Last few weeks we have been looking back at what we have achieved so far this year, and easy to say we are both very happy feeling very lucky to be where we are.
Gigs have been great this year, in new towns & cities, in new venues (and old) with a lot of new acts that have really took our breath away at times. The reception we have received at almost every gig has feel very grateful that people are enjoying and really digging our tunes and vibe.
Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee & Perth are just incredible places to play music to an ever eager audience. And we cannot wait to come back as soon as we possibly can.
We have hid away the last few weeks to just jam again. Just the two of us, and let our juices flow in whatever direction we want. It is very very liberating. No restrictions on making sure each song is on the money for each gig. That the song order compliments each different gig. No beating yourself up for missing a beat or a change in riff. Just jamming. Try it, bloody wonderful stuff.
We have found ourselves go down roads we haven't travelled before, and others we haven't wandered down for years. All feel great to visit, and I dare say we will be back down those ways again real soon, when we are finishing off the next batch of tunes.
For instance last night we found ourselves wandering in the creative pool of rock, from Rage Against The Machine to Led Zeppelin then back towards the original Fleetwood Mac and falling straight into some cooking Eddie Cochran. All in all a bloody great night, and maybe the makings of at least another two brand new tunes.
Hope to get back in the studio, and have some finished products before the end of the year.
We have a couple of charity gigs coming up in October, that will release more news about very soon but for now can say Bathgate on Friday 3rd & Glasgow on Saturday 11th. Very happy to be asked to play both, as all charities are something we very worthwhile causes.
Keeping it Dixie for y'all
