Back home from Australia .

Everyone made it home and most of the gear and luggage .
Dave and Chris had an aborted landing at Pearson . But after twenty- eight hours , who cared ?
Joel was on a plane with his buddy , Bo Diddley .

No rest for the wicked . It's straight into SILVERCHILDE STUDIOS and Dave's record and then reheasals for the Ashtray Rock tour and a month on the road across the homeland .

And ... the PLAYOFFS start tonight . We are still awaitng reports of the Halifax/Dartmouth Ferries -Dave Marsh -less progress at the years Exclaim! Cup in Toronto . They probably swept .

The Great Escape Festival saw us 3 times over the weekend , one JOEL PLASKETT and two JOEL PLASKETT EMERGENCY musical revues that went down very well indeed .
Lee Scratch Perry lit his microphone on fire .
Lemonheads did not make lemonade . And
Marsh and Elk messed the entire stage up pretty good with the ever popular ' exploding bale of hay ' gag .

WE are going HOME . First thing tomorrow morning . A quick 32 hours or so and out of the sandals and into the hand knit addidas slippers . Look out ladies . And , oh , pressies for everyone !
Montreal lost to the Leafs !!?? Out of the playoffs by one point !?? Might as well stay down here for knifey /spoony season . Or better yet , ANZAC DAY and get the low down on the game of TWO UP .

Australia Fair has been good to these bluenosers . Until we return .

Thanks for everything Geoff ' CK1 ' Trio and Corrin Donnelly .
The Hopetoun Hotel , surrey hills , Sydney ... played host to the penultimate Emergency show of the long and winding ' Australia Tour 07 , This Time It's Personel ' .
Get it ?

A rocking saturday night piss up made even better by the Handsome Young Strangers and Dead Letter Chorus both playing great sets .

Time to get some culture around here . But we can't find any . So , here's Lou Reed and John Cale with a song about Andy Warhol . Verging on Christopher Guest .

It's been awhile since The Elk torn up the Bridgewater Exhibition with his heroics at the OX Pull , so we can't wait to see what goes down at this evenings gig at THE SYDNEY ROYAL EASTER SHOW .
a gig made memorable by the rocking of the legendary The Radiators
