If it’s ok with you, I’d rather think that my performance last night didn’t happen. Good. Moving on. Did anyone catch Robert Blake, Jinx Lennon and newportSound last night? They were all very good and made for an entertaining evening.
A few bits of news to get through since I haven’t updated in a while. The Indelicates gig went well, and I’m eagerly awaiting the Live album with all the comedic banter. After the night ended, I was chatting with the awesome Julia and Simon Indelicate about music and stuff, with the outcome of this being that the next DH&RFPB album is going to be released through their own Corporate Records label, I can’t fucking wait!
I started recording the guitars today for it, and so far it’s sounding pretty cool. More like my Connections album in the mix of material than stuff that’s came afterwards. It’s sitting at around 12 tracks, most of them never recorded before, some never even been played live (and a couple that have never been played to the band!). I won’t jinx it with posting a track-listing, but I’m sure people will be happy with what’s going to be on it.
I’m hoping for it all to be done and dusted for an end of January release, so keep a bit of your Christmas money ready for that!
In terms of gigs, I’ve got a couple things coming up. Look ahead to next year, on the 12th of February 2011, the band and I are heading to London to play Lexapalooza Lite. This is going to be off the scale with the currently announced acts (and the promise of Special Guests is always exciting with previous events history!). Aye, so 12th February, Renegade Folk Punk Band, Mark McCabe, Ciaren Lenehan, and many, many more at the Old Queen’s Head in Islington, for Breast Cancer Charity. See www.lexapalooza.co.uk for full details of tickets going on sale 9am Monday.
Working backwards, I’m heading up to Aberdeen on the 11th of December to play at MUSA. The promise of some Brewdog Beer tempted me for this. And on the 5th of December I am playing at Thomsons in Dundee with the fantastic Don’t Let Paris Fool You and Just Another Warning. it’s free entry, and going to be dead good.
And finally, please take some time to have a read of this petition and add your name.
