Now...where were we?

As I've been hived away writing during a lot of my spare time over the last 18 months or so I became increasingly aware that I owed quite a few of my old friends a visit. The last thing I wanted to do is to completely lose touch with my dear chums and what better time to see them than over summer, when you can sit in the garden with a few drinks? So: I've been busy zig-zagging around playing catching up but (perhaps surprisingly, when I think back) I've still been finding some time to write.

My progress now finds me at the point of the third Ash Ra Tempel album Seven Up. The section discussing Timothy Leary and his pre-A.R.T. background, leading up to the stage at which he met up with the band in Switzerland was rather painstaking to research first time around and I'm now polishing, editing and adding to my original draft. It's good to see the earlier research paying off as things start to take shape....

Well: I'm going to dash now. The clock is ticking away and I'm hoping to find a reasonable pocket of time today to make some more progress with things. Bye for now and speak soon!
