And of course, they're skipping St. Louis. I think they've played here twice in 35 years, and the last time they were here it was at the sound-swallowing, asphyxiating, soul-destroying tar pit the Ready Room. I was 25 feet from the stage and it sounded like I was listening to them on an intercom at the bottom of a well in the next county.

But that could just be the heat stroke talking. That show was the only time in my life I can remember walking outside to 91 degree heat at 11 pm and breathing a sigh of relief at how cool and refreshing it felt.

Holy Toledo! They're coming to my town! Guess I'd better go. I saw the "Starfish" tour [w/ Tom Verlaine/Peter Murphy - what a triple bill!] 29 years ago but have not had the pleasure since.

They were terrific at SXSW a couple of years ago. You can even watch that show hhere. Which is interesting - I was there and don't remember seeing any cameras. Glad they captured it, though.

I see they are playing the 9:30 in DC. I saw them ages ago in Portland, and it was not a great show - they had sound problems. But I was less informed of their work and back catalogue then than I am now; would be willing to check them out again.

I'll miss their Seattle show. I'll be on vacation when they're here.

If you can't go to church because your on vacation, the CHURCH will come to you. Just leave message with the band where your gonna be. The old bondi beach blokes signed up for the 'endless summer' tour that includes two dates in fla. I'm nearly speechless, all can hurl up is,

You bloody rippers!

Not bloody likely, mate. (Wow, I can't believe I typed that. What a perpetrator.) I'll be in the UK, the first half of September. I'm also booked for a visit back to CO in October, but before I get there, the boys will have their tour dates wrapped up.

For those that miss out, the doco "Something Quite Peculiar: The Life and Time of Steve Kilbey" is about to screen at the Melbourne Film Festival so it should be making its way to you folks sometime soon.

Here's the trailer for that.

I'd still like to read his book. It was never released over here and I could never quite bring myself to pay the extra money for an import.

Ah, man! I hadn't even noticed that the Helio Sequence is opening for them on this tour. Now I'm even grouchier about how badly St. Louis sucks.
