First festival where we've run 30 minutes of ahead of schedule due to speed of changeovers.
Theo says that's the fastest changeover yet, and he's been doing this a while.
Well done to Garry.
If I was to express exactly how pleasant a moment in space/time we had today, you may think me overwrought from the drive.
When the fancy strikes me I will post some of the amazing cloud photos.
Here's a moment of Matt Southon, a perfect example of Laminar Flow.
Legit Matt, strict legit bro.
I'm itching to make some videos. A few tracks have popped up that would be good to do. Maybe, if we get some space over the Christmas period, I'll get a chance.
Meanwhile, getting ready for the C.R.A.B this weekend.
Thanks to Carlo B. What an effort.
Thanks to Den, Wayne, Bonnie, Matt and the rest of the folks supporting an artist run festival.
Thanks to the Cellar Fellers for their hard work.
Thanks to Rotary, the volunteers and the weather gods.
Thanks to Garry for doing sound.
Thanks to Tara for arranging transport and to Charlie for accom.
Hence. not much blogging.
Did I mention I wanted to do some videos?
Thanks to Linz for Talent Scouting over the years.
I got more stuff to do.
Jonesy played 100 tracks, back to back on his radio show.
6 hours of Stormcellar. I'm not sure if that's dedication or Audio Warfare. I don't think I could do 6 hours of us!
You madman Jonesy!
We are in excellent company at the inaugural Cooma Country Roots & Blues Festival - the Cooma C.R.A.B.
Sunday 18 Nov, we're on around midday. Woot.
Big ups to my Mayfield Homies, you know who you are.
A grand night for a drive up North.
Cheers to Colin on Sound & Lighting. Way to go.
Also thanks to Dr Rock for keeping me company on the drive and to all the folk who came out last night.
Bill & Mr Wizards special project is continuing to deliver good results.
Only 5 songs from Rogue State have made it into the set so far, there's more work to be done.
What we need though, is...more songs.
Yeah it's that time.
We regularly rotate though songs. Sure there are keepers, then there are Evolved Versions. Also a few favourite covers that demonstrate some respect to the Masters.
As we move into summer, it's time for new stuff.
With the completion of recent recording there's some more space to write, as well. Bill & Mr Wizard were hard at it on Friday brewing another batch.
Plus we're reviewing what other songs we might try. A few from local friends, maybe a few other hero bands.
It's spring, a good time to plant seeds.
As Dr Rock observed on the drive, we spend a lot of time thinking through what we do.
When you have a good night, as a result of that thinking, rehearsing, planning and consideration for each other, it seems worth the trouble.
Shout out to Mark, Sandy (next time!) and to all the folks who joined us last night.
Another road trip this week.
