    Regarded by a kooka near an old gum tree with similar expression today. Not trying to make you home sick. Can you smell the eucalypts and hear the black cockatoos?

    Guess you did the Barcelona show a thousand years ago.
    yet you didn’t sound so happy while you were still yet on the road.

    bands still play on, and just like you firstly said.
    it doesn’t really matter if you’re still alive or dead.

    I have no heart to hurt anymore, my family is all gone.
    so fuck it now, I might as well, just sing my own sad song.

    Thanks for the great show last night! I was really
    happy you played Sealine, and Block was amazing. One of those
    hitting-your-stride moments I’d say… Only wish I
    could it play back a few times. Well worth the windy
    trip up to A-dam.

    Hope you all had a good time!

    After everything, now this…
    Shame on me, Cologne was my first Church concert ever.
    After listening to their music for about 30 years.
    I can’t help but realize that the band now is so on top of their game.
    The double guitar sound and everything, loud and brilliant are so… ROCK!
    The Magic worked that night at the Luxor Club.
    Steve – it sure was worth waiting in the rain TWICE that night.
    I’ll remember the funny moments and the kind words you shared with us before your departure to Paris.
    I’m Thomas, but you can keep calling me Dominic.

    In a universe governed by rules of quantum randomness, there’s a theoretical possibility that the band’s arrival in the U.K. will be met by the same frenzied mania that greeted the Beatles’ arrival in NY. Better prepare some witty comments for the crazed press conference just in case. 🙂

    Hey Steve,

    Is that Lou Lou on the new Volvo commercial – Julian? Great for the girls! If not, sue the crap out of Volvo.

    Seriously, the Lou Lou/ Volvo ad is played about 25 times a day on CNBC in the states. I hope the girls are getting their share. Tastefully done I might add…
