Blog: It All Starts HERE
|< previous||next >|
If all goes to plan it's going to be a BIG and BUSY year round here. The new album is SO nearly finished that it is AGONISING - we're not booked in to do the final mastering on February 7th, which means it should hopefully be OUT by May, with GIGS t follow. I had a listen to some of it again this morning on the way to work , it sounds BRILLIANT, honest!
The SHOW of My Exciting Life In ROCK will be happening some more, at the Leicester Comedy Festival on February 6 and 7th, then hopefully in Liverpool, Southend and Brighton. I'm thinking of maybe doing a FINAL performance in That London before it all gets packed away ready for the NEXT show...
... Which will of course be Dinosaur Planet! So far I have a theme tune and... Er... That's about it, but there's plenty of time to get THAT sorted out, right?
I'm also going to have a go at finally sitting myself down and writing THE BOOK - that is, the one I was going to write a few years ago which didn't happen and turned into the aforementioned Edinburgh Show. I've got the new first chapter in my HEAD and a pretty clear idea of the second half, as it'll be basically what's IN the show, but need to do a bit of work on the early bits. The show contains nothing from before 1997, largely because the Pop Art BLOG that it was partly based on started then, so I need to go WAY BACK to get some of the other stories sorted out.
And with that in mind, when the BLOG returns TOMORROW we'll be going back - WAY WAY BACK - to 1982, to the very START of My Exciting Life In ROCK and The Masters Of Nothing. I'm really looking forward to doing these stories, especially when we get to VOON in a few weeks. LOTS of stories there!
And on top of all that I'm still going to be trying to write some songs for ADVERTS (if only so I can continue to get ANNOYED when I see the final versions on telly with OBVIOUSLY INFERIOR songs attached) and am going to try and do WRITING-style-WRITING for places like Maps Magazine and, really, anyone else who'd like me to do it.
WHOLE LOT OF ACTION, I think you'll agree - it's going to be a GRATE year, I reckon, and it all carries on tomorrow with a return to STATS! STATS!
