howdy folks,
just wrapped up the "april flower" tour with a glorious bang down in new haven. couldn't have felt a more golden way to send good ol' mick back to his home comforts. long may we jam. comin' up in the next few weeks are some one off shows all offering a diff perspex on our sound world.

friday april 22nd...issue project room/brooklyn, NY
i was asked to do a specific type of set in line with my qbico releases for a special series of events curated by "sagittarius A-star" i put together a band with erika/rongoose/willie lane and hopefully doc dunn if his pedal steel playing wizardry isn't too much of a threat to our security. we'll be doing two pieces, the raga based "environments" and somethin' i loosely call "the beginning of the game", which is an homage to early 70's peter green. it could also easily be called "gameboy paintball", come on out and dig for yrself in the tapers pit...bottoms up.

monday april del popolo/montreal, quebec
intimate trio show MV/EE/MUSKOX...presented by popcorn youth, suoni per il popolo and the great radio station CKUT. we couldn't be more psyched!

sunday may 1st...feeding tube records/northampton, MA
triple bill with the "family underground", a rare stateside appearance from this awe-insp unit outta copenhagen along with the pioneer valley future folkie "crystalline roses". cookin' some unique MV & EE action up as i type. hope to see ya in due course.

howdy fellow golden roadies,
we just finished up the sequential circuit of the "april flower" tour, good times g-o-o-d times! had some groovy guests sittin' in at various shows - jeremy earl / harmonica dan / chris corsano / willie lane and we got a sweet pan of gold on the tapes to prove it. gonna be quite a spring harvest, lets bring it on. another possible tape box? HIGH-light LP? lovelight nice price heroines? all of the above? vote in accordingly. do it!
what we did for the tour was produce a promo only heroine that we gave away to select heads who were giving good vibe around the merch table. we call it ALT H/C...and it is a hardcore alternate version of the woodsist LP. mick and i compiled it from various shows with the core group of valentine/elder/flower along with john "mo'low" moloney, andy ramsay, doc dunn and the doozer makin' the scene on some jams. same tracks and sequence as the "home comfort" disc but with DEEP cuts culled from totally different sources. last chance to grip this version will be tomorrow nite, april 15th, in new haven where we'll be playin' popeyes garage on a bill with the flower-corsano duo. it will be our only full on electric set of the tour, quartet with mo'low on drums. don't miss it folks, don't miss it.
if you can't be at the gig in the corporeal sense, drop a line and we'll work somethin' out.
peace ∞
