Due to some kind of mix-up by the organisers, I’ve been incorrectly listed as playing at Record Store Day in Stirling on April 22nd. Please note I am NOT playing this event. Of course, don’t let that stop you going along!
The new Dog Moon Howl EP, These Days, is available now via Bandcamp on CD and pay-what-you-want download. The full digital release is also available via all the usual download stores (iTunes, Amazon etc.) plus streaming via Spotify et al.
One way or another, this is going to be a very busy year, for me at least. Got to get my tax return done for a start.
After that, the next few months will see new EPs from both The Craig Hughes Two and Dog Moon Howl (more news on them very soon). I’m looking into organising a series of self-promoted gigs, possibly marking the return of the old That Devil Music night. Limited edition runs of “hand stamped” CDs and tapes of my back catalogue are in the works. The websites (this one, Dog Moon Howl and Channel Nowhere) will be back in full working order and there will be regular updates over at the Ritual Objects blog.
I was in the studio with Ally Tennick last Saturday recording a live-in-the-studio session for an EP release in the new year. Knob-twiddling was by Tommy Duffin.
We played seven songs from some previous releases which have changed shape somewhat over the years on the live circuit – particularly as arranged for the duo – plus a couple of covers. The initial mixes are sounding good and I’ll be sifting through them as I get them over the next few days, settling on the best takes.
