I have been travelling a lot.
Searching for ideas and kicks. The new record is mostly about girls and boys in exotic locations.
Primarily the Gold Coast. Which is tres exotic as you all know
Apparently if a cyclone ever hits the Gold Coast they are toast. And the footy teams are struggling. So it feels like edge city to me right now. Ripe for some good old Lou Reed style rock exposé. I know Gaslight Radio have written quit poetically about the Gold Coast ( see ‘Tina from Robina’ etc) but hey, i did my time rehearsing at the back of Burleigh too. Got out of there as soon as i could.
The record may be called ‘9 ROMANTIC CLASSICS AND A SONG ABOUT BIKERS’ or ‘INSPIRATION POINT’ or possibly ‘ DAN KELLY IV’
I know it’s taking a long time. I’ve gone from minimal to opus and now i’m heading back to minimal
It feels a little silly to be hanging out in Melbourne seeing a bunch of tremendously entertaining and uncluttered bands ( Dick Diver, Full Ugly, Twerps, Batpiss etc)
and then busting out a mega tooled prog epic again
not that i care what the folks think :)
And by the time this fucker actually comes out everyone will probably be sounding like Def FX again anyway
anyway that’s not much of a blog is it?
