Venus Resurfaces

Off the Radar again

I’ve been kind of quiet on this blog for a while. That’s mainly because I’ve been out of internet range for most of last year and this until a couple of weeks ago, in the Chiapas region of Mexico with the Zapatista rebels, staying as their ‘guest.’

I’ll tell you that story another time – still working it through. It did make me think though about another time I disappeared off the radar completely, in the late Eighties. Here’s that tale…

Las Vegas

I’d pretty much given up on my agent when I called in that time. To be fair, I suppose, it’s hard to arrange much for a travelling musician who lives in a Dormobile and leaves no forwarding address.

‘I’m glad you got in touch,’ Fran said. I pictured her in that office of hers in L.A., in back of the mall where the rental stays low. ‘Have you ever been to Las Vegas?’

The gig was a three month residency: after that, she said, ‘we’ll see how we go.’ I should have smelled a rat from the start, but hey, money wasn’t exactly flowing into the coffers, and, this being late November, the cold was starting to bite my toes in Minnesota, where I’d fetched up at that point.

So I said, ‘sure, why not?’

I'm a writer, performer and musician living in Glenrothes, Fife in the lowlands of Scotland. My novel, Thw Wrong Box, is due out shortly from Thunderpoint Publishing. My solo album, Songs in a Scottish accent, is also likely to be completed later this year. The two bands I play in, Tribute to Venus Carmichael and Isaac Brutal and the Brutalists, also have albums in the works.
