LM Cooke Music has been a little quiet in public since the release of first solo choon, 'Poor Jenny' (still available for free download on Bandcamp - just name your price as Zero). But that doesn't mean it hasn't been quite noisy behind closed doors. Especially this weekend, where against a backdrop of lashing rain I've been putting together the first edits of another three (that's three!) tunes.
Recording has paused on at least one because it appears I need a horn. Not just any old horn either, a big, pointy Viking style horn. And not just for drinking from - It's actually a blow-y type horn that I need. Similar to this, seen at Glastonbury last month. Maybe a bit smaller. A bit (no, that man doesn't have one very long fang).
And what of the other things in progress this weekend? Well, there is a reworking of a traditional nursery rhyme on the cards, and also a song about a wolf. There *may* be more wolf songs coming up soon. Maybe even a whole wolf cycle. But not a wolf on a cycle. That would be weird.
Excitingly, LM Cooke music has been asked to be part of a forthcoming musical project in the new year, so what with all the new music in progress, 2017 is looking bright, despite today's rain. Don't forget to like the Facebook page to keep in touch with the latest info. And if that's not enough:
- Mediaeval Biaetches are in secret discussions to bring your more biaetch for your buck (or at least, more biaetch). Shhh!
- The late Crimson Clocks have 2 tracks included on Steampunk Records Volume 4, along with a host of other steampunk artists. It's available now from Steampunk Records - it's limited edition so get it before it's gone...
