First bit

The band (in its current incarnation) is no more, as Julian and I agreed together on Monday.

There's been no huge negative blow-up nor any agro... nothing like that at all. It's simply a case of not everyone being available at the same place at the same time. Makes for organising and planning any future direction as a band somewhat impossible. So we've pulled the pin.

I simply cannot put into succinct words my feelings of sad disappointment. It's a bitter personal blow, as I feel I'm playing as well as I have in a long time. I'll just leave it at that.

Julian and I will continue to play together, but we will once again seek other people to come alongside and play with us. For the fourth (?) time, we start again from scratch. It's sure taking all the 'fun' out of it, huh?

That's the first big bit of news. The second I cannot reveal on here as of yet... but let me just infer that it's health related, and it is life-threatening, if what they say is (as-of-yet-to-be) confirmed.

I simply won't continue on this journey alone, if they say it is what it is.
Peas be with ewe

  1. Hugs to you on both the band situation, and on the other health situation.

    I know how frustrating it is when something that is working can't continue, but maybe something good will fall into place.

    I hope the health thing turns out to be not as bad as it seems to be.

  2. Firstly I am sorry to hear about the band but I think you knew the writing was on the wall. Continue to enjoy your music with Julian.

    Regarding the other remember you are not alone, you have tons of friends online here for you.


  3. you are not alone. you are loved by many people, including your boys.

    it will all be good.


  4. No you most certainly are not alone, you have many people who care about you. So we haven't met, we are still in each others' lives.

    I don't often pray, but I'm saying one for you my friend.

  5. Far out Mal, things have got to work out mate.

  6. hang in there. you have music in your soul whether there are members in your band or not and that's is fantastic! Keep jammin' with your mate and all the best for that otehr news.

  7. oops. Sorry about the spelling errors. I was thinking faster than my fingers could manage.

  8. i can't talk about it at the moment. it's still way too close for me.

  9. sorry about the band Mal, I hope that something works out for you as far as health issues..i am hoping for the best. And I will be saying many prayers!

    You and Julian will still do great! Sorry things did not work out how you planned.

  11. Sounds like you have a lot going on... hope everything resolves itself well soon!

  12. Sending positive thoughts your way for the band and the health situation. xxx

  13. Thanks. It's not easy trying to deal with my shit on my own. That's an understatement.
    No, I'm not a happy chipper chirpy camper at the moment.

  14. Oh dear, Mal! The world seems a shit for you at the moment- except for your lovely boys.
    Just keep up as much music as you can- perhaps you can do some online collaborations with people like Chris Loft, here in Adelaide? (see Facebook).
    The health issue...can't comment until I know what you're talking about.
    We all love you on here and some of us would love to visit/be visited IRL. Have a chat with KDFrawg on Plurk- he's been through some majorly nasty health issues and seems to have some good strategies- and he's still around!
    Hugs xx ((hugs))
