A Note from the Front-line of the War against Technology.

Gradually chipping away at technical issues which have prevented updates to the new(ish) Mister Hughes website and, as I’m just finding out, some here as well.  The main website needs a lot more doing to it but one thing that passed it by and this blog too was the most recent Mister Hughes & the Crow Bone Chorus video, Catch a Break.  Check it below but be warned: it has a spider.

Normal service will hopefully be resumed soon, with actually improved service soon thereafter.

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.

Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus

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.


Off the Cuff is finally available.

So, finally.  The new Craig Hughes Two EP is available as a Bandcamp exclusive (download/streaming).  Listen via the player below, then buy it for whatever price you see fit to pay, including of course absolutely nothing at all.  You cheap bastard.

Enjoy.
