We're playing three shows in BC next week. For a while i wasn't convinced it was going to happen, but flights have been paid for, work has been cancelled, dogs have sitters and attitudes are now firmly 'Can-Do'.
Friday July 6th The Astoria

We'll be collaborating with The Rita at this show
Saturday July 7th Squamish, Fastcore Fest .

Fastcore fest will be compered by the entire genre of Reggae, 1965-1998
Sunday July 8th house show at the Chateau Noir w/ Canada's greatest fuck: Radioactive Vomit, and Cooked and Eaten
If UPS doesn't do their usual trick of delivering records for tour three days after we've gone home, the show at the Astoria will have some magical version of Mission from God 12" with some e bay friendly trimmings. Buy them all from us, we don't care what you do with them as long as we have money for beer and falafel (my spell check keeps suggesting 'fellatio' here).
The record will be available for everyone else sometime in July.
My crazy adventure with academia is almost at an end, which means some of our records might come out quicker; the next two and a half are written.
It also means i might have some time to book some shows further afield at some point.

Mothers Day (2010) - i liked the unrelenting cruelty of it, but it was way too long for me to give a shit about the last 20-30 minutes and it reminded me of:
Kidnapped AKA Secuestrados - which was amazing from start to finish
