From: de l`abattoir <del>
a gentleman on the other end of the phone passed on the following info:
o no US/Canadia tour in 94, due to Sony-CA hassles
o the next/last album as the JBC is to be put onto tape
next month, released in january. title unclear at this
moment, ("Cort eating sheep", maybe), as pat is still
finding the "mood". song titles at this point:
"Old Snakey" - about a guy in an insane asylum who keeps
an old egyptian statuette which causes 4000
year-old people to come and beat him up.
"Fight For A Normal Life"
"When Eno Sings" - in the James sing-along stadium-rock vein.
"Nico In The Bar"
working lyric ideas: "life's too short, but so are you"
o "last album": the JBC moniker has been a "millstone around
my neck for at least the last 3 years". "we want to pull
out all the stops, moreso than on Cult".
o the secret weapon for this album will be one David J manning
the knobs during the mix - it is only natural, and pat
figures it will be worth a few sales on that fact alone.
o his passport expires tomorrow, he was sealing it up in the
re-application envelope when i called. he was lamenting
having to say good-bye to the DDR visas, and the general
fact that his passport had been through it ALL.
o good news on future tours... "big bazzer", the guy who did
the Blue Aeroplane's sound during the 90 US tour is starting
up his own tour-running thing, and the JBC are on board.
also under baz's wing are The Cramps.
o i had to re-assure him that Chris Camfield was NOT making
massive quantities of money off of the t-shirt thing.
o news to make edwardc happy: the Black Eg have "fucked off",
and it is rumored that an outfit called the White Eggs have
begun a retaliation campaign. the fortress rave-gig did not
happen, as the soundpeople had no way to plug the Eg in.
the Black Eg left, disgusted, and declared England full of pigs.
o sales in Japan are "rising, son"
o on Haiti - "they check in, but they don't check out - you would
think at least someone in the White House would have heard
that by now!"
12Oct94 - Its Got To Be Belgium (Slurp's Wino Bar), Northampton
21Dec94 - Its Got To Be Belgium (Slurp's Wino Bar), Northampton
AND - waiting in the post when i got to work: another 10-pager to be typed-up
and passed onto the jbc-list. includes gig reviews, details on the above,
and some more "talk-back" to previous jbc-list posts. these should start
going out this evening and be available on the WWW server thereafter.
