Blog: News Updates

< previous next >
Before we enjoy some more STATS, I have some NEWS ITEMS to share. First of all there's a couple of changes to GIGS - the gig previously thought to be at The Garage on April 13th is now going to be at The Luminaire in Kilburn, while I'm now NOT playing at The Harrison on April 15th, as they've had to move it in TIME and SPACE to another date which I can't do. It's a bit of a shame, and also WEIRD - there's so many days in the year when i'm NOT playing gigs, how come other things always seem to happen when I AM?

Meanwhile, over on our Myspace Pages there's two NEW tracks up there. The first is the title track for "Warriors Of Nanpantan" which only appeared on the MultiMedia BIT. I heard it this morning and LIKED it, so that's up there along with an EXCITING PREVIEW of one of the songs from the new album. It's an acoustical version of "We Only Ever Meet In Church" which i recorded for Marcelle Van Hoef's show, at the same time as I did THE UBERSET. I think it's Quite Good, even tho it doesn't feature the GRATEST GUITAR SOLO EVER. For that I'm afraid you'll have to wait for the album version.

Talking of which, we've pretty much decided that it's going to be called "We Validate!" now, while the old name "A Fridge Full Of Nice Things" is being used for the EP which will precede it instead. Tim has taken on the role of ARTISTIC DIRECTOR for both, and so far they are looking NICE.

Finally, I went to a PUB QUIZ last night that was put on to celebrate Claire Dicko from Kooba's birthday. It was ACE, altho our team suffered the consequences of having me AND Johnny Yeah on it. When we started the other team members were AGOG - "Wow!" they said, "You two seem to know all the answers!" but they soon found out that SEEMING to know them is not quite the same as ACTUALLY knowing them. I had a LOVELY time tho, and even got a bit excited towards the end when the team who DID know that the last Prime Minister NOT to have a husband was Margaret Thatcher (and not Ted Heath) but DIDN'T know that the fourth square on the Monopoly board with a double L in it is "Go To Jail, Do Not Pass Go, Do Not COLLECT 200 quid". There was shouting, and indeed a little whooping. Pub Quizes are GRATE!
