Ive added some great new songs to my show as get back and are getting calls and interest from all over the coast. Ive also invested in a great light show including a DMX light control unit.  I also got a spinning pin spot and a smoke machine a laser and another larger floor LED flood panel. The laser isnt in action yet as i didnt knwo you needed a cut out switch to make the unit active but thats currently in the post!! We have sat down and looked at the unit and had it fully functional but need to learn how to program scenes and chases which is the next step and then we have to learn lisa this.. but we have a few weeks before we really need to take the full light rig. Im booked through january and into february but the calls come every day so please any bars / hotels or people wanting to play there parties please make sure you get in contact well in advance id hate to disapoint. I also have been gigging with my rock and roll band the twisters! we are three pice band – upright bass player and drummer and banging out a load of great catchy rock and roll tunes!  Keep a eye out for me as GET BACK or WAYNE PAUL WARD or THE TWISTERS on around the costa del sol.

Tech Time!…

Really enjoying the samsung note 8 its really moving mobile phones into the computer line. Im pretty stock with it and im just waiting for a dax and ubuntu for samsung note 8 installer … but hey thats another blog when i get my hands on it …

in a word presenting > ANTERGOS


I decided to switch from ubuntu after really they make big offerings and pull them and make to big changes for me. After buying a ubuntu tablet and a ubuntu phone for me and lisa and them just drop  them after a year was pushing it.. then they just pull unity and replace it with gnome just like that!.. i was pissed when they pulled ubuntu one but carried on. They just gone to far for something thats just not that great. I looked for a new system thats kick ass and geared towards gnome and i found antergos. Antergos is a arch based distro without the half day of setting up the arch system…

Ive been there done that wore the t-shirt running gentoo. The system sets up what i consider to be one of the most solid, responsive and versatile linux system ive used to date, bearing in mind i was there at the beggining! i tried antergos in a virtualbox and was planning on using it for a week maybe… a hour lated id made a bootable usb and installed from the live usb which pulls the latest installer and installs the latest version from the internet with all the packages you need !! steam.. office and you get to pick the desktop you want to run! awesome – as you can see i went with gnome! After running and trying it our for a day i could this was the one a proceded to setup my main computer / server and this went great as well! i did notice that gnome file share doesnt work out of the box which ive had a moan about on the forums but any way i followed this tutorial … ohh and i must say reboot after doing all this or it doesnt work – look here

A few things about antergos its rapid and can see the difference compared to ubuntu in speed and bloat … take it this way on the ubuntu xps laptop with ubuntu loaded the fans just run all the time red hot.. since antergos the machine is like new and havent heard the fans! and one other differnce of course is no apt-get install packagename !! i now get pacman -S packagename   nothing to hard about that!!! take a look at the OS its amazing!

We are still selling craft ale with craft on the coast – we mainly sell 3 monos and la catarina but have other beers in stock check out our website which is also growing database of craft ale bars in the costa del sol! http://craftonthecoast.es/

Any way we offer you peace and love for 2018 – and hope. If you have anger please replace this with happiness and love. You get one chance at this life. Again peace, love and hope.

Wayne Paul Ward, My Music

Ive taken 6 /7 months out from the band to get all my own stuff down so please take some time to follow me and listen to my work.

wayne ward

my own material that ive been writing for a few years now just come to light and im writing now better than before, i play all the instruments on my tracks, including acoustic, guitar, bass, vocals, cajon and backing vocals. and its a mixed bag of goods and like to keep my vocal transparent.








here is my sound cloud…


here is some work in progress

yup still working through the songs im just giving the songs identity i guess, everybody has there own way of writing, now ive been co-writing with matt for around 18 years, when it comes to writing yourself its a different kettle of fish! im plodding through and getting better all the time, ive a nice hendrix fueled tune on the horizon that kicks pure ass.. so keep a watch on the blog for updates, ive started self teaching the drums thats going well so i should be putting drum tracks down soon!! its all quiet exciting stuff! also im planning on testing out two of my own a the open mic night when i get song two finished ill go and give them a go! any way here is a couple i wrote, the first one i brought back to life from 1992 and im just re-jigging and the second one i wrote in 2013 which i prefer to be honest all though its only one verse as it stands ….soundcloud_fluid




music update

i made a harsh decision to break away from managing bands im playing with as ive been doing it for to long now and realised the only person that suffers from this is myself. I have no problem with any of my bands ive just decided im moving myself forward musically and as a person. Although i still will play with the bands and still be available for any gigs im just not involved in getting gigs, setting up rehearsals, setting up recordings and finding band member replacements for when other members cant attend. I admit i take on to much and ok I create the bands but i can see my bands have sufficient people in the bands to manage these tasks taking the as what i can only express as depressing and soul destroying tasks. I must note i have no intentions of leaving any bands or not being available and would not wish any out quarrels or silly fall outs from this im just moving my own music career forward gracefully 🙂

I did my first night were i fronted the band last night and thoroughly enjoyed having the choice of what to sing and just basically fronting the show infact i dont know why ive never done it before! i think its the move to guitar it gives me more scope and more space to rip into it and show some stage presence. Ive set up my own sound cloud and reverbnation as ive started writing my own songs for your pleasure! im going to put music to the ten songs i have from when i went through my bad times a couple ago and i was levelling! the songs are deep and the lyrics are well thought! ill update ill my new songs to my blog aswell as reverbnation and soundcloud and on here aswell. A good mate of mine said keep the faith and i believe thats true. Im now unleashed so watch this space, old lightning here went to drove into kendal last night to show the cats some new tricks. Take a listen yer its a rough live recording but listen to the music thats all that matters. Me on guitar / slide guitar and vocals – frank on drums, steve on bass and my pal barry on the harmonica. Have to say i really enjoyed it and its great playing to a crowd who love and appreciate music. peace out folks
