On April 29th, we held an open rehearsal at my place in Newport. I’ve only recently moved in, and was the first rehearsal that I’d had in the studio at the back of the house. The room was cosy, especially once we were joined by some prospective clients, but it proved to be a great space for making music in, and the cupcakes that I baked for the occasion were particularly tasty. I set up some video cameras and a simple recording rig, so you can see what it was like. Don’t be concerned by the fact that Mary Louise disappears at one point – she was there, really, she just managed to evade the cameras.
