Open Dischord

July 13, 2014

I love playing live music, and Dischord has been a great way to enjoy this vice with little time commitment. The entire premise of the band is that we simply roll up on the day and improvise. We’re comfortable enough to mess about and we “win” by making beautiful music.

Dischord’s next gig is this coming Sunday 20th July in the Bandstand at Walsall Arboretum, and we’re throwing the doors wide open. Do you play an instrument well enough to jam in public? Pop down and give it a throw. We won’t judge you, (although the audience might!) and you might find it’s something you enjoy. There’s a Facebook event page and everything.

Even if you don’t want to play, please do come down and have a listen. We’ll be playing laid back music from 2 til 4(ish) for anyone who walks past.

Triathlon Complete

June 17, 2014

I completed the Walsall Triathlon on Sunday. The aches and pains after weren’t as bad as they may have been, and I seem to have turned in a decent swim time even if overall I was last but one. I still got round though: finished a few seconds under the mentally significant two hour mark. Not bad, for a first timer.

Beachy Head is the tallest coastal chalk cliff in the UK. Beautiful white expanses of rock over a hundred metres tall rise from the sea in majestic splendour.

Music Theory – “Core” or “Chore”?

May 1, 2014

I’m founding a school. Not that I really have that much to teach to established musicians, but I’d like to work with those who are a bit younger and less fixed in their ways.

I want to teach them about music theory – that boring exam everyone who wants to go from good to great must pass at one point or another.

The Albatross in the Driveway

April 30, 2014

I’m haunted. I’m haunted by the cars I have lost.

Well, nearly. I’m no longer in a position to maintain my car. It’s a lovely beast, but no longer fit for purpose. Read the rest of this entry »
