2000 - Guess who finally arrived back in town (Oct. 17)? After a "grueling" 3 month all expenses paid tour of Europe Mr. Drool finally came home for a little R&R! Says he's off to Costa Rica in a month... So, we're gonna try and play some shows over the next few weeks...
2000 - Drool called to say that he will be back from his Ur-a-peein' Tour during the first week in October (see below) with this in mind we are beginning to setup some shows. Rumour has it that we will play with Armed'n'Hammered when they get back from their Ur-a-peein' Tour and hopefully Vulgar Deli will be on the bill as well - That will be a Toronto show. We are also setting up a Montreal show but I don't know the details of that yet... I also heard something about opening up for - can't remember the name of the band but you would know them if I could remember - that show will be in Toronto at the El Mocambo. On the lighter side of things I heard a rumour that Drool had all of his (tribenation's) video gear stolen while he was in Amsterdam. Likely story! I say he pawned it to keep himself in loose drugs and fast women...
Summer 2000 - we were hoping to do some touring this summer but it looks like we are just going to be sitting on our thumbs while Drool tours on his own! A few days ago he was bitchin' hard on our drummer for missing a practice and today he gets posted to a summer gig touring Europe. That's right - touring Europe in a 25 year old VW bus with a video camera. He has a gig with TribeNation - his beat was supposed to be extreme sports in North America but they had a situation that required him to be in the UK by next friday! So, who's the bitch now? Anyway, if any of you want to see what he has been up to and follow along with him this summer as he heads into every kind of craziness Europe has to offer then tune in to http://www.tribenation.com - the site doesn't officially open until August 1 but you can see what they are up to now... PS. Last I heard Drool wasn't expected back until end of September! Prick...

Summer 99 - Lots of shows outside Toronto. Don't ask me where. I was out of commision and they got Chris Boneless to sub in on guitar. I remember almost playing one show! It was at some FAMILY WATER PARK in the middle of July! The show got all kinds of advertising on a commercial radio station and was sponsored by an alcohol company. I was suspious of the gig to begin with but I went anyway... When I arrived it was blistering hot and there were a couple thousand people in the park. None of them to see us! Just a bunch of families trying to beat the heat. I made my way to the stage and found the rest of the band in various stages of relaxation. ie. They were lying around very close to the free booze station! Drool was in fine form. He had been camped there over night drinking instead of sleeping! Strike one. We went on stage about twenty minutes after I arrived. We got 3 songs into our set and they pulled the plug on us! Drool freaked on the sound guy. He then got back on stage and told us to keep playing. We started up again but without the P.A. At this point the show organizers showed up at the side of the stage and tried to persade us to stop playing. We oblige. But a little too late. The damage was done. It turned out that they shut us down because Drool swore. Yup! That's right. Now, you would think that someone would have thought about this before they booked us and a bunch of other punk bands into a family water park. First, of all, Drool didn't swear during our set - he was singing the lyrics to our songs (All of which have profanities). But you can bet he was swearing when they shut us down! He went back stage and freaked at the top of his lungs (everyone was standing around watching him freak). One of the guys from Trunk came dangerously close to being squished like a bug for hassling Drool about getting the show cancelled. Then someone shouted that the cops and security were coming. At this point, we hid Drool in our van. When they arrived I negotiated with park security on Drools behalf. When the cops asked where Drools was both Mudd and I declared we didn't know and that we thought he had gone elsewhere in the park. Park security said if Drool left that instant that they would not press charges. I got the cops to agree that they wouldn't arrest him once out of the park and then we got Drool out of the van (which was right beside us) and he and I proceed to exit the park. The cops were pissed because we lied to them about Drools whereabouts. :-). Anyway, all seemed cool until we got to the park exit and then the cops reappeared to give us the final escort. Just as we were about to exit the park, Andy from Two Pump Louie and Rob's (our drummer) brother show up behind the cops with a video camera. They informed the cops that everything was being taped and they should be nice to Drool. They laughed and said they weren't going to do anything they just want to make sure that he left... And leave without incident (and without his presonal property - shoes, shirt, cigarettes, keys, etc) he did. And we all lived happily ever after! ;-)
