god bless the second-hand ‘analog’ camera market, managed to pick up a pentax k1000 (with a couple of lenses) and a few roles of ilford xp2 35mm film for less than £50. cue photomania.
i think i’ve finally written 4 songs that will hang together as a recording. they’re the two that are on the myspace page plus a couple of others. i’ve been trying to track down a studio in a suitably rural location to record in but am in two minds as i know i’ll be able to do a more than satisfactory job with the most basic of equipment in my own front room. would it all look a bit ridiculous when i turn up at the huge studio with just my guitar and laptop? i feel it’d be a bit of a waste of sexy, exciting equipment. but there is a massive appeal in a going to the middle of nowhere and just having the music to concentrate on…although that probably sounds a bit wanky…
i think this probably counts as shameless self-promotion (albeit whilst feeling slightly apprehensive about the whole thing)…http://www.myspace.com/ashmannmusic
i’ve probably arrived at all this a bit late for someone claiming to be computer literate but i now fully intend to utilise the internet as an outlet for my brain with the assumption that these thoughts hold interest to someone other than myself. aces.
