In bed early. Lights Out in 15. 6am start. Long day tomorrow. Drums recording up that London starting at 9, coffee at 8.30. Have also booked a December date to track drums for the “Others” e.p. – Signs, Eat, Lantern, Fathers, Exhibit A at least, possibly 1 or 2 more as the album is coming in at about 67 minutes at the moment and that really is too long for a single album. Therefore the sword is currently hanging over either “Heart Of Violence” or “British Wintertime”. It depends how they turn out.
No single album should top an hour, sorry, they just shouldn’t. Just like films really don’t need to be 2 and half hours long. It means you’re either a) trying to justify the budget to the investors, b) just blowing smoke you your own arse coz you think you’re worth it or c) you aren’t actually that good at story telling. I lose interest, my arse goes to sleep and I start worrying about the poor babysitter. And that’s just the CDs…
It’ll all see the light of day one way or other.
Good chats with record company. Have release date – May the somethingth. Perfect timing for the summer gigs. Currently working on ideas for a proper website finally as well as videos. Yes, actual videos!! – with us pillocks in ’em and everything!
And I’ve just remembered I get the rights back to EIMA next month! Has it really been that long?!
