Sunny Govan Radio Reggae Show

They’re going to play our demo track “Baby” on the reggae show at Sunny Govan radio tonight, sometime between 9 and 11pm. That track seems to be attracting some attention and I wasn’t originally going to put it on the demo at all. I was persuaded that it was a goer by a female friend. Maybe it’s a male/female thing.

In fact I was stuck writing this song for several years until I played the opening line to Leroy Jones aka Jah Dave. He loved it and gave me a few lines for the lyric that helped me get the song finished. Leroy is a great singer in his own right and also plays percussion for The Congos.

You can hear it on 103.5FM in the Glasgow area or online at sunny govan radio between 9 and 11pm.

Lovely Scottish Summer

Rain on my window…

I’ve had my head down in the studio over the winter and will have some music to show for it quite soon. There are no gigs planned yet though and the new tracks are all songs so it will be different.

I hope to have an album finished by later in the year but also to release a few tracks quite soon.

Anyone hoping for more of the same could be disappointed but if you were intrigued by the instrumentals and just wished there was a singer, you might just be in for a treat!

Eskdalemuir and Beefheart

We were in a surreal snowy zone high on the moors between Lockerbie and Eskdalemuir when Luke told Adam and me that Don Van Vliet was dead. That was a poignant moment, we were on a crazy mission to play a gig in one of the remotest parts of the UK while the rest of the country was falling apart in weather chaos. The gig went really well.

We all love Captain Beefheart’s music. This one’s interesting…
