Loads has been going on...

...blimey, where does the punk rock time go?

Since the last post, we've played a further nine gigs and released a new demo CD.

Live appearances have been as follows: The Frog & Onion, Nottingham (21 April 2006); The Polish Centre (18 May); The Sumac Centre (9 June); Pride, Leicester (24 June); Pride, Nottingham (30 June); back to The Sumac Centre (8 September); back to The Old Crowne, Lincoln (4 November); back to The Frog & Onion, Nottingham (10 November); and a first appearance at The Rose of England, Nottingham (23 November). This makes 10 gigs in total in 2006 - Pointy Boss' most productive year for gigs so far...

A new demo CD More Toward Seven has just been released - three tracks are available for streaming (RealAudio) and download (MP3) on the Pointy Boss web site BiG THiNG POiNT.

Lincoln gig - 8 April 2006, The Old Crowne

Ahead of the 21 April gig at the Frog and Onion in Nottingham, Pointy Boss play The Old Crowne in Lincoln on Saturday 8 April, with Keith's side-project band Plastic Jack and Cutting Edge.

A gig at the Polish Centre in Nottingham is also shaping up for May - more details as things are confirmed. We've also approached Junktion 7 in Nottingham about a possible support slot with 999 in May, but have heard nothing back as yet...

Still, a fair few Pointy live outings are now in the offing :)

New studio session

Pointy Boss returned to Unit 5 Studios in Mansfield on Sunday 12 March, to record a stack of tracks for a new demo CD release - the first time that the Pointies have been in the studio with Shel behind the kit.

A mixture of old songs (like Nothing Here's For Sale), new numbers (like Runway) and tracks from Rich's past (including the Metro Youth classic H-Bomb) were all recorded in super-quick time.

A mixing session has been booked for early April, and the results should hit the streets (as they say) later that month.

The new CD is currently without a name. Suggestions please...

Keith. Riff-god.

The next Pointy live outing will be on Friday 21 April at The Frog and Onion in Forest Fields with The Tramadolls.

More details to follow as they are confirmed.

We're also planning for a return to the Unit 5 Studio in Mansfield in March for a further CD recording session - the first with Shel behind the kit.

Here's to a Pointy 2006!

All best wishes to our blog and BiG THiNG POiNT visitors for 2006!

The first Pointy Boss rehearsal after the festive break is tomorrow night, which will get us back into the swing of things, and give us the chance to map out our cunning plan for the year ahead...

There'll be a slight delay on the issuing of the See You Later CD, as we've a bit of a printing issue at the moment which is halting the production of the sleeves.

We hope to have this cracked soon, so that the demos can begin to fly from the production line.
