Tabernacle gig – 1st gig under our belt

We had  a good time last night… Thanks to fans and friends for making it a great night!, but its always tough in The Tabernacle with a band… Anything above “quiet” and “one man and his guitar” becomes  too loud and indistinct even if you are playing softly in “acoustic mode”

I hear somebody turned up to see me, was told I wasn’t playing so promptly left. Apologies to whoever you are. Please get in touch!

Saturday 30th July

Next gig with the band we will be cranking it up to the max, and it will be filmed for broadcast by TFTV at AAA, Kensington High Street, on Saturday 30th July. Should be  a special night. the TFTV guys always deliver a great night with plenty of diversity

website tabernaclew11.com 

Looking forward to final rehearsal with the band today – time to break out the camera methinks.

Having recovered from a  touch of “Barcelona Belly”, Yardbirds Guitarist Ben King has been driving himself nuts with playing in my weird altered tunings

For some unknown reason, bassist Justin Bikram has been imagining big horn sections in all the songs… Whatever makes him happy!

Drummer Simone Freddi  will no doubt be contemplating this weekend’s sports fixtures

…whereas I will be momentarily thinking of our poor mud-soaked friends at Glastonbury this weekend (they might get lucky on Sunday)

Dave Pensado and Jack Joseph Puig – mega producers

Great interview on Dave Pensado’s  pensadosplace youtube channel:

Really cool discussion about mixing techniques and “home productions”

Dave Pensado and Jack Joseph Puig are mixing legends who have worked with the biggest names in pop and rock eg Black Crowes (one of my favourite albums Amorica), No Doubt, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, to name a few

Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell – “The Age of autonomy”

Great insightful interview with one of my all-time favourite singers Chris Cornell of Soundgarden:

http://www.3news.co.nz/Chris-Cornell-talks-Soundgarden-and-life—full-interview/tabid/551/articleID/215669/Default.aspx

Superunknown was one of those albums I would listen to tirelessly… and then years later I discovered that they had released another album after that: Down on the upside a fantastic raw punky behemoth, very different to Superunknown but equally compelling.

I always loved Chris Cornell’s colourful lyrics – they always have a surreal twist that conjours up vivid mental images… Quite psychedelic.

And I have always shared the love of altered tunings with Soundgarden, although I didn’t get the idea from them – That was Joni Mitchell

The Yardbirds break out a psychedelic favourite

The Yardbirds

On our last gig we introduced a psychedelic classic “Glimpses” into the set, which went down a storm with the fans.

An intrepid Yardbirds fan was ready with the cam and special FX palatte:

We will definitely keep this one in the set for the forthcoming Yardbirds US tour

Andy Mitchell – Rehearsals for upcoming gigs

Had a great first rehearsal with the whole band. It was great to hear the songs in  a differernt light.

As the next couple of gigs are more on the acoustic side we are adapting the set slightly. Sounds magical!

Yardbirds Guitarist Ben King is doing a great job adding some lovely atmospheric electric guitar tones

Bassist Justin Bikram and I go back a long way, but this is the first time we have worked together. His McCartney-esque style is adding a very cool flavour to my tunes.

Drummer Simone Freddi and I have worked together a lot previously, and it is wonderful, nay, awesome, listening to he and Justin locking in and grooving.
