On Sunday night, about 35 miles outside of Houston, our van's engine caught on fire. We were unable to put out the fire and were forced to evacuate the area as quickly as possible - and everyone got out safely. Within five minutes we were standing helplessly watching our van become entirely engulfed in flames. All of our equipment and merchandise was destroyed, along with a lot of personal items. The fire department came and put out the fire before the gas tank exploded, but needless to say our van is now in a junkyard somewhere outside of Houston. A big thanks to Stephanie from Sugar Shack (and her young baby Baxter) who came to our rescue and drove out of Houston to get us and drive us to a hotel and rental car office. We'd probably still be in the middle of nowhere if it weren't for her.

The rest of the tour, which was to take us to Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and Indiana, was canceled. We are still going to try to play our shows in Minneapolis and Chicago on August 1st and 2nd - and we still plan on touring Europe in the fall - but all other touring is off indefinitely. We had insurance on both the van and equipment, and I'd love to go into detail on how the insurance companies are jumping through hoops to screw us, but suffice it to say they found enough loopholes to screw us out of just about ALL COVERAGE on both the van and equipment.

There may be a fund set up in the event that anyone would like to help us get back on our feet. I'll keep you posted.

After all this bad news, I think it's appropriate to end by directing everyone to Watch Me Eat A Hot Dog dot com to see what the Mistreaters were doing in New Orleans the night before the van went up in flames. (Thanks Chris Martel - you're a genius) http://www.watchmeeatahotdog.com/eaters/index.php?eater=mistreaters

If anyone has leads on any 60's Kay electric guitars or Sears Silvertone Solid State amplifiers, please get in touch.

They're coming to Austin this week...my three year old loves them, but I'm sure she'll see they can't hold a candle to South Filthy, The Compusive Gamblers, or the Oblivians (not to mention the Deadly Snakes, the Crack Pipes, or Howling Guitar).

She must live and learn that when it comes to rockin' that booty, mom and dad know where it's at. Gosh, when her big sister was three, she was shakin' her post bath naked booty to the Revelators. Still does, but now she knows that a modest girl at least wears panties (although according to her, the Howling Wolf never wore Panties), "Did he Daddy?"

No, the Howling Wolf didn't wear panties, Walter said. Who says children are not sages? None of really know the proclivities of HW, he may have worn panties for a thrill...he was such a big man...
