radio show on Resonance FM. It was the Pretentious Mystery Voice
competition and I happened to know that the voice belonged to
synthesizer pioneer Robert Moog. I assure you there was no nepotism
involved. The tickets were for a world music event at the South Bank
called Global Junction that was part of the Rhythm Sticks series. It
featured a British percussionist, and Indian flutist, an Italian
guitarist and an Italian bass player. All were excellent. The guitarist
came out and did a solo acoustic piece at one point that was so amazing
it made me want to throw all of my guitars into the river! I sat there
slack jawed for a good five minutes. His name, by the way, is Antonio
Forcione. Check him out.Welcome to the latest installment of Weekly Update. Last week I neglected to mention that I won tickets on |
Free French rehearsal tonight in the usual place at the usual time.
This is the last rehearsal until the night before the next gig, which
is out of town in Bury St. Edmunds. I had to remember not to ride my
bike to the station but instead to carry all my stuff with me to work
today. I remembered well. Some new songs are coming along very well and
should be a blast to perform live. "Don't Come Cheap" is coming along
particularly well. This is one that I am really looking forward to
recording in the next couple weeks.
We moved to a new managed office on Glass House Street near Piccadilly
tube on Monday. That shaves about five minutes off my commute, yippee!
Actually I can't complain, it's quite easy. We've had more people start
this week so strangely now we are approaching capacity in this new
office. And there are more starting in the next couple weeks. Hmnn...
