Okay, so my Mazda is still in the garage being worked on, and the nights are drawing in so I’m working on some “catbait” 🙂
Some cute things about my cat include when it knocks at my office door when I’m not in there… and also at night when I go to the loo and it won’t let me go back to sleep as it wants to lay on my chest like it did when it was a kitten (bad habbit) but it’s furry and warm so I don’t mind! He won’t shut up until I lay flat either!

Having worked and been associated with Club 85 in Hitchin for many many years, I know first hand what it’s like having people move in to the locality of a long established music venue only to complain about noise levels. To add, most venues need to follow local council regulations for noise anyway. Eg. After 12 or 1 am the PA has to be turned down/off.
I know people say it all the time, but I truely believe that Spotify has revolutionized the way people listen to music in this time and age.
No where else can you go and sample music without purchasing the track. I know it’s not brilliant for the artists but then those who will buy the albums still will on iTunes or in physical format and so on.
For me it has opened up doorways and allowed me to discover more than I could possibly have ever done by listening to a radio station or at live shows.
At school I got recommendations from friends, and I would then go and torrent those tracks. At least with Spotify I can do it legally! And I am one of those people who will go and buy the album to support the artist if I want the whole thing.
Yeah this is a late post, I’ve been a little busy with other projects recently. Which is also a reason why I’ve decided to focus my efforts elsewhere. I’ll still be involved with music over at Club 85 and Rhythms of the World.
I am not going to stop working with music, but this has given me a chance to relax, take a step back, and support other ventures.
In the future I may bring it back, but like all good things, some things are best laid to rest.
To the future!
