You know it has been a pretty uneventful year for the band when the last blog was back in January. To be honest, that shocked me and made me realise how slack we have been this year…Kind of
Outside of the band we have been extremely productive. Michael’s shop had it’s one year anniversary and he is doing amazingly well both as a bookshop and as a music venue. Check out The Big Comfy Bookshop now and see what he has been up to. I’m about to finish my first year as a wedding photographer (see Coates & Stain) and building my family photography up too. Add that all to the fact we have kids, wives and personal lives, it hasn’t left much room for music this year.
The good news for the band is that we are ready to start recording for album 3. We both have songs that we are excited to get out and I expect recording to commence early next year. The aim is to get a late spring/summer release but hey……..don’t hold us to that.
With all that aside, we really wanted to keep the tradition of our free Christmas download release going. So I give to you… It’s beginning to look a lot like barricades
This year we have recorded a cover of the classic ‘A Winters Tale’ originally performed by David Essex. As always, we have bundled that together with our previous festive covers and you can now download all 9 tracks free of charge from our bandcamp store here.
Please feel free to share the love and post about it on social media and we hope this gets you in the festive spirit.
If we don’t blog before then we wish you all a very merry Christmas
Jonathan (& Michael)
