New Video for ‘Django’ from Acoustic Industry E.P

Django

Before we go off on our musical jaunts over the next few months, we got together last Wednesday and sorted out a few loose ends as well eating PT’s most excellent home made Banana loaf…tasty !  A friend kindly put together a video for us using old black & white footage of Paris to the ‘Django’ track from the Acoustic Industry EP. It’s also on the Twisted Note Records You Tube channel. It makes us smile… hope you like !

Hobbles on the Cobbles

Looks like we are going to play the Aylesbury Hobbles on the Cobbles this year. It’s the August Bank Holiday weekend.. not sure yet what our slot is yet but as soon as we know it’ll be posted & linked etc. Monday night is writing night.. it’s taking some time to get another EP together as we keep diversifying. We probably have enough ideas, styles to probably put 2/3 EP’s together over the next year in between all the work stuff.

Have a great day.

Song 2 Bass Part

Recently we spent some time working on Song 2… great title I know but I’m sure it’s already been used. Song 2 is the highly imaginative working title along with song 1, song 3 etc. After getting some ideas going Pete found a bass part… kind of less is more. Very clever & works great against the Byrds type guitar chords. After getting some takes, we spent some time listening, editing, chopping and pasting.  A process which, whilst tedious to some, we both really enjoy doing. It’s a bit like being in a darkroom, it’s magic what you can do after taking the picture. (I know, cos I did a film photography course years ago in Brighton Uni. RB )

This batch of 5 tunes are songs and lyrics are being thought about. Not something that comes naturally… might even end being phonetic lyrics. It’s been difficult to get us in the studio at the same time this year, but we are persisting and keeping to our schedule of two nights a week as much as possible. It’s still great fun, no pressure and creative. There’s no deadline on the next EP, but it would be nice to get it done and finished sometime around March 2013. Our one gig this year in Aylesbury market Square in August went great and those that were there gave some really positive feedback. We were hoping to be playing at a small festival a friend runs down in Sussex called Applefest in October. If your into apples & all things cider then this is a great little event to go to. Unfortunately due to other commitments, neither of us can make it. Hopefully, well be able to do a few more gigs next year as the ‘Whimsy’ gets a little more organised.

We are currently looking at putting a video together for ‘Django’  off the 1st EP ‘Acoustic Industry‘ Preferably images from Paris 1930’s would be great as thats’s where Django lived, but it’s harder to find old footage than originally thought. If anybody has anything they think might be useful and doesn’t mind it being used (with credits if you like), could you let us know either from the contact form on this site or via the Twisted Note Records Facebook page.

Other than that, it’s sessions, writing, touring, recording for both of us over the next 3 months.

Have a great day.
