Right, well here we are in Byron Bay. So far it has been raining most of the time so unfortunately, a fair bit of recording and studio time has interrupted what was supposed to be a golf/ surfing holiday. So we are in the studio working hard and waiting for the weather to break.
The most interesting and exciting thing that has happened so far is that our accommodation was 'almost' washed into the ocean. There was talk of SES evacuation plans and all sorts of amazing stuff. There have been excavators blinking, grunting and beeping day and night, filling sand bags and generally making hapless attempts to hold back the king tides that have swamped the coast these last few nights. We have armed ourselves with an EPIRBs and a surf mats in case in case our oceanside mansions are washed away in the dead of night.
Speaking of surf mats......................Cogs, DZ and Hoggy all went for a surf this morning. Cogs reports that he was 'in the green room in a wave of consequence'. He also claimed that he and Hoggy 'dominated Darius "Brizzo" Middleton while they were out there.
The second most interesting thing that happened was that JC and I both wore the same jacket to the studio on the same day. It was SO embarrassing. Luckily the paparazzi were busy shooting Cogs, Darius and Hog waxing their surfmats, to catch us in such a sartorial dilemma.
Tomorrow is "Gentleman's Friday" which is designed to improve our standard of dress, once a week, while we make our record. I will report soon about the outcome. I have especially bought a tartan green number which I am expecting will set a benchmark for the rest of the album session.
Oh yeah, and Nick Didia is back at the helm and doing a fabulous job.
OK, see you all soon.
