Tour Report (sort of)

JW WowB:W

Just a brief report on the tour so far. I mostly hate musicians blogs about their shows because they are as boring as wallpaper. In an era when even news is mainly fallacious entertainment, there is absolutely no excuse for dull writing. Our shows started in the NL, mainly in the provinces. We’ve added Tony’s guitar to our live set up and as I refuse to rehearse enough, it all took a little time to settle down. As well as being a fine musician and experienced professional, Tony’s affable ‘geordie’ nature enabled him to deal with my flouncing impatience!
The tour has been building momentum show by show – Well… I would say that wouldn’t I?! But it happens to be true. Most pleasing for me is the fact that there have been so many young people in the audience. WE ARE NOT AN OLDIES BAND! There are so many miserable, cynical old sods out there pedalling nostalgia in second gear. I’m an optimistic old git who wants to spread the love to everyone, young or old. There you go, that last sentence has made my tour manager Gerrit happy. (Somebody has to keep an eye on the things I write.)
Germany has always been friendly to me… I don’t know why. I reckon it must be because I put a ‘c’ in Fischer.
BUY THE VINYL SUPER SINGLE! BUY THE T-SHIRTS! COME AND SEE US PLAY!
(Was that OK Gerrit?)
Special congratulations for Eric, our artistic/technical wizard, for his birthday on tour.
He doesn’t drink and fortunately he didn’t notice the acid we put in his vegan salad.

Abbruzzo – A break

Down here in Italy there is a remarkable contrast between hot days in the fields and a view which includes snow on the mountains. I have been resting down here for a while with a friend who is on a mission to prune his 54 olive trees. It would be extremely useful if I could speak Italian. I’m looking forward to returning recharged to finish the build up to the tour.
