Thanks a squillion to the folks who are buying this little live-gig-fundraiser bandcamp thing.



I'm tryna sell a hundred copies,
the plan,
to frame and fashion a studio album
before the year feckin' ends.

I think it's a great time of year for releasing stuff.
Summer for gathering stories,
Winter for sharing 'em.

19 souls have already parted with their shekels, setting my heart aglow.

The gig itself, I played last month in Berlin.

Hosted by a lovely violin-maker named Matthias Von Wallbrunn.

He makes cellos too!
Once, he put sellotape on a crack on my guitar, which was way more helpful than it sounds.


Actually, I was going to start the show with the new stuff straight away but remembered that Matthi had this little acoustic in his workspace, one that I've heard many a fine tune sung with.
The first instrument he built.
I've oft heard it strummed by fellow Atelier 3/4 resident Dave, who paints magnificence in another corner of Atelier 3/4 .



It really is a lovely space.
They have musical nights there from time to time,
I've had the pleasure of experiencing a few.
It was special sharing new tunes and old friends.
A charged and colourfilled setting, I talked some amount of shite, though, so,
I'll be taking it offline when I hit a hundred.

In explanation,
I don't want this online forever, I don't think it's an internet thing long-term,
I certainly like that it exists but, if you're online,
you're probably in the middle of doing something else.

There are other newbies to come
#ImpendingRelease.
They weren't played this night but I'll waffle about them soon.

I HAVE to record here.
Some of the fine folk here in Vienna
they fair know how to capture sound.

A toast to new things soon.

p.s.
I wanted to keep this thing as one track because... well, I didn't want it cut up.

Save it for headphones and a 49 minute bus journey.
