Last night, my new band Overhead, The Albatross played our first gig at Facing's E.P. launch in The Twisted Pepper. The last time I was on stage was Despised Icon on the 29th of June, a whole lifetime away as far as I'm concerned.
We've only been a band since late November/early December and so far it's been an absolute pleasure.
Anyway, I just wanted to say how much I missed playing on stage. I really didn't know how it would work playing relatively light songs, I didn't really expect to be leaping about the place but like I've said before, I just can't help it, nor do I want to.
Easily, without question, the happiest moments of my life are spent on stage and it was invigorating to get back up there last night. It mightn't seem like a big deal to people but the actual playing of music does a lot to me. I get really, really into it. I suppose it's the most real way I have of expressing anything. I know there are people who feel the same.
I've been having so much fun writing and playing with the lads out in Clique. This is the most input I've ever had in writing any music and it's making me happier every time we practice. Dig it.
I'm missing loads of people lately, purely because what I said would happen eventually did happen and it was inevitable. I, because of the ways things went, lose out on hang outs with a shit load of good friends. Times change and all that.
All in all, I'm mega happy these days. Things aren't necessarily going my way but I'm enjoying the ride, except I might be getting ridden with the Haiti trip. Watch this space.
