There’s nothing like the feel of a bass guitar in your hands. I spent the weekend laying down parts for the Horsemen album. A friend said to me ‘work with what you have: that’s your sound’. So I did. It was great to dig out the old Korg and play around with it. There are still settings used on our recordings from years ago.
It feels good to be able to move forward with this album thanks to some new gear and a renewed sense of direction. There’s been a lot of digital preparation for this record but on a record like this the pay off comes from recording with real instruments. It becomes about being present in the moment and capturing a performance. I also became mesmerised by the flashing lights on my tuner pedal and keyboard. They remind me of Christmas.
More music is on the way. I’ve put a new studio set up together and have been mixing a new EP featuring some unusual love songs. It should be ready within a month or so. More details soon.

A new Uffmoor album has been written. I’m practicing it and getting ready to record but there are a few other projects that have to take place first:
Paul and I are working on the Horsemen debut, a kind of mystical post-rock concept album which will feature some of the best indie guitarists we know.
Distant Signal are preparing to get back into the studio and record a new EP.
I was drenched through after running in the rain with a few friends on Saturday morning. The forecast said it would rain constantly over the weekend and beyond, so I dusted off my camera and decided to film it. Luckily, there was no shortage of skyfall and the video was shot and edited on the 28th and 29th of April, 2012.
The music is an as-yet-unreleased Uffmoor Woods Music Club track.
