Work starts on the studio this Monday. Yes that’s right… After nearly a three year wait (we can hardly believe we’re saying that), stage one of the studio will begin any-day-now. We haven’t picked curtains, we haven’t picked a name, we’re just building a room because that’s where it all begins. A room. We might call that Room A. Who knows! Stay tuned for more on the studio as we document this fuckers life step by step.

Our friends Lost in the Woods were happy to play Guinea Pigs as we experimented with two camera angles last week! Check it out… And yes, we know fades aren’t cool but we challenge you not to use them. D(s)OP Radi and Tania Safi. Nice.
Monday is meant to be our blog roll day. It’s when we (me) go through our blogs, update everything and make sure everything is fresh and up to date. It takes more than a day actually and is slowly consuming our (my) entire life. But… some noteworthy tidbits: the poster for Happy! has been slightly re-designed. Some re-titling, we’re getting more adventurous with colour AND we added an extra butterfly. Nice. Also, Sunday last was a great night though sadly a little quieter than we would have liked. Atlas B Salvesen is a star and well worth checking out. We’ll get him in again for sure. Looking forward to next week and seeing Serge and his cabaret outfit On the Stoop. Whoop! Whoop! Thanks to DPM for the new blog design they did for us.
Peaks and troughs are of little consequence as we charge forward into our third week of Happy gigs. One of the highlights for us last Sunday was Yukio by Big Smoky. Don’t let the half speed bees fool you. They’re only there to cover up some shady camera work. And just like a peatie, well aged Dalwhinnie Highland single malt, Smoky deliver and hit the spot. Enjoy.
Doing the research for the Happy shows wasn’t easy but it was a heap of fun. One of the first bands we came across that really got our attention were Jenny Broke the Window. Crisp, tight, edgy pop. We couldn’t fault a single track on their myspace page (and we’re certainly not here to review bands), but we can gladly report that they did not disappoint on stage. Look forward to having them join us again in November. Circle’s cover Elliott Smith‘s Baby Britain has been getting some great feedback.
For those who weren’t lucky enough to catch it, here’s a video of Circle’s rendition of Elliot Smith’s classic Baby Britain.
