I'm in Cornwall at the mo, staying with my family. I've been most busy, going out with my laptop recording the sea, talking to the wind in the trees ;) and making a wee film. It's been a great week. I even managed to do a bit of sailing, coffee & ginger cake, carboot & fleamarket rumaging & mountain biking too :)
Went to a great gig at Miss Peapods in Penryn. Peter Walker (60s American guitarist) & Nancy Elizabeth were playing. I'd seriously check Lancashire lass Nancy out. Her music is sublime. She sometimes plays harp & piano, but used guitar on this gig. According to her website, she's working with a Japanese electronic artist on her next album. Now this I can't wait to hear! -
This morning, my brother & I hired sail boats at Stithians. The sun was shining & we had the whole lake to ourselves! I managed not to capsize on this occasion. I'm at my folks' house now, but am leaving soon to walk round to my brother's house for tea & a cowboy film. He'll no doubt subject me to a whole night of excerpts from his 70s prog rock / folk record collection...which I've seen & heard all before :0 :0 :0 Maybe there'll be a couple of obscure additions of bearded ones playing psychedelic flute whilst riding a unicorn.
If you can get round the gurning, it's a great tune. Jethro Tull -
Up at arse o'crack this morning to go to a carboot sale in Hayle. Picked up 2 keyboards (1 midi controller, 1 broken vintage organ (I will try to repair) (pictured bellow) & one obnoxious, rock star-esq, fake fur coat, which is rather smelly & needs a good Atlantic airing. Set up camp in the kitchen. This is where I'll be programming some beats using my laptop, kaosscilator & zoom drum machine.
Big bike ride today to Portreath (Bissoe trail) through old mining country where the water still runs red! Very sore bottom :0
