Tour report
Thursday, 23 December 2004

Joe had a great time on his solo tour. His sisters came to the Sheffield Grapes. Joe, Chris T-T and Thomas Truax almost got arrested by the S. Yorks Police the next day after parking outside a bank which had had it’s ATM tampered with (Chris even had to show the DI the last 2 photos in his digital camera).

The tour party stayed 2 days in Hull, Chris and Joe playing the Monday open mic at the Adelphi the night after their gig, with Bod from Fonda 500 taking Kate’s place to duet with Joe on Blanket TV. He also picked up a copy of "One Man And His Bog" the book commemorating 20 years of The Adelphi and it’s legendary proprietor Paul Jackson. The Leeds crowd were small but perfectly formed and Joe made arrangements with Russell from The Research for them to play at Blang in February. The Cumberland Arms in Newcastle was a great homely pub with an Irish session downstairs and the touring trio supporting a blistering and amusing set from Ballboy upstairs.

They then drove through the wee small hours to Edinburgh to crash at the SL Records HQ, making use of Nick Ballboy’s room while he was touring. The Edinburgh show was in a disused Methodist chapel above the Forest Café and Joe enjoyed playing Here Come The Popes (Part 1) there (a new song cataloguing papal corruption up to the 10th century). Earlier in the day he played it at an in-store session at Avalanche Records.

The final gig for Joe was at Dr Drake’s in Aberdeen, a venue now with a place in his heart next to the Hull Adelphi. In the early hours of the morning messrs Buzfuz and Truax could be seen doing the conga with the venue’s crowd and jiving to Benny Hill tunes. Joe wants to get the band at some of these venues next year. Watch this space!

April update
Thursday, 22 April 2004

Joe and Kate are playing 2 or 3 songs at the Brixton Windmill on Sunday with The Rebel and others, see Gigs.
New (and last ever) May edition of The Face has a half page feature on Blang Canvas with some hilariously inaccurate text (Blang is a monthly event at the Tate with lots of mariachi jazz) and luvverly fotos of acts and audience. Do you know people who shimmy down to Blang know you are called "Blangers"?
