BASKET CASES FOR CHARITYSunday 5th April sees a concert to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society at The Jazz Cafe in Camden, London. Top of the bill is our good friend Curtis E. Johnson, whose CD The Bean King is currently on release and deserving your attention. Max Eider and The Butcher will be playing a set in support, as will the legendary Martin Stevenson. Do try to make it to the show; it will be the Butcher's only British date this year and it's for a great cause. Tickets cost #12:00 from Mean Fiddler outlets and Ticketmaster on 0171 344 4444.
HOLIDAY OF THE LIVING DEADFollowing their enjoyable trip to Seattle and San Francisco last September, Max and The Butcher are due to make a return visit to the USA this spring. They have been invited to play at a wedding party in Atlanta, Georgia on 2nd May. You, of course, can't come to this, but don't despair, for there is also a public show at The Point in Atlanta on Friday 1st May. The rhythm section for the dates is not yet known, but the rumour mill has ground out a number of names, including those of David J and Velvets drummer Maureen Tucker.

I thought I might shed a little light on the Maureen Tucker end of things from that little announcement: As I recall it, Ani Cordero (who was to be playing drums for those Atlanta shows) was in a band with and good friends with a guy who had done some studio work with Mo. Totally unprompted, it was suggested that it might be possible to get her to sit in as she lived close by, in Covington or some place. I donâ€™t even know if Ani knew of Patâ€™s love for the VU! In any case, it never materialized, and I felt so bad for Pat because I know he wouldâ€™ve really liked that. I didnâ€™t realize that David J was also a possible guest.
