Yesterday I put my album up on Bandcamp and posted some links on Twitter, facebook and myspace. Bandcamp is great - really high quality downloads - MP3 apple lossless ect. The deal was a Radiohead style "pay what you want". The response has been really good, lots of downloads and the amazing thing is people will still pay. They want to pay for music and support the making of new music(I'm defiantly not into profit at the moment). Even better some people have spread the word via facebook and myspace. Restores your faith in humanity.

For The Fallen With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, England mourns for her dead across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres, There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again; They sit no more at familiar tables of home; They have no lot in our labour of the day-time; They sleep beyond England's foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound, Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, To the innermost heart of their own land they are known As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain; As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain.

We recorded loadsa stuff - acoustic guitar, live drums and bass, electric guitar, percussion, 10 songs done - really pleased. Here is a video of kev messing up a drum loop(played by him) with a Kaoss Pad).
Good fun indeed.
Now time to mix the bloody thing,
Any ideas for an album title?

My Friend Julia suggested a gear page for my website with the pedas ad stuff I use - I'll add one soon - great idea.
Goals for this year:
Spend more time with my wife
Book a week of gigs next year across the UK
Get my second album finished
Get Ableton Live and move my looping set up across
Do some more duo gigs with kev or maybe start a full band project?
