Ah there you are. A blissful 5 minutes sleep and up again to tackle another lovely frosty day. A late night last night at the Radio Theatre for another recording of "Act Your Age" (meeting bloggers Deebee and Mo, get well soon Alex) which was a good one I think. The series starts in 3 weeks on Radio 4 at 6.30pm. Which is one reason why I never hear it go out 'live'. It's what iPlayer is for I guess.
Today we feature Beady Eye on the show. This is Liam Gallagher's new band;essentially it's Oasis without Noel. I always imagined that it would be Noel who would be first to the ball with a new record. Whenever there was new promotion to be done and songs to be sung, it was always Noel who would do the work. How would they cope without him? On the basis of this new album, very well appears to be the answer. 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' is a good listen, with a band clearly enjoying themselves and listening to 60's psychedelia and rock and roll. Hold onto to your hats for Noel and Gem Archer from Beady Eye at 6.
And for tunes? Well it's SHROVE TUESDAY and MARDI GRAS at the start of Lent and that should keep us all busy for a while. A fine selection of pancakes and lemon would be nice but the final "Act Your Age" recording beckons and traditional puddings are in scant supply.
Have a rewarding and purposeful Tuesday. See you after 5
