    from stuart braithwaite, on

    this is a strange place. it seems like where people who inhabit the middle of nowhere go on holiday. it's so hot our eyes are sweating and our body clocks are unimpressed that according to them we are playing at 5 in the morning. the day was spent watching my favourite tv channel 'fox "news"'. there is a feature on a man who has eaten 20 000 big macs. his moniker is "big mac man". we also watch the commander-in-chief deliver an astoundingly patronising speech to the urban league. what he lacks in brains he more than makes up for in unintentional humour. butlins should book him now for next summer. i love america. i get the impression, from the fact that the other upcoming attractions at the venue (a lynryd skynrd theme bar) are dokken and wasp, that bands like ourselves don't come through town that often. with that in mind it's not much of a surprise to find that we play to the smallest (though definitely not the least enthusiastic) crowd we've played to in years. we play a few songs we haven't done in a while and end up having fun. or as much fun as you can have whilst playing our music. roll on tomorrow.
