Episode 2: even more tyred – running on empty

As moose pointed out, the rest of that first evening may be summarised under the general heading: ‘Beer’.  It’s amazing what euphoria can do.  By the time we realised we were actually on board (and had come to terms with the disappointment of not being able to drive to Dover and then back up from […]

The lead vocals are in the bag – albeit a very large bag with a large number of takes (which will require to be carefully edited and selected) fighting within it.  But they’re done! I just ate a large amount of ice-cream to celebrate not needing to stay off coagulative dairy produce any more.  I think […]

Roy Ayers
