I realize I can bore for England on the topic of my kids, but this time it's something special (honest, guv). I've mentioned before over on the Mothership that mrdebbyjr writes his own songs, and I may well have regaled you all with tales of his fearless performance in a packed pub at a party a couple of weeks ago.
Last weekend was the little summer festival we run in the Schroederstift (that's the place we live) and Sam and his band played their first ever gig, Saturday afternoon up on the main stage. For 13 year-olds on their first outing it wasn't half bad! They sold every single copy of their recently recorded CD, and that at EUR 5 a pop - there's hope he'll earn his own college fees yet...
The sound man was great with the lads (they'd never even done a soundcheck before) and made them a little recording of their set. Unfortunately it seems to have gone on holiday with the Young Master, so I'm going to try and upload one of his solo songs (they're all I can find on this computer). So, this is Sam & his magic pedal (many thanks to tincanman for patience & technical information)
My Dear Cousin
And this is the band with a track off their CD (but I'm not sure if this is the final mix!) available to anyone interested in about a month's time, courtesy of Proud Mum
Shark in the Jungle
P.S. Just in case anyone starting up a RRecord lable is interested in this (hint, hint) - surprisingly enough they're not signed yet!
