Hi guys, the band is no more so I'm starting from scratch again. It just happened and I am disappointed but we are moving on. The virus did not help but we can't claim that was the cause. Some good news is that I just uploaded a new song "Smell The Skunks"and you can download it free from N1M and ReverbNation. I played all the parts myself which I would much prefer not to have done but it had to be gotten out. This goes out for all my friends in Australia and in it there is a recognition of the sorrow so many went through due to the bush fires which were purposely set. Aproximately 180 people were charged with arson. I have to say it was fun to play bass and drums again. I figure there was no room for lead guitar but it has enough of me anyway. I hope you like it. It is not the final product but only bed tracks and I will be re-singing it and doing a final mix. These are MP3 files but I will be producing an album with no hiss using wave files. A vinyl record with pure analogue is also in the plans. The webcasting will pickup again and there are a lot more songs I want to write so maybe I can show you some live recording streams out of my studio. I am thinking about do the new vocal track soon and possibly doing it live on Facebook as well as a new mix as well. These drums are Dec 1970 Ludwigs and some of you drummers out there may recognize the sound. All the best and God bless. Ken WintleRead more

FINALLY, 9 pm EST we are going to greet the ones who have been waiting around the world, with some of our music. We are starting off with Facebook Live. What a learning curve and pile of work. To start with I will be fronting our basic 3 piece. Bass, drums and myself on electric guitar. Deter and Dean will be here but the 5 piece is not quite ready yet so I made a decision because it has taken so long and another delay does not fit my stubborn nature. I would like to have the 5 piece ready but it just isn't and besides, I fronted a 3 piece for many years and it is easier. We will add our page on YouTube as soon as we can, maybe next week (not sure). When we do, if we can get enough YouTube subscribers it will generate some revenues which will help. I am very anxious now and will be, you know, practice, practice and practice without getting sore fingers. Love Ken and thanks for your patience.Read more
Hi everyone. Things are very busy here. Lots of news and the latest is this. Yesterday morning a friend and bass player dropped by and officially joined KWIN so now we are five again. I have known Tom ( Mud) Arney for many years and played music with him many times. All five of us sing. Dean Carr is back. Dean is the singer on the two jam edits. He comes from just outside London England. Photos and announcements will soon be out. On the webcasting, web cams won't do because it is a big stage and deep so we are using new SONY video cameras. I am no good on tech stuff and have had to delegate all that. Our keyboard player, Dieter is also our tech guy and he tells me remote participation like the news shows use should work well. We are using new SONY video cameras with interfaces for video and sound, that's why it is webcasting not podcasting. I am told it will be 720 P at less than 10 MPS, broadcast quality. Live shows with other acts as well as KWIN. I am overdue on a news letter to subscribers and am tired and hate typing with one finger so will probably copy and paste some of this. Tom and all five of us will be here Friday, (tomorrow) for rehearsal. On the analogue recording our OTARI MX5050 8 track, it has been overhauled by Teletech in Toronto and they sell brand new tape (reels) which are only made in France these days. If anyone of you special fans needs the info, just message me. Hope you are all well. God bless, KenRead more
