Hopefully this coming weekend is going to provide my last opportunity to go fishing again for quite some time. The season ends next month, when we are touring, until the summer. I will take one spinning rod and a few lures on tour with me. The weather has precluded any quality fishing for some time now and time is running. The photo above is one of my favourite spots on the Suffolk Stour. I have had many a good fighting pike out of here as well as the odd good perch. Wish me luck.
The EBB had a very productive weekends rehearsals last weekend and will be rehearsing again in a couple of weeks. I never enjoyed rehearsing in the past as much as I do these days. We are trying to integrate a couple of new things in the show. We've put Poppy in, have put Green lights back as well as The last electioneer. We have been kicking around a new song called Soldiers of the light and with luck it will be included. Some of our projected new plans have had to be curtailed due to time constraints. We have another T-shirt design and will be re printing the Original Rebel shirt. The DVD is out in the UK in March. Luke and I will probably put out a small collection of new songs soon working title The First Course.
As you can see we have fixed the problem with the blogs in as much as there is a current First Supper and the archived 2006 First Supper. I hope you like the new addition in the shape of Exhibits From A New Museum. I wanted to have a space just for pics with out tying them to text.
Steve suggested we might call the new First Supper the Second Supper but as he some times says - "Trust me I am a drummer", so there you go. I have a friend who says - "Trust me I am a Social worker". I am not sure which is the best option. I suppose I should be thankful Steve is our drummer and not our Social worker.(lol)
Steve Boyle aka Shoreham_Steve sent me a link to his photographs which I am putting here http://www.stevejboyle.co.uk/ because in my opinion they are really worth looking at. There are a good few crackers in the collection. Enjoy!
Well back to the grind stone. I have a load of DAT s, cassettes, mini discs and quarter inch tapes to check for the new CD. Still it's better than working for a certain Borough Council which I will be doing again, later this evening. There is an Ofsted inspection of their Youth Service scheduled for October and if you can imagine a rabid dog chasing it's tail that is what is going on. As our good friend Story John Edgar wrote in a recent email to me - "Having also been a performing arts lecturer in FE and HE for several years, I've always had a hard spot for those who hand down edicts from above and then leave those down in the swamps to deliver". Aye!
A new competition will be posted here in the next few days as soon as it seems folk know how to get comments on here so, keep looking. The prize will be the same exclusive songs and a copy of Superchip. So, leave a comment - let us know you still care after the recent IT machinations.
