News From Liverpool.

On Monday, I learned that a song of mine was put before the four panelists on BBC Merseyside's Jukebox Jury over the weekend ("Nowhere is Where She Belongs," for those of you keeping notes). The verdict was two very much for, none completely against, but the other two did not find the production appealing (the familiar "digital lacks warmth," argument). Overall, a good result in front of a panel that historically pulls no punches.

Band Name Update.

You might remember I had an idea to book my shows with Fred and Nick as "Goodhue, Dines, and Murnane." Well, it seems like everyone (press, bookers, friends, Fred and Nick themselves...) default to "Rick Murnane Band" no matter who I'm playing with, so we're going back to that. Simple is good.
