|Just near Windorah, Qld|
Then the battery went flat and then I got assaulted by a bunch of flies, wasn’t a good two days, but we finally made it to Quilpie for our one and only show at the Imperial Hotel.
During our break we met two locals ‘Wally’ and ‘Benno’ – Wally desperately wanted my business card so he could hook me up with some gigs in Mt Isa, but Benno, told me had googled all about me before I got here and researched who was coming to town. He was also a drummer and in a local band. He told us that the last gig at the Imperial hotel was in 2006…so we were fresh meat haha. Benno took a fancy to Stewarts shirt. I bought Stew the shirt from Salvo’s for $4.00 and Benno was pleading to buy it off Stewart. He was willing to pay anything (He did have a few too many drinks). We could’ve made a big profit on this and a half a tank of petrol. Benno said ‘Ok well I’ve give you my number incase you change your mind’.
Anyway we’re on our way through to Katherine of the next week and a half. Scorching in the sun at Longreach at the moment with a wet towel on my head…if you thought touring was glamourous then I’d hate to break it to you, there’s no one fanning me and feeding me grapes on a banana chair over here!
Smell ya later
snez & stew xx
