Spring Has Sprung

I’d not been to FBi Social before Jordan Millar asked me to support him for his single launch. It’s now my favourite Sydney venue. Thanks to those who came out last night, bought CDs and listened to us play. It was a pleasure to play my music for you.

So I go under the knife in a few weeks and they are cleaning out and reforming the sinus tunnels in my forehead, cheeks and at my request, any other orifice in my head that may be constructed causing my headaches.

So The Boatshed gig with the band next week will be my last show for a little while so please come join us!

Wed. Nov 7 – 8:30pm – free
Old Manly Boashed
The Corso, Manly, Sydney

The Four Pines and The Empire gigs will hopefully be moved to Dec/Jan so stay tuned. Apologies for anyone who was planning to come.

I saw Aussie band, The Rubens and Aussie songstress, Lisa Mitchell last week and have to mention how impressed I was with the latter. I saw Lisa Mitchell play years ago and she has come forward in leaps and bounds. She was confident, engaging and cute.

I also have to note that The Rubens need a style overhaul. The private school boy look just didn’t do it for me, but they sounded great – as does their new record.

Hopefully see you Wednesday!

Pumpkin Head

As I lay in my sexy hospital gown pre-op, a young lad also getting his wisdom teeth out returned from the operating room. “David!”, I heard from a panicked voice two doors down. “David? Can you hear me?”
Young David had fainted as the nurse slid the bloody gauze from his mouth. I listened, horrified, as the nurse yelled for help and for an oxygen machine. Doctors and nurses sprinted past my door, along with the anaesthetist to revive David. I hadn’t eaten for nine hours or had but a drop of water for five. I was beginning to get pretty anxious and prayed I didn’t hear him vomit or that he didn’t die. Thankfully David didn’t die, nor did he vomit and neither did I. Nurse Michelle said I was the perfect patient and in comparison to getting my tonsils out, this has been a walk in the park.

I have been watching many delicious episodes of 30 Rock and eating yoghurt, soup and ice cream joyously!
I’m on the mend and apart from a sore jaw hinge and chowing copious amounts of antibiotics, I’m nearly better.

I will be playing Pony Room in Manly on Thursday night 8-10pm so come hang out and drink wine for me.

Jakey bought be some sweet Sony headphones and ill tell you what.. Music sounds so much crisper and dynamic than on the in ear headphones. I really encourage to get yourself a pair and marvel in the sound quality.

Daylight savings has arrived and it is awesome coming home in daylight. It’s also easier to get up in the morning. How does that work? I’m loving being back at work and how my brain buzzes with motivation and information. I do miss Jack and Ms. Lemon though.. Gosh they’re funny.

Some demo recording or perhaps an ep is in the works for the beginning of Nov. so standby for some fresh tunes!!

Hope you are all well and smiling..
