Superheroes of Science live

Tonight is our first rehearsal for Superheroes of Science live. I've just a new tiny keyboard with lots of knobs to try and help us translate the multi instrumentalist leanings of the album. We're going to have plenty of hands on deck to deal with guitar type instruments, potentially banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, guitars, bass guitars but I can't help feeling that some synthetic squelches would really bring it all together. On top of that I've declared that:
a) we're going to try and perform a barbershop quartet version of Call Them X or;
b) we're going to find a barbershop quartet to do it for us.

Either way, I think we should attempt a tonight. I'll let you know how we get on. Meanwhile, for progress on our next album, check out

Well the rehearsal was a blast. We're getting together a lovely version of "There Is Science In This Child". Now we just need to start stitching together some Proton and Neutron suits for Peter and Nigel (Proton and Neutron respectively).

I think Peter and Nigel may steal the show actually. There is every chance they'll have a spin-off act if it goes as well as I think it might. We could be dealing with a children's entertainment monster here, of Biblical proportions.
