Hi Keren…

how are you?? hope you did get my letter. so, I’m back from the V’N’V (just yesterday evening) & well I have to work for september but I thought (as I said) that I would write to you before ‘cos then it would take more time if I wait…

okay, I should send you a report on this event ‘cos I’ve plan to do one, so if you want you can use it. I’ll try to make it as fast as I can before I could think to something else but well with those exams stuff I hope I’ll be able to! If dates are okay (after the exams) I should go too to the lead festival (crust V’N’V fest) in mid-sept.

okay – let’s start – I won’t talk to you too much about bands as I should do a small stuff on it but well, a few would’ve pleased you I guess, like: Mainstrike, ex-manliftingbanner. they ruled so much, they have a demo out now & if ever I can get it (all were sold out there) I’ll record it for you. it was just like MLB + cool old songs from GB, Bold, chain of strength… etc. Other cool bands were the italian ones: By all means (my fave!) Timebobm… Blindfold were cool  too so were kosjerd and… the big surprise that no one were waiting for: CHOKEHOLD! They were in tour in Europe & finally came around , we learned in on the 2nd day! Some other bands weren’t that cool & was even kinda violent (surprising hey?!) anyway, you’ll know more about bands when I’ll send my ‘report’ (I hope)

The other point I’d like to talk about is a bit more personal (but I just feel like doing it). I was a bit disappointed by some people’s attitude – A few guys (& girls) I’m in touch with just didn’t come along to see me. They just […] me & this made me crazy!!

I met (at last) a couple of cool people whom I just didn’t know before, they were from USA, playing for siren (ex-engage) & they were really friendly. They should come over  to france (No that sure yet)

I also met a girl I was in touch with. I which we would have time talk a little more together on first meeting (this) was a bit “shy”. I like her a lot, her letters were really cool & so was she when we exchange them for words…

oh well..

what else could I say.. no new stuff since I don’t really want to talk about this festival (I mean, the bands) here are $10 as I told you – you can send me like 2 more tapes of it (well protected) & I’ll send you one of mu comp. if you like it & can sell it then I can send you more. I still ave one of yours left so I can only take 2 more…

sorry about this..

okay keren, I wanted to make a longest letter but I just can’t find what to talk about so I’ll end it there hoping things are better for you… & go back to work

Take care, expect more news soon,

Dear Keren

I just came back from the Alpes (hope you got the card) & get your letter here.

Well, I’m sorry again about this great delay… since I know how it is sometimes, that’s too bad. I’m sorry too that things aren’t going that well. So, I thought I would write a letter before I’m going to the belgian fest. well it’s not that much but probably, in those moments I like to get some… oh well.

You know, you said that things were going well in my world, well right now maybe because I went to cool festival & stuff. but you know, just after this I felt a bit bored again… or disappointed that it was over already – & I’m sure I’ll be fore the V’n’V fest too… That’s just because I have no friend (well no real friend) I can go to when I feel down or lonely, I mean not a friend of my own, sure there’s cool people but, they’re busy too & I cannot go & see them just when I’d like to.

Well, it’s hard to explain because it’s kinda personal and stuff but I guess you know what I mean. so, about this collective, well we just created it before the holidays so we haven’t done anything serious now. I’m a bit afraid of what it will be. I mean, not being able of telling what I want to say or so… I’ll see.

You also told me about your social relationships, well it’s kinda the same with me. I don’t have many friends, a lot are my brother’s friends & now mine (so it’s not the same), the other people I know from school are not into HC & stuff so it’s kinda boring you know! & well… my Brother sometimes drives me crazy well you’re in touch with him so maybe you see what I’m talking about. I mean it’s hard to have a private life & so on.

Oh well, the other people are pen pals (like you) & well… you know about it all it’s cool to communicate but so difficult, a letter is only a few minutes long so… well you know. Like, I’d like to come & see you now to talk about all this stuff but it’s so far away!!

Moreover a few people write just short notes every 2 months or so which is cool but well… you never know if they get the stuff, if they’re moved or whatever like, I’ve told you, I’ve lost 4-5 of my favourite pen pals with whom I was writing regularly, & just like this they disappeared… 2 were going to move, one was travelling europe & two other I don’t know about… is there anything wrong? any bad stuff that happen, an accident or whatever did they quit? I guess I’ll never know about & that’s bad. it’s as if we just stopped writing to each other right now… what will going on? you never know about… pen pals sometimes feel so far…

so… that’s bad you’re not coming to the fest. That’s also why I’m writing now. I wanted to reach you as soon as I could as you seemed bored we’re living on Thursday (in.. 2 days) so I’ll tell you about all this as soon as I can after. I really hope we’ll meet soon, maybe in the states next year if you tour there for several months. I guess we could plan something…

I guess you’re not into shitty women’s stuff (well maybe too?!) you know it happens sometimes (well at least to me) so…

well what else could I talk about?? when you’re in those moods long letters are cool I guess… there’s so much things I could tell about I’ll find back just after… & the other things see,s to personal now

Anyway, don’t worry, you weren’t boring at all, it was interesting you know well in a personal way & even if it’s boring, if it has done good to you to speak it out then I’m happy.

so well… about something totally different… the tapes – enclosed are $10 (well may be in my next letter… (yes definitely!)) for the 3 (? is that right?) tapes you’ve sent me. You told me $2 each, I’ve sold them $2.50 so here it is you can send a few more ($2.50 left right?) & I’ll trade 2 more for my comp. tapes okay?? I cannot send those now as I’m soon leaving & have no time (& tapes) to make it…

okay. so, I’ll write soon I hope.

here are your stamps >< mine you know!

okay, so hope you feel better hey?!

be sure I’ll bring a few pictures for you as you’re not able to come over.

write soon if you feel like it…

take care

xPierre

>Yann told me you were playing bass in Neikhi Naza (wrong maybe!) you wanted to play in a band hey? we;; that’s done. maybe you’ll sing too!!? No?

Dear Keren,

waaw, I’m tired. Right now we’re in the Alpes on holidays with my family. we’re walking… etc. We just have a storm now & we went windsurfing with Yann – it was real cool except Yann who broke a few stuff (Ah Ah…) so… sorry if the handwriting isn’t that good, it’s just like I have no arms anymore!

So how are you?? how about your holidays? guess you’re having fun at least I hope so-

we’ve been doing some cool stuff lately-

First off (hope I haven’t told you this before) I have to work (shit!!) more for September. I did graduate but I have a couple of stuff to do again… too bad!

Anyway we’ve done out punk pik-nik with other friends… wait wait wait… I have told you this right? with all these names, oh yeah I’m sure about this now… what about the Animal Liberation debate? just the same I guess hey?? so in fact I’ve written quite recently!

What about Dijon?? let me know & I’ll tell you about this then.

Well… I thought I had tons of cool stuff to say but it seems it isn’t the case… Anyway –

We’ll staying one more week there & after we’re going home to take a few stuff & then… the Vort’N’Vis (yeah!!)

I’d have liked to see you just about there but well… who know – maybe you’ve written while I was there, you can still get me at my number […..] just in case.

we’ll be there from 14-15 of August to 16-17 (mostly) Okay?

Oh well we’ll meet later then. Maybe in USA next summer who know??

(I’ve come back just in time!! now it’s raining hard!! hope the tent will resist!)

What about the news… well the latest I had were about nuclear test in pacific by ‘our’ great president… cool hey??

what else… I’ve lost 5 of my favourite pen pals… so that’s kinda bad I have no news from them from Christmas. why do I tell you this??  don’t know.

We’ll do some rehearsal in September as right now we’re all somewhere in different directions.

so, we’ll meet again after the holidays… even though we’re not together we’ve done one more song… Duh! This one should be against […]  if lyrics are okay with them (2 are SXE, two are not vegetarisn… yet (I hope))

Anyway, Yann’ve heard one of our rehearsal on tape (with a bad sound) & said it sound like a less better outspoken Blindfold mix… well, I don’t know.

We haven’t done anything serious by now but it should come okay-

that’s all for now

hope to hear from you soon

Take care,

Pierre.

 

7-06-1995 woaw!

Hello –

Ywah. it’s quite a great time I haven’t written.

Well, school is over now & so are my exams – I had a lot of work to do but now it’s okay – well not really… I’m waiting for the results & I know if I’ll graduate or no…

Anyway – too bad you can’t come to Europe. Well, maybe you will – don’t know yet you know you can come only in France & not go to Germany, holland & so on – but well – as you want

if ever you come here don’t worry you’ll have a place to stay & we’ll even go to shows over france:

in Julay there’s punk-HC festival & so on

here’s my phone number (I haven’t any in RENNES) ________ (+ a number to reach France) > 33

(ask for Pierre) > I should be there from Thursday to Sunday (try the evening then) or everyday in July… etc. hey – you didn’t tell me the price of you tape. well if I have any $$ left I’ll send you a few. & let me know then if it’s to much or not –

yeah… (no, just listening to colt turkey right now, hum – I’ll be back. just going to jump all over my room)

gosh it was great – so what’s up??

Here nothing really knew –

except tons of stuff –

this weekend we went to see a NYHC stuff. it was organized by a friend of us – it was with Madball, Punishable Act & Stormcore… well it’s not really my style of music but it was allright –

the atmosphere was cool even with all the machos, skins & so – no fights – I was kinda injured.

In 2 days I’m gonna see Beurk’s Band it’s kind of Reggae-Ska-Club & it’s kinda great live.

On 16th/ 17th of June we’re organizing a punk pik-nik with a pk-HC show, vegan food, records… people… etc.

so well, it should be cool.

Well going back to your trip – if ever you go to the USA where would you go??

**********************************************************************************************

Okay, No excuses about this… 12-07

can you forgive me??

Anyway (well not exactly) I didn’t really work well with my mail lately & that’s one of the first time… I guess this was laziness – I just had nothing special to say & maybe I get bored… I’ve also met some cool new people those last few weeks so it was cool to see someone for real (I guess you see what I mean) well, I’m really sorry about this,,, I know too bad how it is when you get no news from someone so…

Okay, I’ll try to do my best in this letter – as a lot of things happened this time (til the previous piece of sheet -> 7-06)-

First we did our punk pic-nic in June (16-17), then I met two new people & get close from others I knew before. so we did this stuff, we were waiting for some bands but finally only one could come without their bass player (we had no luck!) we were a bit disappointed but it finally went really well. about 60-70 persons came (we were waiting for more but well) we sold vegan food, zines, records… etc. the band (Enola Gay, from France) played a la Active Minds with only their drummer & their guitarist/ singer & it ruled! & later on a small bands were organized with people from the audience we know – so it was a real party!

We’ve lost money on oil, food & so but it was cool.

2nd day, the punk pic nic, still the same people (~60) in a cool place in the town (with garden & parks) cool atmosphere but with a shitty weather (it rains all day long… no luck again…) End of the pk-nik.

After this (12-07, 11.57 P.M) there was some events at the university during one week with debates, exibition & so on… & we organized a stuff about animal liberation with those same people, we played videos, passed on leaflet on products, information + some food (vegan)… etc – these people from paris who were at the pk-pik-nik went there too so we get a bit closer but well, it was only our friends. Brothers… who came here, people who were already vegetarian, except 5 people so it didn’t worked out very well, we were waiting for a lot of questions… but well it was the same with all the debate. People were on holidays so they don’t move anymore, that’s sad!!

I also went to the gay pride stuff with this new friend (William) to see a movie (Go fish) which I recommend to you. Kinda great. Then we went near the seaside with those people from Paris + there new friends (William & titi) & two other friends (Xavier & Sophie) we were invited by other friends (coco & yevss) (yeah, you gave me names so, you could follow this better in the future too!), we stayed for just 2 days & a night & had a lot of fun, we played music around a fire, ate cool food (cooked on fire) went into the sea & beach… gosh I wish it last longer.

After that I invited titi & william to eat (these are the two new people I’ve met) & we had fun too – we created a collective here in Rennes, called C.R.O.C.O.S. It should deal with several stuff (A.L, specism, sexism…) right now it is with titi& W. coco& yevss, Olivier & me.

after this we went to the libertarian festival in dijon for 3 days with Yann, me, Philippe, Olivier, Stephan, Coco & Yevss, Yann Dubois (Sanjam zine) & Pikta & I saw again these people from Paris & William which was cool. we slept outside (well most of us!) ate around a fire & cooked stuff again on fire.

there were cool people & cool bands: Hiatus, Unhinged, day by day, Crazy Skankers (ska), Vanilla, Schwarzeneggar… tons of records (I bought a lot…) & stuff.debates… etc.

cool but a bit tiring & really hot…

I also had my results… I get one stuff out of two & have 2-3 stuff to do again in September I get the 2nd part… (shit) but well I should graduate all the same but that’s bad anyway –

I have to work now… 😦

Next stuff should be the V’N’V festival… who know, you have my contact & tel. number so… maybe we’ll meet – it would be really cool.

I’ll end there because it’s later & just because I don’t feel like writing more, sorry about this – if you want to know more about all this feel free to ask – you know, I’m a bit happier now because I made new friends & saw cool stuff…

return stamp as always. tell me how much I owe you for the tapes please. I sold a few 15 FF ($2.50) at these events so let me know okay?

as you can see I was kinda busy lately but no excuses for not writing to you… sorry about this. Please forgive me.

Try not to do the same even if it’s my fault hey? that’s so bad I know… so hope to hear from you very soon

(on no no ink left)

take care,

see you soon,

hope everything’s all right

(good exams??)

good records??

good events??

good life??

…etc.

add whatever you want

Okay!

Well what else could I say…

I’ll try to send youo pictures if t hat’s OKAY when I get it (for your zine??…)

Did I forget something?? afraid so…

Oh well – more cool events soon I hope so I’ll have stuff to say…

love,

Pierre X

the people organized the pk pik nik & show: yevn & coco, Olivier, titi & William, Sophie & Xavier, Philippe & me.

the A.L debate: yevn & coco, titi & William, me, Olivier

went to the seaside: william & titi, me, sophie & Xavier, + people from paris (4)

went to dijon: all + more, many more (except titi… holidays)

> as you gave me names, I guess I should do the same it’s easier I guess & a bit more personal too

so you’ll know what I’m talking about (& who) in future times okay?

Til then

xxx again

and a treat to those who made it this far:

Hello Keren

well, Yann told me about your complain in his letter & when I wanted to write the day after I just get this letter… well, post offices are on strike here so maybe a letter from one of us did get lost even though it seems Not.

Anyway, you were talking about the army, well I just get a letter from it, for an apointment (medical stuff & tests & so on…) how boring!

also about school,  well, I still have 1 month left which means final exams are coming Quite Quickly & which means a lot of work to do… I don’t feel like it right now…

well, I’ll be on holidays after if all is allright… or then I’ll pass it again in September or even do it one more year if it’s bad (which I hope Not!)

well, on Sunday it’s the 1st election day for “our” new president… so we’re gonna vote for him… None have a majority now, all around 20% (3) & the others have 10 or 5% which include that our president will represent less than a quarter of the population – fuck this –

hey, Halfmast did split up… they should have their CD out still… (soon)

CIV is the name of the new GB formation (yeah, it’s the singer name), I don’t know what it’s like but I’m afraid it’s dissapointed after all those years & all Nowdays tendencies!!

Yeah, you did catch right, Shelter signed to Road- They are really stupid – same thing with Offspring, Green day, Bad religion… Rancid & pennywise should follow soon but also No use for a Name which are getting Much More Melodic than before, is on Fat Wreck & like MTV stuff you know (They May have a video on MTV!)

What else… well, Nothing great here, No shows ’til 3 Months or so, Quite no Mail… No order to put out my New distro list… etc-

Well, you’re right, theres still the band… No Nothing out yet, only a few hours of Rehearsal so… give us time, we already have 2-3 songs on their way with only 2 real rehearsal-

what’s it like… hum hard to say, hard to judge by Myself, fast HC maybe but still Melodic (??!) hey, you’re employed in the band if you want, you know I’d really like to get a female element (or more) in it unfortunately we’re one more full Male band…

Okay, it’s 7 Am (it’s always late hey?) & I don’t know what to write about don’t feel like it or… Anyway, I’ll tell you more Next… well try to.

Oh, send more (a couple) of those comp. tapes Thanx (& protect them well)

Take care

Pierre you change yours right?!)

see you soon in Europe!

>stamp… you know!

22-02-95

Hello Keren,

received your letter yesterday – it took only 2 days to get here.

well, nothing really interesting happened here since last time – it’s kinda boring

it’s already 15 mins or more I am on this sheet of paper & I just don’t know what to say… so I’m afraid its gonna be boring-

Let’s try…

what about you… do you feel better now? I understand how bored you must be with all those army stuff… I’m not really into it now… but it will come very soon, they already contact me, I’m on their list… soon they’ll ask me to come for what they call ‘the 3 days’, it’s normaly 1 day & mainly Medical tests & all this stuff with perparation, why & what you don’t want to do it & are you gonna do + stuff on a career in the army… etc

as I’m a student I’ll be able to make it 6th[?] you know but I’d rather not making it at all. I need quite a big stuff to be reformed… so instead of 1 year in the army I’ll give 2 years for ‘civil service’ fooo!

(hey it’s coming no…)

Hey, Both time you write me & you have fight (huge) with your parents… too bad – how is it going now? are you still living with your parents or do you have your own apartment? well I guess how it can sometimes be with  parents, as far as I’m concerned, it’s mainly with stuff lie vegetarianism/ veganism, music & just some ideas on politics. They can hardly understand some stuff (I guess it’s because they’re not used to it). well anyway – sometimes it’s really okay to, they know what we want to do/ mean.

Okay, just don’t pay too much attention to it.

Well, I’m glad you enjoyed the tape. I think all the bands that were on it were stuff I liked a lot too bad that Shortsight did split up… well they’ve released a 12″ just before & it should be out soon.

Gosh, someone else did see the picture hey… damned I’m done well my only solution is to kill you all now… hum I know wait a few years, I’m gonna prepare myself in the special Branch of the Army hey? No you’re right that’s stupid.

So you’ve bought tons of stuff… that’s cool! (well at least for you) – lately it’s the same thing with me… all my money has gone into music! for distro or for myself. As there was nothing else to do & as I […] so I’m just listening to music, writing to people & working for university (I’ve got 1 week of holidays right now but I’ve exams soon too so it’s not really holidays!)

hey, what about NRA CD… is it their new one or the 1st one? as I’ve told you (I think) they’re really cool guys. About Nekhei Naatza I know their EP, Yann DuBois, from SANJAM zine did give it to me, he’s in touch with N.N & got their EP this way – he’s interviewed them for his 3rd zine… & you’re right, this EP is great!

About your zine, well, don’t worry I’ll pass your message (not Massage) on (just kidding hey) As for me… well if you want perhaps I could send you review of records I’ve listen to – let me know if you want it to be SXE, HC, PK or whatever – for interview… well, if bands send back a few I’ve done I’ll give them to you but I cannot promise anything as it’s quite along time now – Also I don’t think I’m gonna make new, just don’t feel like doing it as I get no real answer 0 well if you have ? you can send them.

if you want – About articles… well I don’t really have time & too afraid being bad so… well if I’m fed up with something or if I change my mind I’ll let you know – what I can do now is review article for you –

Well, send 3 or so of your tape when you can it’s okay – $2.50 is good price. please protect them well I can return stamps you know.

Did you like 108 cd? they;re krishna.. I didn’t really enjoyed it – seems like shelter have signed on Roadrunner (Ah Ah Ah)

Well – I too won’t be able to go to USA this year so it’ll be next summer for sure – let me know if ever you come to Europe if you know the countries I’ll try to find you addresses/ places – if you come to France well you could stay here & then perhaps come with us to the belgian fest – I don’t have any news from it. I’m just waiting for some. Perhaps there’ll be bands like Blindfold, Spawn, feeding the fire again & other like refused & more of course… I don’t know

Just tell me what you want to do. Right now I’m looking for a job to earn money during holidays, then go (probably) to Belgium –

Okay, Now I really have nothing more to say – hope you can read me…

take care Keren – write soon! pls stamp…

xPierrex

>Yann is working on his new newsletter, he said he’ll write later… here’s the message.

23-01-95 (the day of Army office no? AAAArgh!)

[sorry about the handwriting… I write for a long time! hope you can understand anyway!]

hello keren.

Thank a lot for the so long letters! + the tape. it’s really cool. I’ve enjoyed it even if I’ve listened it to it once because of all the recordings I had to do (including your tape)… so I just had No time for listening to it more… but it seems great. really.

I’ve been lucky to get this tape ‘cos the envelope was all scratched & the box damaged luckily the tape wasn’t broken. Just try to protect it more, post office sucks this way. My brother received 2 weeks ago 2 7″ well protected in a box & they were completely Broken!

Okay – I gave your letter to my brother, even though I’d rather not to for various reasons – just don’t pay attention. Anyway – Enclosed should be a few issues of his latest Newsletter, perhaps he’ll write later if he can. this year he has much more work & right now (these weeks he has exams)well you will understand by reading the Newsletter anyway!

So tons of events happened to you hey?

Did you finally start your ‘zine?

so did you buy all those stuff you wanted with your money??

Lately I had tons of New stuff.

CD’s, 10″, 7″, LP’s which I like alot. Old & new things. I get some with my distro which is cool cause I can se a bit of money!!

I’ve put some of the tape I’m sending to you (like: congress, Boot down the door…) about Spawn I’ve put you the 7″ (New) too as you’ve asked for it – I just get it in distro, I’m sorry last song is cut… it’s from my tape I didn’t have enough place for it & didn’t keep any for me (I cannot afford to keep copy of everything I get!)

I should get soon: Manliftingbanner & Brotherhood CD’s!!! in distro sure, I’ll keep one for me so if you want me to record it on tape or if you want original cd’s, we could work out something for sure!

Also on your tape is: Colt turkey, perhaps you already know it… if Not sure you’ll like it. it’s what Manliftingbanner has done (well one of the things before MLB (it’s against X-mas & the murder of turkey – sleeve is great! they’ve made it for gun)

oh, well happy birthday! I’ve forgotten. Okay, let’s say the tape is about it & also some other things I’ll try to enclosed.

it seems like you didn’t really enjoyed that time that much?

so hope your exams went well…

Did you went to the army office? I’ve heard about this event that happened 1-2 days ago with this ‘human bomb’ suicide & murders.

if I am right it happened on young people… too bad. I really can’t understand all this, okay it’s not the same thing in my country but religion sucks too. I don’t like fanaticism (I guess you don’t like either!)

The more things like this happen the more I hate Religious stuff for all its bullshit & Murders, I wonder how much death were & are still caused by religion

Murder, war… in name of God! tsss.

About your zine… well who know maybe sometime I could contribute (if I feel like it & just have time… I guess you know how it is!) if you could tell me a bit more like things you’ll like to get (subjects… etc) so I could see if I can help.

Also about your newsletter/ compilation tapes, if you want sure I could help you distributing some around here in my catalogue.

For Newsletter if they’re free send a few issues when it’s out & I’ll pass them on. For tapes (comp or whatever) well I don’t have much money left but you could send 2-3 (or more in the future if it works) & tell me your price & I’ll pay you if I sell them or then I’ll just return them.

So let me know if you’re interested!

About Zips & Chains… well we don’t distribute it, maybe we had a few issues but it’s gone… Anyway. I keep your $3 & I’m gonna find you an issue of it from a guy I know & send it to you as soon as I’ll get it.

Well, here we had 2 HC shows (it’s coming a bit more now) first one were with 3 French Bands

The 1st was mostly noisy which was bad, 2nd was a mix of Rock/ Ska/ HC melodic, it was cool but As there was too much [?] it was a but strange. The Third one was really great. Powerful HC Melodic really nice, they played two [?] set after the people were shouting after them. the atmosphere was cool except a lot of smoke inside (I hate this)

2nd show was with (initialy) NRA (from holland) & Apartment 36 (ex. poison idea), we’re already seen NRA in October or so & really wanted to see APT 36. Unfortunately for some problem they had to go back to USA…

instead there was another band from holland, they played first, it wasn’t really good, basic HC melodic. Only their son from GB and Beastie boys were cool. NRA were great again. faster than before & really nice kids. we’ve talk with them again after & they told us tons of stories (they knew Manliftingbanner, Seein’ Red… they’re friends!) & also told us about tour with NOFX & trouble they did get with them (they hate majors & on more than 20000FF they only get 1000 FF!!) & threw a brick on NOFX van, said fuck to Epitaph who wanted to sign with them… & more. it was cool!

Okay – about the distro now, well perhaps I could help you first I could distro some of your stuff if you want to, & I could also get you European stuff & US stuff if you’re interested (7″, LP’s, zines…)

7″s would be around $2 to $2.50, I don’t have uge stocks but I have friends who can get cheap stuff for me but it depends alot from time to time so I can’t really tell you what stuff now!

[…. the list goes on – K]

Okay p I’m gonna quit –

oh yeah, about my plans: well I’m afraid I won’t be able to go to US this summer ‘cos I won’t have enough money… Next year sure!!

Instead I’ll try to find a job to earn money this summer + in August > go to the New SXE festival in Belgium! if you ever want to come to france, you won’t have to worry about a place to stay – Also I could show you around-

Let’s see, if you’re interested by france we could then organize something with the Belgian fest too! (should be again bands like: Blindfold, spawn, Feeding the fire + US/ European bands + the Jedi (ex. N.O. Fire – Shortsight & more)…

Well we’ll see.

Take care, write soon.

pls return stamps.

Pierre.
