news  -  June 2009

congratulations to Johan, who's finished the final year of his IT course, and has just found out that  he got a 1st!!!  a fabulous result, tho no surprise to those who've been following Johan's dedication to computers over the years, from the early days of Mario up to his almost total immersion in World of Warcraft lol -- hopefully, with his degree out of the way he'll be spending more time on his music

plans are continuing for Caned to play some gigs later this year, but after such a lengthy break it looks like quite a few rehearsals will be needed -- although Aaron happily took over on bass when Rob left the band, he's now thinking whether it might be better for him to focus on keyboards and vocals, in which case a new bass player will need to be recruited

and finally, we now have a photo of  Jim Grayham,  Caned Unable's long serving sound engineer -- it's a great pic, well worth the wait
