Hello SageHeads and BlogSpammers -
I really have nothing very sage to offer today. It's hot. I'm a fog baby.
I wish the Blog Spammers would just plain leave us alone. What do they hope to gain by sending ridiculous messages that make no sense? Is there something I am missing? I got excited for a minute because I thought someone was actually reading and commenting on our blog... when I figured out how to drill down to get to the comments I discovered a bunch of gobbledy-gook... lots and lots of it. Please go away. Thank you.
I can't really complain about anything else, though. Last week we played at Roxx on Main in Martinez for the first time and had a great time. I mourn the loss of Armando's, but it seems to have seeded a thriving music scene throughout downtown Martinez.
Which brings to mind the time Henry and I were taking the train to Reno and it stopped in Martinez... they let everyone off for a few minutes; but I don't know what kind of clock they were using as it seemed more like 1 minute. Too bad we were 2 minutes away from our car, having walked the length of the train before the "get back on right now" horn blew. Who knew we could both actually run? Still, the door closed right in our face and the train started to move... then it stopped and they let us on, and made great sport of us later on as we calmed our nerves in the club car. I think they did it on purpose.
We've resumed recording our next album, which now has a name, "The Human Condition". I think the songs and the title are a logical follow up to "The Nature of Things". This week we had the pleasure of working at SoundWire studio with David Phillips as he poured pedal steel fairy dust all over us. We also both went down to the Groove Room and lent a few notes to Deb Grabien and SoundField's next CD; it's an honor to work with such a talented songwriter, plus the studio had some powerful air conditioning which was most welcome by that little old fog baby, me.
Our next gig is this coming Sunday, September 11. That horrendous date over twenty years ago still cries out for healing and we will try to bring some with us to San Gregorio Store, 3 to 6 pm.
Peace and Love,
