Well, we're back. We've got about 2000 pictures and 26 hours of digi-video footage, and THAT's gonna take a while to sort out. (There's few newly-liberated clips just below.) :-) But when we finally do, it should yield enough decent concert footage and "Spinal Tap" style antics to please even the most jaded viewer.

Here's some stuff from the Hamburg show on the last week of the tour:

7 Powers


Summertime


Skinny Ties


Miles of Ocean



Meanwhile--while we wait for the full-fledged "rock-u-mentary" (next year in Jerusalem) please see the TOUR DIARY,(soon to be migrated here, with addition of pictures) that spans January 18 to February 22...

IN OTHER NEWS: Deily "Bearish" on Stateside Music Fans

"Bearded, like a G-dless foreigner." (UPI)

BOSTON, MA--Upon setting foot on American soil once more here at Boston's Logan International Airport, former C-list "rockstar" Ben Deily was heard to mutter: "Good to be back here...ya worthless, tasteless savages."

"Hah. I'd take one Spaniard or German over a truckload of you Brittany-obsessing, America's-best-top-sucking miserable pinheaded insipid vulgar barbarian philistines...[inaudible]..."

Analysts conclude that Deily was pleased by his reception on a recently-completed 25-city European tour with current musical ensemble VARSITY DRAG--and perhaps concomitantly dispirited at the current state of domestic music and music fans back in the United States.

Spying a gaggle of youth by the baggage claim area, Deily exclaimed "As I live and breath! What are you all doing out and about...has the eastern seaboard lost power? Was the Wii recalled? Have your Matrix-pods vomited you out or something?"

Cupping his hands to approximate a bullhorn, the highly crotchety aging "musician" continued: "Please return to your electronic porch rockers and resume whittling, and waiting to die of morbid obesity. There's nothing to see out here."

(Deily says there are no immediate plans for a North American tour.)
