well, I’ve been a little quiet of late so I thought I’d give a quick rundown of what’s been going on. GorF, I’ve sold a few more kits (about another 30) and I’m out of parts for kit5, I’ll be ordering them in a week. Music wise, my new band had it’s first gig, 20 […]

Here’s something you don’t see every day

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Actually two things, firstly apictures with yours truly in, secondly me smiling in them. These are pictures from the Highway 5 Gig, no particular order. Click for bigger images. I’m the muppet in the red Atari T-Shirt. In case you’re wondering, we had a “guest” guitarist for a couple of the songs.                                     Thanks […]

Keep On Rockin’ in the Free world

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

WOW, what a great night! As some of you know I left my band, Ten Fifty, and I’ve been rehearsing with Highway 5 as stand in bassist for Ben as he’d double booked himself with his band, Absolute Ataxia, that night. I’ve learned 22 songs, and they kindly agreed to play Jelly & Ice Cream (one […]

Bassist seeks band

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Well, since leaving my band (Ten Fifty), I’ve had a nice break, done plenty of work on GorF and feel like I’ve rediscovered my love and passion for music. I’ve really been enjoying rehearsing with Highway 5 and although the gig on the 28th of march got cancelled, I’m still playing on the 3rd of April with them […]

Time to move on

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

It is with great sadness that I’ve decided to leave Ten Fifty. I’m not going to go into the reasons why here, but I feel it’s time for me to move on. I would like to thank the guys, Frank, Kristian and Jim, for some great times and for giving it 100%. I wish them […]

Overplay

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

We’ve joined another place that promotes unsigned bands, Overplay. This one seems to be quite different to myspace in that they focus on unsigned bands rather than anybody who wants to have lots of friends. There are other advantages too, being able to sell merchandise, uploading upto 16 songs and being able to sell those […]

Ten Fifty

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

No, not the time. The band I play bass in now has a name, we’re called Ten Fifty. It comes from the New York Police Department code ’10-50′ which means “Disorderly person/group or noise” which seems apt somehow. There are four of us in the band – From Left to right : Paul Lennox who […]

Adventures with Micro BR

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

I’ve been playing with my Mico BR some more and I’ve really got to say just how impressive it is. Remember that idea I had whilst mucking around with it? I added a chorus, programmed some drums (not the pattern an arrangement of preset patterns), added a bass line, mixed it and mastered it all […]
