There were two major threads to my life this year – Epidural and Subdural
I’m not too sure when the leg thing started but it must have been just after we finished the mastering of the album – there was so much walking involved in that that I couldn’t have physically have done it
I remember having trouble with the load in at San Fran for the record release gig
We didn’t play a lot of gigs this year – the whole focus of the Spines was in recording and mixing the Epidural album. You could say we changed tack.
But I did a power of writing this year. These here stories each week and also the lyrics to about ten percent of the album.
It was a feat to make the album this year and to put it out ourselves but we had a really strong critical response. It was reviewed in some depth by Simon Sweetman and Nick Bollinger on RNZ and I wound up doing an interview about Wellington music with Jesse Mulligan.
I would limp down to the post shop and send Epidural to all parts of the globe and was trying to book a South Island tour when I got halted in my tracks – couldn’t even look at a screen
It was on the night of the elections that the real pain arrived in the form of iron bars across the midriff – the pancreas playing up
I went on for a while deluding myself till it got so bad that I just had to surrender to the hospital for the first time ever. They took me right in but I managed to nip back across the road and salvage this computer and continue to write and keep in touch.
The mind is an amazing creature and all we have in a way.
It encompasses heart and body
Soul – I don’t know but we all have it.
But I did get out of there alive
After a weak
So I did get healthy
I’ve been thinking about the next album ever since
Ironing out the songs
I’m unsure where the year has taken me but we did manage to play a gig down south and I got on Matinee Idle for the first time after listening to it all those years.
Hannah and I did an hilarious podcast about the album and we continue to grow closer musically.
And it’s not all over yet – I’m about to turn Sixty so stay tuned
I have an idea about changing up these Ghost stories once we get to the two hundred mark
Maybe scurrying back to the Herman Manslaughter persona
