Fanatics! I am Australia bound. At this moment, I am in Wellington, New Zealand with show #60 for the year a few hours behind me. I will be in Australia for quite a long spell for shows and press. As always, I am looking forward to it. I have been in NZ for a few days and the shows have been great. So glad to be back onstage every night. It' hard to take time off in the middle of a tour but last week with Ian was certainly worth it.

I am extremely happy with the line up with have for you here. There are some Australian greats peppered throughout the show to pay tribute to the mighty OZ. We again visit the great Eddy Current song "It's All Square" as we did last week -- it's a great one and Ian and I were on the same wavelength.

There's not a bad one in the bunch and I think you're going to dig it. I am hoping for some good luck at the record stores in Australia and will let you know if I pick up anything of interest. I am already working on some upcoming shows for later in May and I think you will dig what's coming. New Snail and new Pepi Ginsberg tracks that are really strong as well as some other great things that I think you are going to dig.

We have a great show coming up for you next week. It will be Iggy's birthday, so we are going to be all Iggy, all show. Don't miss this one!

Listen like you mean it and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
