An old friend, half-jokingly, asked me the other day whether or not I had slipped into some sort of mid-life crisis, what with all of the old music stuff I posted here recently. I just smiled. I'm too busy looking forward to be in a mid-life crisis (besides, I intend to download my consciousness into a robot at some point, so I hope to live to 1,000, meaning I'm nowhere near mid-life yet!).
Nope. I just happened to be in a musical mood because I'm planning my return to the music career. Well, "career" is a stretch (don't worry, Linda - I'm not going back to playing gigs for $100 a night), but I've got some unfinished business to take care of - namely, an album's worth of songs that were half-finished when Julia's Rain broke up in 1998. I hauled out the tapes the other day, and had a listen, and the songs are as good as I remembered, so I'll be putting a band together this summer to finish the project under the name "The Spartacus Union". The album will be titled "Strange Deliverance".
Coming to the Internet and a record store near me sometime in fall, 2006. I'll provide an update when it's done.
Back in the musical saddle again.
Time to tune up the Les Paul!
