Nerd up!

Thanks to everyone who made their way down to The Fleece for our Nerd up! Birthday celebration night. It was the most fun I've had playing and I had to spend large periods of the set looking anywhere but at a crowd of nerds to prevent myself cracking up and making a big mess of everything! Kudos to everyone who was pulling some very geeky shapes on the dancefloor, to Scott for his attempted breakdancing and Chris for his Cossack dance. It's a shame we didn't set up some camera's, we could have made a great music video. We threw in two of our new tracks, 'You Don't Have The Imagination' and Reinvention too, which fitted into the set well.

Anyone who missed the night also missed Chris' touching present to Jon and myself, a stunning rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody that saw the man at one point atop the bar firework in hand. I think we may have to take him with us to every gig from now on.

So it's nice to be back in the saddle again, things got a bit slow over the summer after deciding to take a month off to watch England try and string three passes together, bad idea. The football was rubbish and we were left devoid of gigs and twiddling our thumbs. Thankfully we're now gigging regularly and writing new material, normal service is indeed resumed. Writing is going well, we now have around seven tracks complete or near completion and this album idea isn't looking so ridiculous after all. Our search for a keyboard player is going well too and there may be some good news along the way.

Finally, I'm getting annoyed at work with all the Christmas junk that's already on sale, so to spread the Christmas joy, here's a little ditty by us...
