastonbury saw us over the line. I’m recording with the fantastic ‘Jez Hellard’ tomorrow and then with ‘Gareth Austin’ on Tuesday but it’s hard to […]

Hive studio’s OCT2012

Well we’re a third of the way through the pitch and just short of target. You guys have pledged £347, which is thirty percent of the total needed to make this a successful pitch. Sat saw the first of several sessions at ‘Hive studio’s’ in Glastonbury. Smiffy and Gem combined to record drums and bass […]

August Albums in Avalon

So good to be back. I love the smell of the Summer in England. There’s a kind of moisture in the air or is it the cut grass? Made it back for my Birthday which was spent with Family and than travelled down to Avalon. First stop Off Grid festival and a few organic ale’s […]

May to June Mooncycle 20-21

The best laid plans of mice and men. ‘Strada 9’ no more, 4 rehearsals in and they’ve let me go.. The waste of time and mind seems not so bad now i’m back on track with original material. It’s reminded me of the intensity a volume of work can have on your mind. And the […]

aagh. white dogs everywhere…

To my dismay a band named White Dog released an album in October 2011 with some pretty crazy sounds, some fantastic some awful! So i’m looking into a tradename here and it could cost me. I’ve been performing as ‘Whitedog’ for 5 years now and have the tat’s to prove it but! Will it stand […]

‘Lay down more Love’

Strange day, Okay though. Remembered a track we were writing back with ‘Local Chemistry,’ Harry McGuvnor, Dave Jenkins and Jesse Harding at the time. Jesse came up with the Riff, or was it Dave, anyway, it matched something i was doing and I had a friend there, Ken Abis. He had his dog with him […]
