Somebody said there were more former members and part-timers in the crowd than there were on stage. The set is a blur. My playing was messy - I got so wrapped up in singing I had no idea what my hands were doing. I think I played Sweets with my eyes closed the entire time. That's got to be a first. But it was so much fun.

Really great to see some of the old gang it was very nearly like a family reunion. Nice to see a Mekano Set t-shirt or two in the crowd. We keep saying we're going to make some new ones. Really great to see Pat and Cat and Ruairi. The crazy micks. And Sahara and Nige (who had to introduce himself as Bert Triangle to get on the guest list).

Thanks again to Ricochet Romance for inviting us along and cheers to Unkindness of Ravens for rounding off things with a blast.

S] Where does the inspiration come to merge electronic and rock influences now in 2010?

A fun, rambling interview with me, Lee and Dom Smith @ Soundsphere Magazine:




We are dangerously close to having an EP on our hands. We have four songs and a remix of a track from the first album.

As an appetizer for the album, to our ears at least it sounds way more consistent and a whole lot fatter. If you're curious, there are some early demos of tracks on soundcloud.

"Whatchoo loohinat?!"

Also, I'm pretty excited about playing Hope & Anchor on Saturday of Halloween weekend! Apparently it's fancy dress and there will be some added theatrics in the shape of fire-eaters, and dancers...


Well anyway, I better get back to not adding any more noises to these tracks... see you!
