We(my wife is the lead singer)needed a break after ten solid years running our previous band. Then we started looking for new members and had a few false starts with various people until we found an experienced and talented lineup of genuinely nice, hard-working people. Their CVs are very impressive, including albums, a PhD in music, headline tours, music production credits with the BBC and other big companies and some collaborations with the great and the good of the music world, but I see no egos so far. Tonight we head off to the Yorkshire countryside to a very smart country house hotel for our first gig, a private function. We're a bit nervous, but well-prepared (I think). No pictures yet, no recordings, no website but I'll tell you how it goes.

Thanks all. The gig went well, though as a first outing it took much longer than usual to set up and pack away, as we knew it would. I reflected on that as I unloaded back home at 3.00am. The gig was a 50th wedding anniversary party and the family had booked the whole hotel, so it was a good atmosphere. The opening song was unusual - a gipsy jazz version of All of Me featuring our drummer on viola and the keys player on the kit with brushes. We won`t always open with that but it seemed appropriate. I`ve had four hours sleep but am enjoying that wrecked but happy feeling, I`ve missed it. Time for more coffee.

Returning to the vampire lifestyle gets harder as we get older.

Renfield! Put down the roach!
