And so here we are, with a shiny new website up and running. Well done Em for your herculean efforts in setting it up!
Hard to believe we are already drawing close to the end of 2014 (even though the trees seem to only have just realised this, which is fine by me as it has kept our neck of the woods less depressingly bare all autumn). I don't believe in Christmas until the 1st of December, when I really should start looking at thinking about making a start on buying presents for people... Anyway, stop talking about it. It doesn't exist yet. Shush.
I've really enjoyed getting to know my new loop pedal over the last few months, and being able to sing in a bass line (and it actually sound like a sort of bass synth) is something I now don't know how I did without before. That, coupled with some excellent guitar effects from my trusty drum sampler, has helped enrich the live sound a fair bit recently. I think Boss/Roland should sponsor me, I really do.
Plans are shaping up to go on a campervan tour of New Zealand in the new year with Em, and I can't wait! We're getting a bungy jump into a river done as soon as possible so that should set the tone for a good adventure.
This week I have been really enjoying learning covers of Sia's monster hit "Chandelier" and Hozier's "Take Me To Church", and playing the re-release of the fantastic GTA V. First person GTA is the best idea since it went from bird's eye view to 3rd person perspective.
I've also been song writing and have come up with some really promising ideas - most of which you will hear at some point in the near future. For now its time to stop writing, eat a quick dinner and get out to tonight's gig.
