British Motor Show
Good news for any petrol-heads out there! Los Trios Marillos (Steve H, Pete T and I) will be performing at the British Motor Show in London on the 23rd of July. We will be playing two sets on the Bose stand at 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm (times are approximate) for between 30 and 40 minutes.
Details of the event are available on www.britishmotorshow.co.uk (I'm looking forward to checking out the rest of the show, too, as I am a bit of a car nut.)
I've nearly finished recording all my guitar parts for the new album. It's sounding great. Producer Mike Hunter has done an excellent job.
In any spare time I have I'm slowly moving forward with the new Wishing Tree album. I really hope to have it finished by the end of the summer, it's driving me a little crazy!

I'm also in the process of rebuilding my touring guitar rig. The two huge flight-cased set-up I've been using for the last few years is at times noisy and unreliable (not helped by some of the European gigs being next to train lines!).
It also isn't ideal for a festival situation, so I've decided to simplify things and switch to using the guitar rig controller I used on most of the Los Trios shows as the main brain/switcher in the system. This is an amazing unit and well worth checking out if you play guitar.
