When we sat down to write this it was quite hard to pinpoint exactly
what's happened since March.
We took some time to distance ourselves from the songs
and the set and came back to everything in April with new songs and
ideas and with a stronger conviction than ever that what we're doing is
What we're doing is so right that your grandchildren
will ask you about The Beckett and you'll be able to answer with pride,
that you were there.
The CD has been doing the rounds and there's only a
handful left now. We've had interest from some radio stations and
magazines you'll never have heard of and some you will have. And the BBC
have been in touch!
What does or doesn't develop from these leads is not
as important right now as the extra confidence it's given us in our
material, our abilities and our potential. With a little luck and a few
Beckettes, who knows what can happen.
For those that didn't know, we have a mini-tour of
Cornwall booked for the first couple of weeks in August and a few
warm-up London dates planned for the end of July. Keep an eye out here
for details as they're confirmed.
As for the rest of the year - we're taking everything
one step at a time. August will mark the return to regular gigging for
The Beckett, the winter may or may not see some more studio time, the
new year may or may not see another invitation only gig to showcase new
material. One thing is for certain though; the songs keep coming, and
The Beckett keep improving their unique brand of Modern Jangly Rock
The Beckett are David Prestwich, Emlyn Hall, George Georgiou, Mark
Brimson and Mark Wardle. This has been a Sunday Session Production.
