Hi everyone, I hope you are all managing to stay healthy and well, we are certainly living
in unsettling times to say the least. A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who is still out there
working in their various fields to make life so much more bearable for the rest of us. In particular
to the NHS and the care sector who are continuing to do an incredible job in seriously tough and challenging
circumstances I salute you!
It probably goes without saying that the current situation has also played a bit of havoc with the recording of the new Infomaniacs album which had been rolling along nicely with Infomaniacs regulars Neil Menzies (Bass), Dave Andrews (Lead Guitar) and Marc Tuffley (Drums) on board. We have recorded six full band songs so far under the expert guidance of Johnny Smillie at La Chunky Studios in Glasgow and though some of them still have a little work to be done they are shaping up really well.
The fist single from the album is ready to go however and I still plan to release '24 Panels Of Light' in May, just a little later than first scheduled. Johnny has produced a rather fine mix of the song and I'm looking forward to getting the song out there even although sadly there obviously won't be any live shows to accompany the release of the single. I'll be trying to compensate for this a bit by putting some video performances on the site in the coming weeks, so get your song requests in folks and we'll try and have a fair bit of fun with this.. One of our favourite artists Joe Evans has provided the fantastic artwork for the single and I expect the single will be available from the usual digital outlets with a CD release to follow at a later date. Stay tuned for more details, I should have an official release date set in the near future.
With all of my regular musical work engagements cancelled for the foreseeable future I have had the time to finish some of my new songs which have been stacking up and I've been enjoying some home recording in the past few weeks. The rest of the band will all be getting involved in these too and it'll be interesting to hear how the first 'remotely recorded' Infomaniacs tracks come out in the wash! The plan is to use the tracks as part of the '24 Panels Of Light' release (initially as a digital EP) which you will soon be able to pick up from this site.
Please visit the site in the coming weeks for loads of new content for your amusement..expect loads of new music, rarities from the back catalogue and the aforementioned live videos. I'm also using the time to set up a new Neil Sturgeon Music youtube channel which will feature some old live performances seeing the light of day for the first time. Thanks everyone for your continued support and I hope you enjoy returning to the site again in the near future. Take care out there . NS April 2020.
