Happy Birthday Blog (The Sequel)

My my, times flies... 

I just realised that this blog just celebrated his 2 year anniversary!

So many thanks to everyone who paid a visit from all around the world (mostly from the US, so cheers to my American friends) (and a special shoutout to Matrixsynth who's been nicely supportive of the site).

I'll  put up a little retrospective of the past year's finest bloggiest moments.

A Couple More Shots

From last saturday's gig. Less quality, but there you go...

November Acoustic

More on that later on, but I've just purchased a brand new preamp, that is, the fantastic Universal Audio Twin-Finity 710.

Here's a couple of acoustic renditions made with that preamp, both from the upcoming "Up the River" album.

Single du Jour : "1980"

Brand new little tune.

Moog Little Phatty and Dark Energy Doepfer for the synths.

"Funny how fortune bids us pause

And smooth the frowns of war

Let us cross over river, and rest under the sun

And sleep away my love

Happiness is thriving on the floor

Tonight the wine of life is drawn

Your face is a book

Of peaceful words

Where all the sorrow’s gone

I am not sorry

For, in my sense, tis happiness to die when you’re away 

 This is the way it always ends

That which should accompany old age,

As honour and friends

Who gives a damn?

Does nobody understand?"

Cover du Jour : "Mother Stands for Comfort"

This was initially done for the Cover Series, but I couldn't get a couple other tracks to work, so I'm putting this one up.
Both songs come from the outstanding "Hounds of Love" from one of my favorite artists ever.

More on the Cover Series, see : 

- Cover Series 1 : The Police

- Cover Series 2 : Queen

- Cover Series 3 : Bob Dylan
