Festival Season Fun!

August 12, 2013

Well we are finally back to normal life after over two weeks of drunken shenanigans at Wacken Open Air and Bloodstock Open Air, crossing many international borders along the way! We have Sunkfest (The first Dakesis show with that silly blue haired girl on lead vocals) next weekend to go and then we can put the tent away for another year. Festival season ’13 has been absolutely brilliant, and though I’m sad it is drawing to an end, I’m already excited for next…

July 2013 Glossybox

July 13, 2013
GB inside July

  Glossybox day is always the most exciting day of the month! I’ve been doubly excited about the July box since I saw the gorgeous turquoise print a few days ago as part of the “ready for summer” theme, and I’m glad to say the contents were just as exciting!     After a long day in the sun at work organising a performance for some pupils at my music school, I was filled with glee at my lovely blue…

At festivals, you need something that you can have on your back or over your shoudler, that is going to remain attached to you even when intoxicated. The sort of bag that does…

Fanciful Frontwoman

July 11, 2013

It’s been about seven years since I last fronted a band, and now circumstances call me to centre stage again. Now this is only planned as a temporary measure – we recently decided it was in the best interests of the band to move forwards without our ex-frontman and as we search the metalsphere for a new set of iron lungs I am taking over vocal duties.     For those not in the know – singing is actually my…
