New Year, New Website, New Album On The Way - January 8, 2010

Happy new decade to you all....we celebrate with a new website, and have all the components in place to produce a new album (including budget) by the autumn :) New working title "Windows And Walls".....and no it's not a song about Microsoft's new operating system! Though I sense there maybe commercial potential in such a misconception...:) Anyway, do watch this space and keep the afternoon of Sun 7 March free for a very speshul live music event in central London....details to follow shortly.

In My Shoes: Live @ The Ramshackle - June 22, 2009

Second Album Demos! - June 2, 2009

For those of you in Blightly - gosh isn't England simply marvelous when the weather's like this!! You underestimate the power of that temperate sun at your peril .

I write to fill you in on substantial progress towards the production The Mispent's second album (working title "Somewhat Smitten"); all the songs are in place, studio at the ready, even some drums recorded (!): we just need a bit of dosh for the purposes of facilitation !! Well where there's a will there's a way - although any "fan" contributions to the cause are of course welcome.

Sneak previews of a selection of the new material exist in acoustic demo form on the "music" page - CHECK IT OUT and click on "Demos 2009". Stand out tracks are probably "Listen To Lilith" and "In My Shoes" - a full band "live" version of the latter will be up on You Tube by next week.

Lastly, bear Friday 24 July in mind as we have a gig at the Water Rats, King's Cross (on at 8pm) supporting a mystery, signed, quasi famous band - definitely our best date so far - please come along to that one if you possibly can. Details to follow closer to the time.

Stepping Stone Deal With SiBee Records! - April 14, 2008

We're very pleased to have signed a short rolling deal with SiBee Records - coming soon at http://www.sibeerecords.com ! The idea is to get "Climbing Frames" and other fine independent music airplay in public spaces - hotels, restaurants etc on the basis of an exclusive relationship with SiBee. This cuts out heavy generic royalty fees for Fat Cat publishers; which is better for less known musicians and clients alike.....we hope this is the beginning of a full contract !
