Time on the Isle

Recording of Robbie Bundle's next album commences in two weeks, RMIT tenure resumes shortly thereafter, so it was time to take some time out. An offer to spend time on the beautiful Phillip Island simply could not be ignored so here we are until next week. The locals are a great mob, the water is beautiful, the weather divine, the surf magnificent ... hmm, noted the number of houses for sale ... I wonder if we could ...

Blues in the Sun

Off to Broadbeach Blues Festival this week, performing four shows with the wonderful Stevie Paige. We performed there last year with a band that was put together essentially for the festival; this time the band is somewhat more "brewed" and I'm really looking forward to the shows. Stevie and I will do a couple of spots as a duo also, with the band joining us for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Apparently "Sunny One Day ... the next" I've checked the forecast and it looks like rain. Never could trust the tourism catch-cries. Nonetheless I'm intending to bathe my white moon-tan in the sea every day, regardless of the temperature.
