Is it Christmas already? You betcha. And in the best Fisheye tradition, we’re able to whip the wrapper off this year’s seasonal contribution to the Xmas Spectacularama canon - a cover of a rather fun little rocker from The Eels, ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas’. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did putting it together – which was a new experience for us, in that there was no point in the recording process when we were actually all present and correct!
While we’re dusting down 2014, there are a few other new items in Fisheyeland as in addition to the above -there are three new tracks in the Coverville section – an if-George-played-mandolin take on the Beatles’ ‘The Ballad of John & Yoko’, then a ‘roid rage Monkees version of ‘Pleasant Valley Sunday’, and lastly but by no means leastly a suitable homage to Neil Young’s ‘Powderfinger’. There are a few more of these in the pipeline, so keep an eye out for updates.
All of the above, as ever, are available for download and delectation from the Music page.
Other happenings since the last missive: we had a very enjoyable time at the Olde Blind Dog on St. Patrick’s Day, the crowd was rockin’ and the good times flowed... and we played a rather jolly birthday party early in the Summer… and that’s about it! Though recent murmurings of thoughts of perhaps a new original album were recently rumoured to have been heard…
All the best to everyone over the Holidays & for 2015!
The ‘F’ in Fisheye
