Friday 30th January

January 31, 2009

First of all, apologies for last night’s uncoordinated drivel… that’s what comes of trying to write ambitious blog posts when you’re completely exhausted and only really fit for bed.

A vintage year

January 2, 2009

From a personal, non-musical perspective 2008 was not a good year for me and I am very glad to see the back of it. The uncertainty brought by illness to those closest to you is more than enough to take one’s mind away from trivialities such as music. Add car accidents, a busy dayjob and […]
