I’ve just read through a few old posts and got all nostalgic, but I also quite sickened by how pig ignorant I am of proof reading my own babbling. I mean, there’s spelling and grammar mistakes, some of which I put down to using Microsoft word (a poorly coded bag of toss) and partly because once I’ve written something I don’t tend to look at it ever again. Like when a dog cannot look at your leg once he’s shagged it. Anyway, I’m the grammar police in human form so it disgusts me that I’ve got away with it for so long, why didn’t anyone tell me? Probably because no one actually reads this blog. I don’t blame you.
I write to you in post iLiKETRAiNS gig glory. We’re still wandering around with stupid grins on our faces and we almost like each other (I joke, we're BFF's, like Paris and Nicole but with dignity). It was a wonderful night. We were complimented by a lot of people for a performance that we thoroughly enjoyed giving and then we got to have our minds twisted by Talons and then gently straightened out by iLiKETRAiNS. We got talking to them afterwards and it was really overwhelming to be complimented by them. It was like getting a good school report from your favourite teacher. I must say a huge thank you to them and Birmingham Promoters for having us on, thanks chaps!
The drive we had post album release has been boosted tenfold and don’t intend to slow down anytime soon.
New material seems to be coming at a rapid pace, which is really keeping things fresh and really letting us flex our creative muscles, that are completely metaphorical, we have no physical muscles but as they say, up there for thinking down there for dancing.
In fact we are now at the exciting point of demoing some new stuff. I listened to the demos for ‘We Raised the Flames…’ the other week and became excitable, I cannot wait to start it all again! Naturally we’ll be gassing at our various online pie holes about what we’re doing. You never know, early 2013 may see something new from us.
Back to the here and now. Last month we shipped all the songs off ‘We Raised the Flames…’ to a load of our electronica friends to re-jig, reupholster, remove and realign for a remix album that will be out on Minor Artists in the not too distant future. From the ones we have received so far, there is more there is every reason to be excited; we are getting some truly wonderful stuff back! Keep your eyes peeled and ears to the ground.
Nothing else to say other than that we have a meeting with the gaffer in the next couple of days. He has exciting ideas, we’ve got exciting ideas, no one will be able to get a word in edgeways. It’ll be like the stock exchange, except it wont be a load of fat lifeless cockends mentally masturbating over inflation rates.
One last thing...
Buy our album: www.minorartists.com/store :) You’re the best.
Winter is coming
