Fanatic! I am at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. Three of my four shows are done. I wish I had three more weeks here.
I don’t know if you care or not, but have you seen all the different colors variations of the new Dinosaur Jr. and Thee Oh Sees albums? They look pretty cool. You are free to over pay for them on eBay and Discogs now. Both bands have released fantastic new albums that I hope you are checking out.
I think you would like the scene out here. Tons of shows, people all over, lots of places to eat—it will be hard to leave in a couple of days.
I spent a few hours earlier today, hanging out with Segs of the Ruts, shooting some video footage for a song on the new Ruts DC album called Music Must Destroy. I did the vocal with Segs a few weeks ago. I think the record is out soon. I will get tracks to you as soon as I can.
What we have for you below is two solid hours of fantastic tunes which of course we hope you enjoy. Enjoy the summer and STAY FANATIC!!!
