Autumn has been surprisingly busy, but that's no real excuse. Consider my wrists slapped, and I will do my best to get back into the swing of regular bloggage from now on in. Although Xmas will no doubt soon intervene...
So: A whistle stop catch-up. Since my last entry the following happened:
- I attended the Asylum Steampunk festival in Lincoln, where I was mortified to miss a panel discussion that I was scheduled for – apologies to all (September)
- I caught The Mechanisms at the Asylum – great band!
- The Raising Steam festival, which was intended to raise funds for charity New Futures Nepal, was cancelled due to poor ticket sales. A shame, as it was a great lineup and would have been fantastic! However, stay tuned for exciting spin-off news in the future.. (September).
- I released a youtube video of the launch of The Front Line (October)
- I caught The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing in London (October)
- I went flying birds of prey in Wales (October)
- Reading4u radio station, hosts of Steven C. Davis's CPR show on which I have guested a few times went under in November. I'd like to thank Steven for his support of Crimson Clocks on his show, and wish him all the best in obtaining a new show in the future (and again, watch this space, and don't hold your breath - GASP instead...).
- I saw Hawkwind in Wolverhampton and Crimson Sky in Reading (November)...
So what's next? Well, in a little under two weeks, Crimson Clocks will be making their final appearance of 2013, appearing at the Frosty Belles and Whistles steampunk and Burlesque night at the Roadhouse, Birmingham (full details on the music page). We're on at 3.30pm, so absolutely no excuse not to come along and see us, along with a whole host of other musical entertainment and burlesque titillation.... come along and shake your tinsel.... (see how carefully I managed to resist any jokes about pulling your xmas pudding?)(Oh, ooops...)
(I'm sure you probably can).
That's right, The Home Front, Volume 1 of The Automata Wars will be available electronically, the very first publication from The Last Line publishing house to make it to e-format. Exact details coming very, very soon....
Til then, stay tuned in and turned on, but don't drop out (or off, for that matter).
