Last Month Giant Stone Eater played in the beautiful Sommercasino in Basel at the record launch of our pals Scratches. A pleasure! The gig went well : good turnout and a cool atmosphere. We played pretty well considering we had hardly any opportunity to practice recently as I’ve been based in Moscow this past year.
Over the last two years I was doodling a bit in my cellar in Basel.
Trying to really not care if the music was cliched and a bit cheese-laden, but essentially keeping it heart felt. I have been living in another state of flux. Slightly nomadic. Feeling untethered, for a part of it at least. Perhaps a little lost even.
Then towards the end of last year, I moved to Moscow with 9 unmixed tracks on my disk.
Slowly, very slowly and mainly over headphones I mixed them up. In a small corner of my bedroom.
As always it’s a snapshot of a period in my life.
For a limited time you can grab the free download.
Click on the album below and the free download link is on the album’s page. It’s a zip file with all the tracks.
Enjoy, and as always send me your thoughts.
It’s been a while. And, of course, there have been some changes. So here is the news:
Not The Sensational Alex Harvey Band is no more. Tragically, Hanspeter founder member and guitarist died last year. There is no way we can see to continue and have called it a day.
I have an album’s worth of recorded material. I am finding a way to mix, master and release it. But I am living abroad with sporadic trips back to CH just now so it’s tricky: but watch this space!
Giant Stone Eater will play Renee in Basel on 23rd March 2019. Don’t miss it!
It took a bit longer than expected, but the new collection of songs is out. You can grab it from http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/gordonbell6.
A free track will appear on the page here: https://gordypops.wordpress.com/gordon-bell-the-golden-age-of-nothing-much/
Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m stepping back from a lot of digital activities just now. That means Way Past Bedtime is on ice. So, stay subscribed and you never know…
Mea Cupla, mea cupla…
There has been no Way Past Bedtime for a while. Please forgive me. I moved flat and the dust is just settling. I do aim to get a podcast out this month.
Meanwhile the Nots are making their 8th trip to Scotland plus a gig in Wales.
