Last week I had a second rehearsal with Chris Evans (Angelou’s original bassist) whilst Cass The Studio Dog watched over proceedings.
I met Chris many, many years ago at Backs Records/Shellshock Distribution (home of Haven Records). He joined Angelou when we were about to make the second album ‘While You Were Sleeping’, and played some gorgeous double bass on songs like Shipping News, Little Sister, Rise Up. So – this December just gone, we bump into each other and it turns out we’d both been thinking of getting in touch about musical things. I’d been wanting to find a guitarist, Chris was looking for a band. Serendipity struck. Love it when that happens.
Sounds good so far, and feeling keen to get out there and start playing again. Must be the Angelou magic working it’s wicked ways..
