Video! Gig! Album!

Glasgow people and those of you who are conveniently Glasgow adjacent: please do join us (Mister Hughes &the Crow Bone Chorus) TONIGHT at The 13th Note with special guests John Alexander and Gar Hunter for an evening of roots rock, alt.blues, country and Americana. We’ll be launching our new album Seeing Ghosts, which will be available in a strictly limited DIY CD edition at a celebratory discount.

Here’s the link to the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/348622949026781/?ti=as

All manner of this and that.

Rehearsals with The Crow Bone Chorus have been going very well indeed, with some covers added to the mix. They’re sounding good and fit well with the set. There’s already enough material there to play as long a set as is needed with a varied set list from gig-to-gig. We’ve also started work on a demo which will likely be a YouTube/Soundcloud only kind of a thing.

While there’ll be a self-promoted gig or two announced very soon, we’re also looking for a booker to help us out (particularly with gigs further afield). Although I intend to concentrate my efforts on full band gigs, The Craig Hughes Two will soon be back up to speed for more stripped-back live work. A couple more rehearsals and we should be there.

I’m also having thoughts on a maybe-kinda acoustic-ish project, a solo thing. More on that when I’ve clued myself in!


New video, new song #3.

Here’s the last of the rough cuts from the Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus showcase, Made a Thing. Although I’ve been saying these would all be new songs, this one has actually been in the solo and duo live sets for a couple of years. New to most, though.


New video, new song #2.

Here’s the second of the rough cut videos/new songs as detailed in yesterday’s post.  This one’s called The Lum’s on Fire.  One more to come.


New video, new song #1.

I played my first gig with The Crow Bone Chorus a couple of weeks ago. We recorded it on a wee Zoom handheld doohickey and luckily someone had a camcorder running too (cheers, Craig Ferguson!).  Of course nothing was intended for public consumption and the lighting etc. was hardly conducive to quality visuals but we did do some new stuff.  So here’s the first of three of those new tunes, Catch a Break.

The others will be uploaded over the next few days. It’s all pretty rough – hopefully worth a look/listen, though.

 


A Picture and a Poster.

Today we have for your entertainment and edification an actual photograph of Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus in all our hoary glory plus a poster for the upcoming Glasgow showcase with Jim Dead at The Audio Lounge.  Enjoy.

May 5 gig


Ner ner ner, ner ner ner-ner, ner ner ner, ner ner.

Time to start back into the world, specifically of live music.  I’ll be playing an afternoon showcase gig with The Crow Bone Chorus at The Audio Lounge in Glasgow on Saturday, May 5th.  Special guest will be me old mucker Jim Dead.  Looking forward to it.

More details to come, though despite the title of this post, I can already confirm that we will not in fact be playing Smoke on the Water.
