On the last day of last fall’s tour with The Cut Ups, we got up early and into a studio outside Brighton to record the set live in the studio. This is the result, with no edits, overdubs, or re-takes. RIYL guitars, which I gather some do, and new songs (included is “Marfa Lights,” which people were asking if it was recorded yet). Thanks fellows!
When life gives you budget wine and rotting fruit in your dressing room…make sangria! I have no idea where the glassware came from, but I can guarantee it did not make it past Sangria Day. Other dates from this tour included such cocktails days as Martini Day, Dirty Martini Day, Rumchata Day (Rum and Horchata), and Margarita Day. A big gulp cup filled with ice from the nearest out of the way rest stop makes for a great shaker. I should share the Margarita Day story sometime…Good times. I think we played some shows at some point as well.
Sangria day, July 2006, and we’re quite serious about it.
Van drinking may make drives feel shorter, but what it really does is add an hour in bathroom breaks.
I did an acoustic session in an alley in Nottingham; a new song and “Born To Cry” by Dion & the Belmonts:
Hi. I’m planning to make a new record this spring. It’ll be called “To Us, The Beautiful!” If you think you might want it later, consider pre-ordering it. Also, I’m offering custom cover songs, Skype lessons and concerts, personalized songs, and more, to help meet the budget. Why not check it out? http://franznicolay.com/store/
I debuted a new song called “Jerusalem Against Athens” at Banquet Records the other day & they’ve posted the video.
Coming up next we’ve got Franz Nicolay + Worriers + The Cut Ups + Caves!
Tonight! FN/CU around 10pm.
