Myself and The Brothers met last night at Deluxe to practise the Day Of The Dog songs. Going back to the day of recording, some (most) of these songs were first takes and some had never been played before (or after) the day. Being the exceptional band of semi-professionals that we are, we launched into it; and can I say it was a great joy to be back amongst it. The band is Nicky Del Rey, Ed Bates, Mark Ferrie and Cal McAlpine. Fine blokes all. We drank some beers and worked hard. We have our first proper new record show this Sunday at The Retreat Hotel and I’m greatly looking forward to it. See you all there. The Originals start at 7.30. We play 8.30-9.30. And it’s free!
