It seems to be March 2016 already… Wow, how time flies! Anyway, let’s get straight to the news!
First of all, still some bad news… My PC still has a lot of problems, and the problems are getting worse. The hard drive where I collect all my important stuff (reviews, interviews, music) is now also malfunctioning from time to time, which means I’m still not able to write proper album reviews. Of course, a lot of people recommended to write some reviews with pen and paper (and I was heavily considering it), but sadly that doesn’t solve my computer problems. By the way, my handwriting sucks, I can barely read my own handwriting when I’m making notes! 😉 Luckily the problems will be solved someday, some friends offered me help (and I can’t thank you enough dear friends). I’m not sure when all the computer problems will be solved but I hope I can do as much as I can in the meantime.
Ok, now time for some good news! The Purple Flower Progressive Hour show (containing the interviews I had with Colin Edwin, Adrian Belew and LizZard) was aired last Saturday on House of Prog! I got a lot of positive feedback from the listeners and chatters, which I really appreciate! If you missed the show, no worries, you can listen to it here:
I also recorded a new ‘Ed & Iris Discuss’ episode together with my dear colleague Ed Wilkins! We discussed Mahoney… No… Wait… Live gigs! We discussed live gigs! It’s a very interesting show filled with lovely music. I will put the show on Mixcloud soon and will also make a special post here on my own website.
Talking about Mahoney: The interview with this amazing artist will be on House of Prog soon, so please stay tuned! I also wrote an album review of his debut EP ‘You Are The Big Bang’, which you can read here: https://grendelhq.wordpress.com/2016/03/01/must-have-album-mahoney-you-are-the-big-bang-ep-2016/
Ever wondered how I sound when I play bass guitar? The band MistEir just released their debut album. I had the pleasure to play along with a couple of tracks on the album! You can find more information about it here: https://grendelhq.wordpress.com/2016/03/04/out-now-misteir-ragnarok-2016/
Well, I think this was it for now! Thank you very much for reading, my dear follower!
Hugs & snugs!
Iris, aka Ier!
