Thought it was odd that I used an American website to book a hotel in the hills of Leicester but if it saves me approx £4 on the prices listed on their UK site, I'm all for it. That's £4 towards a pint and a half of decent beer :)

Payment (donation) sent via PayPal literally 30 seconds ago.

Just need to book my hotel room as I don't want to be stone cold sober all day ;)
Andy, please can you add me to the list.

Here we have some pictures of our 'venue'. Please note though - if Gren has to be called away for whatever reason, the studio/mixing area itself will be locked. We will be using the rest of the area - including the rehearsal rooms for playing on systems. If gren is available and is around he will be more than happy to show one or two of you the studio, it is amazing to be honest! ;)

here we go then some pictures . . . including the logo for The Convolution Rooms . . .

Some news . . . looks like Gren is now performing at some gig . . . so the studio will be shut!
We will still be using the studio area but the studio itself will have to be locked up for security reasons.

We have the practice rooms and the lounge area that we will still be using - will still be okay! ;)

I will keep you informed if anything changes.

Some more news - if we have any Commodore 64 fans out there . . .
I have a friend on facebook . . . called Simon Nicol . . . who wrote a few C64 games, namely one of my favourites . . . Mega Apocalypse!
I have invited him to our special event and he has provisionally said yes but will let me know closer to the date.

Obviously this means a C64 will be set up with Mega Apocalypse running on it! ;)

Can do, be good to see I guess - see how good Simon is at his own game?
I will run it by him first - see what he thinks - in some ways it would just be good to have him there! :)
