you woke me up!
cherry red disc is still currently in the works. dunno much about specific timeline, street date. jan 08? it's gonna be the best official rsm cd ever (16 panel pull out poster insert, tons of text & miniature memorabilia images, just like those greatest UK historical reissues - done up RIGHT!). did i fwd you the tracklist? also, i remastered it on computer software, so the fidelity is stunning, like never before. mostly all old stuff, but pumped up to explosive audiophile.
upcoming gigs planning is still being sorted out too; trying to get an electric band together, but it's fuckin awful seeking dependable pals, able fast learners, convenient scheds for rehearsing etc. the whole dilemma driving me batty. chris bolger is the only constant (bass). might use my keyboard as a drummer. breetvld had a personal meltdown, so suddenly he had to cop out. latest news is maybe my old 80s drummer lee miller may attempt to unite with us. also, i really am intent on instead performing the newer rsm tunes: best of manuscription, yungmoore, unpop6, shrigleys, moored, etc. which makes the rehearsing workload even more important. musishnins: what a hassle! it's no wonder i sadly must prefer the ease of playing solo. where's ian when i need him? lol
and yeh, sorry this year has slowed down to a crawl, regarding new music. i know you crave it, i do too but i am losing the youthful stamina... naturally, there's a big handful of unfinished projects which i really do need to complete, mixdown, lay to rest... someday i promise, but perhaps all this crucial practicing for gigging is now prioritized over silly new music. i kinda hate recording anymore, really need an engineer bad... but my playing is as satisfying as ever. that's a good thing, relieved that i'm at least still 'making' sounds.
meanwhile, more good stuff coming to you soon; dvds for the amazing wfmu show, and other delights. plus a couple of new 1st time archive remasters. your pile is always building.
thanks eternally for the support and friendship, mate. i really need it moore than eva.
ya still quit smoking, eh? how long's it been? 3+ years for me.
don't wake me up!
Yup - got 'em. Unpops are great. Killer tunes one right after another. The dvd's are great too. I guess you've been busy with all the recent activity? What's the status of the Cherry Red? Are all the upcoming gigs going to be acoustic? I forgot how good Don't Wake Me Up is! What ambience.
