Happy New Year, Happy New Start!

After a short pre-Christmas Scottish tour, covering the major cities (and Dunfermline), and rudely interrupted by the Twitter-trending “Hurricane Bawbag”, we returned to Edinburgh to eat our own body weight in turkey before a Hogmanay gig at the Third Door. A good way to work off the chipolata sausage and “TV chef” inspired goose fat potatoes. We were upstairs for the bells, mainly due to Craig and myself being barred from the venue within about ten minutes of leaving the stage (don’t ask), then it was dispersal and gin until the wee small hours, working on the assumption that it’s always good to start the year with a hangover, as it ensures a steady upwards progression in mental well being for the first week of the year if nothing else. Every day, in every way, I feel better and better…

 

So what have we been up to recently? Those who attended any of the gigs will have noted a few new tunes in the set, getting their first test-drive in a live setting, and that pretty much answers the question – we’ve been holed up in “the office”, working on new material. With a bunch of hot-off-the-hard-drive demos in hand we are currently sorting out studio time to convert them into the finished article. A collection of newly recorded tunes you say? Wouldn’t that be called an album? Well, maybe it would. Watch this space…

 

In the meantime, I’ll be posting the final overdue instalments of our last blog, and any new developments as they happen. Studio Diary, anyone? Time for round three…
