Happy almost Fourth of July. I hope that you will have a great weekend and not endanger your fellow Fanatics or other citizens of the Republic. Tonight a festive and interesting mix for your ultimate enjoyment. A bit of a concept in our first four tracks. I am very happy with the way all the songs go together, hope you dig it. Tonight, one of my favorite UK Subs songs and as well, one of my favorite Fall tracks as well. I played through these songs over and over in the last several days and I think we have a great Saturday night set.
As I write you, I am sitting on the bus, outside the venue in St. Louis MO. It is Thursday afternoon and there are three shows left on this leg of the tour. I have some shows in Europe here and there over the next several weeks but for the most part, the shows for the year are all but done. It's been a good tour so far.
Next week, new XBXRX, new Dax Riggs, many other interesting tracks. I am just starting work on the set now. I will be checking out all the new stuff that has come in since I was last in the office and see where the music takes me. I think we are going to have a very good and worthwhile set for you.
Thanks for all the great letters about last week's show. So glad you liked it. I like working within concepts, it allows me to focus and put a lot attention to detail into a show. I will come up with some more for later in the year.
To all of our stateside Fanatics, have a great and SAFE holiday weekend, take a gander at your Constitution. The rest of you Fanatics, take good care of yourselves. Next week, we will all be together live, so get ready to get down and STAY FANATIC!!!
