||Day Three - Austin
We left directly after the
New Orleans show and drove overnight to Austin Texas. I took the first shift through the
night, then the intense heat in the morning, then a downpour of rain later. Gizz drove the
last couple of hours.
The show at the backroom was packed, the merchandise was outside where there was another
stage with local bands playing and a row of concession stands. I spent most of the night
selling Tee Shirts and CD's. Beki from Vice squad and I are having a light hearted banter
about the relative merits of Gibson and Fender Guitars. She plays a Les Paul on some
songs, while I'm a staunch Stratocaster man. Anyway I met another Stratocaster fan, with a
strat tattoo (Peter played in 'Marginal Man' among others). 1 - 0 to me Beki!
Tonight' show was great, we played much better - Gizz was more prepared and in great form.
Because everyone wanted to get a jump on the monster drive the next day, politics bumped
us next to last on the bill. We complained, but the damage was done So after a night
without sleep, we set off again over night to Lawence Kansas
Peter Murray's Fender Tattoo
Nice sunburst finish on that baby Peter
