Leeds and Scotland gigs

Quick update today, two more gigs lined up, one in Leeds on the 31st of July, but i can't remember where! I will update the page as soon as my memory (i.e. Dr Jones) reminds me where we'll be.
The other one i want to get some early advertising in for is at the Rockvilla hotel in Lochcarron, it's a pretty special place and i think it's going to be a pretty special gig.
More details on the gigs page of the website.

oh yes, and the confirmation for the CD artwork went off at the beginning of the week, and the master disc is at the pressing plant. How much longer can it take?

Oh yes, and one other apology, the website is all looking a bit funny at the moment if you use firefox; obviously i'm blaming this on the new version of firefox and it's nothing to do with my terrible html skills...

A dilemma resolved

Well, i've been umming and ahhing about going back on facebook. It's been a bit of a dilemma because it's hugely popular and would be a really good marketing tool, but their privacy policy sucks, their user content sucks and the fact that you can't completely close your account sucks. I don't hold with that.
So i went back on and checked whether they'd updated their policies after the fiasco they had a christmas. But they haven't. They're still shit.
So i won't use. Dilemma resolved and, amazingly for me, it turns out i still have the moral high-ground.
I predict it will be another 33 years before it happens again...

Saturday 7 June 2008

So it's been a bit of an eventful week. On wednesday Dr Jones and I did our first full length set. I was a bit nervous about whether we could actually keep people interested for 2 hours with just the two of us and playing mostly original material. But it worked and a goodly number of people came down and most of them didn't sneak out at half time.
It was down at Melton's Too on Walmgate in York, first and third wednedays of each month they have completely acoustic music on up in the loft. It's a really nice little venue and they have some good acts on.
So that was the good bit of the week.
The not so good bit was being knocked off my motorbike on tuesday night. This hurt a bit, and continues to do so. And the doctor has said i can't drink as well, the bastard. Oh yeah, and the bike has been written off as well. arse arse arse arse.
In a strange twist of fate, the example tags on the blog entry screen suggest "scooters, vacation, fall" which seems to be worryingly accurate...
Anyway, next gig is down at the Stone Roses Bar in York on sunday 22nd. More details as they come though.
