Mail from Glenn:
Long time no contact...... Sorry 'bout that. I've been busy with h17 album and also very bloody busy with the Honeyroot stuff. We have been getting the tracks ready for live (what a job) and it's taken us quite some time, but were just about there.
I see from the site that you have been told about the upcoming 93 feet east gig, it should be a really good night.... a few surprises. One of which I thought Imight share with you now. Not even Martyn or ian know about this - yet.
'State Of Mind' the Honeyroot track needed a certain something when we were looking to perform it live and in a moment of blind luck, which i prefer to call genius.... I started to sing 'Fascist Groove Thang' over it. So whadya know here it is Honeyroots 'Fascist State Of Mind'.
I thought you might want to put it on the site, let the fans hear it.... and Martyn and Ian come to that.
Hope to see loads of you at the Honeyroot 93 feet east gig. Let me know what you think to the track.
