    Thanks for the mention.
    Bantaba X is still going strong. We have a new female drummer, and she is fantastic. We are spending “time” writing new material at the moment.

    Sadly, my blogging days took a tumble when my wife and I decided to set up our business and MOMO’s time eaters got to us…

    How is life treating you?

    Life at the moment reminds me of “some” of Pink Floyd’s lyrois from “Time”:


    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought I’d something more to say

    Home, home again
    I like to be here when I can
    When I come home cold and tired
    It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire
    Far away, across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spell

    • Definitely one of my favorite Pink Floyd tunes… I’m doing really well. Can’t believe it’s been a year since I posted on my blog. Gonna have to change that! Really good to hear from you, Phil. Nice to hear that things are good (and busy) for you! Peace.
