for reference - that's about 30 confirmations on the CD, now.. those who offered to help press thanks - so noted. pat expressed concern that, given that they will probably be rusty (ain't '86, ya know), that the show may not be worthy of release. he may have final say in the matter, so keep that in mind.

shirts, unfortunately, are a bitch to scan. it'd be cool to have pictures of pat/max modelling the various shirts :-)

send scans, knight. a VRML of the yo-yo would be a nice touch..

as coincidence would have it - i spoke to pat this morning. he has a handful(l) of old t-shirts he wants to get rid of. more than a handfull of old posters as well. he is going to email me with his list and we will see what happens from there. it will probably be an auction/feeding frenzy. pat: "do you think i could get 3 quid for a shirt" david: "are you kidding?" given that they originally sold for $25 or so.

thanks! hope to be putting some new ones in there soon :-)

i am all for fezzes!
i will be taking a more solid query of jbc-listers closer to the date to see how many will be there. i have lost count by now of the various "aye"s - close to 3 dozen, i suspect.

drinks - an update: i mentioned to pat that with as many people as there were going to be there it would be a decent to do to have a meet the queen line or something. he agreed. they arrive in SF sunday the 21st. he doesnt want to do it before the show on the 22nd and after shows are always hectic, so he thought the best thing would to be a sunday get-together. this may screw with those who ticketed themselves to be in town on the 22nd. wish we had brought this up sooner, but that is the current casual thinking.

i work in SF, but don't frequent clubs/bars much. who lives in SF and could recommend/help line up a place to meet the band on a sunday evening?

oh yeah - those planning to attend the UK show on the 11th of september. pat wanted me to mention just how SMALL the club is and how likely the show is to sell out. so - call the phone number on the website and order your tickets NOW. plus, it'll save you some dough.

Alan McGee (president of Creation records) spoke with pat recently and was going on incoherently about the Labour Party. the next day, on the TV news, was Alan McGee, who apparently had been put in some position with the government as an advisor on Music and Drugs.

pat said: "but he's MY advisor on Music and Drugs!"

How perfectly goddamned delightful it all is, to be sure - C. Crumb
