Tumbling Dice

By |February 8th, 2019|

Now that the album is out there is still much to do in the sofa camp. We are getting ready for a return to Liverpool and the brilliant International Pop Overthrow festival in May, Pete’s already booked his room so he’s in for a great weekend and so the many thousands that flock to this magical city

Believe me, while the album was being put together a whole bunch of other songs were written in the meantime so while we are rehearsing for our Liverpool return we are also laying tracks

With the birth of Hazy Lemon in July 2017, I was able to listen to many long lost gems and also like a sponge I began to write reams of songs which we have been looking back on. I do have to say what a great songwriting partner Martin Gilman is who turns up each Sunday evening and we jam

Sofa’s got plenty more to say and plenty more to do like a tumbling dice the way they bounce along the ground not knowing which number you will get and like life which twists and turns can swing you into a different direction and orbit………..when do we leave?

With the new album in the March Issue Of Mojo Magazine, I was proud to see the advert next to Dav

It’s been a busy time for Sofa and the last 22 months I have had great support from Joe, Martin, Pete & Magic Alex they have been my rock and jumped into the making of my all-time favorite sofa album

Most of the songs were written as we went along and I would present them to the guys, It wasn’t till February 2018 that I began to think of a cover. With trepidation, I told the guys I wanted to re-create the famous Abbey Road cover but In Station Road Hatton
No one batted an eyelid and I was pleased and set about planning it, I love that cover it’s my favorite cover for Sofa it really is a good cover and one that stands us out

I was so lucky to find Micheal who mixed the album for us he’s been a great laugh and support, He found the bass playing very flourishing on this album and could tell that Pete and Alex played together, “Hey Dude you got a powerhouse their man”

With the new album in the March Issue Of Mojo Magazine, I was proud to see the advert next to Dave Bowie a true icon and maybe a sign.
