Drummer Found

Last night I re-connected via WhatsApp with Walt Fulde, the drummer from The Havering. Walt happened across The Havering page on Bandcamp, as per my previous post.

Fortunately, Walt has previous form when it comes to responding to bulletin boards. Below are the original posters we displayed across the Stanford Campus when seeking a drummer almost thirty years ago. Walt responded, completing our four-piece. Zooming forward three decades, we will now embark on some transatlantic musical collaborations. Stay tuned.

The Havering

I came across some old recordings of The Havering, a band I played in whilst at Stanford University in California. We were active from 1989 to 1991. Perhaps it could be claimed that the songs have aged reasonably well, or then again, maybe they haven’t ? Judge for yourself, if you so wish. All songs can be streamed from here (via BandCamp, a well-organised resource for musicians, took me only a couple of hours to post the songs up there today).



It’s been ten years since I started this blog. Until now, I’ve been using Blogger (from Google). I’ve finally made the decision to move away. Reason: the Blogger editor has steadily become unusable in my opinion. For example, it is now impossible to copy-and-paste text without the underlying html getting messed up. I persevered because of inertia. But the time has come.

So here I am now. On Albeit another hosted blog site (since I don’t have the inclination to configure and manage a self-hosted site). I’ve also gone for a bit of a facelift. The old site seemed dark and closed-in. This is the opposite. Light and open (I hope).

For archive purposes, I will keep the existing posts on Blogger.

For convenience, here is my latest post from Blogger:
