Dear occasional reader.
This last year has been interesting musically. With the sad departure of Steve to London, we had to find a new drummer.
Step forward Richie McHugh, an old school mate of mine. Bonza !
And then there were three of us in the room once again.
Three and in , the three in one , the three musketeers, three stooges and so on.
Rehearsals have been taking place( reasonably ) frequently over the course of the year.
We played at the fringe, which was fun, and got a spin on radio.
All in all, not a bad year.
ps I’ve finished writing a new album.
For now I cant say much more, but that’ll do for now.
Happy New YEAR

Off to London, recording Monday
second rehearsal of new songs Mon.
the new digital LP is due to hit the stores next week. There’s not too much to add in way of background to this album. It was recorded in one take on a dark and stormy night with guitar and vocal done live, it was then edited down to an LP size, (by leaving off a few tracks that will hopefully appear in the fullness of time) and I sat on it for a while, wondering whether to do a full band recording of these tracks or release it as it is. Its called Sometimes it Rains. And I just thought, what the heck.
The band will be doing things in the next few months again, will keep you posted.
For now, stay low, go fast.
