Fish told us that he is definitely
happy with the format! Loving
it! In fact, it sounds like the writing and recording of the new album may well be put back for a while as a result.
This is good news and bad news I guess. Bad news because we will have to wait longer for a collection of new material and the resulting full-band electric tour. Good news because if he extends the current acoustic tour (as it sounds like he would like to) then more of us will get the opportunity to see him in a small, intimate venue near to home. Or for some of us, another
chance to see him under such circumstances!
He seems to feel that he is just not ready yet to put his full heart and soul into a new album, and that a full-on electric tour would be too much as well. Events of the last year must have left his heid fu' o' chocolate frogs (again) and the current tour, with its short spells on the road interspersed with time at home, is clearly allowing him to get his head together and think about priorities in the medium to longer term.
I think he deserves this thinking time don't you?
When he's ready, we all know that he will produce another great album in his own style - which is obviously something to look forward too!
But he is such a professional that he wouldn't rush into something until he is happy that he could do it justice. Another
reason why being a Fish fan is such a satisfying existence!
This is all my opinion of course! I have not become his official biographer overnight!
