First off, I (Julia) have no money, as the Tax Man took it all, seriously ALL OF IT, which means hiring Piano Keyboards is going to be tough. IF YOU HAVE A PIANO, and LIVE IN ANY OF THESE PLACES, can I borrow it for a night? I promise to treat it to the finest silks, shower it in autumn kisses, and play it gently and in a completely non-violent way 😉 I use a Yamaha P120, which is pretty old and battered, but I like the tone. But anything with a weighted hammer action will do. Of course I’m going to have to hire in some places, but I thought some of you MIGHT be ok with sharing. If you can HELP, PLEASE… MESSAGE/ COMMENT/ TWEET @theindelicates
Second off: IF YOU ARE SKILLED, and in one of the towns we are playing, we might like you for a song or two. In the past we’ve had trumpeters, accordionists, saw players, fiddle players, and generally kiss anyone who wants to play the drums for us. If this is you, and you like us, and you’re interested, we should HOOK UP @theindelicates
SUPER SPECIAL EDTIONS – Last year we had people buying £300 (Approx $479) Super Special Editions of our Songs For Swinging Lovers album. It was so successful we’ve decided to offer it again on this tour. We come to your house/ cafe/ library/ venue/ garden and we play a set for you, of anything you like really (NO STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN), we RECORD the performance, and then HAND OVER THE RIGHTS in that recording TO YOU. With a GOddamn CONTRACT and everything. It’s pretty cool, and we love doing it. A few people who’ve bought it have a number of people pay a certain amount, like a gig, and make their money back that way. If you want this, as I know already a number of you do, please look at our TOUR DATES first and see where there are gaps. We should be able to accomodate most of you, and if all goes well we’ll be back next year to accomodate the WEST COAST (and Vegas 🙂 )
ALSO BE ADVISED THAT WE HAVE TO DRIVE BACK FROM CHICAGO TO bOSTON at the END OF THE TOUR to FLY HOME. so if you want a Super Special Edition AFTER THE TOUR, and ESPECIALLY if you can offer us somewhere to rest our indelicate limbs for the night, and ESPECIALLY if you make awesome FOOD, WE WILL COME. Those who can offer food and bed are MUCH RECQUIRED, and will be REWARDED with exciting things.
YOU HAVE ONE WEEK TO DECIDE IF YOU WANT A SUPER SPECIAL EDITION, because of logistics. @theindelicates on Twitter
AMERICA. CONTACT US. WE ARE HERE. WE ARE READY.
