i never know what im gonna write
till i write it!
even that!
and even that!
whatta life this olde hippy foole be leading..
im sittin up in bed naked
(under a sheet so dont let yer imaginations
runnaway with ya)
all around the deafening roar of machines
air conditioners
vacuum cleaners
machines out in the street
pulverizing tenderizing the ungiving ashfelt
guys on the roofs busting up concrete
garbage trucks gasping n grunting
chimneys n exhausts exude poison air in a filthy hiss
fuck
i need the equatorial stars
the ipod goes on in its little speakers
robert fripps snake like guitar leaps into my room
enos ambiences merges with the symphony of new yorks machines
im on the 11th floor of the super 8 46 th street
its 10 41 the next day after the band im in
play a concert in a nice venue here called irving plaza
we have la hood join us, patricia hood
the greatest rocknroll harpist pluckin those heavenly strings
get your ass to s.f. if you wanna see her
cos thatll be yer last chance
shes a consummate performer
shes armenian, she coulda looked like that
and played like that 2000 years ago
you know what i mean fans
a timelessly talented strange little woman
and
she ironed my pants n sewed em up before the shows
patti thank you n see you in s.f.
(i noted your mistakes n yer pay will be deducted accordingly)
outside my window some hideously grinding machine
burrows into something
and it feels like getting a filling
big deal new york
with all yer this n fuckin’ that
you got no peace
i d rather a peaceful grove and the whisper of leaves
than all yer discount starbucked calvin klein art gallery
limousine boutique baloney
the noise pervades n permeates everywhere
the poor bastards who are working those hellish machines
strapped all day to fume belchin’ shudderin’ monster
this world has gone so wrong
so wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong
yesterdays events with the aeroplanes…
ah what fucking madness is this
which god ordered that?
who will this show?
sadness
hopelessness
inexorable hatred flowering from idiot misunderstanding
what about the innocents?
the children?
are we less than animals?
anyway
(deep breath)
(listen to the machines nevets, theyll cheer ya up)
im in new york
its ok
i dont care
im leaving soon for sellersville
unknown quantity
the others attended last nite aftershow party
nevets, why did you eschew that party
you know why, muse, that party is anathema to me
but nevets, its new york…
muse, i cannot insult you with the idle chatter n drunken bawling
i did my gig n i exited quietly
let others slap their backs n scream thru the booze n smoke
into their egos
let em laugh n drink n be mary for all i care
i walk the lonely streets of ny searching for my hotel
i go in a late nite deli n buy chocolate soy milk
oh nevets you wild olde rocker
mock me not o my muse this is my style
what do i care for the talk of men
i seek the heart n the depth of things
i seek the measure
i seek the real behind the facade
not mask after mask
veneer on veneer
then tell them nevets
tell them how you played your songs
tell them of the words that appear in your head
how your fingers pluck away autonomously
how the great weight of the bass becomes a feather
how you heat up and sweat gallons as the songs eventuate
tell them how the audience blurs
and your eyes fill with sweat but you dont care
and tell them how you drink red bull n jagermeister
to stop n go at the same time
and how you remember all those words
no you dont remember them do you
they unravel in my mouth, muse
you should know darling muse you put them all there for me
and my muse shall i tell them of the anaesthetic place
i go when the drums throb n the c ymbals crassh
and how i leave the room and leave this earth
and my only connexion is tim powles tic tic tic
on the hi hat
and how the piano notes open up memories that i fall into
how the guitars get into my ears n mouth
how my own bass registers low low down
so deep the notes pull me into the earth again
and how i opened my throat and my voice came sailing out
and i sounded just like…….me!
and i was happy to let it float around in that room
in the reverb n echo n delay n chorus
and the slurs n stops n mute palm ostinato
the slides the emphases the hammers the restraints
n pattis harp twinkling away in the stratosphere
a million miles from the elastic pulse of the bass
and i sing my fucking songs
about life
sweet sweet life
how strange this life is
this life we all be leading
YES
right now
you guys in the office
you kindergarten mums
you olde friends
you hungover wretches
you junk craving lords
you mixing it up engineeers
you sweet ladies with yer mysterious places
you ugly olde bastards with yer blubbery bellies
you darling kids who can still see the elementals
(aurora n evie)
you mountain climbers n window washers
you public savants n idiot winds
all of ya!
yer alive!!
sweet sweet life baby
love yer life
love other people
love yer enemies…yeah theres a trip
forgive people
theyre just human
be kind to animals
dont eat any meat under any circumstances whatsoever
you wanna know how i can strap onna bass n runnaround
a hot stage n drive 8 hours at 5 in the morning
and still get up at 7 and say
what the fuck is happening
and type out a blogg that deserves the ignoble prize
for littyrature
you wanna know where the words n music n energy comes from?
FROM NOT EATING MEAT!!!!!!!
you ready for it
you wanna vibrate higher?
you wanna transcend?
you wanna knock off songs in yer sleep?
dont eat meat
new york stinks of the cooking meat
ah you poor decadent fools
itsa gonna kill ya baby
its dead
do you ever look at something dead and think
mmm i wanna play around with that?
anyway
you carnivorous vultures…back to n.y.
it was nigh on solde out
we were slick n smooth
we gave em it with both accoustic barrels
and we blue those mothers away
we are one of the best rocknroll combos ever
to strum an f maj 7
im gonna piss off now
do some something
have a tepid weak shower
wash last nites charisma off my aching flesh
look my self in the mirror
nevets, are you man or myth?
this morning, muse
this morning…
im just a washed up olde rocker
in a skinny hotel
the maids a bangin at the door
“please you musta check out”
frippy n eno drone in the corner
another day
another dollar
another dollop of life
see ya in penisylvania

    The problem with the World is also the Blessing we were Given – Free Will. Ya wouldn’t want That Which Is tellin’ ya what to do with that Gift, would ya? We can’t have it all – we live in the realm of Man who perverts that Gift (uintentionally and intentionally). That’s Truth – regardless what we wish/want to see.

    steve, i had sincerely hoped that you would be able to get some much-needed rest while in noo yawk, even if it was just a tiny bit. i’m sorry you didn’t.

    if anybody ever has a doubt of how you transcend onto a different plant of existence while playing, all they have to do is just watch you up there on stage!! of course, i’ve been on that plane for the 20+ years i’ve been enjoying your music 😉

    yes, life IS strange, isn’t it??? have a good show, and get some rest, ok?

    what you describe–the way you feel (or don’t feel) when the music is moving through you–with your lady bass stretching in your hands–reminds me of the movie chariots of fire (yeah, i’m pretty old)–when the minister is running toward the finish line and he cranes his head toward the sky for the feeling of god’s (or godess’s) pleasure moving through him–such is the exaltation we know in moments that matter–in any case, what you wrote was beautiful–cheers

The world’s a little wacky, but it’s still ours, it’s still beautiful, despite some of its guises, or inhabitants for that matter. May we all go about in kindness in the search for ourselves. Oh, yeah, EVERYONE, please remember to leave your “oh so-dangerous” hair gels and H20, or pack it in your checked baggage…another Not-so-truthful inconvenience I suppose. Also, Steve, no I-pods, laptops etc. bound for Britain (if you have any such plans)…alrighty then!

    Glad to hear this leg of the tour has been going so well. Keep it up, I’m gonna see you in Chicago. Also, try to have fun in Indianapolis, who knows what the show will be like, but me dad and sis are coming so donae dissappoint ’em! I’m sure it will be fabulous. I would go, but I had this bright idea to plan a vacation before I knew when you were playin the midwest. So I’m off to the shores of Lake Michigan for some camping and relaxing while you rock nearby. I’m just barely gonna make it back for the Chicago gig, but wouldn’t miss it. Oh, and I just got the remasters of Starfish and P=A and they sound great, awesome to have all the rarities in one place now too.

    nevets,
    Your description of how you lose yourself in the music reminds me of Abraham Maslow’s description of the ‘top of triangle'(self-actualisation) or Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s theory of ‘flow’ – or even sports figures when they talk about being in the ‘zone.’ I’m there myself when I listen to you guys. It’s a great place to be.

    Geez, did they put you in the noisiest place in NYC or what? I mean, it’s a noisy city but damn! Sorry you seemed to only get the uglies from it – it does have supreme charm and beauty IMHO.

    I know yer all questioned out – but one to ponder for the road (literally)…I understand your stance on humans not eating meat, but what indeed do you think of nature’s cycle – producers/competitors/decomposers…animals eating animals, animals eating meat…cats and dogs can’t live without it really…do you believe we are of higher mind so we have a choice and they don’t? And yet they seem to need it to survive. Just a thought I had. (I am 90% vegetarian for ther record – only breaking down occasionally at this point, haha)

    Rock on nevets- oh! STOP running that NEGATIVE tape in your head…’washed up olde rocker’ – every time you type that out or think it, it bothers me, and it is NOT YOU! Replace it with ‘perpetually elegant, tanned, healthy, highly talented musician with endless creativity.’ It’s long, but it’s better for you. 🙂
    over and out,

    John Garrett, it’s from the Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death, wherein a crazy dude is doing a speech in the park, going on about eating meat being bad, and that’s one of his rhymes.

    Now, vegetarianism is serious business. I’m assuming it will keep me looking forever 32.

    Food for thought

    Vegetarianism: Supported in the Bible

    The Bible has many quotations against meat-eating as can be seen from the following: “But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it.” (Genesis 9.4-5) Certainly we can see in this verse that no one was meant to live by eating the flesh and blood of others. If one did so, then he would have to pay with his own blood, as it says, “your blood of your lives will I require.” This is merely a reference to the law of karma: for every animal who suffers because of you, you will also similarly suffer: “at the hand of every beast will I require it.”
    “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? Saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of goats. When ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear, for your hands are full of blood.” (Isaiah 1.11,15)

    “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. (Leviticus 3.17). . . And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of strangers who sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set My face against that soul that eateth blood.” (Leviticus 17.10)

    From these verses and others not included here, we can certainly see that God’s law, as set down in the Bible, was against the eating of flesh and blood and the killing of other entities. However, there are some people who try to legitimize the eating of meat by draining the blood and, thus, make the meat “kosher.” Of course, this idea doesn’t really work. Blood permeates meat, so how can one be free from eating blood by trying to drain it from the flesh? This is not very realistic, and it certainly does not free one from the violence that must be inflicted on the animal when it is killed in order to eat its flesh. The real point of the matter is not to kill. This is clearly stated in Exodus (20.13) in the Hebrew lo tirtzach, which, when accurately translated, means “thou shalt not kill.”

    In fact, the Bible compares the killing of cows to murdering a man: “He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man.” (Isaiah 66.3)

    There are a few verses, however, which I am sure some students of the Bible will reach for that seem to support the eating of flesh. But in every case, this is due to inaccurate translations as we shall see.

    For example, in John (4.8) it states: “For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.” The word meat was taken from the Greek word trophe, which actually means nourishment. This is exactly the same case in Acts (9.19): “And when he had received meat, he was strengthened.” When translated accurately it means that by receiving nourishment, he felt stronger.

    In Luke (8.55) we find, “And her spirit came again and she arose straightaway: and he (Jesus) commanded to give her meat.” The word meat in this case was translated from the Greek word phago, which translated correctly simply means to eat.

    In I Corinthians (8.8) it states: “But meat commendeth us not to God, for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither if we eat not, are we the worse.” The word for meat here is broma, which actually means food. Therefore, this verse signifies that eating or not eating food has little to do with our relationship to God and not, as some people think, that eating meat holds no wrong.

    In Romans (14.20-21) the verses are: “For meat destroy not the word of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.” The word for meat here is broma, which actually means foods, and the word for flesh is kreas, which does mean flesh. Therefore, this verse makes it clear that flesh eating is unacceptable.

    If the Bible explains that eating meat is wrong, then what is the proper thing to eat? Genesis (1.29) clearly states: “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” This makes it quite obvious that the food for human beings is herbs, seeds, grains, and fruits.

    We also find in Isaiah (7.14-15): “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.” The first verse is often quoted by Christians for proof that Jesus was the savior, but the next verse shows that he will be a vegetarian to know the difference between right and wrong.

    As mentioned earlier, meat-eating is a sign of spiritual ignorance and tends to keep one from developing compassion and mercy towards our fellow living entities. To be merciful only to man and yet be an enemy to animals by killing and eating them is Satan’s philosophy. One will never live in true harmony with God while performing such activities. This is often overlooked by the Christians, Muslims, and others. If these verses were actually understood and the meaning fully realized and practically applied by the Christians and others, I am sure it would bring beneficial reactions the world over in their spiritual development. After all, one of the ten commandments specifically says thou shalt not kill. It does not say merely thou shalt not murder, which would imply only humans, but it says “Thou shalt not kill,” meaning any living being.

    Such a fantastic blogg only to beruined once again by your vegan banter. Leve it out. I’m having yummy baked lamb loin chops for tea loadsa mint sauce.

    I was married to a vegan once. Her tempeh burgers bored me senseless even though she worked hard to make em tasty. the tofu was like eatin’ unset putty.

    Your vegan life is such a borin’ one I feel. Leave us carnivors to die with a smile..

    Ciao & happy touring

    Pagey, what makes you think the Bible has any authority and/or influence over the way that anyone with a brain will make decisions about whether or not they eat meat?

    Cute, Alehc, er Chela! I’m not used to reading backwards, but it’s a very smart way to read indeed. I was always the girl who had to ask the questions and here is another one I just have to ask but not before I clarify this: I have my own set of beliefs regarding meat eating and I believe everyone has a right to consume whatever they damn well please (meat or otherwise). So here’s my question: If someone is vegetarian or vegan because they don’t want to inflict harm upon animals, then how is it they inflict harm upon themselves and consume certain chemical substances? It just doesn’t make sense to me. Spare the animals but harm yourself. Raw! Raw! Raw! Seems a bit fallacious to me.

    Love your blogs, loved the concert in Dallas and loved meeting you, MWP & SK. I can honestly say that the band’s material today is better than it was 20 years ago and the old work was a gold standard. You guys are not yet at your prime. Thank all of you for letting me experience what its like to wake up in the morning throughout the day.

    You being in New York reminds me of May 27, 2003, the last time I was there. I attended a big premiere celebration for Led Zeppelin’s “DVD”. I took MWP with me cause i knew he liked the Zep. At the party afterward, I introduced Pagey to Piper. It was a great, thrilling moment to see two of my favorite guitarists finally meet and have a chat. In the late 80’s I sent Rhyme to Jimmy and he loved it.

    Don’t worry Steve, I’ve got big plans for you, too. Herman’s Hermits are reuniting, and it’s you and me and Peter Noone curving a stretch limo around the block. Woo-hooo!!

    jasta north o the Ferndale gig

    The lace-curtained café has been serving its carefully crafted vegetarian dishes for many years. Chef-proprietor George Vutetakis believes in market fresh produce, organic whenever possible. The menu has ethnic twists, reflecting Vutetakis’ interest in Indian, Japanese, Mexican and Greek fare. He lived in India for a time and has also visited the Island of Crete, and both countries have influenced his cuisine, which focuses on flavor as well as nutrition. House bread is a sturdy whole wheat, there are whole wheat crusts on the pizzas and even whole wheat phyllo dough on such dishes as butternut-leek pie. The menu is augmented with daily specials, which are recommended highly. They might include Peruvian blue potato cakes with Michigan pear chutney. There is a long list of non-alcoholic beverages, including fruit smoothies and cider.

    out of my mouth, every sentence is quickly followed by a trail of nonsense:

    the moment, the music, the un-descriptiveness of it all – all my attempts to interact in this world, to perceive, to feel, to know – this is my life – my fate:

    this moment of light and night, of eternal revelation and illusions:

    am the fool or the alchemist? heightening senses and blurring reflexes until each moment of control and expectation is forsaken and every moment is un-distinguishable from the next:

    Am i awake? Am I aware? do i see the world with new eyes? What choices do i make? Why do I make the choices i do?

    I am confronted, in one form or another, by these mysteries at every step of my turn. i break them like bread. i drink them like wine:

    i expect nothing and everything from them, never and always at the same time:

    I must confront myself, everyone and everything i know, believe in or perceive to be.

    DISAPPOINTED to say the least with last night’s show. We fucking paid $30/ea. to listen to what sounded like the Grateful Dead mashed with Los Lobos? Where were the songs? Where was the stellar guitar interplay? I’m sorry you had to listen to the rude prick who kept yelling “Bel Air”, but was that the reason we were punished with a – seriously – flamenco version of “Metropolis”? What in hell were you thinking?

    Sorry if the old songs “bore” you, but most of us who live in suburban America have never gotten to see your band live, despite buying your records (both band and solo) over the past 20 odd years – and I don’t recall ever hearing the fucking harmonica on any of my Church albums…

    The lovely old theater was the perfect place to create some real atmosphere, and you should have blown us away and left us wanting more – instead, half of my crowd actually fell asleep, and the theater was only half full at the end of the show.

    Your band is absurdly talented. Your voice sounded better than ever. The stage banter was entertaining, but that doesn’t make up for the lack of tunes. Rob Dickinson got it right by giving us some old favorites mixed in with new songs. Seriously, would it have killed you to give us a few more gems besides “Under the Milky Way”?

    CSTCoach | 13 August 2006 at 4:31 am #

    Just returned home from last night’s gig in Sellersville, PA, and I have to say that I was ready to drive another 6 hours from Ottawa, Canada to see it all over again.

    First off, Rob Dickinson played an energetic opener of rocking guitar and full-on vocals. I picked up his CD Fresh Wine for the Horses on the recommendation of some folks on here, and played it several times on the drive home. I wasn’t familiar with his Catherine Wheel stuff, but I aim to become familiar very soon.

    I must admit that, having never seen The Church live despite 20 years of obsessive listening (from the age of 15!) I was a little disappointed to hear they’d be acoustic this time and not full-on electric. I knew I’d enjoy it regardless, but I do want to catch their legendary show in full force.

    Being acoustic I expected something more sedate and introspective, something like Steve’s Acoustic and Intimate CD from KH. I couldn’t have been more wrong. They blew the fucking roof off the joint! I could hardly believe that an acoustic show could rock like that! How many guitar strings did they sacrifice to produce such energy and such force? Throughout the show they kept telling the soundman to crank it up. By the end it seemed that the building was held up by solid walls of sound. The magic was palpable – you could reach out and grab handfuls.

    The venue was a wonderful old theatre. It was big enough to contain a crowd, yet narrow enough to feel intimate. Of course, row 3 seating added to that ;-). The downside of the setting was that the theatre seating made one feel like a spectator rather than a participant, which I think accounted for the somewhat sedateness of the crowd during the first half of the show. However, the upside was that there were no talkers, at least in my section (and so I didn’t have to follow through on my promise to choke anyone out). The audience was quiet but attentive, hanging off the edges of their seats – the repeated standing ovations at the end and after the two encores said it all.

    The set list was the same as that posted for other shows on this tour. They came out strong and built the atmosphere with Block, and then a beautiful rendition of All I Know that had my girlfriend quietly wiping the tears from her eyes (she wasn’t really a Church fan despite repeated forced listenings – until last night. Now she finally understands what I’m always on about). Next, Marty shredded up such a storm in the middle bit of Grind that the deafening applause stopped the show. The band even thought the song was over until Peter reminded them to play the second half.

    That would have been the grand finale for most bands, but these guys were just getting started! I’m still amazed at how they built and built the energy long past the point of what I thought was possibility. It just kept going, shredding louder and faster, reaching deeper and deeper, to that point of absolute transcendence and beyond. The two encores went nova, really.

    It would be too much to give a play by play – Peter’s beautiful piano and vocals on A New Season, the intelligent, witty banter between songs, the instrument swapping (these guys are ridiculously talented)… and I was very pleased to hear Marty and Steve sing Two Places at Once, one of my favourite Church songs. These guys played for 2 ½ nonstop hours. I don’t know where they get the energy! When he came out for the second encore Steve looked out to the crowd and asked if it was okay to play one more. He was talking to the theatre manager. They played right up until they closed the joint.

    There were so many great songs, so many amazing moments. I was particularly impressed with how they cranked up Invisible in the encore. It’s such a quiet song, but they rocked it up and shredded it! It was amazing.

    After the show I noticed a few hardcore Churchies hanging around by the stage. I leaned on a wall until the guys came out to sign stuff. Steve was gracious and friendly, signing loads of stuff though he looked tired as hell (who wouldn’t be after a performance like that!!). I bumped into one fellow from the blog and his lady (I’m sorry, I didn’t catch your login name, but heard you were a regular) who were getting some old vinyl covers signed, so the fiends were well represented in Sellersville.

    My girlfriend and I really enjoyed chatting with Peter about Japan and music and things historical/anthropological. And the highlight of the night was of course a conversation with Steve, a man whose work I admire and respect. He was gracious enough to pose for pictures with Tomoko and I (druid, I’ll work on that expedition plan and line up a plush one – I can always create a position for “team bard” or something…) I’m not sure if I was making any sense, I hadn’t quite de-tranced, my mind was still in that other place where the music took it. The show really floored me, and it showed. There were so many clever things I wanted to say, so many songs and moments and projects I wanted to mention. I guess it’ll have to wait till next time.

    I envy those headed to the rest of the shows on this tour. Be sure to check out the merch table, and get there early! I picked up a great SK print, the new Noctorum album (great!!), PK’s From The Well, a couple t-shirts, Tin Mine… There’s loads of cool stuff!

    My only critique of the entire show regards the price. $30 per ticket is far too little! You guys should honestly double it. I wouldn’t blink at paying more, even with the gas and hotel and all that thrown in (and my bags of Church merch!). Rob’s one hour set plus 2 ½ nonstop Church is worth far, far more.

    Thanks, guys, for an incredible evening. You transcended, and brought us along with you. It was everything we could have possibly asked for, and more.

    I have no moral problems with meat at this particular point. That might change or not. I just noticed that left to my own devices, I gradually ate less and less and less of it when alone, finally down to just fish. Not even that now. I feel cleaner. I feel lighter. I again enjoy other meatless dishes I had put by the wayside, because you can only eat so much at a sitting. It’s all subjective, I suppose. I just know I feel better. And I don’t worry so much about what’s in anything. You pass some really nice steamed seafood dish under my nose, a little lime juice and I might fall from grace. I’m okay with that too. Just get back on the horse, no pun intended. After Maine lobster and Alaskan halibut, I got kinda spoiled. It, too, tasted “clean.” To me. I just am curious on how my phys training will work when I switch out all the high-protein meal plans (they accomodated me and gave me choices that were all from the water) for stuff like soy protein powder and tofu and so forth. I need to check on that. Soon.

    My motto over the past couple of years, when asked, was “veg as I *can* be.” Kinda hard in a house where barbecued ribs, pulled pork, grilled brats, etc. are the favored food. You offend people who spend so much time on perfecting their meat dishes when you decline them. And food, as I say, is criminal to waste. Not in like…stuffing yourself silly. As in the folk who would be happy with the things you waste carelessly as well-fed Americans. At one point my trainer wanted me to eat five times a day and I was annoyed. ANNOYED. Only in the Western world. Smack to the head for that!

    Preach on Mr. K. It will benefit those who wanna try. I notice no hyper-transcendent qualites coming out in me. But it’s enough just to feel less…physically dense. I remember the day when a double-bacon-cheeseburger was satisfying. Then later, after my fix, usually sorry.

    Preach on.

    Hello Steve,

    You’re worst than any drug I’ve ever taken. I’m still coming down and its almost two days.

    btw, did you mean that my presence is larger than life or there more of me to love? ha.ha. It was the presence, right? Guess I should have worn vertical stripes. btw, I had some smoke with me that I totally forgot to mention to you when we spoke.

    btw, I just completed a review you all might be interested in reading on the Sellersville show (see below).

    (my user name is ChaoticAmnesia. The title is “Re: It’s All About The Pantaloons”)

    What a great time. A great little venue. In fact, I purposely got lost on the way back the next day and took some of the most gorgeous back roads, listening to my new purchase of the Refo:mation. there really is some beautiful country in PA.

    I was feeling quite melancholy the next day on the way home. It was the last of the shows for me to see.

    I met some really fine people at the show. Baal and Zeus (brief but sweet), the sisters from Scranton (good conversation at the bar and the show. Very sweet), the englishman and his girl-friend (that’s devotion), Pat, the camera maven (keep in touch) & the band. Actually, the first time I talked to PK in a while. A really nice fellow (I thought the piano sounded just fine Peter). Tim (you are an asset to the movement) And, of course you Steve. I really enjoy talking to you. Good luck up North. I know you’ll knock them dead.
