I've realized something today!
I'm SHIT at blogging! As many teachers said to me in reports from school.....MUST TRY HARDER
I've just finished another 5 gigs in 4 days this weekend, playing Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Stoke, a lovely little festival in Wales and then Newport last night. That takes us up to #117 gigs this year so far I think, something like that anyway
Currently we're getting ready for 3 gigs at WATCHET FESTIVAL in Somerset this weekend, tent, cooker, all that malarkey. Seriously can't ait for all the slots but the mainstage slot on Saturday will be somewhere near to where I've seen the band playing all these months.
It's great to share a stage with the likes of THE LEVELLERS and UB40 to name just 2, and yeah, we're on early but I don't give a shit! Watchet is after all WATCHET!!
I've been writing a fair bit lately, the aim was to do a totally solo album but I'm struggling to write anything that doesn't have a full band sound SO the plan is now to record the album as a band album, and then do a solo EP beforehand. I haven't worked on a release date yet but I'm aiming somewhere early 2017 for the album, and I've got the title but I'm not telling anyone yet
I'd also like to say something, I've had quite a few people say about me being ill, this is due to some fairly serious weightloss and thank you for the concern but I AM NOT ILL! The weightloss was planned as I suffered from T2 Diabetes, which now appears to have gone. As a really cool bloke called Ben once said, HAPPY DAYS
The Alternative Shrewsbury Folk Festival ran nice and smoothly, although a stressful as fuck day for me it was a success and we'll be running it again next year
Right I'm off to eat some salad
See you down the front
