On Wednesday I travelled down to Bath to go and see Steve Osbourne and do some recording at Real World Studios again! This time The Courteeners were in the big room and I got to have a chat with them. They were so lovely and they told me they had listened to my stuff and they really liked it. They were naming songs and quoting lyrics too, so I knew they hadn't just made it up! Steve and I only had time to work on one song this time as I had to go home early for my gig on Friday! I am so pleased with it and I can't wait to put these tracks out!
So on Friday night I got to play a support gig with The Blockheads! Now I will admit that I am a late comer to Ian Dury, but I was so excited! Not only are The Blockheads the most talented people ever, but they are also the nicest and most down to earth people too! They all watched my soundcheck which was so scary, so scary, I can't even tell you how nervous that made me! And then i saw Mickey Gallgher sneak out from backstage and watch some of my set! ( He played with The Clash as well as Ian Dury!) The crowd were amazing, loads of the came up to me afterwards and said such lovely things, I have been sent so many messages congratulating me since the gig it is so overwhelming and we actually sold out of merchandise too! So thank you Milton Keynes! I will never ever judge on a Style Council song again! I am so lucky!
