Ok, back home now, we had a fantastic tour of the States and Canada, apologies if I gave a bum-rap of a few places, no offense meant and its by no means a slur on the places, purely a performance opinion - some places we had hire gear which was crap and we did the best we could. Our crew were the best we've ever had, Mike the tech changed a Double Bass string in record time during one gig, Trevs front of house sound was bollockingly good, Richards monitors were excellent, almost as good as his Kirk impression and T.M Brent rolled with every punch thrown at him, was a joy working with these pros!
Unfortunately I lost my camera after the end of tour party - poops!
Last gig was in Burnaby, Canada, Imelda fell off a fence trying to get out of the festival enclosure to see the Lake behind the stage, she pulled the muscle away from the bone of her ankle and had to do the gig sitting on a chair in agony before leaving for the Hospital to have it strapped up - silly moo!
Just goes to show her determination though eh? after tour party was champagne fueled and someone now has a camera with about 200 bloody good snaps on it, off to buy another tomorrow, what a bummer!
V festival at the weekend so only a couple of days off, shall carry the blog on then,
Cheers for sticking with it x

  2. I hope Imelda gets better soon! We had a great time at the Burnaby Blues Festival. I took some pictures and even have a picture of you playing your bass with a broken string. Let me know if you want it and I'll send the pics to you.

    You guys are wicked! Congratulations on a great show. We all love you from Burnaby. :-)

  3. IMELDA IN BRAZIL

    Hello Imelda,
    I've emailed your agent several times but never got an answer, so I'm taking my chance here!
    I'm from Brazil and work as executive producer for Grupo Vegas, a group of nightclubs here in São Paulo which comprehends Vegas Club ( www.vegasclube.com.br ), Lions Night Club ( www.lionsnightclub.com.br ), Z Carniceria ( www.zcarniceria.com.br ) and Bar Volt ( www.barvolt.com.br ).
    Since 2005, we've been working with shows and deal with artists such as King Kahn and BBQ Show, Heavy Trash, Toy Dolls, Michael Graves, Marky Ramone, Hugo Race, Mamma Rosin, among others. And I also run an independent production company called Mamma Vendetta, www.mammavendetta.com, and with this I had the chance to bring Dead Elvis from Holland, The Readies and Jam Messengers from US, Copter and Black Mekon from UK, and Hugo Race from Australia.
    I'd like to know if you'd be up to come to South America for some shows, what would be the conditions for that, and when you'd like to come!

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Alessandra Maestro
