Red Letter Day formed in 1984 and roamed the earth for 24 years.
Always with me on vocals and Daryn on drums, I hope its fair to say that each incarnation had it's highlights.
We released eight singles and six albums, toured the UK and Europe, had our records played on Radio 1 and recorded a session for the legendary John Peel.
Played with many of my favourite bands.
Never realised my aim of doing the band fulltime but not for the want of trying!
I stopped in 2008 as for me the effort and grief was outweighing creativity and fun.
I often thought I had unfinished business and it was the first covid lockdown that got me revisiting my lyric book in 2020.
I soon spoke to Daryn about making a new album, original guitarist, Davie, was signed up!
Lisa had got in touch with me about playing bass but tragically died in December of that year.
Cue Mickey to recreate the line-up from 1987 that recorded the 'Take Me In Your Arms' single, a favourite of Janice Longs.
We recorded 'Sacred Planet' in five enjoyable bite sized chunks over about eighteen months from November 2021 to April 2023.
Mission accomplished but the beat goes on.... Ade, September 2023
