Hi People

Thanks to all that made April such a good month in America - to
travelling companions Jon Leidecker, Mark Gunderson and Irene Moon
for making this worthwhile. Thanks also to Charles Powne, Rick
Prelinger, Jay Lesser, Ryan Junell and Steev Hise for collaboration,
travel and positive things in general. Thank you also to the various
poor souls that we borrowed equipment from and stayed with
unexpectedly and so on! We also did lots and lots of radio (WFMU,
KBOO, KFJC and KZSU). Some will be released (nice and non specific,
that). Lastly thanks to Dan Deacon at SUNY for having us play at
Purchase College, making this whole thing possible and kicking off
the rest of the gigs, meetings, radio. No thanks to The Knitting
Factory in LA, in general. Despite apathy/dimness from some of the
venues, we experienced a lot of enthusiasm from our audiences.

At the beginning of May we ran home, dragging some Americans back
too, to play at the Purcell Room at the beginning of May, the best
event PLU have played, with the best people (Wobbly, The ECC, Matt
Wand and Felix Kubin). Apart from The ECC crashing their hurse and
nearly braining us all, and Wobbly exploding his appendix I think we
are probably all the better for this, once we land. Oh, we came home
weeks ago.

Thank you Joana Seguro, Glenn Max and Kirsten Reynolds for the
starkest contrast in hospitality compared to the previous weeks in
the US. Mark Gunderson of The Evolution Control Committee has posted
up many pictures of the rock'n roll happenings of the past month here:
Recommended - the video clip of Felix Kubin sweeping the stage
trouserless to a solitary early arrival to the auditorium... Mr ECC
has also recently gotten around to posting up images from the
Electrofringe Festival from last Autumn here:
