Big Muff Dies after 3000 km
I cruised into Burns Lake after an intense weekend of folking and rocking in Kispiox. Big Muff puffed some smoke and then came to a halt outside the bank. I knew what it was...alternator. Not a big deal really. Painting Daisies' previous van went through 3 in one touring season. I think this one may be the original from 1981 so good on 'er for going this long. It was a quiet and lonely drive without the band in the back. I had to find my Little Feat tape and crank it. Kispiox was an extremely fun festival with the best dance crowd yet this year. We did all of our moves and more. We also had the joy of having Graham Guest on keys for an added texture. Thanks Graham #2.
Prior to Kispiox was the Discovery Coast Music Festival in Bella Coola. I had the joy of meeting Buffy Saint-Marie and learning about her busy and inspiring life. Marshal Boucher was our low end for this go and Graham Roby (drummer boy) was able to fly from L.A. for the occasion. I am not writing with flow tonight as I am falling asleep so shall carry on tomorrow.
