Some of you may remember a while ago I was asking for people to vote for my 'repeat to fade' artwork as part of the Brighton Music Awards. Well I am pleased to say that my ep cover has been selected and made the final three.

I believe the organizers of the awards now decide on who they want to win, which seems a bit bizarre to me, but there you go. The idea of a public vote which is then decided by committee just defies logic. What will the winner be based on? Is there a set criteria? Or will it just be who they like the most based on popularity? Who knows? Not me.

But its nice to get this far.

The awards are in November and have apparently already 'sold out' so I am not even sure if the people who are nominated will be going along?

I will update you all when I hear more.

Observations of Etiquette

Last night I played my 3rd gig as Amongst The Pigeons. Now that the initial fear has passed I am really starting to get into playing ATP live. I feel more confident to play around with the songs and experiment with effects and noises. It has also promoted me to make some new material as I am already bored with parts of the show and want a few new 'dance' hits to carry the weight.

I was on first last night and was followed by a band called 'Over The Wall' who were brilliant. Its very rare that I see bands I like anymore, but these two guys had some great songs and you could tell they loved playing. Go check them out!

The headline band were called Teeth, and my views on them are probably less positive. The band turned up about 9.15pm, having missed any sound check earlier on in the night. They then preceded to take 30 minutes to set up on stage. All they actually did was build a 4 piece drum kit and plugged a phono-out lead into a MacBook. It was all rather bizarre.

In my opinion bands should respect gigs and everything that comes with them, the traveling, the set up, the sound check, the timings. If you can't be bothered to respect the promoter and the people who come to see you play - why the hell should the respect you?

Anyway ...

I have a brief gap now before the next ATP:LIVE which will be on Saturday 13th November in Brighton @ 4.30pm!. For all the lovely details >>> Click here!

Brighton Live - the video proof

Last Friday I played the annual Brighton Live Festival on The Great Escape Stage in Hectors House. It would be fair to say it was an excellent gig and I had a great time. Selected highlights from the gig can be viewed in the following video:

I want to thank all of you that came along and if you are up for it, the next gig is on Wed 20 October. @ Jam in Brighton.
