4.JOEY ONLY TEAMS UP WITH LIQOURBOX
As it costs too much to take the JOEY ONLY OUTLAW BAND across northern Ontario it seemed simpler to find another band that resembles the Outlaws and join up with them. That band is Kingston Ontario's bad-ass alt-country boys LIQOURBOX. This band was born out of a historic punk rock act called the Polidicks, nonetheless these guys are going C&W all the way
...and we're headed east joining up with great bands such as THE CREEPSHOW and CAREY BECK!
...not to mention JOEY ONLY turns 30 in Ottawa when we stop there
...we hope all our friends come out!

5.MORE NEWS: CAR WRECKS, SPIDERS DEATH AND MORE:
Yes friends, it was a wild month that February was! I played 9 shows in three provinces, learned how to snowboard, rolled a van twice in Creston BC, worked 7 night shifts in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver and flew to Ontario for Spider's funeral.
We are okay from the accident just in case you've heard different. We hit black ice on the Creston Pass and wrote the van off
...both Leah and I were okay and all our instruments were relatively unscathed. Then a great friend of mine passed away, SPIDER(www.warrenhastings.com )...the Gump of Punk and the promoter of Ontario's wildest bush party PUNKFEST! In his 73 years he went everywhere and did everything! We had in his honour the heaviest funeral in the universe right in BELLEVILLE ONTARIO!! The after party featured long time Punkfest bands such as PUNCHDRUNK, DIRTY BIRD, FUCKNUCKLES, MURDER SQUAD and THEPOSERS!
We will miss Spider dearly, but it seemed obvious that 15 years or more of friendships will not dissolve simply because the unifying factor (Spider) is not with us any longer. Seeing all you old friends again meant a lot to me
... Now I am booking April to tour with ANNE FEENEY and LIQOURBOX
...I still need help finding shows so do not hesitate to contact me if you can help us book that up. Also in June we are booking a BC/ALBERTA tour with THE REMAINS...Australia's best country band! Stay tuned for more details in the months to come!!
By this summer we should be releasing a GREATEST HITS compilation to replace those four records we've produced to this point
...by this winter we'll have a new album TRANSGRESSION TRAIL. We've just landed a hot new upright bassplayer named JUSTINE and we're gonna play play play play and play!!!
Otherwise don't expect to see much of us on the tour and festival circuit this summer...I'm gone mountaineering!! Thanx for all your support!!
