Meth-Heads Foiled!

Meth-Heads Foiled!

Postby mozzer on Fri Apr 08, 2005 1:21 pm

Please accept my earnest apology for us being all a-slack on posting to the tour journal, but this first part of the tour has been a bit of a rollercoaster. Just now we’re beginning to feel settled into the new members, new venues, new instruments etc, with only a few days left in the first leg.


As you may or may not know, there has recently been a massive raid on a handful of houses in Portland and a few pieces of our stolen gear have been unearthed. We’ll have to wait until we’re back in Portland to find out exactly what will be returned to us (guitars, keyboards, accordions are still at large), but we’re told there are several other sites where the police have found veritable scads of musical instruments. It’s very exciting to think that this operation may return instruments to many other bands who have had their gear stolen in the last few years. However, we’re still pretty in the dark about how much of our gear will actually be returned to us and the condition it will be in after a spending a month in a meth lab. We’ll make sure to keep this news page updated as we know more ourselves.


As for those of you who, out of the mind-boggling kindness of your golden hearts, have donated to the gear replacement fund, we cannot thank you enough. Your show of charity has only reinforced our knowledge that we seriously have the coolest fans in the world. Provided that everything comes back safely and in one piece, we’ll set about trying to give people the option to either have their money refunded or have it redirected to another charity. Again, check back to this page for updates.


Best,


Colin Meloy

I want to hear those intsruments. It will be a homecoming like no other. What your faces will be like when the wood and metal touches your fingers again.
