Hi everyone, sorry its been so long! Just been so busy finishing writing for this next record. We go back into the studio this week to begin the last portion of recording, and hopefully it'll be mixed in May. Before i go on about the future i want to thank a few of the kind hearted folks who have sent us donations to help with the insanely expensive vet bill for our dog Ruby(who is doing great post surgery...fully recovered and quick!). We hated to draw attention to it as we know we aren't the only folks going thru rough times money-wise.... but i always have said i would do whatever it takes to help my dog when the time came... and that time has come. So thank you "Teardrop' and the others for thinking of us in our time of need. Anyway, Phil and I will be playing the Triple Door(Seattle) on April 15th, and for those of you that liked us in the old days when we sat down-well, we have a special surprise for you!.... Anne Marie will be joining us for a few songs as she is accompanying Mike Dumovich who is opening the show... he has a stunner of a new record out... so, this will be a special night. In other news, I am going to be performing the "Sinking Belle" with SUNNO)) and Boris at All Tomorrow Parties in Sept... below is a press release (Bill Herzog will also be part of this.. and Phil too with his dreamy harmonies!) ok, well enjoy the springtime whrever you may be.....(i apologize for the horrible writing on this one... was kept up all night by a dying refrigerator...i am typing this as i wait for the fridge repairman!!) All my best-jesse
