I feel the time is good one for Mouse Organ and the future. I am upgrading my whole software to hope to produce music much more to what I want to do, to write more soundscapes and classical pieces, hopefully write music for TV and film in and around Glasgow. That is the goal anyhow.
DR - Definitely looking forward to getting our hands on the NHC Records compilation vinyl – some great bands on there with us. We’ve got a few gigs planned over the summer. And we’re doing a Night of the Dead gig in Ayr on Halloween weekend – that’s now an annual tradition with it being the third year we’ve done it in the same venue. Beyond that, we’re still writing and plan to get back into the studio to do some more recordings later in the year.
JB: Yup, Undercover Lover as John mentioned, will be our follow up single to Stop Teasin’. We’re always keeping ourselves busy with music and always keeping the creative energy flowing. We have also been back in recording some new tracks with Kieran Robertson from Till death do us part and Geoff Tate’s Operation Mindcrime so look for them soon along with our debut album as we hit the studio in the springtime.
Growing up I was a huge fan of Stewart Copeland (the Police) but as time goes on I have embraced a greater respect for Steve White (The Style Council, Paul Weller band & The family Silver) Craig Blundell (an ex-Marine bugler mate and top session Player) Dave McCluskey (The Quireboys, The Union) and the attack drumming of the sadly departed John Bradbury (The Specials)
