A very fun weekend for all – Carl.

So this weekend was divided in two. One half of Marry Another played a gig, the other half went to Wales for a stag do. I am in the stag do half!

So myself and our keyboardist Whisky went to our friends stag do in Wales. A weekend away with the lads and the alcohol. Friday night was spent drinking and watching the worlds greatest action movie. Black Cobra. If you don’t know it, IMDB it, and be blown away!

Saturday came, as it often does after Friday. The plan of action for Saturday. Paintballing. I had never been myself so I was very excited about it. I was also a little unprepared. Note to self: bring gloves next time! So it was 4 and a half hours of shooting at each other and strangers. Got the stag in a dress and high vis jacket to make it easier to see and therefor shoot. I was actually pretty good at it and hit numerous head shots. The evening ended with more drinking and the watching of Severance.

As we were going to bed for the night, I realised that we hadn’t messed up the stag as much as we ought to. A brief team meeting was held in the bedroom furthest from the stag and a plan was hatched. A spare mattress was to be put on top of him and he was to be duct taped to it. As a finishing touch, boxers on the head. We executed the plan perfectly I am happy to say.

Sunday brought with it an even earlier start than Saturday as we had to be out by 10am. Then it was off to the Go Kart track. I had also never done this before. So much fun. Really want to go again now. I think I caught the bug!! Got back home in time for tea, then it was back out again to carry on the drinks. Ended up somehow getting a lock in at a pub. A very messy but very fun weekend!

Productive Day II – Carl.

Yesterday we were back in the studio again. This time we were sorting out the keyboard parts. Managed to get five laid down in just under 2 hours. We are killing this album. Honest to God killing it! I really can’t wait until all the songs are done and we can share with the world the songs we have. 🙂 It’s been a long time coming and a winding road of a journey to get to this point, but I wouldn’t change anything as I think all these little upsets and mishaps have shaped the bands sound and determination to get to this point right now. 🙂

I took a few photos whilst we were at the studio the other day tracking the drums that I thought I’d share with you now. Taken on my friends Zenit EM SLR. A beast of Russian engineering and slightly confusing to use at first!

 Peace and Love.

Carl.

Zebra on the loose in Manchester! – Carl.

Did anyone see the Zebra running wild around Manchester today. It was crazy. It was in and out of shops and everything. If you know why it was loose please let us know!!!

Just in case you all don’t believe me, I managed to get a picture of it in Urban Outfitters.

My beautiful City – Carl.

One of my favourite cities in the UK also happens to be the city that is closest to me and I have lived in. Now, before you start to think that the reason for this is because I haven’t spent much time in other cities, I will mention the fact that I had a 2 year relationship with a girl who lived in Newcastle and I often pop over to Leeds and Sheffield. I just really love what Manchester has to offer. Continue reading
