Status Graphite Streamline Five String for sale

I’ve put one of my basses up for sale. It’s the Status Graphite Streamline. A one-piece graphite bass, headless, small body, 34″ scale, five string. It’s an absolutely fantastic bass, lightweight, very portable, but with a full on, professional Status sound. I’m only selling it because I’ve got a fancy for a USA Fender Jazz five string.  So if you are interested or know someone who might be, please get in touch,

Update – you will now find the bass for sale at an excellent price at the fantastic Bass Direct shop. Here’s a link to the sale page

God’s House Band will be on our new album!

We had a great time yesterday at Red Rock Studios.  Tim wrote a song awhile back called ‘Blues Like A Prayer’, which will be the title track of the new album and we really wanted to find a gospel choir to put some backing vocals on that particular song.  A couple of months ago we played at a church in Bristol called God’s House and we approached them to see if they would be interested in helping us out.

So yesterday a handful of their members came along and put some amazing vocals down.  There were just five of them, but the magic of studios and multi-tracking soon sorted that out.

Wait until you hear this track guys, it’s incredibly beautiful.

Busy Bees at Dyrham Park

Had a couple of hours at Dyrham Park this afternoon, always a lovely place to visit.  Nice to see the bees keeping busy in the stunning gardens.
