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”

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”

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”

Candi’s Cat

Regular readers of this blog will know that we try to use it to give more detailed answers to questions we are asked at gigs. One of the more unusual questions was ‘Do you own dogs, then?’ This one we were not prepared for. Indeed, it would never have occurred to me to ask ifContinue reading “Candi’s Cat”

Must Be Funny, In A Rich Man’s World

“Who writes your songs?” we are often asked at gigs. “We share songwriting credits between us” is the simple answer and sometimes this is enough. Sometimes not though and we are then asked, “but who actually writes your songs”. OK, so I’ll tell you, but first a cautionary tale. In our last blog I gaveContinue reading “Must Be Funny, In A Rich Man’s World”

Money, Money, Money

With the close of the financial year looming, I will soon be mired in the tedium of working out how much we have earned from our music. My feelings on completion of this task can be summed up in two questions: “Is that all we earned?” “Why do we even bother?” I’m reminded of aContinue reading “Money, Money, Money”

Matthew’s Mid-Month Moustache Memorandum

Matthew has been at this Movember thing for half a month now and, I must say, he has surpassed my very low expectations of his development. I had thought that seeing his moustache would require a Rosetta-like craft landing on his upper lip and beaming back close up pictures, but here it is visible toContinue reading “Matthew’s Mid-Month Moustache Memorandum”

Goodbye Jack

After our recent gig with R.J. Thompson we were interviewed by Dawn of Record Overplayed. Buoyed up by what we felt was a very successful gig, we had the exuberance of a four year old after a two litre bottle of Coke and a similar level of articulation. Editing that half hour of nonsense intoContinue reading “Goodbye Jack”

Attempted Moustache

As we discussed in our very first blog, the Candi’s Dog audience more often than not want to talk about anything but the music, with the ‘freaky twin thing’ and the ‘bizarre hair growing out of a man’s face thing’ neck and (hairy) neck in the attention stakes. This situation was harmonious while it lastedContinue reading “Attempted Moustache”

Doggy Style

When one sets out to write, whether it be for a novel, newspaper article or blog, the age old advice of ‘writing about what you know’ is worth keeping in mind. In this blog however, I am casting such caution to the wind by writing about a topic I know nothing about: Fashion. This isContinue reading “Doggy Style”
