The DM have decided to reunite and play the Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin Texas on the weekend of November 8-9, 2008. We’ll have Danny Stevens on bass again. Rehearsals have started and are going well. Check the festival website for updates and details. Based on what we’ve heard this is a great festival.
We had been approached back in January and Graham the promoter was persistent, even going as far as asking our producer Brian Beattie from Glass Eye to try to convince us to play. Turns out Graham was one of the kids who sang at the beginning of Beige Sunshine when we recorded Metaphysical Graffiti, one of the three records we did in Austin all those years ago. We loved Austin and decided what the heck – should be fun. Hope to see some of you there.
