Hi you good bunch!
Itza new day itza new dawn and with it comes our latest offering- SIRENS, although we're not quite out of the woods yet with this little bute -for some reason this particular song is proving to be a test of patience, perseverance, perspiration and all the other P words whose bi-products, once out of and through the mire, are a healthy strengthening of character and resolve! I look forward to receiving those gifts but for now I think we're still perched and poised somewhere in the middle of all this.

Can't really put our fingers on why it's gone this way- maybe we lost sight of that initial inspiration or because we wrote on different days we changed the vibe too much- who knows? But what I do know is that we have some great parts and we just need to recapture the threads that will link it all together. Giving up is not something we do- think of SUNSOMA as a three headed Jack Russell with a mighty bone - there just is no point in trying to get it off us!
So, the song WILL emerge standing tall and fully clothed in all its' glory, we're just taking a bit of time to achieve it that's all.

My PAPER SATELLITE is at last complete ( and what a size-mic arts and craft exercise it's been too! ) I'll take some pics this weekend and load it up for your perusal.

Hey did anyone see The Human Bird on T.V last week? This dude basically hurls himself off buildings and mountains in nothing more than a webbed shell suit and then pulls a parachute at the last minute- crazy crazy CRAZEEEEEE!!
I'm off to revisit Sirens and see if inspiration comes my way
Take care all

Hi allski- Hope you've had a Summer of marvellousness and are feeling refreshed and ready for all that season 3 of 2009 has to offer. We're all good here, although I must apologise for being a super sized slacker with my blogs lately- we've been doing our nomadic thing again- moving from house to house over the Summer and just busy busy with family, friends, camping trips, room makeovers and the like, and I don't know where the time's gone, but gone it has!

Lee came and hung out with us for a few weeks too- it was a real pleasure to have him about, although being of the nocturnal variety, we would sometimes pass like ships in the night! But alternate sleep patterns aside, when we did meet up it gave us a chance to work on our ideas and just be together which is a major part of being in a band too- otherwise it's way too clinical and you just become no more than work associates.

Saturday saw us back on old stomping ground- we haven't met in the church basement for months, so it was good to get back to it and a new tune is in the making! Finishing our demos had slowed up over the last couple of months so we were all hungry to make up for lost time- we're so nearly there, just need to focus on these last few numbers.

Looking forward to seeing the progress of our animation video for Paper Satellites at some point too - matey Aidan is the brains and undisputed talent behind that little project, so can't wait! When I think about it, The Sunnies have so much to look forward to and little by little it's all coming together-Happy Days! take care all Mel xxx.
