Shock, Horror and Christmas


Here is a brief end of year round up / hopes for next year type thing.

It's been a very strange year indeed. We had a rough plan at the start of the year of what we wanted to achieve. Some of which we achieved, some of which we didn't.

New jobs, house moves, bereavements, relationship implosions etc seem to have conspired against us this year.

We managed two of our three planned EPs. EP3 has been mostly written, but is waiting to be recorded. The proposed album is probably, (and I guess) 50% written and this will probably be our main focus in the coming months.

We did the first Hair Thieves live perforance since 2002 this week at an open mic night at The Lounge in Bridgnorth.

We did three songs, Break the Casino, Apotemnophilia and a cover of The Connells song 74 -75. Not much, but at least it is a start.

So hopefully, we'll do a lot more of that, get the album fnished and the next EP out and then search to expand the line-up so we can do some full gigs.

Shame Christmas has got in the way, I think the next few months are going to be rather exciting. I'm rather looking forward to it.

Hope you all have a very happy Christmas and an excellent new year.
