SPRING SHOWS

by the eastern -       Sep 24, 2013

hey friends
If we saw you in port chalmers thanks for the dancin' and kindness and thanks for being cool to us, Don McGlashen and all the other walkers and talkers who hit the stage...a wonderful day in a great community! thanks...heres whats up for us next...
We were meant to have a new record out, but sometimes these things don't come easy. We want to make something good, something with some weight, with value, something that we hope you can get behind. We don't wanna hustle you, we want to make the best record we can. It's taking us longer than we hoped (or planned), but I promise we're getting there!...In the meantime sometimes it's good to shake out the self obsessin' and get the wheels rollin'. That's where it all makes sense for us...it makes sense with you!
So we've got a bunch of shows together so we can stretch our arms and the songs a little. We know in light of some of our other tour schedules this is a little light, but its a chance for us to shake a leg, tail feather whatever and then hustle back to port and keep chopping away at this big tree we call a record.
We're joined by some true fine souls for this run and we hope to see you and yours if and where you can...
Barry Saunders (The Warratahs)
Lindon Puffin
Reb Fountain
and Bond St Bridge
all make an appearance along the way!
there'll be a few more shows added over the next couple of weeks but if we don't make it to where you are, we PROMISE you we will from the first half of next year onwards, for what is shaping up to be the biggest tour of our lives...phew!...
in the meantime
