New Mocha Nights stuff online

Yeah, that band who I’ve been working with on and off since November – the album’s finally in the can and you can hear some tracks at www.myspace.com/themochanights.

Right now there’s Midnight Sleepers (upbeat guitar pop with a cheesy keychange at the end), Chasing Angels (very Queen-ish, big lush ballady thing), Theif of Hearts (no, not a cover of the unreleased Bon Jovi song of the same name, kinda like a cross between ‘Same old Song & Dance’ by Aerosmith and Andrew Lloyd Webber) and The Dinner Party (Like Muse meets The Beatles, all on crack. Or something).

Anyway, enjoy. James Mackenzie (of www.rupturedrecordings.com) did a great job on the mix & master.

One for the UKMGers – bargain alert!

I was walking up Titchfield St. in Kilmarnock this morning and I went past Cash Converters and I saw an Ibanez Jem 7VWH in the window. For £600.

Fuck. Me. Running.

It definitely wasn’t the cheapie one, it had the vine inlay running all the way down the neck. Wow, if I was any braver than I am I would’ve whipped out the credit card and bought it, even if only to sell on eBay to make a disgusting profit off.

If any of my fellow UKMGers, particularly the scottish ones, fancy jumping on this deal, go for it. 🙂
