New album nearing completion – what splendour!
A typically teasing Dan post in the Ferocious Dog Facebook group today revealed that Les has been in the studio today finishing off his guitar pieces for the forthcoming album, with Dan and Ellis due in this week to finish off followed by Ken next week along with an orchestra (!). This of course implies that John and Scott are one-take wonders.
A suitably exciting way to build up to the live action restarting this Friday at The Square in Harlow. I’m looking forward to hitting the road to Essex for the next instalment of the tour – just another week of work to get out the way first!
In other news the band have confirmed they’re appearing at Nottingham’s Splendour festival this year – teeing up The Twang and Bananarama on the Confetti Stage meaning that they’ll be finished in time to check out James and The Specials on the Main Stage which – no disrespect to The Twang or Bananarama – works well for me! It’s not the first time Ferocious Dog have appeared at the festival but this time at a much more conducive time of the day.
I haven’t visited Splendour since getting rather too drunk on smuggled-in rum when the Levellers played there in 2012. I don’t have much memory of the performance but did sober up enough to snag a quick picture with Jeremy! I think I’m probably going to have to be a little more restrained this year. Just a little bit.
