A few words

Posted on: March 25th, 2010 by Craig Sparkes 1 Comment

I never did make it to Africa. As soon as the first record on ECC, Synaesthesia, was released, our second album came forward and was ready to go, putting the brakes on my planned journey south. I suspect my friends and family are all boasting magnificent tans by now and my I will be a source of ridicule for the rest of the year.

Empire & Love by The Imagined Village was released on January 11th to exceptional reviews and has been a critical and commercial wonder. I was fortunate enough to catch the band on tour in Salisbury and was surprised to hear one of my friends crop up in a duet with Jackie Oates on stage, who’s voice was a nice addition to the song of his, Lark In The Morning. This duet was preceded by a reading from Anthony McGeehan, who regaled the audience with his opinions on journalists and their practice. As I was unable to catch a glimpse of the reserved author, I concluded that he must have been hiding in the relative safety of the wings when he was delivering his speech.

The gig was a hoot, and I tried my best two stick two feathers up to Nick Griffin.

At the moment, I am back in the studio, wondering what the sun would feel like on my back in Africa, and overseeing the finishing touches that are being put to the third ECC release – another composition for the Lush Spas, this time for their facial treatment. My beak has never felt so good after all the facial massages I’ve been having.

I have to fly now as I’m about to drop in on a meeting with a potential new signing to ECC, more on this to come……
