Zoe had a triumphant weekend making her directing debut at The Battersea Arts Centre, London. I am very proud of her. The whole Reardon clan were over in London to see her production of Dennis Kelly's play AFTER THE END and we were all blown away.
Now it's back to music, playing the Regal Rooms in Hammersmith this Wednesday 22nd http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=222425871115725 and then I think I may have a last minute ticket to Glastonbury.....Zoe aint happy!
See ya'll soon. Happy summertime. We're back home for Castle Palooza on the 30th of July!
Hey, it's been a little while and haven't written here in a long time so thought I'd update you all on what's going on with MiC.
So we had a busy 2010, things went well for us and we finished off the year supporting Snow Patrol on Arthur's Day, releasing our first single PUSH ME UNDER with Universal and doing loads of gigs in Ireland after having been away from home for so long.
Then everything changed and a move to London was suddenly on the cards, freaked me out a little I have to admit cos I don't think I was ready to leave New York but with the support from the Snow Patrol team based mainly in London the move here made sense. It's been a crazy few months since we moved here in January. With yet another relocation it has meant Zoe and I have had to find yet another Band. Tuba players aren't easy to find!
We found a great rehearsal space in Bethnal Green, called The Empire - http://www.theempirelondon.com/ It's a deadly little hub with the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, The Klaxons and Noah and the Whale buzzin' about. Not bad company to keep! Zoe and I have been working on new material and improving old tunes and enjoying this time to develop the music and make sure our debut EP/ Album blows you all away!
We have just recently got a band together here in London, in fact our first full band rehearsal will be this weekend so we'll let you know how that goes. Thinking about bringing electric bass into the mix...what you reckon? We'll be demoing the tunes we are considering for the EP towards the end of April and sending them out to producers we'd like to work with and hope to have an EP ready for a summer release.
In the meantime we are finally getting back to doing some live shows, Zoe and I went back to NYC a couple of weeks ago for a show in the Mercury Lounge with The Coronas, The Mighty Stef and Colin Devlin. It was a crazy night, The Mighty Stef went to Zoe's head and she started smashin bottles of vodka on the dance floor. I told her we couldn't afford that kind of rock n roll behaviour..well not yet anyway! We will be back in Ireland again over Easter, we play the BARN DANCE in Kildare on Good Friday and then it's back to London for our first gig here on the 26th in the GARAGE, Islington.
So, that's basically what's been going on in MiC land. We've been off the radar for a while but we'll be back with a bang in the summer. Once we have this record ready to go we'll be gigging every day if we can. Launches for the EP are planned for London, Dublin and NYC! Exciting times.
Hope you are all happy and healthy!
