Tearing Me Apart: a new song from The Phoenix Fall

You may just have been indulging my paternal pride, but quite a lot of people seemed to like the first single released by The Phoenix Fall, the Leeds-based Indie band whose drummer is my son Charlie Dale.

The second single, Tearing Me Apart, was released this week when the Phoenix Fall headlined a gig at The Library in Leeds. My wife and I were there, used by now to being the oldest in the room by 30 years or so. Watch the video here:

Wearing my marketing hat, full marks to Ashley Karrell who made the video. Any of you minded to take up my suggestion that YouTube videos are a good way to promote business may care to get in touch with him. And you know where to look for a band for your Christmas parties.

I was able to use the title of the first single, What Really Matters to Me as an object lesson in what e-Disclosure / eDiscovery is all about. It tied in neatly with something HHJ Simon Brown QC once said about the purpose of disclosure:

What I want to know is this: what is the case about? Which of the pleaded issues really matter in getting to the heart of the dispute? Can we split the case up and limit disclosure to the subjects which matter, or which matter most?

Even I am pushed to find a useful e-Disclosure parallel for a title like Tearing Me Apart, although if you try explaining to Senior Master Whitaker that the Part 31.6 CPR definition of a “disclosable document” is the same as the pre-1999 concept of a “relevant document” you might fear momentarily that being torn apart would be a relatively painless fate.

Anyway, there is no point in having an audience which stretches from Melbourne to Manhattan and not use it to support the band. After all, they might support me one day.

On which subject, you can download Tearing Me Apart from Amazon or iTunes.
