This is sort of a needle in the haystack, a piece of news wedged between my rants.
I have recently been recording a new album. It is a solo acoustic album, currently with 13 tracks. It will be realised under the name of “I am not a Nihilist” and is more than likely going to be called “No Ooos No Arrhs No Audience”. At the moment all of the songs have been tracked live and after listening to them over the next week we will decide if any need to be rerecorded. I will post some rough mixes soonish.
My friends Callum and Nick have been recording me at Callum’s parents house. Its really nice of the guys to record me and amazing that somebody will let me do it in their house. Before the last session they even made us dinner, which was really really good.
Callum and I have also formed a band with our friend Liza called ‘Curlew’ (which may change but who really knows). I am playing guitar and singing, with Liza playing bass and Callum on drums. It’s a nice change to be able to play some of my songs with a band, and hopefully we will start gigging in the next few months.
Last but not least, I have started co-hosting a radio show on 4zzz (102.1fm) called ‘Weeds and Wildflowers’ with Liza. Its on every Sunday night from 6-8pm, with a focus on new, weird, interesting and under appreciated music. We have done 3 shows so far and its been heaps of fun. Liza is also doing a blog for it, with some excerpts of the shows so have a look. http://4zzzs-weeds-wildflowers.tumblr.com/.
p.s: I started a twitter account, so lets see how long this is going to last.
