We have finally found somebody who is prepared to do some luxurious, lathe-cut vinyl copies of "Gentleman Adventurer". I shall keep you
up to date with our progress on this, of course.
Also on the horizon, it looks as though I might well be going to play solo in Japan, supporting the Monochrome Set in Tokyo October 24th and 25th .
(Eider won't be joining me on this trip.)
I'm also in talks with Alan McGee about a solo acoustic show at his new venue The Tabernacle, which is a beautifully refurbished chapel in a village in
Confused yet? Splendid! Right. I shall probably be sending some dope on the new loungecore combo shortly. Hopefully, a few more dates as well.

I confess, I had no small amount of trepidation approaching the new record. Indeed, I've had it in my possession for a year and I just completed the third listening.
Since the JBC hits me on a basic emotional level (even the funny stuff, always has done), I worry about the releases from my favorite artists as I age exponentially. It's not doubt, it's just wondering where this communique will fit in the cupboard of things near and dear to me. Either there's less space in there, or there are more items in store than I'd care to admit.
I needn't have worried. This is a wonderful record. I'll spare you my nonsense re: what I like and why.
Thanks for realizing you had another one in you and getting it out the door.

Just wanted to follow up on the invitation for The JBC to play at Calgary's well respected High Performance Rodeo. I am not a good friend of Michael (though we have met a few times) but I have attended many events at The High Performance Rodeo and at One Yellow Rabbit theatre and can vouch for the wonderful festival and concur that you would be a wonderful fit. I have sent several messages on this board requesting for you guys to return to Calgary for a live show or two. This might be the best way and venue to make it happen. Please bring Max with you! I enjoyed your last couple of shows here in town but it has been way too long and we need you back! Love the new album!
My brother's mix

So twenty-one years ago, my brother passed away. When going through his things, I found a mix tape of great songs with no tracklisting. It took me twenty-one years, but I finally identified the last two songs: Olof Palme, and the up-tempo version of Southern Mark Smith that appears on Gift of Music.
Unfortunately, I cannot find a digital version of either song. Is there anyone who can help me? I'm more than willing to pay. This would be of great emotional importance to me.
