Hard Copy

Another practice, another new song. This one's called 'Hard copy'. Once we tidy it up it'll be a shuffling heavy groove all about the demise of the vinyl LP. Aaahh it'll bring a tear to your eye.

Just a quick word about the Official Magic Ship Facebook Group. If you aren't in it. You should be! Join here:

I'd like to think this is not just a plug for a great PA/sound company but a genuine thanks to the team who helped make our day at the Brentford Festival a fantastic one. Baz and the team from Independent are wizards of sound. The turnaround speed, the quality of FOH sound and sound through the monitors was first class.

Last night's practice was exciting. We pretty much had a new song all but done. The others don't know yet, but I think it's just called 'Amazing'. It's pretty funky in a rocky kinda way. You'll like it.

Ad's Trace Elliot is still at the doctors so he was playing through the PA. That's no fun in a rehearsal room, but he still managed to make it sound decent.

What a great day! It was a grand day out. German sausage. London Pride. Curried goat. Paella. See-saws. Roundabouts. Bouncy Castles. Magic Ship. Thanks for showing your support. We had a tremendous reception and some hearty applause for the three-piece power trio line up. The road crew were watching from backstage and gave us some great comments, that means alot.
