Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, those of you too tight to buy tickets, those too distant to travel, those too drunk to care and everybody else can now see The Lunacy Board’s performance last week from the comfort of home.
It was a night of mixed emotions, stress, compromises and arguments, but above all a night of music in various guises… It’s been a while since I last drove around Glasgow and numerous new one way streets (as well as unexpected roadworks en route) meant that I didn’t arrive as early at the Classic Grand […]
The Lunacy Board’s first proper live gig is set for the 25th of October. We’ll be playing at the Classic Grand in Glasgow. Headliners are US progressive band Glass and also playing will be local acts Oswald and The Twisted Melons. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £6. I’m really looking forward to this […]
It’s been a long time since I’ve been on stage, and never as a ‘solo’ act, so it was with some trepidation that I set off on the road to Bushey (near Watford) for the ‘Hands Off 2007’ Theremin Symposium. Various people have posted reports of the main event, which was a great success, but […]
This gig forms the grande finale of the theremin shindig I mentioned a while ago. I’ll be part of the ‘UK League of Thereminists’ playing a few structured improvised pieces as part of a ‘theremin orchestra’. There are a number of very good thereminists going to be attending, so well worth the money if you […]
We had a bit of a crisis at our latest gig… The mixing desk made a rather loud bang and stopped working just before the start of the 2nd set. Everything was lit up, but not a whimper of sound came through. All was not lost and our back-up plan for just such an event […]
I don’t usually like to plug things around here, but this is an event that I’m really looking forward to – a whole weekend of theremin fun and goodness. There’s a great line up of concerts and events planned with big names from the theremin world. Click on the picture for more details.
I’ve been giving some more thought to the whole idea of a public performance on theremin, should I ever be in the position to do so. As I mentioned previously, I don’t think a guest spot with the band will work (unless they go somewhere with a big enough stage), which leaves me with 3 […]
I’ve had a fairly hectic few weeks between various gigs, changing jobs and increasing family taxi services. Another two live sound gigs – one very cool show in a barn as part of a party/barbequeue/dance/shindig event, and another more local gig which was almost a sell-out. We’ve also almost sold out a gig in December, […]
It seems like a couple of days ago that I last posted here, but looking at the date it turns out to be almost a month. So what on earth have I been doing? To start with, the local band I’m doing sound engineer duties for had their first gig in the local pub – […]
