I've been working on a song and I thought I'd write a cheeky little blog before lunch. It's nice to have something to show for a morning's work, lately I've been doing a lot of production work, which only changes something you already have, and a lot of organising, which involves looking around the internet and emailing people. Even when not getting distracted and actually doing it, those things don't give you that feeling of accomplishment that either writing or recording do. But when I woke up today this song didn't exist and now... It kind of does... A bit!
The organising I mentioned has been mostly for Summer in the City. Looking for a venue that will allow under 18's in is no mean feat... But I think I've found one. I'm going to go have a look at it when I'm next in London (15th for Kweller!) It will be 14+ and I think that's the best we can hope for, I will have to apologise to any under 14's but they can still come to the daytime part of the gathering. We also have some t-shirts in the works, should be seeing some samples soon, then if it's all good we will start selling them and the profits should cover the venue fee and any other expenses. That's the plan anyway!
Oh and music plans at the moment, I have three tracks that don't really fit in with the other 10 - 12, because they're electric with drums and stuff, so I'm going to put those on itunes on their own, before the rest. I'm adding a fourth because three would really just be a single, four I can call an EP. The fourth is what I've been working on today. Once these songs are up I'll work on the rest, then once everything is on itunes I'll work on a CD, which will include a couple of the tracks from itunes but possibly re-recorded and some newer stuff. I'll be able to put some extra money into the CD because I'll have some from the itunes sales. It all fits together quite nicely, ya see? It'd be nice to get that done by Summer in the City, that's the target I have in my head.
Right, I'm hungry.
