Right… because I know I have better things to be doing, and I am the master of procrastination, I’ve started writing this. It’s a comprehensive-ish mini-history of The Automatic. I think it’s pretty accurate, at least as best as I can remember, there may be some chronological inaccuracies along the way.
I thought it would be a pretty good exercise, before I start to forget things. Having started this I’m starting to remember lots more stuff that we did and happened. So it’s probably going to be an expanding project. I’ve started from when I first met Rob, sorry if it’s all a bit mundane. So far I’ve got as far as the White Rabbit demo, though I’m aware I’ve skipped lots of bits that I’ll go back and fill in.
Also, eventually, I thought it would be good to give a proper explanations of some of the problems we had along the way too. Hopefully they’ll stop other people tripping over the same problems. We’ll see how it goes.
It’s also a Iwan eye view of things, a pretty narcissistic ego-stroking exercise, but if you’re interested have a read.
Let me know if you enjoy it and want more, or if you hate it and think I should shut up!
