This week I have been trying to concentrate on writing. I love writing, thats why I always write this blog, a bit of me thought that I would never bother to keep it up but I am doing alright! After playing with The Blockheads last week I have been speaking to Chaz Jankel. Chaz is the songwriter/ guitarist / pianist in the band and we have spoken about writing some songs together! So I have been trying to get my head down and do a bit of songwriting so I have something to show Chaz when we get together! Chaz has written some really cool songs, please please go and google him if you don't know them already! I usually start by writing the music but I plan to go to Chaz with just lyrics. Its quite nice to just write words and not have to worry about them sticking to a rhythm yet….!
This weekend I played at the 100 club supporting Rhoda Dakar, she was in The Specials AKA and The Bodysnatchers! The 100 club is such a great great venue! It is so iconic! Everyone has played there and theres so much history in the room. I asked about and I found out what pillar it was the Sid Vicious threw the glass at and blinded the girl (its the one closest to the dressing rooms!) Rhoda is really cool and it was a great crowd!! Theres nothing better than ska done properly!
I set off for Glastonbury on Tuesday, I am excited but so nervous too! xxxxxxx
