Fanatic! In Adelaide, Australia. Soundcheck is soon. Just flew in from Alice Springs. It was my first time there.

I have been hitting the record stores since last week. Melbourne has some great ones. Next time you are there, check Vicious Sloth, Strangeworld and Greville Street. I found amazing stuff in all three. We will be working the tracks into our December shows. Hopefully, the tracks will send you to the internet to find more of the music of all these bands. I got so many records by bands I have never heard of, it’s going to take me weeks to get myself organized to put the songs into the shows. I will get it together over the next few weeks while I do the shows in USA.

Upcoming Events

I have four more shows here and then onto South Africa and from there, Road Manager Ward and I head to Florida to start to the North American shows.

We hope you have been enjoying the shows we have set out for you so far this September. I have to get to the venue. The show we have lined up for you here is another two hours of great jams.

Play it twice and STAY FANATIC!!!
