I debuted my new looping project live on air just to make sure any disasters would be as embarrassing as possible. It was rushed since I just got back from the UK and still ironing out details. As it turned out, the worst of it was that I freaked out the soundguy who couldn’t deal with how loud my output signal was. I stumbled in the middle when he threw up his hands in frustration at the distortion, and apparently he stopped and started the podcast just before that so the recording is missing a chorus. Oh, and the intro ran a little long while I accepted that I had a bad cable and would only have one in-ear monitor…but in the end it was a successful test of the system. I likened it to landing a plane with 2 engines out. Now I need to work up enough songs with it for a live set.
I couldn’t have had more fun as we wandered through England, Ireland, and Scotland for the C2C shows. It was as unique and amazing as the countries themselves are.
What a fun tour this was. We got back to basics. And brought back the “get everybody onstage” curtain call. It was a short but sweet run that was a reminder that we don’t need all the smoke and mirrors to have fun.
