10 July 2019 Nothing happening, can't listen, can't write, sorting out cleanup for Flying Tadpole's Travelling Blues Band before pre-purchase and August launch, I fear July is a write off, lots of non-music things, library and legal deposit things, catching up, re-arranging a whole floor after the gasline got put in, outside messes. What a mess.
5 July 2019 PLANS PLANS PLANS of mice and men...I'm going to put out, by Christmas, a Collaborations album--current title "ColLaboratory Rat"--with my more formal FAWMal and 5090 collabs on it. Going back through the years too. See http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/pretty-please . Also (I hope, if enough material happens) to put out another collab with a very different feel. So that's two albums. And there's a steady supply of programme/background/melancholic piano/orchestral stuff. And I'll try again at epicness.
4 July 2019 Up and down ladders, working on window vents, no listening it's going to be a long slow start to 5090. Lots of stuff to do non-music, Deborah still not able to do anything much, so it goes. Sigh.
2 July 2019...AN IMPORTANT WARNING...don't give your imaginary friends any credit on your recordings! It's bad enough I'm stuck with Flying Tadpole as a separately recognised recording artist, but now Flying Tadpole is stuck with Flying Tadpole's Travelling Blues Band as a separately recognised recording group. Otherwise "They" wouldn't allow the album into public distro!.
26 June 2019 ...and off we go. I'm in the final stages of production of "Flying Tadpole's Travelling Blues Band", after a successful Kickstarter to get the compendium of 5090 and FAWM Flying Tadpole songs up and out. Almost at the point of sending rewards out to all the lovely backers, and then I can turn, briefly, to 5090. I'll launch the public release probably mid-August now.
I KNOW I was here 10 years ago, in 2009! I've got the archive and opera to prove it! Anyway, I followed @Hummingbird in. 2016 & 2017 were pretty dire, and I missed most of FAWM2018, but 2019 was great! So I'll try leaping into 5090 this yeartoo. I'll still beerratic in presence and absence, with fortnight absences inevitably...apologies in advance.
