so, Boy meets a nice Girl on the train. Boy and Girl have a nice chat about music, festivals, people getting married too young, blue's gigs etc. Girl is into photography and would like to get involved with doing album covers. Boy suggests Girl get's involved with the whole wupadupa thing as it would be nice to have some non-music artists involved with that. Boy sort of arranges to meet up with Girl sometime.
Just finished a new song about the whole Friend's Reunited thing. I didn't really get on with most of the people from my school days and the last thing I'd want to do is get back in touch with them ;) Also, been thinking alot about how people create these whole persona's for themselves on the internet and then just live their lives behind these fake persona's in a fake reality.
we have a new ep for sale. It's called the Candid Grandma EP and features the following tracks...
1. candid grandma
3. motorway song
4. absence of friends
5. no more said
plus a few other gems hidden away somewhere which are making some people call this an album ;)
It costs a fiver and is only available at gigs or if you happen to bump into one of us in the street and we have a CD on us...and you have a fiver.
well, if all goes to plan there might be a sugardrum EP for sale at the Small World August festy...
but plans have been known to go a bit astray from time to time....
just uploaded some new tunes to the listen page. There's a couple of new solo demos recorded at the weekend plus a couple of mixes from our forthcoming album due to be released er....soon ish... honest guv....
For our gig on May 5th that got cancelled I'd designed a silly flyer about things to do on May 5th. As the chances of ever getting to use the flyer again are now rather remote unless by fluke chance we can get to play the same venue again on the same day next year I thought I'd post the content of the flyer, which originally was on a nice and scruffy hand written note, phtocopied several times.
we're hopefully gonna have some new mp3's to add to the site soon so I've removed a couple of the old ones for now.
still busy recording - motorway song, limbo and new songs absence of friends and hut33 nearly finished. The Rhodes piano we have borrowed/stolen from Weston Green is probably one of the most loveliest and most inspirational instruments I have ever played on. We're hoping to go for a mixture of old and new songs on the album - if there's any that you particularly want to see on there then let us know.
here's another random piece of fiction from yours truly written for a competition to win a friend a giant whoopee cushion where the only criteria was to write a love poem for Whoopee Goldberg ;)
welcome to the new blog diary thingy and the new sugardrum site.
Things probably look a bit quiet in the world of sugardrum at the mo', especially on the gig front. We are frantically busy recording tracks for our debut album which doesn't leave much time for much else.
