Busy bees

Since my last blog, we’ve recorded our debut EP, we’ve played a great gig at 229 The Venue in London and written a couple of songs.

Not bad eh?


“You get dealt a new hand soon after you fold” is a line from my favourite song of last year – Airplanes by B.O.B. feat Hayley Williams.

The reason I’m thinking of this is that things seem to be conspiring to frustrate me at the moment. We were meant to be recordin our first demo in the studio last weekend and this, but for differing reasons, both sessions got cancelled. I feel like we’re banging our heads against a wall. We’re ready to record. We’ve got the songs, we’re tight, we know how to play them, it shouldn’t take us long to do it – but we’ve spent about 6 weeks trying to do it and have got fuck all to show for it.


I suppose it’s times like this that you have to just keep believing and pick yourself up and try again. I want to have the recording done, mastered and printed so we can give to people at our gig on the 27th, but it’s looking less and less likely that this is going to happen.

But, as they say, as one door shuts, another one opens. Let’s hope that something better is round the corner.

I’m going to play the video of that song to cheer me up.
