So where were we? Oh yes, last year we went to Japan and played, we released a Box Set that we’re all very proud of and then Michelle left the band we were very lucky that Henrik joined the band and then we played the Christmas party…… PHEW! I guess I should fill you all in a bit more.
So, the Christmas party was at our studio in London Bridge. Expectations were running high as this was the last time we held a party at the studio before it closed at the beginning of 2013. I’m pleased to say the party was an absolute blast and it was lovely to see past and present members of the band there. Live music came from our dear friends WWJD (What Would Jimmy Do), Henrik, Jamie Lawson, Feldspar, Ben Montague and Farrah played three brand new songs as well. The party went well into the early hours and was a fitting way to end our 7 years at ‘Diversion Studios’. It’s hard to believe we recorded ‘Stopgap Product, Cut Out And Keep’ and ‘Farrah’ there.
So where is Farrah HQ now I hear you murmur anxiously? Well we’ve moved into a brand new studio complex in Kings Cross. Our neighbours are Mark Ronson, Basement Jaxx, La Roux and many other big acts and writers. In fact I’m writing this as I’m waiting to go to rehearsal so I’m sat in the Kings Cross Starbucks as the snow swirls outside.
2013 will see a lot of recording from the band and a smattering of live appearances as well. We’re playing with Ben Montague in London and elsewhere next month and in May we’re playing with the fabulous Pugwash before heading over to Madrid to play there. More details on the gigs page…
We’re all really excited about the new record and the new Kings Cross home (although we’ll all miss Al’s Café in Bermondsey). I hope you’re all having a great start to 2013.
See you soon we hope
Andrew, Dana, Henrik and Jez
