Our new drummer. He's waiting to soundcheck at his inaugral Salter Cane gig, supporting Spear Of Destiny at The Ocean Rooms, Brighton.

We played support to a Danish band called Chimes and Bells in the Freebutt. It was the first time we'd played there since the Freebutt was refurbished, and it was a good experience. It was especially nice not to have to drag my own bass amp to the gig; instead, I got to play through the headliner's lovely Ampeg.

Me, waiting to say "one two, one two".

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.

For me, the most stressful part of being in the studio is when I have to sing backing vocals (frankly, the most stressful part of being in a band is when I have to sing backing vocals). Luckily, I didn't have too much to do vocally this time around--and with enough reverb, even my voice sounds okay.

Salter Cane were rockin last night, or perhaps alt-countryin? Great gig guys. The support band, Funes (not pronounced how it looks), were rather good too. Though I think most would agree the gig would have been better somewhere a bit bigger and a lot colder. Sorry adactio, you were moving about too much in the shadows for my poor phone camera to cope. I've had to blast this with various filters to take the edge off the noise as it is. It will be interesting to see how scribex's holga photos come out.

My bass, my feet, my overdrive pedal, my bass case, an amp which is not mine, a microphone stand which is not mine, and a radiator which does very little to eliminate the damp chill in our practice room.

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.

Empty venue is empty. Thank goodness it filled up by the time we were on stage.

In the Metway Studio.

Quite a turnout for a Tuesday night.

Strumming like a madman.
