    can't wait to play in italy again - my ma's people are from italy and also, dante is from florence in particular (though they exiled him, damn). here's the tour schedule, I leave in five days:


    I'm gonna do one more tour of "the
    secondman's middle stand" before I put it to
    sleep and get going on a new one (remember,
    I'm trying to make records way more regular
    these days). another thing that makes this
    tour interesting is that it'll be my first
    time back for a full-on watt tour in europe
    since seven years ago (that was for
    "...engine room"). I'm gonna make going over
    there more regular too! anyway, a change from
    the u.s./canada tour I just did this last fall
    is that I got paul roessler (from the
    screamers, 45 grave, nina hagen, etc) to take
    pete mazich's place cuz he can go out w/me
    this time. it'll be raul morales' second time
    aboard the watt boat and his first time ever
    across the atlantic.

    Man that sounds great. Next time you go, you should try to book a gig in Iceland if it's practical. It's a fascinating place that everyone should see at least once, and Reykjavik is a happening town.

    Glad I got to see two middle-stand tours before it gets put to rest.
    Any hints what the next album might be like? Another organ trio, or something different?

    I would love to play iceland, hopefully one day I will.

    the next record will be different, not an organ trio but probably a guitar one.
