Yes comrades. How is everyone? Okay? Okay... I do tend to say this quite often I know but... it's been a long time since we last spoke. I don't really remember when it was to be honest. Three weeks ago?

Fuck knows! Anyway... that American tour was...

Comrades.

The gig in Doozle-dorf was not the best. Not for me anyway. I must tell you I've got glandular fever and have been suffering with it for nearly a month now. Been feeling my age recently.

Good job I've only got five weeks...

Yes comrades.

So, Singapore then? It was great. I do like that gaff. Very exotic. It pretty much amounts to a gigantic shopping mall. Nice place. Nice people. Very hot. Very wet.

The Grand Prix was in town. Seems like a right laugh. Absolutely...

Comrades... this cold is fucking killing me (man!).

Horrible, horrible couple of days. I fucking hate being a sick boy. It's at times like this I wish I was still in a band so I could just shuffle onstage and stand at the back. Not good.

Yes comrades.

So... that England game was an epic encounter. Great atmosphere. Good laugh and all.

Caught an early flight the next morning with a load of glum looking Swedes to Stockholm. Did a show at that Hultsfred Festival. It was okay.. nothing more. Think the crowd enjoyed it more...

Well that tv show was - as predicted - fucking insane. It's quite difficult to know what these Japanese shows are actually supposed to be about, but I'm guessing it was like some kind of version of our very own Top of the Pops (R.I.P.).

It was...

Yes comrades... so... Buenos Aires?

Fucking great show. It always is in that place. It never disappoints. Big crowd, about 10,000!! Just like the old days (man)!!

The gig itself was out doors right beside a busy railway line and quite near an airport AND it was a full moon!...
