Benblog 'The Royal Act'

Good morning gomez world. Thank god after eight years we finally have a proper site and also this great if potentially dangerous outlet for our inane ramblings. This morning finds me a little worse for wear as a big bully named Dajon locked Balls, Peacock, Blacky and I in his house, plied us with booze and forced to listen to a band he refered to as 'the royal act' (this turned out to be Queen). I left Dajon and Bally at four in the morning as they started to discuss in great detail the finer points of Mercurys stage attire - most unpleasant. Thank god for Olly who is currently saving my life with tea. The last week or so has been a very busy one in Gomez world and, despite Ian's incesscent whining about the British weather, pretty productive. We've been getting the new tunes into a good state for Austin (the new record is fantastic), recording B-sides and generally gearing up for the latest onslaught. If anyones stuck for new tunes check out a record called 'this is...' by a band called Tuung, this may be a little hard to get hold of but definitely worth while. The singer is an old friend of mine called Sam Genders who taught me how to play slide guitar. Very nice of him...anyway onwards. Ben.
