Dream Draw on Spotify

IMG_1217

I’ve finally managed to get a release out on Spotify. That is to say, I managed to get it out at the end of last year. It’s called ‘Dream Draw‘. You can have a listen by heading over to Spotify. I hope you like it.

All of the tracks were made on mobile using Aurora Sound Studio on an iPhone and iPad. Various effects were used during the creation of the EP. I quite like it.

Knoops, hot chocolate

Went here when I was in Rye. Truly amazing hot chocolate. Probably the best I’ve tasted in years, ever.

Stands (part 1)

IMG_1618

You just can’t beat a good stand. Something to put an instrument on, to make it easier to access. However, not all sounds are made equal. This is a ukulele stand I got for Christmas. I always prefer something made in wood rather than metal or plastic, and this has a very natural and organic feel to it. Plus, it works well as a stand.

But this is part 1 for a reason. Because there are instruments that you can’t find stands for, and in those situations you have to try something different. That’s for part 2.

Happy Birthday Blake’s 7

It seems amazing that Blake’s 7 is 40 years old now. I can remember being so excited to see each episode when it came on TV every week. I’m still a big fan, and looking forward to hearing the new stories coming from Big Finish.

Blues Brothers Banned

I’ve been a big fan of the music of the Blues Brothers for a very long time now. Since I first saw the film. Many years ago I saw the original band at the old Town and Country Club. It was an awesome gig. But they don’t tour so much these days, and not all of them are around anymore sadly.

However, you can go and see the Blues Brother Banned. I’ve seen them before, and yesterday they were playing at the 100 Club on Oxford Street London. It was a good gig and the 100 Club isn’t a bad venue. It’s small, you can get close to the stage very easily and the beer isn’t bad at all. What else could you ask for?

The gig was fine. They played a lot of favourites and a few more obscure tracks too. Given the time of year it was also a bit of a party gig, and whilst that was ok, I’d have rather that they played more stuff from the film. But never mind. I enjoyed it anyway, and I’d probably go see them again if the chance comes up.
