we did a gig today

Jessica sang 6 songs with me, and special guset Beat Riggenbach this afternoon, at a semi-private party today near Basel. I played piano and Cajon, and Jessica sang. It was our first public appearance with the "new" small idea of just me, Jessica, some backing tracks and maybe a guitarist (still to be found) I haven't forgotten our "new" song (likes to put the word "new" in inverted commas today) just need a bit more time to get some real guitar on it.

some people have more time than me

I'm constantly amazed at what songs people choose to make midi files from (and where they get the time without government grants etc.)

Here are 3 of my favorites covering the whole gamut from sublimo to ridiculo

the thunderbirds theme

steely dan's "aja"

Jethto Tull's "thick as a brick" - yes all of it!!

Get it, and tell us what you think of it

oh yes and we're doing a gig in Basel

we are reforming the "old" band for a one off gig on the 18th June (under the old name - "dust") at the 9 stadium in Bubendorf - we couldn't really not do it as it is a chance to do another stadium gig with a great sound team. And a great chance to reach about 5000 people - see you there

what wearedust iz listening to right now

We are really enjoying "white bread black beer" by scritti politti
