Happy New Year! I am writing to you from a place called : “Webzone” on Astor Place in New York City. It has been raining and the air is cool and fresh. I slept until 3pm and made light food, showered, and walked the city alone as I reflected on the last 7 days here which seemed to go by as if in a dream. Last night was good. I went to former Swans bass player , Algys Kizys annual New Years Eve party out in Brooklyn in the company of 3 friends. It was just great to be with people with whom I share so much history. Alex Hacke from Einsterzende Neubauten was there with his wife Danielle. Also Vinnie Signorelli (former Swans drummer) was a guest as well as old friends Ruth Parsons (Swans drummer Ted Parsons’ ex-wife) and Fabio Roberti (filmed the Swans : Love Of Life video)… AT midnight, I was given the duty to pop the cork on a bottle of pink champagne. I had a little towel in my hand ready to catch the cork…Al counted us down….POP! But the BEST part of all? An explosive sexy French kiss . : -) When we left Brooklyn on the train, it was a LOT of fun. It was crowded and people were somewhat drunk and had been partying. (A cheer and applause had gone up as the L train pulled into the station to take us back to MANHATTAN !!!!!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU! I AM GOING TO RECORD THE MOST INTENSE ALBUM OF MY CAREER THIS YEAR!

SO GET READY! HAHHHHHA!!! MWARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
