In Creative News: I finished the Storm-Pilots “In The Attic” EP last week – though I have consequently rebranded the group as The Nightworks). You can get the EP by clicking here: NIGHTWORKS EP.
I awarded myself a bronze medal for that achievement.
I’ve formed a new band called The Winter People OR The December Club (we’re undecided). We boast two violin players, two guitars, bass and drums. So the sound has multiplied! We are currently trying to lock down a piano player.
I am really quite excited about this group, because it finally qualifies as a genuine musical collective, a crew, a troop, a congregation – not just an intimate gathering, but a noisy assembly, that requires comments like “Ok, come on everyone, quiet down now, lets get started” … exciting!
I have some large scale plans for the uni holidays once my exams are [finally] over. I am hoping to produce two solo EPs, one as Typewriter – “Love Songs For All The Ones Who Never Loved Me Back” (the slowest & bitterest of folk ballads) & one as Thomas North “Sawdust Stories” (A few of the faster-paced blues numbers). But my main mission is an EP for The Winter People, with which to launch us into Sydney consciousness.
Also I am hoping to forge some bonds with budding film-makers, and get a zero-dollar-budget film clip shot for track 2 from the “In The Attic EP” – “Ghost House”. I’ll update on that, if it comes to fruition.
Ok I think that about covers it for now. Till next time world, don’t get your shoelaces stuck in the train-tracks.
