PREVIOUSLY ON ‘THE DREAMING TREE’…
Formed in 2003/04 after playing covers and pretending to be a real band, Dan Jones joins Neil Ablard, Chris Buckler, Steve Barratt and Jim Peterson and TDT starts to write and demo original material. They played some gigs. They impressed some people. They ultimately recorded an album and got it released. From there they played more gigs. Nice radio people heard the music and played it. Nice festival organising people heard the music and asked them to play. Nice magazine review editors heard the music and wrote (mostly) nice things about it. TDT used all that and went and recorded and released another album, this time with acoustic instruments. Then they released another album, but this one had new songs and electric instruments on it.
Meanwhile, disaster and confusion were stalking the band. Well, not really, but Jim Peterson had a baby and was replaced by Neil Simpson. TDT ‘The Next Generation’ was launched, and started playing gigs. When we left our heroes, they had been cruelly imprisoned by an evil criminal mastermind who had locked them in a rehearsal room until they came up with yet another album!
NEXT ON ‘THE DREAMING TREE’…
Will the band be able to escape the fiendish trap set for them? Will they record new songs and release a new album? Does having two guitar amplifiers set to ’5.5′ really mean you’re playing at ’11′? Stay tuned for the next thrilling instalment of ‘The Dreaming Tree’!
