once i've finished this record you'll be sick of the sight of me,i am really enjoying NOT playing much,although i have done some live stuff,weller,Elbow,Pulp and Duane Eddy its the longest period of time i have had at home for 17 years,since my daughter was born in fact....to put that in perspective she was born on the first date of the Pulp lipgloss tour with the Longpigs supporting in 1993 which is another universe from here.........i am feeling refreshed and ready for the next stage in my life.........just hope everyone will still be interested in the music after such a long absence
i have also found a cure for my suspected arthritis in my left hand,it was looking like i might have to retire as the pain was so horrendous i just couldn't play.........it is triggered.......by wait for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tomatoes ..............i haven't eaten one for three months and i have NO pain,it is also triggered by red wine,cigs,potato's and fucking aubergines .....i can live without the humble aubergine but life without fags,ale and chips is unthinkable..........so the tomato's have gone.......ah shame.....i love me pasta me
Made me smile as I am growing loads of tomatoes outside this year. They have only just started to change colour and I started to pick them a couple of days ago. I will think of you Richard every time I eat one. Hope you won't miss them too much.
You so deserve taking a break. I will always be interested in your music. The comments on You tube when someone new "discovers you" are a joy to read. Heres to live shows when they come!!!!!! xx
