Lewes Psych 2016

Last weekend I met up with Mr Stevens, Mr Powell, Mr Jupp and Mr McAlpine and we all headed into Lewes for the 2016 Psych fest which was being held at the wonderful All Saints Centre. A fine afternoon and evening was had, and the gents had lots of nice ale (The Lewes Arms). Sadly I did not as I was the driver for the day.
We spent a bit to long in the pub drinking (they did not me, I was on my third coke and ice)
so missed Wax Machine playing. it was a fine evening all round with superb visuals supplied by Innerstrings.  Other bands on the bill that night were Zofff, Soft Walls, Virginia Wing,  Novella and Cult of Dom Keller. Managed to have a chat to the Zofff chaps at the bar (and very nice they were to) Next year I really must find somewhere to stay so I do not have to do the long and strange drive home.

It was the Future

When all the games consoles started to appear in the late 70 and early 80s, I got into it and thought to myself "This is the future" Sadly I got rid of them all, and now spend my days regretting it. We also seem to spend all our time now not talking to each other and just staring at little screens pretending we have hundreds of friends, so I suppose it was the future.

New in progress track. "Mrs Vigo Said Something Rather Curious to me" Change of plan.

Another track lined up for the next album. A bit of tweaking and fiddling to do with it but its in all in progress at the mo. I quite like it. This track in this form no longer exists. Was never quite sure what to do with this one, so ended up asking Douglas E Powell to write some lyrics and do the vocal duties. The end result is rather good. So Mrs Vigo work in progress has progressed into the new track  Boxes with Rhythms in. Which will def be on the next album.
