Rippin' e-mail from Angus


SEV here. Just got a rippin note from Angus from the road. What a guy!

Can't wait to hear the lads hammer and drive those broadsword lyrics of theirs in thumpin' good measure.


We only just pulled in to some town called "Rome". The driver tells us it is in your state called "jaw-ja" (apologies for the spelling, cuz...never my forte like you - dang'ed ol' gene pool).

Anyhow, we're looking forward to the upcoming gig. Should be a real ripper.

Our electric mandolin player finally got lucky. Last night in Birmingham he hooked up with a real doll. We haven't seen him since, but we do have his kilt hangin on the arial of the bus. Making quite a rip, and peoples know we are in town (never have painted the bus).

I'm certain we'll hear from Fulke soon. You know how he is...liable to go walk-about any time.

You know any mandolin players available? Surely with your family up in Kentucky? We need a stand-by in case Fulke decides to one day make one of his diversions permanent.

I just hope he rembers Hot-lanta this coming Friday (and that Birmingham has an airport).

Well, back to the road, cuz.

You should join us!

-your ever-luvin cuz,

Actually, my couin in Kentuck who could play the mandolin, got his arm caught in a combine. Ruined the combine, and his whole arm and shoulder are in a cast for the next six months, so if anyone knows someone who can play an ELECTRIC mandolin...please pass it along.

SEV - since you're linked up with THE BOYS, any chance you can get us a sneak peak at some of the new songs? Pete mentioned there was one called "Highland Heavy Metal Queen" that was sort of folksy at the start but that really started to shred when it got to the chorus.

Actually, if it is the one of which I am thinking, it is entitled "My Highland, Metal-heavy Queen"'s an exerpt:

"She's from that high, high land,
where the land's so high
a Scot's-Jew banker
couldn't pay for the ride.

She's my metal-heavin' queen,
my lost love, so full of steam.
She's my metal-heavy queen,
Got the corn-uh on da market
her commodity, a dream.

Platinum, gold, silver and brass
her commodity's a dream
metal queen, ain't gotta ask
she's got da metal for da takin
she's a metal-heaven dream,

oh my love,
my metal-heavy dream
she got the molten metal steam
that gal's my metal-heavy queen.
