Studio update 4

All has started well in the studio this year. I'm still making progress with the new album, even got a title in mind for it, and it's looking good to release sooner rather than later.

I've been rather pleased to discover that, with the help of my old friend Andy Guthrie, I've been able to get into files of really early tunes on old floppy discs, and also old sample discs, some going back as far as 20 years. (Hmm, why would I want to do that?). Good to know they haven't all turned to dust in the intervening years.

Outside the studio all is not quite so rosy. Our UK distributor went bust in December, in part due to Woolworths and EUK going under, so a bit of a hiccup there (don't worry, all the albums are still available from us by mail order and there's also the download store), but we'll sort it out and shake up our European distribution while we're at it so all will be in place for the new album release.

Now't more to say right now but more soon for sure.
