We had an absolutely wonderful time at Custom Space Studios today. The music and the playing was terrific. I laid down some acoustic guitar and then Steve Dolder played his Beat Boxx on a track. I declared his drumming “beautiful”, an adjective I’ve never used for drums before (Steve said he’d never heard it before either). Then Dave Ditchburn sang Fathers Father like he had his bare feet planted in the soil and was singing for generations of working men. Jim Hornsby played some soaring slide and we then finished off with Dave singing “Guy Walks Into A Bar” like he’d lived the story (and he most probably has) We followed the not trodden path in our music making, it was all organic instinct. But best of all was the conversation and the laughter from start to finish.

We laughed a lot. We even spent a brief time talking (and laughing) about our respective mortality. Hence the reason for one of the two album title suggestions that came up.
