So heres what happened , Myself , Ryan Keen , Dan Dare , Billy Battenburg and Bena Woods made our way from Rectory road in london on sunday….all the way to the south of france .
(we are all working on new stuff at the moment…and we’ve all been working together in one way or another…and Quiksilver have built the most incredible studio in Napali so we thought we should all go over… write some tunes …and have some fun…..and .BY GUM DID WE !!! )
And what a brilliant journey it was(did not feel like 10 hours at all )…. bena was helping me learn my theory ( im learning to drive dont you know ) dan was spicing it up in the front with cheif driver Ryan keen and tobes was just being tobes:) ….and on the way they…we got on this train car train….and it was a train….that had loads of cars on it….and it took us to france , WELL…i was just simply amazed. technology these days. incredible …..and the before you know it….. were in france.
Rocked up at this really futuristic service station…..it really was quite fantastic ..infact..it was that amazing…ryan took his shirt off and bought an ice lolly.
then before you know it….after hours of laughing and listening to his song over n over again http://youtu.be/FJt7gNi3Nr4 …we arrive at the Boardriders house in hossegor.
we are all pretty tired at this point but buzzin to be at there.
and then to make it even better..the lovely emily woods arrives <3
so we unload some stuff out of the van….show everybody to there rooms…and just then…sit down.
then little ryan keen comes over….and tells us that he has locked his keys in the boot of the car.
im not gonna go into detail about how difficult this made his life for 2 days……but …let me just say….it was a bit of a blag.
top n bottom of it though is….he managed to get the keys…and a new windscreen.
anyway….so after that massive hiccup….we all decided to get some gin and tonics…and have a jam in the quik house library. so much fun and laughs….heres a little video of us
the next day …we make our way to the studio…. and for the next 4 days…..we all had the best time….making music together /on our own .
im finding it quite hard to write down how much of a great time we had….because it was that good..and plus…im so bad at writing blogs
I always say this when i got to hossegor…but i really do think it was my favorite time there…. just because i was making music in one of my favorite places in the world …and im so proud of the song that came out of it ….im gonna stop typing now cos ….im just blabbing on.
so im just gonna post some pictures up of me and my friends having a really good time
