Another Friday, another band practice. We ran through the set we'll play at our gig on February 17th, and then we messed around with some cover versions, old and new. You haven't heard "Are Friends Electric" until you've heard it played by Salter Cane.

Paul Beat, bass player from Mudlow, works his magic on the tracks that Salter Cane have just laid down.

Salter Cane spent two days at the Metway Studio recording an album's worth of cover songs. It was quite fun, though I was having to juggle work at the same time, which meant that when I wasn't playing the bass, I was frantically checking my email.

Salter Cane was invited to play with The Blue Hearts from Brighton and Rita Lynch at the famous 100 Club in London. It was an album launch party for all of us; in our case, we were debuting our new album Sorrow. There was a good turnout and it was a fun night, which made the long trek up to London and back worth it.

Yes, indeed.

Nick Cave-ish mellowdrama with a instantly familiar, yet haunting voice.

Great stuff. Give it a listen. It's now available on iTunes.
