This is where everyone (one of the many one off line ups of 2011 with Trigger returning on bass, Mark Braby on drums and Yusuf B'layachi moving to guitar for the trip- VEY lucky to have such a talented and versatile group of musicians to turn to) stayed in Vic, one of Vic and the gnu's favourite hotels, a truly unique place, very welcoming (especially from Mistu, the VERY friendly and loveable resident Jack Russell)and definitely recommended if you visit Vic, which is also highly recommended. It is a very piggy place and related products abound, so if you're not keen on meat, like the gnu,there are also lots of peppers, tomatoes and pasta and a local speciality- a very, very thick hot chocolate, for dunking in to and scooping out with the local speciality biscuit.
This is the whole gang-the Sect lot, the Vic lot and the Barcelona lot after the last gig in Barcelona, Vic was staying on to record and the rest were returning home the next day.
RELEASE NEWS #2 Delight all round that 2 songs from the 4 so far recorded will be released as a 7" single on Aed records in January 2013-keep an eye out for news of the date and I will find out if I can show off Andrew Shaw's brilliant cover. The two numbers are Caught in Midstream and You Bring Out The Demon In Me, recorded at West Heath Studios, produced by Edwyn Collins with Kevin Younger, Mark Braby, Paul Cook, Paul Myers,Simon Rivers and Vic. Edwyn has a new album out Spring 2013, Understated and will be touring 'across the land' Also to come on Aed early 2013 is the re-release of End of the Surrey People On the Gnu Inc front Live and Rare Vol 2 has been very positively received, Vol 3 will be even better. GI has also done a very limited run of 50 epcds for Vic.ism- 'Vic Godard & The Sexual Objects Live at Love's Rebellious Joy August 2011.
