Is it the air defined
By a borderline
Is it where they pass
Real-time and there's
Fast food and faster cars
For the cool dudes
And the movie stars
An assembly line of future fate
All gift-wrapped in red tape
And inside the pre-paid
And packaged lives
All laid out in the 9 to 5

The Real World

Great weekend at Peats Ridge Festival outside Sydney - 12 hours drive each way in the bus with drummer Shane and bass player Christian, but well worth it for a festival in a valley surrounded by creeks and wooded hills down a long winding dirt track... much like home! Thanks to Matt Grant for inviting us, and Damion Cunningham for looking after us - we loved it.

Back from London to the goat farm in the hills behind the Sunshine Coast in Australia... it's very hot, and the shack needs some serious dusting but apart from that, no snakes moved in while we were away so we're very happy to be home. And kidding season's over so no baby goats to feed for the time being, though the vege garden needs several days weeding... ah the life of rock'n'roll!

In case you're wondering what a shack made out of wood, tin and potato sacks looks like, here's a pic...
