AS A COLD WIND BLOWS UP A LATE SPOT OF WINTER,
MOMO UNVEILS SOME HOT NEWS ABOUT FUN STUFF.
And so there it goes. The toughest month of the year – January. Twenty-twelve is really on, people.
Actually, this first day of February is really where the new year feels like it’s starting, here at Momo. An absence of pithy pointlessness on Lingo so far this year is down to one thing: puh-lanning. Which sounds buh-oring and certainly doesn’t seem to produce much actual content other than reams of scribbled-on A2 paper. But February is where the planning has put first Actual Things To Do in the diary for us.
Things that stand a half-decent chance of adding up to something rather fun for Momo amigos. Namely, a whole New Tunes-a-rama publicity-ma-bob brand re-boof.
Which is a good thing. Just to be clear.
Because we can finally tell you when you can next see Momo live. And because we’ll be unveiling a brand new single on the night.
Yep. That’s what the schedule tells me. And it should know. It looks like some bloke spent a bit of time badly drawing it on a big layout pad, so it must be sound.
EASTER SATURDAY 7th APRIL 2012,
SIXTY MILLION POSTCARDS, BOURNEMOUTH.
THE RETURN OF THE MOMO:TEMPO ELECTRO-POPS ORCHESTRA.
Better believe it. Featuring the full seven-piece line up, we’ll be unveiling the first of the new promo brand gubbins for Momo;tempo, ahead of the forthcoming new album launch – from which we’ll be debuting the new single and letting you grab a free mix of it right then and there, if you bring your smart pocket telephone.
We’ll be tickling around Momotempo.co.uk in time for the night too, and giving more details about a release date for the new album.
..Looks like I’d better get a shufty on, eh.
Ahead of all this, I’ll be pre-empting the funny business with a first short series of iPhone flicks on the Momo The You Tube channel – showing behind-the-scenes clips of said new single actually being developed. Really. From first arrangement to different musician sessions, I’ll share a little of the unqualified tinkering and posturing that goes into a Momo tune.
I shared the scratch mixes of new material with someone other than the lovely first lady of Momo for the first time a couple of nights ago. Mark The Drum. I wouldn’t want to go into the details of a private hour between two chaps, you understand, but we did both emerge from the studio fairly light-headed from a goodly dose of OMG. I now have an ally in the excited stakes.
And so also, I can say that the first session of this brave new year of musical creativity is in the diary too. I believe another enthusiastic professional will be turning up on my door with two massive congas on Monday, expecting to flam them for me. How could a chap wait patiently for that, I ask you. Momo’s percussionist, Simon, already sounds as enthusiastic even before he’s heard anything. Let’s see if he feels the same way afterwards, obviously.
My schedule is telling me I have a measurable ton of work and casually brilliant creativity ahead of me. My gut is telling me it’s going to be a blast.
