Fishy Happenings

My third gig with Strangefish last night. It was a long day… I started at 7:30am – I had planned to be at the venue at around 10:30 and with a 2 hour journey ahead I needed to be ready. Freshly showered and breakfasted I set off – only to make much better time thanContinue reading “Fishy Happenings”

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”

Another gig weekend.

A very strange weekend. Friday night was a late one for me. Hannah was in Bridlington and I was called out. A great but busy finish to a hectic week. Saturday Saturday was somewhat of an unusual day. A weather bomb was set to hit us from about 2pm, and sure enough it did. RarelyContinue reading “Another gig weekend.”

An 80th Birthday

It might seem unusual to have a rock/pop band for an 80th Birthday, but the birthday boy has followed us for a number of years now so it seemed apt. The hotel it was held at was a great place. Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”

One Mole for the Road

Yesterday was a day of celebration of the life of Adrian Price (Mole); drummer with Kingfisher Blue ; who sadly left us suddenly in January. Ethryll had been invited to play as we are a fellow band in the same scene as Kingfisher Blue and have performed many gigs with the guys. The gig wasContinue reading “One Mole for the Road”

Leather to a wedding?

I was asked a few days ago if, should the right time and place arise, would I wear leather to a wedding? Well I can tell you, it’s arisen thrice already! Well twice… The third involved latex! Both events were in 2009, the first I wore leather jeans with a leather jacket… Adam, a friend,Continue reading “Leather to a wedding?”
