Album, Video, Gigs, Painting, Boom Booming...
The second album is now released. It is called Threewheeling
and features ten new songs written by me, played by George, Drew and myself, and produced and mixed by Gareth Parton. You can find it here
, a hot new record label based in Venice, California. And it's great! I'll be putting some of the tracks up on the MySpace
page in the next few days, so check it out.
Oh and we have made a video of our last gig at The 100 Club. It was shot by Jon Slade with help from Phil Chappell and Jack, and edited by Jon and George. You can find three numbers from it at YouTube
. We had a screening of the whole performance at a preview theatre at Sky TV on New Year's Eve. Friends, family and the Sky massive showed up. We got in some booze. Sat back and saw ourselves playing on a cinema-sized screen. What a way to mark the third anniversary of the band!
The artwork for the album is an oil painting of the Trio by the acclaimed artist Julie Bennett
. Julie is one of the Saatchi Gallery's "rising stars". We sat for her (well, stood actually) in our rehearsal studios in Acton and this superb triptych
The new year kicked off with gigs at the New Bull & Butcher in Whetstone and a return to the always welcoming Boom Boom Club in Sutton, both in the company of the admirable Ruthless Blues.
We are officially launching Threewheeling
with a couple of shows at The Windmill in Brixton this Saturday (Feb 9) and The Grey Horse in Kingston the following Wednesday (Feb 13). Come along and catch up with the new songs, and all the other news, there.
