As busy as Mrs B. Body of Busy Cottage, Busyton, at a church social, after accidentally over-hearing that two of her neighbours have been having an affair…

Or, as busy as Juan the Piranha – a fish noted by his busiest friends for being particularly busy – when a large bleeding cow has fallen in the river.  Too graphic?  Ah well… how about: as busy as an enormous bumble bee with ADT.  Basically, sorry for the break, but we’ve been busy. 

Just back from Nice where I was trying to scope a gig or two for the tour.  It’s looking quite positive.  I even had to turn down a gig there on the Saturday night on account of having no instrument and no band.  My French is so bad that it took me a while to explain why that was an insurmountable problem.  I was probably patiently explaining that I was, in fact, a courgette.   Anyway, as it transpired, this meant that I was forced to wander around the old town and along the Boulevard des Anglais and stop for a cooling drink and a relaxing paddle in the med. in preparation for going into another bar and having another drink (well, you have to be civil if you’re going to discuss a possible gig).  So as usual, all the back breaking labour was left to me. Meanwhile, back in the studio in cold Edinburgh, Moose was having fun for hours (around sixty of them) putting the very final finishing touches to the EP.   And do I get a word of thanks? No.  But I don’t complain.  i just get on with it.  Did I mention it was 70 degrees?  Too hot to be working, but never a grumble passed my lips.  My dedication to the cause is such that I even found time to stop in to Amsterdam in between flights.  It’s a tough job.  I think ‘trooper’ is quite a strong word but I’m prepared to step forward when my name is called… 

The tour’s going to be great.  On top of which, the EP/mini album sounds awesome, by the way.  So excited about the launch on the 24th – not even two weeks away!  And then there are the other upcoming gigs, and the album! Are we nearly there yet?   Are we?  

How about now?

  • Hmmm. Yes “we” have been busy. Hugh had a laborious long weekend snowboarding in the French Alps and Marty managed to pop in and ask how it was all going between walks along the beach in France (wine glass in hand) and heading off for a relaxing stay in the highlands…

    The upside of me doing all the work is that the bass on the new recording is sounding huge and my Jam Block is featuring loud and proud on every song : ) You’re gonna love my Cuica solo too…

    Marty – Club Whamabama (the “imaginary” bondage club you’ve never been to) emailed us from Amsterdam to say your cheque bounced…
