Laurence Campling's EP "Thank You For Asking" is released. Available via the usual streaming services, Bandcamp and right here of course.
The legendary Wavis O'Shave has an unusual way of appearing from out of nowhere every so often. Our occasional collaborations have led us into some strange places and rather unusual predicaments. Our paths cross when we least expect it. Wavis has a way of bumping into film stars, musicians, newsreaders, authors and even everyday ordinary people such as myself. What's more, he never apologizes for such an abrupt encounter, he just shows up and then disappears again... sometimes for ages, sometimes forever, sometimes until after lunch.
I am not sure if the fact that we are both from South Shields has anything to do with it or quite simply our shared love of the absurd, the unusual and a worldview that is so outside the box that it leaves our hearers wondering if there ever was a box in the first place. What box? Let me know when you find the box.
The picture above is one from Wavis' archives...of him bumping into Glen Matlock. Wavis sent the pic out of the blue and didn't even bother to tell me a story that may be attached to it. A simple "share it if you''re hard enough" was all I got out of him this time.
The connection I suppose is Miniatures 2020 which we are both contributing to and supposedly Glen is delivering a track we are still waiting for that to come in. Wavis' contribution is also slightly delayed but I am assured that it will be with us shortly.
You can check out the Wavis O'Shave story via his Felt Nowt website and you can keep abreast of what's happening with Miniatures 2020 by checking back to the website or signing up to our mailing list via the Falling A homepage
These pages represent my best attempt at a musical journal, travelogue, archive record of my musical landscape and everything I have been involved in over the years. It features celebrated projects to undeveloped ideas, sketchpad moments, memories and general stuff that has been part of my creative endeavours and the Falling A Records story. I am attempting to place things in chronological order though as time passes and I trawl the crates in my loft, I am discovering that my record keeping has been quite vague at times. Please feel free to interact and correct where necessary. The page also serves as the archive page for the website and is where we post our various announcements etc.,
