half life

I've recently taken up a weekly slot at True North Studios to start preparing some material for possible future live performances.

The first few sessions were taken up trying to re-learn songs that I hadn't played since 1982. I started off with Again The New Formation and after preparing a quick backing track (with a fair few mistakes in it) I videod my frst full run through, and it can be seen here.

I also had a go at a new song called Half Life, which I haven't yet recorded a studio version of, and put that on the myspace page also.

Last week I decided to take my Korg MS200BR along instead of my Korg MS-10, as I hadn't got around to trying out the vocoder part of it yet. I had another go at playing Half Life in order to try it out, and the result can be seen hear.

Last night I spent the evening working on a live version of Dead To The World, which came out better than expected, but I didn't have my video camera with me so that will have to wait for another time.
