Nice Things To Do (Gonna Be Good)

In Dual Robot, Simon's Blog by Simon Townshend7 Comments

Hi Folks

I should have posted a version of this 3 weeks ago, then you would have been more involved in the progression to this stage…. though I dare say it has some way to go yet, it has grown in a big way since conception. For those who aren’t aware, this is an old song and for that reason I don’t want to spend any more time working on it right now – I’m really happy with it where its at and now I need to move on (though I reckon there’s a fab acoustic mix in there, for sure).

I really hope you enjoy it. I’ve put a lot of heart and hard work into it. Also, my old mate Mark Brzezicki came and added some great percussion today. Added a whole new dimension. All I need now is a movie to go with it. Haha.

Hot off the press (text)…. Looks like I’ll be performing, I’m The Answer with Ed at his London Apollo gig tomorrow (later today)…. How fucking cool is that!

See you as soon as.

  1. i had a feeling this was on Scraps how wonderful great new version sir, absolutely amazing.

  2. Excellent! Reviving a song from the “Scraps” heap! Thanks to you and Mark for bringing back this dark song. Kick ass with Ed, it should be great!

  3. Gonna Be Good, sure is a bloody good song Simon.
    Good to have you back too and you old pal Brz.
    Hope the London Apollo went good.

  4. Check. I want it all. A powerful car on an empty motorway, et al. – Your evolving man. Now go produce that film you! – Break a leg at Eddie’s gig. Wish I’d be there. – This one is good in a deep, dark grinding coming down through the gears sort of way. It’s like, you can’t miss. Thanks for making MY day. Cheers.
