What’s going on?

Between bureaucratic necessities for the release of my album I’ve been out playing with Jo Burt in the West Country -where people really DID dance on the tables-and a mico tourette in the Midlands with the Trembling Wilburys which was great fun.

The excellent Roadhouse club in Birmingham run by lovely folk and a theatre in Stamford,Lincs -a beautiful town that personifies England! But a cold drive back to London. Brrrr. The in between hotel although clean and comfortable seemed to find billing 7 separate breakfasts a challenge 🙂

Been playing some acoustic guitar in the studio for my pals  album which demanded very simple picking in an almost naive style that is quite hard to do when you’ve practised for years to handle more complicated stuff!
It works well though.

Next up is more Trembling gigs over Easter….

Out and About

A couple of friends play with – amongst others – a fine covers band called The Way Back so I drove out to Hertfordshire to catch up and see them play. They were really good, quite an esoteric set from 10cc through Crowded House to Zep’s Kashmir. I was particularly impressed by ‘Ramble on’ 🙂
Unfortunately being buffeted and barged by an increasingly drunker crowd  lessens the fun so I decided to retire early and run for home!
