Back In the Rehearsal Studios

Yup, February has begun…we have no bass player and we haven’t actually been in a rehearsal room for almost two months.

But we are back in action now as a three piece, and we are really happy to say that we have been working on some new material. After doing a lot of preparation for cover songs for our Rochdale gig, we had totally lost track of our original material.

It was a compromise we had to make; ditch new work in preparation for a big gig. But having made that compromise we only now realise how much we like our own material and sound.

The result of our first practice in 2011…incredible! We jammed 4 songs and have started laying some vocal melodies to two of these songs already. One of these songs is brand new that we came up with in that jam, and the rest are work in progress from previous months.

What we are becoming better at now is converting some of the mind blowing jams we have in the room to full fledged songs.

This will be a creative and painstaking process so we’ll be looking at you to help us along and join in the fun 🙂
