We are pulling together the artwork for the 2011 shows. We need posters, print flyers and web flyers. Ad has some good ideas and we've pretty much decided on a cool pop art them for the St Paul's show and an old school black and white photo for the Half Moon stuff.
Our usual rehearsal space is not available this week so were switching for a one off to a different venue to keep our hand in and keep the new material coming.
I've switched back to using the Alden Bluesline http://muse-inc.com/eng/bbs/board.php?bo_table=e21 and it's a great guitar. Really thick sound. Just gotta get used to not bashing the pick up switch. Always seems to get in the way when you are used to playing a Tele vs this Les Paul shape.
Dave has invested in some new hard drum cases. Surely that makes them even heavier?? Booo.
Ad is still waiting on his new bass... http://www.probass.co.uk/Home.html

With some breathing space between gigs we decided to work on some new songs last night. Ad had some lyrics for 'The Start' and 'Anne Marie'. The Start is coming along well. It's a song of many parts from chanting to freak out guitar solos. It will be epic. We worked hard on harmonies, they really add a new dimension to the sound. Ad is the new Aled Jones.
Anne Marie didn't end up where it started (as a heavy waltz). By the time we'd finished it wasn't Anne-Marie any more it was an entirely new song with no lyrics (yet) a TV Spy themed intro and other bits that sound heavier than anything we've done before. It's all new. It's all good. It's all Jetsonics. You'd expect nothing less.

Had good fun on Friday night. Thanks to The Members for having us. Thanks to all the Jetsonics supporters who came to see us and all The Members fans who came early and watched us too.
Technical hiccup with a squealing microphone aside it was a good show. We played Caterham Blues which went down well. We dropped Satisifed to keep the set to around 45 minutes. There is a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb0BQDyOhJE

A cracking show at the Half Moon. Thanks for showing up those that did. We had a good time didn't we! Thanks also to 100 Ways - the support band. Great sound. Thanks to Anthony the sound man, we've not worked with him before but he was super quick with the osund check and very professional.
We're playing next at The Inn on the Green, Notting Hill. October 15th. Come and see us then.
