    Make sure you do. Especially if you're playin in Dundalk, big town in the North-East at the border half way between Dublin (AKA the s**tHole) and Belfast. If you do, you'll probably be playing "the Spirit Store"....lovely venue. Loads of people (all talented :) ) play there.

    Good Luck,
    C.

    Sounds like a nice trip - I'm envious Howard!! ;)

    So - what did you tell them you are doing at work?
    I remember once (many years ago) getting special (unpaid) leave to attend a college reunion, when I was in a recording studio!! :D

    i just booked holidays and i told them i was going on a mini-tour!
    everyone on my team has taken extended leave in the past year to go travelling, snowboarding etc - we're all under 30 (well, ahem, just!). So it's no biggy, a pretty flexible employer.

    Last week I spent two days in Metropolis Studios is Chiswick :) t'was amazing!

    Last week, I was mostly on the beach in Aghios Gordios, Corfu - Greece!

    That was also amazing, though in a somewhat different way! ;)

    Beats Chiswick hand down.. although I doubt the recording facilities were on a par ;)

    It was a weird week, I spent 2 hours laying down bass tracks and the rest of it drinkning coffee, asking questions and generally learning about the studio.

    We recorded 5 tracks and they sound like "a proper record" - massive and really punchy, we got an amazing recording.
