Had a nice weekend so far. Well – since last blog, Thursday went to a band practice with scapegoat kelly, then to the big gig with them on Friday at Bar Med. Busier than most expected, and the impression I got was that it went down well. It’s really nice to be playing in a proper band set up again… Read more →

Snowing it has been. I had to drive to Leeds Bradford Airport in it last night to pick some friends returns from Amsterdam up. It was thick on the way there, but by the time I came back the road had cleared. Almsford Bank, coming into Harrogate was funny – there were about 6 abandoned vehicles at funny angles half… Read more →

Just been enjoying a bag of Seabrook S ‘n’ V’s and a mini peperami (no, they most certainly not too spice for me) washed down with a massive glass of ribena (non tooth kind original verity) when Eirene spotted something that did not compute: What is that all about ? Is it something to do with a reduction process or… Read more →

Had 9 round our table for Sunday Lunch yesterday. Needed a good feed to recoup engergy after top night of celebrating my friends new baba the night before. So – kids and drums and photos and chats and beers and wine and the most amazing bit of lamb. After this lot, I rolled about for a bit, helped Eirene put… Read more →

After a Dutch breakfast cooked by me, we had an afternoon up at Brimham Rocks. Have not been up there yet this year. It was really busy and they have started charging on the car park as early as Febuary now! (although who needs car parks when you know a sneaky spot to stash your wheels). It’s my favorite place… Read more →

What a weekend ! Two Barry Whiter (All nighters) and a Leo Sayer (All dayer). Friday – did a gig with Dharma – a 21st private party. Quite a reserved crowd. After that, we went to Tal’s birthday party. This was great. Beautiful house, grand piano in the front window which Alex was playing when we arrived. Few beers, nice… Read more →

Well – to all you Paraskevidekatriaphobics out there… (Those with a fear of Friday the 13th) – It’s bad luck to be superstitious. Hark at me. I’m terrible. The Hat on the bed thing is one of the worst – I don’t even think that’s a real one – made up in the film Drug Store Cowboy. I’ve started the… Read more →

Wowzers. Me old mate Simon over at wigg.net has just written a fantastic report of his account of winning a Red Dwarf competition. He’s been a big fan way longer than I’ve known him and a truly deserved winner of the prize in my opinion – well done mate! What a prize it was – as well as meeting most… Read more →

We spent last night up at the anima-mundi shed – a full moon party. Had a great jam with about half of the band ‘scape goat kelly’ and a few other random muso’s. We had a drum kit, my drums (congas and that), a bass, guitar, didge, mic and keyboard. Most of us swapped round and played different things. Top… Read more →

So today I went for a mission in the congamobile (christened “Ray” by Jaygo) to York to teach drums, and what they are all about and rhythm etc to a load of 10 year olds. That was so rewarding! (not as in financially) It was so great to spark the buzz of how cool playing drums is a to a… Read more →
