Hier gehen wir wieder...


Well, with Europe in the grip of it's coldest winter for thirty years (or something..) the plucky boffins at Goldrush Mission Control have decided, in their wisdom, to despatch us on a European tour taking in Germany, Belgium, Austria, the Czech Republic and Switzerland, where the Alps, of course, go up to eleven.

Thus far, Chicago in December will take some beating as the coldest place we've ever gigged, but we're steeling ourselves for the worst, and the sled is, as we speak, being stacked with a month's supply of sealskin undergarments, tweed socks and emergency Oxtail soup.

Robin has gone on ahead , doing promo stuff, and is currently to be found walking the streets of Dortmund, phrasebook in hand, asking the way to the Garden Centre and explaining that his hovercraft is full of eels.

So then, once more unto the breach dear friends, once more!

Stay tuned...
