Evening all. Thought it was about time to drop you guys an update. About 3 weeks ago we said ‘goodbye’ to our old practise space in Ballasalla to move to a new home.
We’ve been in the new place about 3 weeks now, and were loving it! We’re sharing with a bunch of awesome bands and it’s great to be somewhere that isn’t the coldest place on earth!
The new place is a soundproofed room, which is a new environment for us and it’s been great playing the songs in such a place. We’ve also got a new song on the boil, which were really enjoying. Strangly we wrote the bulk of the idea, and the ‘plan’ of how we wonted it to develop, sat around a table at Martyn’s house. Myself and Paul then progessed it further last week whilst Martyn and his fiancee sorted out some ‘catholic wedding issues’ ;-)
Our friends ‘The Clown Calls For War’ burst their live cherry last weekend with a couple of support gigs. We caught them on saturday supporting the mighty ‘3 Million’. The Clown’s played a storming set, really like how they’ve constructed the songs. Really looking forward to playing with them in the future. We’re really looking forward to getting out playing soon. My wife is actually in labour as i’m writting this, looking like a St Patrick’s day birth!
For the last 9 months its been very difficult for me to plan or see much past this weekend, so it’ll be great to get back to some kind of normality with our new little bundle! And with that comes the ability to book things and not worry about early births!
Massive congrats and good luck has to go to Ami at the Ship Inn. The new live music venue there, ‘The Engine Room’ opens this weekend. It’ll no doubt be a huge success for Ami and south of the Island. In other venue news, all round top bloke, Carl Joughin has annouced that he’ll be the new landlord at the Mitre in Ramsey. Great to see people with a passion for music getting a chance at these places.
Catch up soon.
