    not sure if it has been posted before but it appears George is playing drums for Evan Dando on his current tour.

    The new album is very good too if you have not heard it yet!

    Thanks to Robb Kahl for the info!

    They are all friends but that would be weird because Murph was Evan’s drummer last time around.

    that is what came to mind when I heard :)

    I remember on the first fog tour they left Chapel Hill heading straight up for Evan’s wedding where they performed some stooges tunes with Evan singing :)

    The line up for the Euro tour is:

    Chris Brokaw – guitar (formerly of Come)
    Josh Lattanzi – bass (Ben Kweller)
    George Berz – drums (J Mascis and the Fog)

    The line up will change slightly for the US dates as Josh has to head to the studio to lay down bass for Ben Kweller. Bass for the US dates……none other than the lovely Juliana Hatfield. This is the rumor at least. Seems to be the likely choice.

    His new album "Baby I’m Bored" is excellent and is out now on Bar None Records. Check out the website for tour dates. Reviews of the Euro shows have been very good.

    I have always thought it would be cool to see J and Evan work/tour together.

    No sign of the band at yesterday’s gig in Amsterdam :roll: , just Evan solo, but it was a great gig! (review coming up shortly in the "I just saw" thread…)

    Talked to ED after the gig, there was no band because the bass player had to go back to the US….

    Hey ya’ll. Been out of touch for a little while, but as it turns out you are aware that I’ve been busy. This tour has been going really well thus far. I’m diggin’ all of the other fellows in the band. Let’s just say that Chris Brokaw rules! It’s so fun at soundcheck. Today (Frankfurt) we were busting out Hendrix, Zeppelin and the Stooges. The man is a human jukebox! As for den Buck’s comments, it was a bummer that Amsterdam didn’t turn out to be a band show, but there are worse towns to have an unexpected night off in, if you catch my drift. Let’s just say that the Dutch have it right with regards to their policies on certain issues. As for the Juliana rumors, as of this posting that has been confirmed. Oh well, gotta go. Thanks for the support.

    Speaking of the ‘Human Jukebox’: At yesterday’s Berlin show Evan & his band played the following during the encore-encore-part:
    1. I’m in Love with your mum (Angry Samoans / Actually VOM as Chris Brokaw pointed out…)
    2. I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend (By…hey, you should know that – let’s just say it made a huuuuge fan of the late, great Jeffrey Hyman and Douglas Colvin veeeery happy – according to Chris again, this also was a surprise to the band!)
    3. Cortez the Killer (Neil JR., sorry, Young…with very improvised lyrics & by popular demand…)

    I know this should be in the "Baby I’m Bored" Or the "I just saw…" thread, but it seemed to fit in here so well…
    The band sounded awesome, by the way – although I couldn’t help wondering what it’d have been like w/ ol’ J hittin’ them drums…

    I hope George didn’t think I was a total weirdo (no, I wasn’t the drunk guy trying to force you to do a third encore, I was the one who asked you about future Fog plans for a URP-ian-tour, and also remarked that J & The Fog had played in the very same spot 2 1/2 years ago!)

    interesting review, Pelt Sematary, sounds like it was another great show 8) (Neil Jr :lol: )

    Well, the show certainly wasn’t a bummer, you can read my comments somewhere around here in the "I just saw…." topic.

    And you are right that Amsterdam certainly has some things to offer for an unexpected night off….. :lol: 8) :wink: (Although that may change, government is working on a law prohibiting smoking almost everywhere, including pubs, restaurants and our [in]famous "coffeeshops" :twisted: :wink: )
