CollyLogic: What really matters…

Life, Web Stuff Comments Off on CollyLogic: What really matters…

I don’t usually ping stuff on other blogs, but this rather personal post by web developer Simon Collison left me with a rather warm, fuzzy feeling! I’m sure most of us who spend a lot most of our time on computers can relate to Simon’s feelings, and can appreciate that sometimes we need to remember the big wide world that exists outside our computers, mobile phones, and jobs.

Return of the Redi

Left Hand Red, Recording Comments Off on Return of the Redi

It’s four months since Left Hand Red‘s last gig with Dead! Dead! Dead! at the Freebutt in Brighton. During those four months we’ve been hard at work recording our new demos, have written another (excellent) new song, and worked at making our existing songs even better.

On Sunday 6th August we come back with a bang! We’re headlining a ‘Sunday Spectacular’ Cable Club show, with three other bands also on the bill. After having to cancel a previous date (scheduled for today, as it happens), we’ve been extremely lucky to get another headline date just three and a half weeks later.

Not only that, but we have three of the four demos very near, if not at, completion. Hopefully we’ll have plenty more gigs lined up very soon.


Looks like we’re being resceduled! Probably Tuesday 8th or Wednesday 9th August.

Brighton & Hove has been chosen as the testbed for a new form of transport for Europe — environmentally-friendly motorised rickshaws, or TucTucs as they’re known in Asia! There are 12 rickshaws in operation across the city, all painted with tongue-in-cheek designs. No doubt it’ll become a local sport to spot them all!

Don’t be like clockwork

The grit trucks are out in Hades — we may well have finished recording two of our new demos!

Singer Dan and I spent the bulk of yesterday evening producing the seventh mixes of Clockwork and Out of Focus (excluding the abortive attemps back in January), and we may well have nailed it this time. I’m going to attempt to add a bit of polish to the stereo mixes (I wouldn’t go as far to call it ‘mastering’), and they should appear on a band website and MySpace profile near you soon!

Still in the mixing stage are Against the Grain and Midnight Sun. The intention was to bring all four demos out together, but as Midnight Sun is proving a little difficult, we’re going to reveal them when they’re ready. That, and we’re getting impatient.

Dan has produced a scrapbook-inspired cover for the demo/EP, which is quite appropriate for the no-nonsense, do-it-yourself approach we have to our music. It’s going to provide the inspiration for a redesign of the Left Hand Red website, which has served its purpose, but is now getting a little stale. One project ends, another one begins…

Update—6th July ’06

Something just ain’t quite right with Clockwork. *sigh* Will this never end…?
