Well, there goes 2020: thank fuck.
I won’t labour the point – this year can only be an improvement…
Anyway, finished an album which I plan to release mid-2021 – probably my best yet – and a few other bits and pieces, so on a personal level there’s little to complain about. Also, NBTMusic Radio voted The Seizure 195 in the top 400 albums of 2020, which is gratifying. Have a listen, see what you think. Already feels like a long, long time since it came out (end of 2019, actually, so about a century in covid years)… I’m confident the new stuff’s even better, and hope to get it in front of you soon.
Nothing doing yet on the gig front, obviously – did a few streamed things on facebook & youtube in the first half of last year, which went well enough… I guess, it’s hard to tell when you’re serenading your phone… but it’s a bit too message in a bottle, too inhuman, for my taste. (And without the bit at the end of the night where you pack up and leave the venue, it’s really hard to wind down afterward – all that adrenaline and nowhere to go: you’re already home, amid the too-familiar objects. And since I don’t get drunk anymore, no way to zone out. Ah well.) Laying plans for when things start to move again, though. Meanwhile, do check out the Music Venue Trust’s Save Our Venues campaign – be good to have somewhere left to play!
To better days
