Hay Hay, Greetings from BH Towers
Mike (our intrepid jet-setting hi-tech guru) is in Canada this week, but that didn't stop him from phoning me from Vancouver airport just now to nag me to get out a newsletter... no probs mate, I'll head back to bed just as soon as I get this away :o)
So what's happening? Well, the big news is Nat Thunderthumbs may well be a dad by now! The Fluffster was admitted to hospital this morning so it could well be all over by now. I'm sure you'll join us in wishing them best wishes and love. Big Ceeegars all round then... !
There'll no doubt be a good number of you helping Nat to wet the babies head at the Black Horse Festival this Sunday... Bluehorses, Shooglenifty and loads of fantastic music, beer and stuff in a very big tent!
Bluehorses headline Sunday May 28th
Close on its heels is the Flowerpot, Derby on June the 10th
Next shows after that are at the Montreux Jazz Festival on the 8th and 9th of July.
For details of Bluehorses shows and a plethora of other stuff, keep checking out the website - there'll be some fab new features there very soon, courtesy of Magic Mike and the Robster.
I suspect from the number of Live at Saul festival DVDs we've posted off, most of you will have seen it by now... thanks for all the great emails, if you haven't received a reply yet - we're working on it! We have been a wee bit inundated :o)
If you haven't taken a look yet, there's half a dozen free sample clips to download...
Or just get in there and buy one now...
Please remember, we totally rely on your support and every purchase directly contributes to keeping the band on the road, in the studio and down at Tesco's.
Talking of which... the new material is sounding great! We've pretty much an albums worth of stuff now, so once Nat's recovered from giving birth, we'll be doing some serious final writing/ rehearsing sessions, then start the actual final recording process.
As usual, we're moving things on to different heights, depths and whatever the sideways bits are called (I tried widths, but it just don't feel right), and with it being Nat and Jays' first BH album there's a whole bundle of new ideas, influences and sounds being thrown into the cauldron.
Twill definitely be .......
Very 'eavy, Very 'orses
Well my friends, I must wish thee farewell and head back to the stable and the lovely Mrs Neddy. Have a good week and look forward to seeing/hearing from you very soon.
