Parisian Skeletons

So following the release of our charity single, things have been ticking along nicely behind our dormant looking exterior. Contrary to the recommended protocol of ‘finsh album, tour album, promote band, sell, sell, sell’ geographical restrictions have resulted in a short hiatus of sorts…….(see below)

hiatus |hīˈātəs|, noun ( pl. -tuses ) [usu. in sing. ] a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process : there was a brief hiatus in the war with France.

Brighton has become the new place of residence for some of the band and appears at this moment, to be full of creative treasures, awaiting discovery by intrepid map carrying Yorkshire men. With links still remaining strong in the East of Yorkshire, doors are open… in a fashion…. as it were…. so to speak………. ambiguous ? (see below)

ambiguous |amˈbigyoōəs|adjective (of language) open to more than one interpretation; having a double meaning : the question is rather ambiguous

So enough flannel. Among some remix work, some swimming in the sea of an Indian summer and new recordings, there was a trip to gay Paris, which besides including a wonderfully macabre trip to see the 6 million skeletons beautifully arranged in the underground Catacombes beneath bustling streets, also resulted in seeing a seminal band perform an incredible show.

Having the pleasure of attending my first New Order gig in Paris was a memorable experience indeed and one I am indebted to Jayne H for :)  …Charismatic city, electric atmosphere, and meeting the band afterwards was certainly something to tell the grand-kids. Shared a taxi with Ed from the Chemical brothers, met the Pet Shop Boys and scored a free suitcase on the way back to the hotel…. bonus.

In the synchronized words of myself and my gig buddy Ian (when the lights came up at the end of the show)…. Fuckin Great!
