Hue And Cry Album Blog - Video Diary - Vocal Day 2 - Practice and Performance

Hi all

After the fun and chaos of the Glasgow Kiss weekend, back to creativity... Another few vocal days for me with the new album. This is a bit of a warts'n'all video - I'm showing you my daily routine leading up to singing, including my warm-ups, my sandwich buying for Greg and I, and our turn to Spotify for musical inspiration. Then two bare vocal performances of forthcoming tracks - Build It With The Hand And Heart, and Carlos Takes The Fall. 

Getting close to the…

Hue And Cry Album Studio Blog - Week 41

Hi all


Pat here again... Exciting day today for me - we begin the final vocals for "Hot Wire", our forthcoming studio album, in earnest. I remember something I once wrote about Remote in 1989 - something along the lines of, "my brother sets up a track like a set of comfortable cushions, upon which I perch and let fly". Greg's incredible taste and talent as a musician, producer and arranger gives me that experience every time I come in to sing . And today was no…

Album Studio Blog 2010 Week 39 - Pat's first one!

I'm taking over some of the duties of this weekly blog for a while - Greg is zooming in on the final few months of putting together the Hot Wire album. Don't worry, he's not disappearing, just delegating...

We did an interview for Scotland's no.1 tabloid The Daily Record this morning with John Dingwall, a very old colleague from way way way back in the day (this isn't the pic, but just to show you what he looks like).…

"Jute Mill Song (They Fairly Mak Ye Work)" - 'Piano & Voice' classic now on wall of Scottish Parliament!

Small moment of deep Scottish connection here, that has to be noted...

Greg and I once did a version of a song called The Jute Mill Song (They Fairly Mak' Ye Work), which we always thought that Micheal Marra (the great composer of Mother Glasgow) had written - he was the guy we heard performing it first.

But it turns out it was written by Mary Brooksbank, a Scottish communist-feminist - and… Continue

Friday Night Chat - damn'd technologie!

Hi all

UPDATE (Sat, Apr 14): Sorry about tech glitches everyone - it worked pretty well the last time on Ning, so we're going to inquire of them what the problem was. I think all your enthusiasm overloaded their system! Hopefully fixed for next week, when Greg will take on the conversation.

Putting Personal Photos on your "My Page"

Hi all

Have you ever wanted to put personal pictures on your My Page? Here's the right way!

Your My Page has both a "Photos" and a "Text Box" function. We know it seems a bit odd, but DON'T use the Photos function to upload personal photos to your page! .

We're using "Photos" for Hue And Cry-related images only - you can post those up. We won't approve personal photos uploaded through that function.

But please,… Continue
