Thought I’d post a bit of a update. Things are slow in the MA camp; with us now having a lot of ‘grown up’ pursuits to pursue. These two take up quite a bit of my time:
Arte (big one) & Bebe (little one)
The one thing that is receiving my attention currently is the war EP, with hopefully some big news coming soon.
The album, ‘Marry Another presents… The Enlightenment’ is still being mixed, but I’m still very much committed to releasing this.
Anyway, for now, tight lines…
So things have been a little shaken up around these parts recently, a happy/sad dichotomy. Fear not though, for we remain!
However, it is with regret that I have to announce formally the departure of Carl from the physical Marry Another stable. Carl ranks amongst the greatest people that I know, and has been massively influential in the way that Marry Another has gone forward; both musically and schematically. Put short, we owe him a lot, and wish him the best of luck with his further ventures! Carl will remain the studio bassist with Marry Another; which, with him being near enough irreplaceable is a very good thing! Unfortunately it will not be in the near future that you see him rocking out with us on stage, but I’m not ruling it out entirely.
Two thousand and twelve has had its ups and downs, the good, the bad; all have had their impact on our ability to be a ‘band’. Personal loss has had its part to play in my particular case. But with the advent of a new year we have new hope, and as such should have some news line up wise in the coming weeks, hopefully leading to a renewed impetus.
Our album, ‘The Enlightenment’, should be finished within the next couple of months; with that in mind we would like to thank Tim at Voltage for his involvement, stellar chap that he is.
To summarise, one way or another, you will be seeing and hearing much more of us this year than last!
All the best.
Adrian and Marry Another.
Following on from Adrians post. I wanted to fill you in on the recording process for this song. We wanted a specific sound for it. I hope that we got it.
The feel of the song we were going for was that of a campfire sing-a-long. We decided to record Adrian live with just 2 mics in the room aimed at him but not closely. We wanted to capture the rooms natural acoustic properties and not make it sound too polished. Basically, vocal and Continue reading
I haven’t written anything for a while, far too long a while in my opinion. So with that thought churning within me: here is a song. It’s interesting I think. And here is how I came about it:
I was in receipt of a letter, not just any old letter; I get them from time to time. This was a letter from a Japanese POW Camp. And literally, it made me think.
So as with all the stuff I’ve written about war, this became something I wanted documenting. With this impetus I turned my inspiration into a song; this isn’t words to music as such. My ideas married with theirs.
Anyway, I had an idea, because my grandfather was a participant. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it.
When people say nice things, it feels nice right?
And when they mean it, it’s even better. Right again?
Liz over at BackStreetIndie wrote this about us…http://bit.ly/bsima
We’ve had pieces written about us before but honestly, you really should read that one. And then some of the other pieces on http://backstreetindie.blogspot.com because they talk absolute sense about music new and old.
And for good measure, read their tweets at @backstreetindie
Well, that title is a little misleading. I have swapped out some tracks in the ‘recordings’ section. ‘Grave’ and ‘A Widows Lament’ are now there for your listening pleasure. They have been available to listen to elsewhere on the net. If this is your one stop Marry Another shop though, then these will be new to you!
Enjoy. I know I just did. I forgot how lovely ‘Grave’ sounds, especially listening on my headphones. 🙂
I hope you enjoy the video. It’s just a nice simple bit of footage of the two of us (Carl & Adrian) jamming in the studio.
