Jo came up with the idea for the Saw in Paris Streets and this is him getting ready to try it out. It sounded perfect in the track and is an important part of the song now. Paris Streets is now ready for release and I will let you know when we have it up for you to hear.
We are finishing the new album ” Living with a Ghost ” and the first single has just been mixed. While we are preparing for the release I thought I would review one of my older pieces for you while you wait.
I found this wonderful footage of Sun Ra’s dancers and musicians and they seemed to be dancing to Light. So here is some Light for you in the dreary dark month of February. However, it is soon to be Valentines Day, so let us dance.
This has been a sad week, two great artists dying, both David Bowie and Alan Rickman being only 69. John Tavener and Geoffrey Burgon also died at 69 years of age. Is there this internal clock that makes people die at a certain age, I’m wondering, is it certain lifestyles, like being an artist? It just puzzles me that these four artists died recently at this age.
We would like to send our condolences and respect to Diten Vadher’s family and friends. Diten was an exceptional engineer and had a great future in front of him. His passing is such a loss for us and all musicians. We are so sorry, we will miss you Diten.
I’m very excited about playing with my new band, Robert Holmes on guitar, Josef Kaspar on double bass and Senan Robinson on drums. We go into the studio next week and we are rehearsing all the new songs for the new album right now! It’s wonderful to be playing with such talented musicians.
