I thought you might have wanted to know how the story ends.


I wouldn't have shared if my aim was shithouse.

It's a shame that in the effort it took to record Velvet Dress, Adam blew his bass ability for the next ten years. Possibly more.

All of a sudden, I'm glad I don't leave the city much.

Not for me it wouldn't.

That was also Christchurch....the same trip in fact. Funny memories to take away considering their fucking awesome bus station, watching Lancaster Park get demolished and taking a photo of their aerial photo of the Lovetown show that was there.

My crappy memory tells me that LAPOE was pretty good in that department...


Adam totally needs to record a side project and just go nuts.
