Gig with Roddy Woomble (Idlewild), and a new band beginning!

Hello all, s’been a busy musical 5 days… starting last wednesday with the beginnings of a new band format to attempt to create the third dimension in the songs, something that you can almost open a door and get into. First jam with Paul Mill (of ‘The Lord’ and ‘Stan’s Magic Foot’ fame) went exceedingly well. Definitely no shortage of ideas as the talented fella got his hands on the harp, and old casio with 3 second clip recorder, not to mention a miniscule guitar and the Epi Casino. Many an fantastic atmosphere was created for the new album tracks. Looking forward to the next sessions in the studio or the old chapel on the windy hill.

Weekend… amazing gig on Friday with The Steals and Tenth Leper, what a couple of great bands and lovely folk too. Tenth Leper played a really warming set and The Steals were nothing short of phenomenal all round… good times ahead for these folks methinks.

And finally, this Friday 19th – next Johnny Powell gig with Idlewild frontman ‘Roddy Woomble’ who has been carving out a really pretty solo career of recent. Will be supporting him at Hebden Trades Club… on about 8.30 to 9pm.

Ahhh tis getting late.




Gig with The Steals and Tenth Leper next week – Friday August 12th!
