Okay, so I’d like to start by thanking every single Clan Attica member and beyond for your support and acceptance. As I’ve mentioned before, it is an absolute honour to be a part of one of my favourite bands and even better that it’s with some very good mates. Thank you to all the bands and fans who showed their support in Liverpool and Mansfield, you made it a very memorable time for me and I’m chomping at the bit to knock them back with you all again.
As I’m sure you all know now, I come from 2 main bands, STITCH and HELLATUS. Those were some crazy times but I really feel these bands made me the musician I am today, so I’d like to take a moment to thank my other brothers Ian, Wullie, Dan, Stevie, Sami and John.
This year promises to be the biggest in Attica history and I’m sure there are more crazy times ahead. At the moment we are working our socks off to get all the parts of your favourite songs tight as a gnats chuff lol. It’s gotta be said that you don’t realise how hard it is to sing some of Jonny’s backing vocals from Road Dog but I can tell you it’s amazing when you nail them. I’d love to fill you all in on some future gig dates and plans but I’ve been threatened with death if I do, so we shall remain mutually patient.
The new album is well on it’s way with regards to the song writing and I can tell you all now, you won’t be disappointed. Joining this band as a fan first and foremost gives me the fresh excitement needed. I swear I’m like a kid in a sweet shop every time I hear something new and the guys have been very welcoming with some of the material I have in mind for the album.
When I first got word of the job, I must admit the prospect of practising with the guys was a little daunting. Not because the music was difficult but purely as I thought these guys are party animals, I can’t possibly keep up. Ooooh how wrong I was, they’re actually quite a laid back bunch behind the scenes, which is imperative to saving up the energy for you guys n gals. Even if the cardigans and slippers were a bit much for me.
We have a new blog! One of the many things said to me throughout this process that has got me scratching my prematurely balding hairline. I must admit though it’s very pretty lol. I’m still getting my head around how all this works but the guys thought it’d be a nice touch for me to present our first informal post on our new blog. We hope this new blog serves you all well, now that it has replaced the old one on the MySpace graveyard.
And last but by absolutely no means least, I’d like to send my best wishes out to our departed brother Big C. Not a lot of people know this but the big man has been a constant inspiration to me over the years and I’m very proud to call him one of my nearest and dearest. He has been so supportive of this move from start to finish and I thank you man.
Feel free to add me on facebook and get the chat. I don’t bite (well not hard anyway).
