What I did last summer

Hello everyone! I know I haven't been posting much recently but it's been an enjoyable summer and the band is starting to get back on track again so I hope I am excused my holiday.

Here are some video clips of us from last weekend at our own CleckFest bash when we opened the night for The Voos and The Syndicates. Hats off to Steve, our front man, for putting together yet another great weekend of local music. Without him these events would be hard to get off the ground. I'm sure that more video from the three nights will appear on YouTube etc, but I'm buggered if I'm editing it. It took me 2 days to pick these bits out of our set, anyone know how to adjust aspect ratios?

And for Jackie and Karen; I hope this gives you an idea what I am up to, you didn't miss too much :)

We are ABandinurHead, we just do covers right now, and we opened like this...

The Alex Harvey Band - Framed
(And if you are wondering, Steve came on with a stocking over his head)

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

George Thorogood - If You Don't Start Drinking

The Animals - House of the Rising Sun

Bad Company - Can't Get Enough Of Your Love

And we finished like this...
Rolling Stones - Jumpin' Jack Flash

I loved Bad Company - thought they were brilliant.

(Pity you couldn't filter out the sound of the punters yacking during your set - kinda detracted a bit from your music.)

Anyways, good to 'see' you back blogging again !

Thanks Duncan, posts will pick up again over the next couple of weeks. I miss hearing from everyone.
Background noise is a problem, we only had a tiny cheapo camera with a built-in microphone. Someone was trying to record it separately from the sound desk but he blew up his laptop. Oops!

I'm hoping we can have another go tonight with two cameras and a standalone digital recorder, so we'll see what goes bang this time. It's a big learning curve but it may work out in the end.
