KFC

It's water under the bridge.

Knitting Factory show last year was blighted by Jason, arguably the worst sound technician on the planet (compare to last night's always attentive, very efficient, and friendly team at Numusic in Stavanger), and we ended up having to abort the show because of his totally unacceptable behaviour - and it's not because it was us, the KF's house sound guy is known to treat all bands with the same high-handed contempt and disregard, knowing his job secure and safe owing to the dependence on the club's backers: a major multinational petrochemical company.

Despite all that, it left an awful taste to hear about people that had come to see us there, many having travelled a long way, to leave disappointed.

I was one of those people with tickets for that show. Fortunately, I had gone to the Brooklyn gig the night before, so my disappointment was softened. Any plans to return to NYC in 2006?

re: lemmy... according to a quick google search "the group's bassist, Lemmy, claimed that another member had a big nose like the beak of a bird and a gas problem, hence, Hawkwind. "

Joe Piecuch -- haven't seen that name since the Offense Newsletter closed down. What's TKA doing now I wonder... ?
