TOTP

Last year I promised myself I would get involved in music as much as possible. I got as far as growing a beard (all musicians have beards, even the ladies).

This year I've promised myself I would get involved in music as much as possible. So I left the carnival band that I'm in. Good start eh?! I'm going to pursue my solo career!

I've just bought a new guitar, I'm starting a song-writing course in a couple of weeks, I'm getting bass lessons from a friend, I'm doing an analogue music course in the summer and I'm going to have a go at recording some songs with friends in Hastings.

My plan is to get a band together that will be asked to play at the Big Chill. It'll be called Diarama. Nice name eh?! And, of course, we'll all have beards.

mmm - I don't know - have you got a beard?!

I want it to be a mix of all my influences - so, I don't know, I imagine it being quite acoustic, a few weird samples. Basically, I've been listening to the Shortwave Set non stop for the last two days and I want to make music like that! No - I just want to BE in the Shortwave Set! Have you had a listen to it yet?
