Opening your North American tour in St. Paul, Minnesota is a brilliant move. We Minnesotans always got them and loved them and I wish I could be there. But, again, my complaints will fall on deaf ears. Doesn't anyone play Austin anymore? Damn, people.

It's great to have the Mary Chain out on the road, though. The fact that they have a new album on the way is also good news.
