Seize the day - the naked truth! Oh, yurimasae, what are you marrying into?

Current mood: mischievous

Conversation with yurimasae last night. She seemed to have been dodging the subject of the band recently, and rebelfilms and I feared the worst; but there is a simple explanantion. She feels self conscious about her guitaring ability, and wants to take lessons. She goes to gigs and sees local bands playing really well,and she fears going up there and looking like a klutz. All is well. Phew!

starring totnesmartin.  when we werebeing silly in between song rehearsals for our punk band the_celandines  I hope this works, this is the first attempt to use video on photobucket.  I understand that youll needs flash to play the video..


The Taiko Casio, is so called because it was performed on a Casio keyboard. 

Information on traditional Taiko, can be found at http://www.drumdojo.com/world/taiko.htm


Celandining last night at last!

Satellites don't lie - ace!
Rumours of the flood - also good, somehow.
Resistance is useless - of course.
Today I ate an endangered species - also of course
Italy - WTF!!!!!

Nice to be back back back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11:40AM - Spring flowers

Martin - Am gonna text you in a mo, but theres too much to say in a text message so this is the long version...
Basically, I told Mum we would be rehearsing on Wednesday - and she basically got really stressed, she has said no celandining here for a bit, she is "fed up with people in general" and doesnt want to come home to find a houseful of people - translation: she is in hermit mode, hardcore.

This Wednesday and next, I cant come up to Totnes: this week I cant afford it again in one week, if I had known beforehand, I would have made yesterdays trip on Wednesday so we can celandine, and then next Wednesday I am Jessoping, then we have the moot. After that, depending on if its convenient for Ricky and Lou, and for you, I could combine the weekly Totnes trip with Celanding at yours? The other option is to ask Lou if we can Celandine at hers at some point.........

Just to announce that from Sept 2006, I will be a student at Dartington College Of Art. (and note, I shall still be in the Celandines!)

Last night: Moi, elven_ranger  and yurimasae  together at last: Resistance is useless! And of course, a few others: It Doesn't Matter, Xerox, Receipt, Cardboard Man (oh yes) and a new song, It's a Fast Fast World. Finally decided, despite encouragement from  Y, that I am no guitar player, and so I'll teach R my guitar part on Xerox (she can teach me the casio part) and concentrate on the electronics. we have enough leads but need one or two more inputs. We really must put some money into getting a mixer. R's yamaha through the sampler is ace.


Where is Ricky?

Current mood: creative

The Celandines are on Google page one!



Tune hunting with elven_ranger  last night. We nearly got one on "For Stepping" (AKA Nuclear Sun - filmsy always calls the songs by their first lines), and a couple of other ones were good too. Also: chav-ing up "Tradition" from Fiddler on the Roof. Also also: eating chocolates and prigles at the same time. It's nice. Honest guv. Filmsy found a ghosty noise on her yamaha, so we did "Poltergeist". And I forgot the System of a Down CD AGAIN!!! But where is Ricky?

Current mood: weird

Saturday, November 5, 2005


Meetup last night... me, Ricky and elven_ranger . A chaotic run through of our stuff; things can only get better. Ricky mentioned a posible gig for next year. But it's at the British Legion! And what's his idea about doing covers? Did I start this to do Sheryl Crow numbers? Noooooo... but I don't want to shoot down the new guy. Bizarre conversation about the location of a man's g-spot ( a man stopped me in the street and asked me if I knew...wtf!!!!)

I wonder how Ricky's doing with that tape?


Current mood: confused

Monday, October 10, 2005


Well it looks as if we have a bass player. Welcome, Ricky! Sorry about the fait accompli, yurimasae !

Tomorrow Rebelfilms and I pick it up again. Finally.

Current mood: relaxed

10:55PM - The Volts Show

I just found your band and i work for this UK radio show for unsigned music called 40,000 Volts....and i was wondering if you guys would be interested in getting some radio airplay? If you guys send a demo of your stuff to us, we'll play it on the show! Don't know whether you'd be interested in it.....but if you are...send your demos [could you send two if possible, one for us and one to pass on to our review site, www.voltcase.tk] to...

The Volts Show, 3 Maes Gwyn, Aberdulais, Neath, W.Glam, S.Wales, SA10 8LD.

If you could also send a copy of the form on the Contact page of www.thevoltsshow.com, it's a Permission To Play form, just to make sure you guys are ok with the show playing your stuff. (By the way, ignore the address on the form, that's the old Volts Show HQ, just send it along with the demo)

Sign up to our mailing list at www.thevoltsshow.com, and if possible could you give us a link on your own website in return for airplay and a link on ours, would be much appreciated! Thanks!

If you'd like an interview or a session, just email jordan@thevoltsshow.com and they'll sort it out for you. But to let you know, you guys MUST be in our playlist for us to set you up with a session/interview, so be sure to send a demo down to us first!

Alternatively, you can leave a note at the top of the PTP form letting us know if you'd like a session/interview!

Hope you guys are interested!!

Shell xx

Right then hopefully stuff is starting to get organised. Including my English.

I'm currently working on some new songs. That is, celandinising some old lyrics.

Rebelfilms is waiting for a phone call from a posible bass player.

Yurimasae now has her own flat, but no computer. And the local library won't let her onto livejournal, in case someone says "bum" or "poo" on it.

Current mood: bored

Celandines update

Rehearsals have been on hold but are planed to re-commence pretty soon. Lou is still in the band,and we might be getting a new member if they fit in with the group....

Sunday, August 28, 2005


A helmet is in fact a head shoe and by that rationale your skull is your internal head shoe. its like wearing your shoe inside your foot. They do not teach you that a helmet is a head shoe or that a shoe is a foot helmet.. Why do they not teach you this?

Hi everyone sorry for the delay. various personal things have interfered with the band. However Rebelfilms and i have started some new songs:


The danger of us doing "Motorbike Song" appears to have passed.

Yurimasae will be back from France on the 14th so things should be up and running again after that.

Current mood: creative

Yay, for any rehearsals at mine, we may not need to lug Lou's amp around- I have figured out how to hook the guitar thru the mic socket on my cinema. Theres another mic socket on there so we should be able to hook something else in as well...... :)
