I haven't been blogging much lately because, apart from The Ongoing World Situation, I haven't had a lot to report. However, ironically, The Ongoing World Situation does mean that there's a bit more going on ROCK-wise than there otherwise would have been!
For instance, we had to cancel last week's Totally Acoustic because The Government told everyone not to go into pubs, but this gave me the idea to see if we could maybe take the whole thing ONLINE. I got in touch with the acts who were meant to have been playing last week, as well as some of our previous participants, to see if they fancied taking part in some VODCASTS, and I am delighted to say that, starting this Wednesday, we'll be doing a series of VIRTUAL Totally Acoustics. If all goes to plan each show will have three acts doing a couple of songs each, plus ME doing one as usual to kick it off. They'll be pre-recorded rather than live because it's a LOT less hassle to do it that way, technically and also in terms of getting everyone together at the same time, and it ALSO also means you'll be able to watch them whenever you want.
The first one show feature Uke Fat Bar Steward, David Leach, and Helen McCookerybook, with next week's seeing the long-awaited return of Orange Nichole alongside whoever sends me their videos in before now and then! There'll be links at the end to everybody's bandcamps/webpages too, so you can buy some music from the acts instead of the whip-round. I think this could be Quite Good, but let's see how it goes!
While planning this I've also had a look through the settings for my YouTube account and realised that there are a few recordings of old shows that I have never unleashed on the world at large, and so I thought I might inflict a couple of those on everyone, commencing with this previously unseen live recording of Moon Horse VS The Mars Men Of Jupiter, HERE:
The quality of the video isn't brilliant, but the quality of the PERFORMANCE is quite frankly ASTONISHING. It made me laugh anyway, and I'd already heard all the jokes, so I hope you enjoy it too. If we're all still at home by the end of the week I might unleash the live recording of Total Hero Team next!
