this site needs an overhaul, i’ve said that before. i suppose i could sweep through every page and close comments.
anyway i’m writing new songs and sort of working on a new bandcamp EP. the shocking realisation hit me that i haven’t released anything on there since december 2012. oops! though i did spend the entirety of 2013 whipping a band into being able to play my needlessly large catalogue of songs. and then a while actually playing them at some pubs.
since that point the lineup has changed. we are now finally back up to 4 members which is the minimum requirement for playing these songs live. so that should be happening again soon though with a rather different flavour given 50% of the band are now different people. interestingly these new guys are both about 10 years my senior which makes for an odd social dynamic. i’m a mere child telling them what to do and providing them with all the material. i suppose it just goes to show that my style and influences appeal exclusively to those of more advanced years. i never will get those 18 year old groupies now will i.
i feel the urge to write new things but i need to tidy up (by which i mean drop) some older ones to make space. this is madness… a smalltime band who have only played a handfull of pub gigs and we have 2+ hours of material and insufficient time to rehearse it all.
i’ve gotten to that stage now where i’ve set myself so many tasks in new projects and material that i have no idea which to tackle first. or why. maybe i’ll just get drunk in a corner and not make anything. maybe i’ll sit down and crap out a whole album again. maybe i’ll eat a pony.
