North Ormesby tonight

After a change in the billed event (which was originally the evil load of Cargo Fleet club) we’ve now been moved to North Ormesby. A much nicer load in and pretty much flat if I remember right, plus there’s food across the road so I can have a pizza if I want. Being back outContinue reading “North Ormesby tonight”

Why didn’t I do this years ago?

I’ve used all sorts of recording methods over the years, each of them having various complicated cabling paths. Now it turns out there’s a really good one shot gizmo to do it all. Its a Focusrite Scarlett solo. Perfect for me! I don’t need any fancy stereo for my setup. I’ll be doing some workContinue reading “Why didn’t I do this years ago?”

Great gig!

It has to be said that Saturday’s gig was probably one of the best we’ve ever played! The crowd were brilliant and really up for it. The venue was a nice place and we played so well. Tight and sounding great. We’ve since had a few posts go online and a review which always makesContinue reading “Great gig!”

Strangefish Progress Update

I thought it was time I did a decent progress update on the Strangefish stuff, after all, it’s now about a month since our first rehearsal. First of all, full disclosure, this is honestly the most complicated material I’ve ever played. I’ve been in a prog band before (Manning) and his stuff was a doddleContinue reading “Strangefish Progress Update”

New Year’s Eve

New year’s eve this year was a gig in Gainsborough. The last gig arranged by our current agent before we go freelance and head to pastures new. Sadly, because of the timing of everything it’s left us with a rather large 4 month hole in our schedule now, but that works great for me asContinue reading “New Year’s Eve”

Gig day!

It’s at a rather nice spa this time. Ye Olde Bell. It’s very popular around here especially as the facilities are supposed to be top notch. We loaded in… Set up on the rather bijou stage, and waited for the crowd too appear. It was a very private function with rather fancy food. Unfortunately noneContinue reading “Gig day!”

Musicians playing Band Hero

Something rather unusual happened recently… I tried Band Hero for the first time ever at a friends house. As you know, I’m a bass guitarist and so I chose bass as my instrument, naturally, of course. How did I fare though? I was shite… but why? Well as a bassist I can tell you thatContinue reading “Musicians playing Band Hero”
