Friends Reunited

The Hit List decide that black is the new...er...black

When you reach a certain point in your career in this business we call show, one’s obligations tend to fragment into different projects, be it either by accident or design.  This leads to a number of things, confusion being but one of them.  One week, you might be performing reggae in a solo show, the next, an in-your-face punk bash with a bunch of undesirables, followed by a pop extravaganza in post-communist Russia, it’s all very eclectic and enjoyable of course, but on occasion, leads to one being  gored on the horns of a dilemma.  Dates clash, and obligations are compromised. What to do?  Well, the same lengthy, well-networked and varied career that got you into this mess can also be your saviour. You call up old mates and arrange a “dep”. A dep, for the purposes of this article, is a reliable, musically proficient, and most importantly, play-by-the-seat-of-your-pants former musical cohort who you would bet the farm on.

And so it came to pass that an upcoming show in Scarborough, UK  required us to find a dep for both Mike on guitar and Pete on drums, both of whom had unavoidable prior commitments.  Within a few hours the services of Dave Sargent and Simon Kay were secured, and voila, it was basically my old band THE HIT LIST performing together again!

I’m extremely lucky to have a job that gives me a chance to catch up with my old mates and get paid for it at the same time!   Check out how THE HIT LIST used to sound in the sidebar of this blog.

    Haha.. how very 90’s.. very ‘Take That’! :p I could hardly recognise you there!
    Thats great to know you enjoy it and plus a true musician is one who can experiment with music, like how you’ve mentioned reggae, pop and then I know your primary genre is rock.. good going!

  2. thanks Saj. sometimes I’m so versatile, i confuse myself!

    I am rediscovering your blog. You sound like Santana with a twist right there at the right.

  4. Nice to see you here, Yolanda! Yes, Dave, our guitarist in the hIT list really nailed Santana’s guitar style on that one.

    Hey Kev, looking forward to the gig mate. Be good to catch up in a week or so’s time 🙂

    Dave

  6. Likewise, mate!
