hey boss! How u today! Yeah i was down in South Queensferry, dont know why, but i actually miss it, all my older friends left for Cali, and surrounding areas, some went to Michigan, so i guess i had to leave too.. These people gave me my first taste of music, i mean like 25 years back, a real mountain of sounds, and most of the usual stuff u all talk about, but as diverse as lefty frizzell, some pre 65 avant garde, lots of acid sounds, mod of course, and the beat thing.. We have a great scene out here now though, the Mummies played a wee while back.. And the scene here is hot anyway..

Heya. Gnus of Gnaverone, wot an album. Love it, love it, love it. I'm from Dundee myself and have seen and been in a few bands around the north east. Creeping Terror played a few times in auld reekie and Troy Mclure and the Octembers played Basin street and a few other places in the middle belt. Keep doin wot yer doin my man, we all appreciate it soooooooo much!
The Mourning after.. Theres a blast from the past. we had Kev the keyboard player sleep on our couch more often than not. Lost touch wi him and his girl wendy a while back. Some naff rock band in the states wi the same name now. They were fabulous. Y'dont have a copy of the live tape anywhere do ya? Pauline, was a gnarl classic. We supported them when they played the west port bar in Dundee. D'ya know it? Striped shirts and bobbed hair back then. still wearin the shirts but the hair a bit thin on the ground now, literally. Gotta new band goin on up here keepin the garage thing alive. Friends of the light Machine. auld men makin' a racket, that should ken better.
