folk & world MUSIC

Dear Pals,

Well, it feels like ages and ages, and this letter is just to let you know that California is quite a cool place to be, in case you want to spring for a Visit. Thanks for your cards and letters and tapes. It was weird making adjustments here. So many people think I’m Scottish, and I can’t help hankering for shortbread while sitting by the jacuzzi on one of those coolish California nights.

So, what’s to tell you? First discovery: The Viper Room (the famous River Phoenix place) is truly wee. And...second one... The Roxy (where we’ve already had the chance to play!) is really incredible. You can still feel Jim Morrison snaking around the stage. (The backstage bits are loads like The Venue’s, though).

We’ve played out lots, particularly in Santa Monica, by the ocean, and

in Hollywood. And we just finished

recording a track for a compilation albulm that is going to be released this summer and distributed in the

US and Japan.

So, we’re performing with all these different dudes. Ralph our bass player right now is so cool. You’d really like him. He’s very groovy, and he’s got eleven big brothers so we dont give him any grief, ever.

We think about youse all the time. Hope MAYFEST was brillant. Reckon you’re gearing up for the Festival.

This summer we’re gonna get a website which will be great fun. Better run, the earth is shaking, and I’ve got to find a doorway to stand under.

You’re missed.

Keep reading The List.

Love Fjeare

(or Feef, as y’ve known me)
