One More Time
Originally, there were four of us, back in 1976, the year I started songwriting. We were all together in a band called Lakeside. There was me, (guitars) John Williams (keyboards and Brenda's boyfiend,) Bob Neal (Bass) and Brenda Pinnington (vocals and John's Girlfriend.) Without Brenda there would have been no band as us three blokes couldn't sing! So, when Brenda and John broke up, Lakeside broke up - which was a shame. John and I, who wrote most of the songs carried on and eventually, started to write long instrumentals to give the world a break from our voices. We were entirely studio based and continued doing this together until 1986 when we just ground to a natural halt, which was also a shame but we had exhausted that way of doing things at that point in time. I started songwriting again and over the last couple of years have begun to be less bashful about my voice and have put together an album called Deep Blue Water. (From Lakeside to Bluewater - my life in shopping centres! People living in Kent and Essex will know what I mean.) John kindly played synth on one of the tracks and Andy Burnham, another friend spared my blushes by singing two of the others. I am also putting together an album called Animal Compassion, which is devoted to a theme by which any society with pretensions to civilisation should be judged, how it treats or mistreats, its non human inhabitants.
