Ipswich show this Saturday... (2nd May 09)

We are playing a show at a brand new venue in Ipswich, this Saturday 2nd May 2009. The venue is called QJam - it used to be called The Pool Club which is where me and a bunch of my friends played our first shows when we were young. They have stripped it out and rebuilt it as a custom-built music venue. Please come along and check it out and support new music venues.

Check out the facebook event here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=96345831549&ref=mf

I have been pretty much offline for a little while because of the room conversion I was babbling on about before. You can see some photos here if you're interested:

Did You Know

Hey, no post for a little while as I have been really busy. I am setting up a new mixing room for us to be able to work on new recordings every day, something we've never been able to do before as we've had to rehearse, write etc in the same place. I have had to take a step back from everything else in order to fit that in along with some new work stuff I am doing. My spare time recently has been spent going out with friends and getting messed up.

I really have nothing new to report. Things are good, the weather is getting better every day, which makes me feel great about everything. New stuff is coming, slowly but surely.

In the meantime, someone showed me this video and I like little facts like this so check it out:

Today

The dawn chorus had already begun when I went to sleep last night. I woke up and went straight to a production meeting for a project I've been working on since just before Christmas that is going to be one of the coolest things I've worked on outside of music. I got back and had a lengthy discussion about the acoustics in the new control/mixing room I am putting together at my house. The new room will solve the problem we have that our studio is out of use a lot of the time due to rehearsals and shows etc.

There is very little about my life that I am not passionate about, and little that I do not enjoy. I count myself lucky for this and do not take it for granted. I hope you can say the same, and if not are willing to work to make it happen.

Too Many Emails, Video and Twitter.

Gonna post here because my inbox looks a little intimidating right now. There are 39 emails that need me to file, reply, delete or do something. Not many I know, but I'm not in the mood right now.

We played a really last-minute show in Ipswich at the weekend and played a song that is waiting to have the vocal tracks recorded. Here's a video of the show:



As usual, the people on facebook and RSS won't be able to see that, so you guys have to click here.

By the way, we are on Twitter now - if you have twitter then follow us at http://twitter.com/onedaylife

James Taylor: One Man Band

If you live in the UK, you can check out this show on the iPlayer. The link is:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00b41h2/James_Taylor_One_Man_Band

It expires on Friday night I think.

It's a total slice of Americana, and I know it's not cool to like James Taylor, but f*ck it, those are some good tunes, and has a sound that's like being hugged by an acoustic guitar with big furry arms.  Also, check out the music-box style drum kit/machine they have...very cool.

Something to listen to...

This is one of those songs that just seems to be speaking specifically to me. You ever find that? When you're pretty convinced that the person writing it was inside your head for just long enough to put you down on paper. If you like this, please go and check out the whole album here.



For anyone reading this on RSS/Facebook etc. the audio/video won't show, so the URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6ZFYmzqcB8

Paloma Faith

Head over to www.myspace.com/palomafaith and check out "Stone Cold Sober". It's just a sample up there at the moment, but when it's released I will post back up here and remind you to DL it. The rest of the tracks are pretty much Duffy/Lily Allen/Amy Winehouse/Corinne Bailey Rae all over again, but that track has something special.
