Good news! After probing the depths of my soul with various psychic implements i have managed to write 17 songs. Thats about 33% of my total life output! God knows what else i’ve been up to but I am proficient in middle eastern cooking styles, can swim 1500 metres in 22min30 sec and can hold forth on a variety of esoteric topics if plied with perfume and negroni. I have found a fabulous new group of gents to help me record the next album, including Dave Williams from AugieMarch and the preternaturally connected duo of Indra Adams and Dale Packard from the Ground Components. We head up to Daylesford on the First of October to record what will probably be called ‘The Decommissioner‘. I intend to blog the whole thing. Hopefully these blogs will be the basis for my episode of ‘Classic Albums’. Otherwise you can use it as a how not to’ manual. Useful either way! So thanks for waiting around for three and a half years while I read Bruce Dawe on the loo. The time for action is now! Attached is a photo of me looking homo erotic with my hero Joel Silbersher.
