Our new 22 track album INTRODUCING: SCREAMFEEDER – singles and more 1992 – 2004 is out next week, and we’re off on tour to celebrate. Our good mates ELECTRICO from Singapore are schlepping all the way over here to support us on half the dates (as well as doing their own shows).
I had a word with the manager of Jacka’s out at Kedron the other night, see if I could get him to give the dude from Lo Tel (he’s moved up to Brissie to be closer to us, whaddya know?!) a few nights off work so they could fill in the missing support slots.
He said I might have to go in and do a few daytime slots myself to make up for it, so I’m trying to hook Darek (who has run off and joined Intercooler as well now, two timing little tart!) into that little number. Negotiations are still underway, so fingers crossed.
Anyway here’s how it’s looking.
- Thurs 2 Sept MOJOS BAR – North Fremantle WA + Tucker Bs & Ikey Mo
- Friday 3 Sept Amplifier Bar – North Perth WA + Tucker Bs & The Avenues
- Sat 4th Sept Jive Bar, Adelaide – supports TBA
