Long Time Gone Posted Sunday, August 9, 2009 by the_charade
Sorry for not submitting any news for a long time. This is partly because there isn't much to write about concerning The Charade for the moment. After three records in three years we needed a break. Hopefully there will be more music from us in the future. I'm recording an album with my old friend Joe from Australia and new friend Herb from Chicago. We call ourselves The Britannicas. I've written four songs for the project and they are a bit different to the ones I wrote with The Charade just to try out some new territory. Or maybe not? We'll launch a My Space page in a couple of weeks.
I'm sure Michael and I will come up with something soon.
