Where does the time go.

Quick update on the happenings of the Hair Thieves.......

Not a lot is happening. I have a new job, which involves a sizable commute along the the hell hole that is the M6. Job is going well though and the commute isn't as bad as I thought it would be. But it has been leaving me knackered in the evenings, so not much of anything has really been done for the last month.

It is getting easier. I have restarted looking at the remaining two tracks for EP3. I've re-recorded the bass for one and played with the string section. I'm trying to arrange the other so I can get it recorded after Easter.

I've also been streamlining my recording studio. As such big chunks of it have been sold on Ebay.

In the meantime, I have also been working with local band SheBangg on their new single "Inspiration". If you read my other blogs or look at my Flickr site, then you may have come across the photos I took when they recorded the single, late last year. Inspiration on Flickr

Well, they have been around to mine and recorded an acoustic version of the track as a B-side to the single. It was a really enjoyable experience.

The single had it's official release party a couple of weeks ago. I opened the evenings entertaiment, by playing a short set, including the track "Bad Consumer" of the Hair Thieves forthcoming EP along with covers from The Wannadies, Rhiaana and Duran Duran.

The SheBangg single "Inspiration" is set for it's official release on March 31st!! To pre-order the single text the word shebangg to 82822 !! Don't forget to then download your single on March 31st!

I can't see anything productive being one before Easter now, but I do aim on getting on and finishing the EP ASAP after Easter. Honest gov...
