- SHUT UP!!!!
Borthers and Sisters,
Just a qucik one.
Thanks to all those that came and voted for me on Saturday, at the Battle Of The Bands comp in Canary Wharf...I'm through to the next round!!
It was a great night, with a great audience and some great bands. I really enjoyed myself.
The following nights gig at Boogaloo was not enjoyed as much!
The band before me brought a load of mates down and they all watched their friends sing away. The band mentioned how "nice the audience were to be so attnetive and listening to the tracks"....they then came off stage to go and chat as loudly as they could with their gaggle of mates, making it hard to hear myself sing
Those of you that have seen me know I have a loud voice, so this is qwuite a feat!
I just think it was really out of order for this to happen and the Promoter did nothing to quell this bar nipping out for a fag. Sure, you can't tell people to be quiet in a venue. But the band could have been mpore respectful being they are doing the same thing I am trying to do AND even mentioned how appreciative they were of the quietness, whilst they were playing.
And they stole my coat! True story!
(Disclaimer: This incident is most probably a harmless mistake and could be me building it up into a story of theft just because he has a strong dislike towards the rudeness and selfishness of said band)
This is an unpaid gig, which takes time and effort to get to and when you are not being listened to because of some knob heads, it makes it completely pointless. Needless to say I shan't be gracing that place anytime soon.
Still, this is a minor incident in the grand scheme of things. Like I say, Saturday was top, we all know about the singles, the plans are being put into place for the Music vids and there are a couple of gigs left before I break for Christmas.
Hope to see you soon, believe!
- I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!
Brothers and SIsters!!
Well, it is done, the singles are recorded, mixed and mastered! Had an amazing week in the studio and the tunes sound absolutley, positively MEGA!!!! I cannot wait for them to be released! This however, will not be for a little while, whilst the plan of action and campaign is put together and worked out, so I am having to keep a lid on the excitement for now.
Anyway, back to as we were before and straight in with a couple of gigs this weekend. One on Saturday in Canary Wharf for the "Be on the Scene" Battle of the Bans competion and then I am back to Boogaloo on Sunday to play a wee set. Then on the 22nd I do one last Christmas show in Camden at Proud Galleries, which should be a belter!
Got some new vids up for the 'Cover Cloud" section, so go check 'em out:
I also want to make you aware again about the brilliant Song For You, charity as they have made a Christmas track with the lyrical help from the patients at Chelsea and Westminster hospital! It's great and can be streamed here:
In a short while it will be avaialble to buy from Itunes, so it would be great if you can all get involved and do just that and spread some Christmas love!!!
Documentary is still being made and now we are moving on to the initial stages of the music videos for the singles!
Needless, to say I am so unbeliveably happy and elated to how everything is going and how great this year has been to me, believe!
