Sorry it has been a long time since I have kept you up to date with what is happening, 2011 was a busy year for both myself and Rich. Firstly, a big thank you to all of you who brought a copy of Postcards, the album sold really well which was fantastic. I would also like to thank Rich for all the hard work he put into the album and Joe for his great review on Clixie.
At the end of 2011 I started to write new songs and also experiment with new sounds. I'm really excited about how the songs are turning out and sounding. Rich and I have now begun recording the next album 'Psychedelic Colours', which we hope to have out in 2012. We should be posting one or two new songs, as a preview of the forthcoming album, over the next couple of months so please keep checking back for updates!
Take it easy,
Sorry it has been a while since I have written anything to let you know what is going on. The good news is Rich and I have been very busy working on the new album, which is called 'Postcards'. The album is going to have 14 new tracks on it and I am very excited about all of these songs. We have recorded the album in London and Birmingham and this will be our third album following the success of The Dice of Life and A Different Story. I have really enjoyed writing and recording these new songs and it has been a wonderful experience. We also hope to have a new video out soon to accompany the song called 'Don’t Close The Book', which was written in support of a Mexican animal charity called Gepda. I would like to thank you all for your continued support and interest in the music that we create.
Keep checking back as there will be updates and we hope to be posting one or two new tracks from the album on our myspace page soon (www.myspace.com/alistaircjones).
Hello to you all, It’s been a while since I have written anything about what we have been up to and lots of people have been asking. Rich and I wanted to finish promoting the album A Different Story which we have done thanks to all the people who brought a copy. I started work on the next album quite a few months ago writing the songs and I am very pleased with the songs that have come out of this process. I started to make rough demos of the songs and sent then to Rich for him to listen to and start getting ideas of basslines, backing vocals, and a general feel of what the album was going to be like. We are both very excited about it already and are working on lots of ideas on how these songs will be recorded and what will be on them. I think we will begin recording them very soon the process is fantastic I think, you start with a basic guitar part and vocal then you build up the layers i.e. bass, drums, backing vocals and so on. The songs then take on a style of their own it always excites me to hear them when they are finished and to listen to how they started.
The other great news is we now have a drummer who has joined the band called John who is a fantastic drummer. He came to his first practice and played like he had always been there so we are very excited about working on and taking our new live act on the road so look out for gig dates.
Keep in touch and thanks for your support
