Looks like summer is here for a few days! Here is an update on the progress of the new Jadis album.


The recording is now 90% complete and the last drum session was completed a couple of weeks ago at Steve Christey's new studio - it's a relaxing environment and we got a great sound there.


Below is a video from the session which features the newest Jadis tune, 'Where Am I', written for the album. The song only has ’stunt’ words at the moment but the melody is in the right place. 


We know most of the deadlines for the release of the album have now passed but we can confidently say it will be available in September… this year!!!


Bye for now and thanks for your constant support








Hello to you all,


Myself and Martin Orford had yet another successful house gig last weekend. Once again with Paul Brewer as host, yet this time at his new and extensively renovated place in the quiet suburbs of Chandlers Ford. He has designed the downstairs area so that more house gigs can take place in the future - Francis Dunnery will be playing there on 3rd June.


We had a great turn out and played a one off set of more than 2 hours which comprised scaled down Jadis and IQ songs including some material from the forthcoming Jadis album and then we took it upon ourselves to play a few ‘very high risk’ cover versions including Camels (Ice), Yes (Wondrous Stories) Genesis (Ripples) then Carpet Crawlers and Solsbury Hill which we played using Acoustic Guitar and Cittern which is one of many of Martin’s medieval instruments which he has mastered. 


Martin also introduced the Hurdy Gurdy; It is a small fat Guitar looking instrument which makes a drone sound as a hand cranked rosined wheel ‘bow’s’ the Violin like strings. The action looks a bit like a bus conductors ticket machine circa. 1970 crossed with a mangle. It has a great sound and we managed to shoe horn a section of Spinal Taps ‘Stonehenge’ into the ‘Gurdy’ piece - It was a great evening.


The next Jadis studio album ‘No Fear of Looking Down’ is nearing completion which I’m very excited about and very happy with the tunes. Martin will be adding some of his unique keyboard parts and backing vocals to it as he has a higher range than me and our voice mix works well together. We are also going to print a limited vinyl version of the album.


More info. soon
Bye for now
