|BLACK MOLD [THEY SPELL IT MOULD] ON UK ROOFTOPS|
Recent e-mail from my brother Joe of The Queers fame (hit tunees include "Born to Do Dishes," "Next Stop Rehab" and "Punk Rock Girls"):
Hey Heath how are you? Where are you? LA or Palm Springs or what? I'm in the UK finishing up a Euro tour. Did 2 weeks in Italy-4 shows in Norway and now 10 in the UK. We fly to Milan a week from tomorrow for our very last festival show of the tour. Home a week from Sunday thank God. We haven't stopped all winter.
Weather's good here-actually a record today they're expecting. Around 70 which is something else for this fogbound hellhole of a country. Something about the black mold growing on the outside of buildings here just depresses the hell out of me.
Anyway just wanted to check in. I'll give you a shout when I'm home or try me. Oh we're doing an LA show with Screeching Weasel in LA in mid-July-around the 18th I believe-or a few days earlier. You gotta come check that out. You won't believe how big those guys are. It'll be unreal. Hell you could come onstage with us and sing. We'll have you start This Place Sucks-more a showcase for how loud you can yell as opposed to singing but we all have to start somewhere. I think you'd do a kickass job.
Ok hope all is well and I'll talk at ya later gator-
Check out this band, they're pretty good.
As I told him, something to look forward to for my 60th birthday (July 19th). Maybe I could lead the youngsters in a decade of the rosary while I'm up there. Never a dull moment with the King Family!

Amazon Editorial Review of Two Gallants' What the Toll Tells:
"On their second full-length, Two Gallants weave urgent back-alley storytelling with no-frills instrumentation that alternately boils with visceral fervor and mourns with plaintive restraint. The youthful duo play a strain of rock that falls somewhere between folk, punk, and old-time blues and the resulting sound is much more than the sum of its parts. Two Gallants draw on Old West images and themes of revenge, redemption, and shifty morality to create wide-swinging moods trafficking in brash ferocity, repentant regret, and freewheelin' Americana. The double LP version includes two bonus tracks from the band's early recordings."
