The Long Weekend

After a prolonged pandemic absence from performing, Candi’s Dog returned to the stage at Harewood House last week.  With our last gig so far in the past we were a bit uneasy, wondering if we could still play (or if we ever could), but rather than dip our toes back in the water we wadedContinue reading “The Long Weekend”

A Light Has Gone Out

Autumn and early winter have seen Candi’s Dog touring around the UK promoting our new EP, A Light Has Gone Out (listen here).  It looks great in the diary, all these new places to visit, but when asked by a friend who was familiar with the town what I thought of Frome, Somerset, all IContinue reading “A Light Has Gone Out”

Review of 2016

It’s that time of year again; the time when we reflect on the ups and downs of the previous year.  You’ll notice Candi’s Dog have left it almost to the last minute, not the 12th December when Spotify gave me my music listening stats of 2016 or the tragically premature TV programme I watched beforeContinue reading “Review of 2016”

My Beautiful Launderette Gig

It’s been a few months since anyone reviewed a Candi’s Dog gig, so I thought I’d better do the job myself.  Obviously what you’re about to read will not be entirely balanced, but I’ll try to stay away from the ‘OMG THEY WERE SOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ end of things where I possibly can. A couple ofContinue reading “My Beautiful Launderette Gig”

Recording Again

Summer has seen Candi’s Dog back in the studio recording our new single and EP.  I say studio, I really mean Matthew’s shed and, believe me, there are few things less conducive to creativity than being trapped in a sweltering hot shed with two other sweaty people you already spend far too much time with. Continue reading “Recording Again”

I Think A Change Would Do You Good

I’m not proud of it, but on the occasions when I am bored and alone in the house I find myself reaching for the TV remote and searching for those channels I would never usually watch.  The ones with a slightly hazy picture, low production values and whose content is largely home makeover shows.  QuiteContinue reading “I Think A Change Would Do You Good”

New Adventures in Hi-Fi

I’ve often wished after watching a great film or reading a great book that I could wipe my memory and enjoy it with fresh eyes and ears, be surprised once again by the plot twists and shock endings and be left with that warm satisfied feeling all over again. Little did I realise that actuallyContinue reading “New Adventures in Hi-Fi”

I Couldn’t Ask For More

It’s strange when you finally decide it’s over; that enough is enough; you can do no more, a line has been drawn and you need to move on. Not the end of Candi’s Dog, of course, but of our recent recording sessions. The final mixes have been agreed on, artwork signed off and the wholeContinue reading “I Couldn’t Ask For More”
