For this blog, we decided to pool memories of our Stanley/Livingstone esque meeting and subsequent alliance. We thought it'd be interesting to get each other's take on how we came together musically. Amazingly, our recollections are surprisely similar. Enjoy!

To upgrade or not to upgrade! That was the question. We always knew the time would come. The world we live in revolves around constant updates and upgrades to every piece of technology we own. So it was inevitable that we would have to upgrade the studio at some point.

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?

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!
