What do you mean you didn’t know that we were away? Well, yesterday was a day of Internet action to protest the U.S Congress bill known as SOPA and PIPA. While I’m not American, the SOPA and PIPA bills are a threat to freedom of speech and the internet as a whole. Therefore, to show my disapproval I had a blackout on the website yesterday. The dangerous part of the bills is the heavy handedness with which they could be enforced, which, when it comes to copyright could be very harmful for folk, and public domain, music as a whole.
Back on track, the band and I are playing our first gigs of 2012 this weekend. We’re hitting Dundee once and Greenock twice:
- Friday – Dundee Doghouse, with Mark McCabe and otherr
- Saturday – Legends, Greenock,
- Sunday – Legends, Greenock
Both the Greenock gigs are going to be slightly different in that we’re going to be playing two long’ish sets each night. With out a doubt we’ll be able to play every single one of our band-catalogue songs, and have a few sing-along covers planned too. All gigs this weekend are free entry.
