Further Ongoing Studioness

Hello again

Songs are being written, technologies are being tweaked, noises are annoying my neighbours (heh) and I’m hardly getting enough time to go to work and sleep, let alone read the novels I’ve been promising myself since Christmas.

Pretty psyched though, because that means that things are going well. Actually, raw ideas are pouring out of my hands faster than I can produce and write lyrics for the tracks, which is kind of nice. I’ve made a vow, though, to either force myself to lyric or bash my fingers in until I’m unable to pick up my guitar.

That’ll teach me.

Album, I think, will be mastered and delivered by about March, so expect it in April. It’s sounding raw, savage, nasty and (in my humble) pretty brilliant.

Then again, I’ve been deluded my whole existence.

Keep it fucking heavy


Scarecrow vs. Redbeard – Next Tuesday

That’s right – Redbeard’s radio show on the 4th of January 2011 @ 7pm GMT will be featuring the dubious talents of myself. We had a really good chat about what makes good metal, talked about the [intlink id=”55″ type=”page”]November Aria EP[/intlink], next year’s album Vultures, and Doris Yeh, the hottest woman in black metal.

We shared playlist duty, which means that as well as including a few of my favourites, I got to pillage his library for stuff I knew I need to check out (think Akercocke) and listen to some new bands. We’d actually met at a gig the night before, so also got to play the bands we’d seen, and chat about how great live music is.

Maybe 2011 should see Wrapped in a Sheet become a gigging band.



Wrapped in a Sheet on Phoenix Radio


RedBeard, the fella who does the Ship O’ Metal show on Phoenix Radio, has just told me that his next show will include John Proctor from the November Aria EP in its playlist! What a fucking win.

The Ship goes out from Phoenix Radio every Tuesday between 7 and 9 pm. If you don’t already listen, you’re a cock. If you do, you’ll be hearing my orrible little licks amongst the greats!




…Right, I think I’m done…

EP’s been polished and published, BandCamp’s kicking (and telling me that two people have downloaded the November Aria EP! I’m pretty psyched. I hope they like it), I finally figured that fucking Facebook fanbollix out. Of MySpace, I denounce those proceedings; I quit that court. Completely don’t know why they had to screw with it.

Eitherwise, point is, I think this site’s finished being designed, all the stuff have been made… now all I have to do is continue creating Vultures, next year’s full-length album. Obviously, when the MP3s are finished, I’ll upload them here so you can download them for free.

I love free music. Wonder how long it’ll be before I go bad?

Exciting times; I’ve been talking to RedBeard at the Ship o’ Metal radio show, with hopes to be a guest on his show over the Christmas/New Year’s holiday. He said bring ale. Whoever passes out first either wins or loses.

I wonder who will.
