Okay, first of all, I tried to arrange for a record to be sent to my mum. I went to the logo fiasco website and tried to buy a copy but sadly, PayPal have banned my email and I can't get through to talk to a human being and get myself unbanned.

Luckily, we're playing a gig tomorrow at the Good Ship, Kilburn and with luck I should be able to buy one tomorrow as can many other people. (Well I can dream can't I... it IS a good single and could do well if more widely distributed.) I'm thinking of trying to order it from Amazon to see if that makes Amazon approach Logo Fiasco and try to order copies.

Anyway, I'm excited about the gig tomorrow. It'll give us a chance to play live, which is fun, and to gain new fans from the audience.

In other news, I've been asked by Eileen Clarke of Only Indie Radio to produce some half-hour spoken word tracks as a way to get my writing heard. I'm finding that just as exciting and hope to send her the first four installments by mid march so she can start broadcasting. So, as I'm so fond of saying.

Wish me luck!

The Product

I've just heard some recordings from the last recording session. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. There were five tracks.

Kitchen Sink Blues - with Daniel on lead vocals. The track sounds like a Lebanese Acid Jazz band being kidnapped by Hawkwind. That's a good thing.

Then came Middleman. Dan was singing at his best here, his voice by turns angry and ecstatic, which is what he does best. It's a great rocking number.

Rust Vaccination has words by yours truly. It needs work but I'm proud of it.

Then Speedbore and What Rough Beast were like nothing else we do. Between them, they are about 20 minutes long and they are perfect film music. I could see them winning us an oscar let alone a number one.

Watch this space.
