Drummer Wanted!

As much as I dislike abuse of blogs in this way, I need to put this out there.

No Redemption and Thornleaf need a drummer to fill a gap left due to differences.

Will need to have own transport and kit (obviously!) and be local to the band, so Stoke-on-Trent area. Sorry, international fans 🙂

You can contact me on facebook or twitter, or drop a message on the pages linked above.

If you’re not a master of the sticks, please pass this on to someone you know if you think they can fill the slot.

Thank you in advance.


A Long Break

Apologies for the long break, but I’ve been planning. Or plotting. Your choice.

I am hereby committing to at least a weekly post. If this does not happen, you can post a comment with your contact details so that I can give you my address to be kicked in the shins.

That’s a pretty big incentive for me, I’ll tell you.

Not to say that only one a week is enough. But it’s a minimum.

Oh, and why not watch this video whilst you’re here? 😉


Ghostly Goings On at The Vic

I’ve heard the stories, seen pictures and even videos like the one below. Nothing prepares someone for a real life experience of a haunting, however.

Those who know me may be aware of my own ‘house guest’, but he seems more Casper than creepy.

Let me start with this video, shot during some background scene filming for The Hollow:

This is after tales of vigils with strange sounds not unlike a grunting, clothing being moved, cold, and a general feeling of spookiness.

Scroll forward to last week, where No Redemption were rehearsing and some friends who were visiting for Hallowe’en were listening. They managed to capture some footage of a boy dancing, possibly the same one as above, and stills of other possible spectres.

So, this evening upped the game. Around 8:40 p.m., the temperature really dropped and the grunt was heard following James Earnshaw around. As well as the general temperature, ‘cold spots’ appeared and even moved with the band.

James had an idea to record the sound, given that the equipment was there. This was a massive success and we located a subsonic noise that had us all baffled as to the cause. Whilst analysing the recordings, we decided to fill the room with the smoke machine and could see disturbances caused that seemed as though an entity of some sort had moved through it. I want to make it clear that there were no natural draughts and the smoke moved as though forced in a particular way.

A general sense of unease remained and I’ve protected my home tonight before writing this.

The Victoria Hotel in Stoke has a history of strange events and this is another one to add to the list. Hoping to do another vigil there for further evidence, but why not pop down yourself and see what you think firsthand?


Talent, Talent, Everywhere…

If you’ve ever thought that life would be simpler with one easy to use website with some of the UK’s top talent, then your wish has been granted.

From the musical stylings of No Redemption and Wes Dolan to the acting skills of Melanie Denholme and Rudy Barrow, you’ll find a great wealth of the country’s hottest rising stars at ‘A Great Act‘.

With profiles, pictures, videos and news all in one convenient place, there’s something for everyone.

Oh, and yours truly 😉

No Redemption – Dying Day

On a similar theme to the last post, here is No Redemption‘s video for the Philip Gardiner film, One Hour To Die.

A fantastic addition to the growing collection, this is a video well worth a view.

Warning: some scenes contain blood.


No Redemption Website Update

Thanks to the efforts of Philip Gardiner (previous), http://www.noredemptionuk.com/ has undergone a very sweet facelift.

I could go on about the pictures, videos, biographies and such… but it’s much better to see it for yourself.
