So...... What has been happening!!!!!
Well, in short, the darkness hit me again. Not the full darkness, more like a really overcast day darkness. It still brought with it its usual annoyances.... Fear, anxiety, procrastination. Going from a really active start to the year putting the website together and recording, everything has slowed down or stopped. Life went from running freely to feeling like I was like trying to walk in mud. Some things got done slowly and some things just could not win the battle in my head to get started. Even though the pace has slowed, things have still been happening in the background. I am feeling the darkness lift and am now using my more positive mental outlook to start things moving again.
So, with that said...... what has been happening?

Now, I love metal. In fact, I’d go as far as grabbing a set of pom poms and chanting ‘Metal Metal Metal! Raar Raar Raar!’ like a more moral George Bush Jr. At the risk of sounding like Grandpa Shone, the music I consistently always go back to is the rock of the 60’s leading into the hard rock/proto metal of the early 70’s. It’s a fat trip man!

So back in 2008 I was the Lighting Designer for an English Indie Band called Kaiser Chiefs. They were asked to cuarate an edition of The Guardian Online. The boys asked me to write a 'Little' paragraph on my love of metal to include on the website. The little paragraph turned into much much more as I started to work through the question. It really was an enjoyable experience to sit down and re-live my journey, and that's why we've decided to re visit it for our blog. Sit back and enjoy!

Welcome to the third Big Rock Room blog!
Hopefully you've all had chance to see our latest upload, a cover of Pink Floyd's 'Time' (see video page if not!) and the theme of the song couldn't be more apt as regards the issues we, and doubtless many others, face in getting our musical projects out there.

Well, essentially everything that has happened with the studio has been very organic and each accidental step has had a knock on effect to create the next thought process. Virtually every step has been met with the answer 'Why Not!’.
