Hey boys and girls.
Well, while the year is slowly kicking into gear, auditions are starting to come along and the first gigs are coming through, I want to tell you about a little success story of some friends of mine...
Anybody who has been following the charts recently will at some point have stumbled over Sandi Thom and her Janis Joplin-Like (almost-) A Capella single "I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker".
The feisty wee Scottish lass with her beautiful voice (who was in my year at LIPA) really doesn't need any publicity from me. But the fact that she's invited me to come see her gig at Islington Academy on Thursday and that she practically nicked my band deserves a little attention.
Yes it's true, three quarters of "The Magic 8-Ball" are currently the line-up for Sandi Thom. Not that it would be anything unusual. Marcus, Craig and Scotty have always proven themselves musical whores and moreover, a lot of us used to hang out together. I can't wait to hear them again!
If you haven't heard the album yet go and check it out. I like it a lot, and even if you don't: Buy it anyway! It's keeping my boys off the street.
Thanks for the invite Sandi, I'll see you on Thursday...
