sitting here at heathrow airport

on my way home

normal service to be resumed as soon as i get back

lovely days in sweden seeing friends n lou lous

and a short but well needed holiday in portugal have refreshed me

i get back and start rehearsal almost immediately

my bass playing calluses have all worn off

so gotta go thru all that again

bass playing causes horrendous blisters that eventually become calluses

but they have all turned into mush without use

(much like the human brain)

soon we will be back on the road doing the b. crusade and f. deeper

in a aussie capital near you soon

looking forward to seeing my dear kids A and E and S again

they all look like they’ve grown up while away

thanks for all the support and stuff people

i promise a real bloggie when i get back and can smoke summa that stuff

that inspires me to write all the usual stupid things i do

i love you all

sk the airport in lunnon (and nervous ahead of nearly 24 hours of flying!)

thank christ for valium

    I suspect you know all the tricks of the trade, but Tincture of benzoin is good for blisters, should you get them.

    Calluses arent a problem for me. My bass has been sitting
    dormant waiting for some ideas. I recorded a song last week. Did
    the keys, guitar and vocal and it frankly sounded so uninspiring
    that I couldn’t bring myself to attempt to overlay some bass line.
    Twould be an insult to the fender VI. The drummer in my band
    said he liked the concept, melody, lyrics etc but I just want to
    start again but don’t want to can sonething I spent some time on.
    See ya at the factory to see how its really done!

    My bass has been lying dormant for over ten years. One feels too old to play anymore, especiallly since my neighbour ten years ago borrowed my four-track and never gave it back before I moved (I was too shy to knock on his door and ask for it back). I have songs but no means of accessing them unless I buy another (tape) four-track, which would be redundant in this day and age. My fingers never got calloused because I only played enough to record. Same with my drums and my guitar. Now I’ve sold my guitar and drums because I moved into state housing and they wouldn’t fit. So I’m left with nothing but my bass, which I can’t hook up to my amp because being an old state housing unit there’s only a powerpoint at one end of each room. How I wish I could be musically creative again.

    Glad the tour went well and wish I didn’t have agoraphobia so I could leave the house and see the band when you come to WA.
