Blog: MJ Says

< previous next >
In correspondence with the GRATE Mr Eddy Bewsher (who's putting us on in HULL) yesterday, he gave me ANOTHER brilliant idea. Eddy seems to be LORD of GRATE ideas just at the moment, and is trying to get us mentioned in all sorts of places, not least The Daily Sport. He suggested to me that getting some band T-Shirts would be a really good idea - not because it would lead to us actually selling any or anything, but because, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, it persuades people that the purveyors of said garments were WORTH LISTENING TO, and thus increases sales of CDs.

Sounds a bit crazy to me, but also sort of cool. More than anything, it's a GRATE excuse to get some t-shirts done, so I have been INVESTIGATING cheapo t-shirt emporiums. Also I've been trying to think of what to PUT on these shirts. My first idea was to have one saying "MJ Hibbett & The Validators Say - SHIT THEN:SHIT NOW", this being something that I, at least, have been saying a lot just lately e.g. "Heavy Metal? Shit then, shit now". On reflection though, this would take quite a lot of explanation for those wearing the shirts, and would probably be better recycled as a song. Which it may well be.

Other than that, I thought maybe just "Things'll Be Different (when I'm in charge)", or perhaps the whole second verse of "Easily Impressed" (the big list of Things I Like). I don't know, but it's nice to think about.

Also at the moment we're considering recording the NEXT album in a country cottage over an extended weekend. See previous sentence.
