Decent Pie's Thought-Blog

Born too late pre-punk rockers. Trouble with authority, and a yearning for Rigorous Intuition.

Grumpy old git suffering with an acute case of 'The ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect' Who has no particular wish to sell you his music... no, that's ok, go off and buy another Britney album, and DON'T check out any of the fantastic, ecclectic, cornucopia that is: Decent Pie Just DON'T bother... you wouldn't like it. Too much would never be enough, just LEAVE it and go back to Robbie Williams ffs! Or it'll all end in a crying song. [as me ol' dad used to say]

JST Gets Her Ass Filmed Off [With DD]

Hey sports fans...
A mystery Joanne Shaw Taylor gig appeared out of the blue in beautiful, sunny downtown Birmingham central U.K.
It took place on Wed 12th July at The Jamhouse.
Jo and the band played flawlessly to a small but very appreciative audience, partly in collaboration with the podcast/guitar video site Lick Library so they could obtain and archive some footage.
As soon as it's posted I'll obtain and include a link on this blog so check back soon.
It was a low key affair really, if you could ever call that band low key. There was a mixture between the more formal [but still exciting] tunes from her forthcoming album, and some great solo work from both Jo and Dick on the occasional blues/R&B.
The thing I like about Jo is she is authentic. Even the more rigid arrangements are still allowed to breathe, and with both DD and Jamie [Little] well used to the necessary elasticity and spontenaeity from their E Numbers work, the thing soon gets up to it's fissionable temperature and pressure... and the sparks begin to fly!

Watch this space!

Hi kids,

Just to confirm that Dick will now be doing the iTunes Download session in Washington D.C. with The Lepps this week. [6th]

Also, just to reassure those concerned that he will DEFINITELY be back [though possibly jet-lagged out of his skull] to play the Debut SOAPSTONE MANIAC gig at The Adam and Eve in Birmingham UK on Sat 8th July.

See ya there!!
