I'm watching Jimtom Say? And The Sayers Sooth at The Northampton Beer festival at Delapre Abbey. I'm on stage at 240pm.
Photo taken in the early morning after the day long recording session that produced my new LP. A huge and incredible day. This was after 42 hours solid playing I just couldn't be without a guitar.. This beauty belongs to Ross Alexander II.

Last night at The Convent for a few weeks. I love this place, thankyou to Matt and Charlotte Roberts for looking after the band and I over the last ten days.
Today I recorded the last two songs for the new LP (with Dave Wah engineering) at The Convent.
Tonight I've been planning a couple of tweaks to the running order.
Tomorrow we're adding some bits and bobs on a couple of songs and working on some incidental pieces.
There's still lots of work to be done, but I can sense that the release date is getting closer, possibly sooner than originally planned.
Thanks again to Matt and Charlotte and The Convent team for the endless love and care.
I'm heading back to The Convent this afternoon. I'm there to finish some field recordings, another new song or two and also happy to hear I'll be able to catch the Don Gallardo show tonight. I'm looking forward to catching up with Eliza Carthy, my Convent family and meeting some of my Facebook fans/(and now) friends for the first time in the flesh.
I'll be taking this skull shaker courtesy of Lew Bear 🐻 and some new strings for my Epiphone Emperor. (I may be taking my rain stick too)
I'll also be putting together some video diaries to be released later and having my photo taken by @le_fay_photo
Another beautiful week of music making prevails.
Devil makes work for idle hands.
Mr Biffins is glad I'm home.
For 42 hours this beautiful chapel has been my confessional.
I've had an incredibly productive recording session at The Convent. The new LP has suddenly sprung into reality and is sounding so good.
A huge thanks to Matthew and Charlotte Roberts for making the whole thing possible and come together. Matt is a very good Producer with some amazing talents and credits that have allowed my guys and I to bring the groove and depths to the table (stage). Recording in such a spiritual space makes it easier to record Live takes. But that shouldn't undermine my admiration and deepest gratitude for the hard work of my usual family ( Fran, J and Al) and my Abrahams brethren. (Rascal Ross, Jamie and Max Bpm)
We make a deadly live act now guys after 42 hours of playing in the last 60 hours spent together.
Thanks also to Mr Van Damme for the reportage.
I'm back here next week to capture some more pieces of soul and I'm looking forward to it already.
