I guess it’s one way of looking at the moment the band is in. We just finished 15 days straight of rehearsals. All in preparation for one gig in Kalgoorlie. Seems rather fickle but the practice has set us up sonically for the cycle of shows we’ve got planned over the next six months. This is especially significant for Glenn and Sparky who have a whole new approach to the live show. Unlike me, haha, still mashing down on the root notes and watching Westy’s foot with intensity. I think I may have been given a microphone… I’m not sure. That’ll probably last one gig! We’re feeling really good about the new stuff in the set. It doesn’t seem as foreign as the album promises to be.
Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been receiving finalised photo’s and artwork from wonderful artists and photographers from various places. It looks so stunning to me and I’m so humbled by the great people willing to work with us. This week we are waiting for the first video edit of the first single, and it’s pretty exciting. I know it’s going to have some provocative qualities to it… Awesome. It’s good to see the band avoiding the performance video thing… Although I’ve never been adverse to them. It’s just nice to try something else. Who knows? The next video will probably be the band playing in a room, with some unrelated narrative that doesn’t really go anywhere. HAHA.
Oh well, we get a week off, and then we head to Perth, fly to Kal, fly back to Perth, then home to Sydney (well for Glenn, Spark and I).
Check out this video, great reverse shot narrative. Gets ya thinkin!!! Reminds me of Memento or Irreversible.
