TRY THIS AT HOME;
in the USA"
started playing with Arthur back in 1993. And since that time, we've
4 trips to Europe (5, if you count our next trip in August) and
played a few
out of town shows in the states (lots of shows in Los Angeles, plus
west coast tour w/ Spirit in '93, a terrible show in San Fransisco
in '95 with
Dave chapple and myself and a drummer from the audience... a kid
Kent, and 1 show we did in Chicago in '93). But LOVE has never really
represented with US in America. Now, he played some shows on the
east coast in
'93 with Das Damen, who are a good band. I've heard some boots from
shows and, if anyone remembers what Arthur sounded like BEFORE he
us, well, you get the picture. now, if you want to hear Hendrix

radio anymore. But this is what we were up against going to the
UK to do those
shows. A guy actually asked me, in Liverpool, if we thought we could

the guys he played with, Shack, are nice guys-they came to Liverpool
manchester and hung out backstage at both. But, I had to tell the

Arthur take his act to a level you won't experience any place else.
was great and showed up to every show. Now it's America's turn.
We are making this tour even better than the last, adding more songs
so, when we get back to Scotland and England (Aug 22 on...), it's
gonna be even
more fun. The whole point is for everyone to enjoy themselves, enjoy
and be a part of something that, this time last year, was unfathomable.
