Getting back on track

We’ve been on something of a hiatus here, but that’s been partly in keeping with the spirit of the last post: we’ve been spending a lot more time with cultivating interests and activities that don’t have a lot to do with what’s going on in the world.

But for a variety of reasons, both personal and professional, I hope to get back into the swing of the blogging thing.

If you want to see one of the things I’ve been working on, you could check out my new band, The Calm Rads, and the music we’ve been making.

I guess I should actually say new/old band, since we used to play in a different band way back in the misty ages past (i.e. at university in the late 80s/early 90s).

The new part also involves our working over the transatlantic distance, as I live in Germany and the other two in the American Midwest. Which has been interesting. And Challenging. (This is something that I might be writing more about.)

Our main SoundCloud is here. There are also some YouTube videos of selected songs.

Because the songwriting has been far more prolific than our production capacities, me and the other main songsmith in the group have also started our own side-clouds for ideas, demos and works-in-progress. You can find mine here and the other one here.

Well, that’s enough for now, I think. It’s nice to be back.
