We have just completed the arrangements for 7 brand new songs. We will working on these for our new live set and will continue to record for the new album. We hope to out gigging again within the next 2 months.
We were locked away all day last Sunday recording and working on new songs. Another one has been started with the drums, bass and rhythm guitar sorted. And the start of another epic, at least 10 minutes long. Locked away again today recording. The long one is getting longer and I will be experimenting with some synth sounds next week. This one could end up at 20 minutes (hee hee hee). Another new rocky type thing started as well. Busy, busy, busy.

Haven't posted for a while due to political work taking up a huge amount of my time and working on demo's for the new songs. Have just completed a demo of a new one called Left, Right. Sending it out to the band tonight as it has the arrangement sorted but we still need to work on an intro for it. But it sounds bloody marvelous. I have attached a wee preview of a bit from the middle. More soon.
Well, we have decided that the gigging treadmill is off the list for now. No more trapesing around prostituting ourselves to the masses. Not until at least next Mrch/April. (unless some gig comes up we could not possibly turn down)
So what are we going to do?
Recording, recording, recording and writing new music. We have 3 complete songs, 2 tunes and at least 3 embreos. So we will be concentrating on album number four.
From there we will be working on a new live set, that only has new songs as part of it.
Lots of work and lots of hard graft to come. Feels like a new begining to me.
It's been a wee while since I updated the blog. Between gigging in Fife last month and all the political stuff I am involved in at the moment, time just flew past me. We haven't rehearesed for a couple of weeks and now it's time to re-focus on the music.
Today we will be back working on the 4 new songs we have and then deciding on where we go from here.
I am starting to become jaded with the whole gigging fiasco that is so prevelant in Scotland at the moment. We need to recharge the batteries work on new music, publisise our last album more than we have. I still think it's the best thing we have achaived musiccally so far. Due to our own lethargy we have not done enough to spread the word on it.
Well, I have been a bit busy with other things of a political nature over the last few weeks and the music has been put on hold.
But next month we have 3 gigs coming up, and strangely for us they are all in our own back yard. The first is at The Windsor in Kirkcaldy a first for us there. Then we are off to West Fife Enterprise for the West Fest, a fundraiser for my work. With Echo Arcadia and SO4. Lastly we play at Monty's in Dunfermline, again a first time, and a 2 hour set. Bloody hell it's like buses, you can't get a gig in Fife, then 3 turn up at the same time.
We had a wondefull time at PIVO PIVO on Saturday for Rhona and Kelly's wedding celebration. Our good freinds The Coffins were on superb form. Check out some pictures taken by Ronnie Refin https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.399064513548133.1073741841.381607735293811&type=1.
Onwards now to Balliter next Friday. We have been invited back to the Victoria week festival by Ade Scripps. Last year was a brilliant night and we are hoping for more of the same, with an hour plus set.
