What a great night in our rehearsal space last night...
We polished up the sets for this weeks two gigs with The Beards in both Edinburgh (Voodoo Rooms) & Glasgow (Broadcast). Also tested out a new new vocal mic that we are both very happy about, adding an extra dimension to Craig's vox, great addition (so far).
Then we finally got round to listening to the remixed new album tracks, and now feel we have almost reached the point where it will be good to go and get this album to the manufacturer.
Can now say though that the artwork for album has made us extremely happy, it has evolved through various different idea's but Ritchie (the designer) has absolutely surpassed everything we expected.
It seems that more and more are drifting away from having a physical product in the music world, but not us we love having a tangible thing in our hands that we have worked hundreds (if not thousands) of hours creating, evolving, practising, recording, editing and then coming to an agreement of the full design. To us both it is what we love doing all this for. It is a time stamp of where we are right now, a glimpse into our wee world of Dixie Fried. And what makes it even more worthwhile is the fact that people like you guys are listening and even buying - that also helps us fund the next batch of songs, so many many thanks to each and every one of you guys.
If you are coming to either gig this week, please come and say hello we love chatting to all, whether you like (or not like) a tune or think we need a haircut (or even grow some facial hair grrrr) ha ha ha
Keep it Dixie y'all
