A Précis of Discombobulationary Stature
Just wanted to put in an appearance and update a few things.
We have been furiously recording and compiling for the forthcoming Decent Pie album. Unfortunately manifold snags and gremlins have decided to rear their uglies, including a hard-drive meltdown on our main machine. We are not sure at this time how much of a delay and how much this is going to cost us. The damage is still being assessed.
Teaching commitments [both for me and the Pie] have been proving a necessary evil, and have added to the system clog. These will ease after next month, and we are still hoping to have something finished in our hands before the end of the year.
There is a new screenplay [the third one now..! and I think it's gonna be the best thing we've ever done] in the offing, along with a veritable plethora of new tracks and other music.
There are posts coming shortly on Mike Keneally, and also Boudewijn Zwaart whom we hope to have contributing to the work.
People trying to find me playing on the new Leppard album should be aware that the piano version of "Love" was released as a bonus track on the Japan version, and can only be obtained on import. [Or check the Lepps fan/forum sites for further ideas on that]
I have just confirmed a couple of days ago that I will be going on the road in early May this year, for a short tour with my old mate Ginger I Don't have any exact dates or venues yet, but promise to post 'em on here as soon as. At the mo' it looks like being The first 2 weeks of May 2009, and medium sized club venues in the UK - you know the ones.
There have been some pyhsical and mental health problems... like The Pie's knee going west, and me going slowly insane... [not to mention Harry B knockin another tooth outta my crust!] ... but fook it! I wanna stay off the brain medication (at least the pharmaceutical kind) until I'm 50 or die, whichever comes first.
What an exciting life we lead.
Stay healthy and happy if u can, and watch this space...
