Another Friday, another band practice. We ran through the set we'll play at our gig on February 17th, and then we messed around with some cover versions, old and new. You haven't heard "Are Friends Electric" until you've heard it played by Salter Cane.

In the Metway Studio.

Salter Cane were rockin last night, or perhaps alt-countryin? Great gig guys. The support band, Funes (not pronounced how it looks), were rather good too. Though I think most would agree the gig would have been better somewhere a bit bigger and a lot colder. Sorry adactio, you were moving about too much in the shadows for my poor phone camera to cope. I've had to blast this with various filters to take the edge off the noise as it is. It will be interesting to see how scribex's holga photos come out.

Salter Cane spent two days at the Metway Studio recording an album's worth of cover songs. It was quite fun, though I was having to juggle work at the same time, which meant that when I wasn't playing the bass, I was frantically checking my email.

Quite a turnout for a Tuesday night.

Empty venue is empty. Thank goodness it filled up by the time we were on stage.

She is, unsurprisingly, a fan of Gothic Country so she should enjoy the new Salter Cane album.
