Contrast


The dreamy start to the year here's descended into the standard onslaught of  hectic Atlantic wind, hail, rain and tax returns. What fun would life be without a little contrast though, love it!

Strays




Just got back to Ireland after a really productive week rehearsing with Strays. The bands really coming together now, the vibes all there, the songs are flowing, and it feels like somethings in the air. With our first big gig looming in Manchesters Deaf Institute in February, it could have been a heavy testing week trying to get our shit together, but instead it was creative, intense, and felt rad. Here's a couple of shots from the few minutes I had without a guitar round my neck anyways, thats our manager Matt in the middle - as you can see he's a man on a mission!

Back to the Studio



Heading to Manchester today for a week of rehearsals with Strays. So before I'm locked in a dark room for seven days and nights, thought I'd throw up a little recent outdoor love to keep the imagination in check. Heres Paul Morgs and Thom Robinson tearing it up in frosty Ireland. Right on...

Happy New Year


Yes yes the new year is here, lets make it one to remember! It's been a mad start for us here in Ireland anyways, fookin hell best 10 days of the winter over xmas and new years. The bodyboarders have paddled some bombs, Ferg and Lowey have towed some hectic slabs, and unfortunately one of the local lads even broke his back believe it or not. Heavy shizzle. Yep Peter Conroy copped it but is thankfully going to be fine after alot of resting, which'll no doubt do his nut in as he's a certifiable frenzied ball of energy at the best of times. Heres a taste of what we've been getting stuck into anyways, right on...
