stubble = grown up yeah?

We are emerging into the light on the other side of a fun / suitably contentious batch of gigs. I'm pleased to say that it feels like I 'got my groove back' - which is to say I've started smirking and saying quite offensive things in-between songs. And also really enjoying singing all over again. And we've started doing more than one song per set again.

No confirmed dates at the moment, I'm concentrating on finishing the EP and Lee and Rollo have been discovering hidden depths in the book.

Alright then poppets. More laters.




Gary Glitter and Iggy Pop, fighting to the death on the beach over the site of sunbathing twin girls.

Iggy wins. Digs himself a hole and goes to sleep in it.

My dream life just gets more and more...

Also... you can have a look at an edit of Revolutions:





Hmmm... I reckon I'm going to have to get myself some kind of PC... a software sim of the only synth I've ever liked using. The SQ80 was a hybrid - adigital synth that had real analog filters. I got sounds out of mine that I've never been able to re-create. And I wrote Sweets and Dirty Hand Job on it.

Naturally, it's not available for Mac...

VSTi Ensoniq SQ80.



My camera made this, it should be a picture of a face.
It's broken but making its own collages?

I've spent the day making an edit of Revolutions (the latest film / live soundtrack by Milk & BeatnikSoup) with audio from the recent performances. There's some SERIOUS bass end going on.

Now that I have less distractions (my top drinking buddy Poppins has escaped the confines of Brighton in favour of London Village, as most of my fiends seem to be doing lately, and DJ Ruse isn't really speaking to me at the moment as I keep referring to him as a fauxscist) I hope that I'll get back to putting the finishing touches on the DVD and me, Rollo and Lee plan to get together soon to go through the book.

Gigwise, it was great to get people dancing on Friday. Hello and thanks again to everyone who saw our set. The place was an absolute sweatbox, coupled with the smoke machine things certainly had an atmosphere... I was obviously enjoying myself and wasn't able to contain my smirk / sarcastic comments (I won't repeat them, if you weren't there, that's another of your losses!).

DJ Sara sporting the Imercian Flag!

Every thing feels and every thing sings.

I got to go. Work to be done.




Friday at The Hope was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone that saw us play and cheers to Allan and Helen from Little Specks for inviting us. Just about recovered.

We made the set up as we went along. Started with a free-form thing (I can't remember what I was singing about but it was completely spontaneous and felt really good) that eventually turned into Sweets. I was feeling relaxed and comfortable.

You know we're feeling good if we get a bit sarcastic. I even explained what unpleasant things a couple of songs are about. That's a first.

Little Specks of Blood Lust Blood were really intense.

I'll write a bit more once I'm more awake.
