Here comes our boy JC again. There’s no stopping him now. He seems to be gripped by some special kind of groove-fever. Here’s his picks for this week.
Archive for July, 2008
During the recent Ebb euro travels, there were many questions (and rumours) regarding the progress of Ebb projects. Here’s the situation as of this morning.
The New Album:
Production is basically complete. There’s a couple of small items to finalise on two or three songs, but it’s basically there. Flood has voiced his desire to mix it, as always with Himself there is a question of availability. September is looking good for Flood right now. In the meantime, John O has been mixing as we complete work on songs. We’ll have to see how the schedule works out.
The New Record Label:
We are still in negotiation with various interested parties. Some very promising offers, and more coming in daily. Contrary to several rumours we have not signed with anyone as yet.
The documentary has been a bit delayed, for various reasons. We are meeting potential collaborators in the LA area to continue, and complete this project.
It seems reasonable to expect that the Album and Documentary will be complete before the end of 2008. Release date to follow as soon as schedule permits.
That’s the situation as it stands right now. More news as it happens.
An ideal morning for me, when I can get it, starts early, with silence, a cup of tea, and a sketch, in that order. LA is conducive to that, the morning sun is gorgeous. Here’s the first of several that stayed with me.
The Boy has been at it again. Whilst I, (dressed as Mark “Rollerball” Rocco), attempt to prevent The CrudGods, (dressed as Martin “Giant Haystacks” Ruane), from holding my shoulders to the canvas for more than a theatrical three count. Young JC has been huntin’, spinnin’ and groovin’ fit to bust his Chuck Taylors.
The Boy be moving to this:
This is truly bollocks. Despite being positively Disneyesque in my Chipmunk-ishly robust approach to carpe-ing the bleedin’ shytte out of the sodding deim, the Gods of Travel Crud are having none of it. They are attempting the old “naysay/cockblock/smackdown” combo at every turn, the rotters!
Well, two can play at that game. I’ll see yer NCS combo, and raise yer! Sort THAT out CrudGods!
Being, like, incredibly old, incredibly busy, and living incredibly in LA, I don’t get much of a chance to check out the festival scene in Europe these days, (unless I happen to be performing – or not – as the case may be). I decided it would be favourite to enlist a steadfast Young Lion Of Rock to go have a snout and report back. Who better than our very own JC? Armed only with a fistful of Euros and some beer, loins duly girded, he waded in. Here’s what he saw and heard.
