Just got back from seeing this local country rock band at Manchester Lane, Mlebourne. Encored with Friend Of The Devil (the fast version)..
... definitely ain't gots mine. I'll be addressing this issue when I return to work next week.
There's an email for a person named Casson on the relevant thread who's dealing with this shambles.
She works for the fulfillment company involved, "fulfillment company" being a phrase that fundamentally gives me the creeps. Kinda, you know, definitely NOT a GD vibe.
Small consolation: Going by the "listening party" they, it sounds like a dog anyway - a judgment confirmed by a Maldon GD buddy who HAS got his copy.
Did anyone pre-order Road Trips Vol 1 and actually receive it? I pre-ordered on November 3rd and then waited until January 4th before emailing a complaint to the Dead Store that it had not received. It was shipped again and arrived in 6 days!
"Lost in the post" - well maybe, except that I know at least 3 others Aussie Deadheads who had the same experience with this shipment.
... spotted in Blenheim, NZ: 0
Musical highlight: Hearing "Everlasting Love" by U2 on the plane home. Now that's a band I generally loathe, but it's a great tune. I wish I still had the album with it on by the tune's composer, Mac Gayden, AND all the great Barefoot Jerry stuff.
... to all my fellow Melbin/Oz Deadheads.
Bennie and I are bunking at Grandma's joint in Blenheim (top of the South Island) for the next week or so. With nothing more strenuous planned than movies, A-League and Premier League and Food Channel on the box, the odd movie, winery eats, lots of reading (Michael Moorcock's Gloriana) and so on.
I look forward to hooking up with you all on our return.
Anything happening in Sydney or Adelaide? I'll be in those two cities in December and January.
next one planned for Sunday, February 3.
Well we're getting there - our first get-together had three folks, the secnd six.
Looking ahead - a "film eveing" is planned for Sunday, February 6, at a venue and time yet to be finalised.
Stay tuned right here; newcomers please register your interest, too.
I haven't been at the Commercial on a Sunday arvo for at least a couple of years, so I'm just assuming it'll be open.
Bennie and I went a couple of months ago for the $10 Monday meal deal. We drove past on the way to tae kwando this morning and the out-back beer garden looked like a cool place for us to visit.
See yez tomorrow!
A long 12 hours of boring post-election newspapering today, with the following to keeps me awake:
Roky Erickson - I Have Always Been Here Before. I love the sound of distorted autoharp in the morming!
GD - DP29, Steppin' Out With ..., Vault III
I just waded in here to say hi to all aussie deadheads out there.....c'mon out 'n play mates!!
A trueblue deadhead here...............!:)
