Summer feels like it’s done and dusted now, but the sun is shining in the Post War Stories camp. Paul is now back from his holiday armed with a fistful of new lyrics. The work Martyn and myself put in whilst Paul was away has paid off handsomely, first practise back this week yielded a lovely new song. Musicaly complete, just requires some lyrics to finish the job! Back to the barn tomorrow to tackle an idea that’s wanted progressing for awhile. It’s one of those ideas im sure every band/artist gets, you know it could amazing if you could just find the right way to develop it. It’s an idea we keep coming back to, the type thats so close to your musical heart you can’t let go until you’ve exhausted every avenue! Again Martyn and me made some progress with it recently & hopefully tomorrow it can really start to bare fruit. It’s a bit of a space rock/dub juggernaut. I’ll report back after tomorrows session to let you know how it has gone. Looking forward to some post practice beers tomorrow, strangely weve not been able to ’christen’ our new musical project! We need to write something quiet as well, a number of ideas are knocking about on iphones and recorders that we’d forgotten about! It’s really very nice when these little ‘nuggets’ are re-discovered. That, i think, will be the next cab off the rank.
This week ive had Mansun’s ’Six’ album on the ipod. Forgotten little gem of an album!
