So it came . . . and it went . . . and it were great.
Guivey came down Wednesday night and I had a little bit too much to drink.
Thursday woke feeling slightly off-key.
Good days work. Came up with what we think is a stormer of a new track.
People downstairs from me came round with a bottle of wine to ask if we would go out the next day as they were having prospective buyers round. The bottle of wine they proffered as a bribe slipped down a treat. Didn't have the heart to say we were going to be out of the flat all day the next day anyway. Drank wine after coming back from a tour of local hostelries. Awoke Friday morning feeling even more off-key.
Much ribald digs at how unprofessional I was. Did I know that I had to work the next day? Why drink then? Cos my mate Guivey was down that's why so sod off and leave me alone. Bloody rhythm section.
So songs worked out:
Skinny Skinny (2013) - the stormer . . .sounded so good we decided we will debut this at The Golden Lion in Bristol May 31
(I'm just giving a little life to) China (2000)
Trying for the Sun (1985)
Aretha on the Radio (1984)
Holy Days (1985)
plus our version of a Neil Young song for live work - again to be debuted at The Golden Lion.
As you can see we are going back over the catalogue and resurrecting songs from different eras that we think will work and hopefully most will.
