Hard News: Music! The time Sneaky…,
Oh my god - just seen this. Russellwaters was one of the great days when everything about provincial DIY culture came together gloriously, a Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland "Let's do the show right here!" movie inside a cloud of weed surfing a sea of DB. I remember a hat being passed around for tour van fuel: $50 and a watch, but the band gave the watch back to the owner. Had to borrow 'the big Masport' from my dad the weekend before to tackle months of untamed lawn. He trusted me and the lawn so little that he insisted on a deposit for the mower. Classy move, Dad. I've never seen any photos from the day, so this is rather special. A wonderful, magical thing to have happen in your back garden.
