Hardy Times

Lots of things are starting to come together in the TPB/Martyr's camp. This weekend we film the first Loft Session with a very special guest. We've been preparing for this for a few months and have finally got our asses in gear. The video should be cut and polished within a couple of weeks.

Work on my solo album is going well. Half of it has now been written, including a new song I finished last night about Tess of the d'Urbervilles. I came up with a melody whilst reading the book and waitied till I finished it before writing the song. If you have read the book then you will know how harrowing the story is. I am a big fan of Hardy's novels and actually wrote 'I Stuck it Out' after reading Jude the Obscure last year. I might keep the theme going. So, any ideas of which Hardy novel I should read next? It has been suggested that I should write a whole Hardy EP, called 'Hardy Times,' or 'A Hardy Rain's Gonna Fall..' I think you guys can do better than that. Answers on a postcard please...

The Martyrs start recording next week and, what seemed like an impossible task creeps into the realms of feasibility. We are hoping to start gigging again at some festivals over the Summer period and then, when our album is complete, organinsing the album launch.

Stay tuned for videos and pics of the Loft Session...
