I have two friends who helped me build a shed
And I thought
I am someone who has two friends
Who help him build a shed
And that not everyone
If they wanted to
Could call two friends
Hey, let’s build a shed
And then a few hours later
Have a shed.
Some people I suppose, could buy a shed
Or pay someone to make it
Or expropriate someone else’s shed
Or maybe find one that was spare.
But I have two friends
Who helped me build a shed
And I thought
Rich is the man
Who has two friends.
And also, now, a shed.
The band notes with sadness the passing of Raquel Blanco, without whom, in more than one way, we wouldn't exist.
Our first jam sessions were in her basement. We filmed Lucky Streak in her basement. We did photoshoots in her basement.
The first stormcellar.
We send our condolences to MJEB & family.
Sydney on a Sunday. A good evening with the Sydney Blues Society.
Happy Birthday Sue.
Hugo P asked me why I said Happy Birthday to him, when his birthday is later in May.
Rather than admitting to my total error, I pointed out we wouldn't be there later in May. I think I got away with it.
The Annandale is much changed. Maybe the SBS moving the Jam there will help to renew what was once the most active Indie music hotspot in town. We can hope.
With P&T away for a month, Rosie and Brother Bill have stepped up to the plate for the next writing session for the Dark Skies project. First session this week. Stay tuned.
Speaking of the Dark Skies project, the Australian Bush Poets society has hooked me up with some local area poets. I'm a fan of Bush Poetry, we've been messing around with it for years. Smiley face here.
I'm taking a couple of quiet days and then we'll be back into scheduling the next lot of work. Yay.
I'm out hunting around for a Female Japanese Rock Vocalist to do a version of one of the new songs.
I've posted on Craigslist in Tokyo, on Reddit and might try and find some local Japanese sites.
Mr Wizard approves!
Here's the rhythm section finished with tracking for SC11. Sort of. Maybe. Probably. Except for embellishments.
Looking at this Drum Tunnel made us think of AJs studio.
And Mr Wizard suffered for his art.
Mixing, fixing, travelling (for Mr Wizard & Theo) to follow over the next few weeks.
Shows tonight and Sunday.
