yeah, i'm gutted, as JRod doesnt show up on a lot of listings where the 15th is concerned, particularly the mailout from the promoters.

i cannot make the borderline, i can only make the 15th.. but i quite like Centro-Matic, so this will have to do.

:(

personally i'm holding out for it on 8-track, possibly with footage from their current tour with Keane to be out before the end of 2006 exclusively on Betamax.

i have good feelings about this, y'all. news of its release has even been covered here in the UK by Drowned in Sound which is a pretty big thing i think. that site is awesome.

if you make good friends with Keane (i hear they're nice wusses), maybe they can get the LWs some shows over in the UK - i promise to whip customs into shape this time, and you'll hopefully get paid more than £5..?

they were only a 3-man Long Winters for about a year, you'll get used to it being 4 again before you know it!

it's just like a throat sweet but specifically designed for singers, so you gain the ability to sing before you get over whatever caused it.

it's made with approximately 90% magic, like Throat Coat.

if its a last-ditch thing before the gig, you could try getting hold of some Vocal Zone. that'll get you through, as long as youre not doing a gig per day.. then you still might be a bit ropey.
