cause it’s short and sweet as a title, and cause I miss pelt 'gography' on the keyboard, so to avoid any further confusion on the pronunciation...

 

When I get stopped on the streets of my hometown, the question I get asked most often has to be, "But Brush, you have so many international fans, how do you find time to see them all?". Well, my cherubs, the unfortunate truth is, we don’t get to see ALL of them (you know where we are if YOU want to pay a visit) but we do what we can to-FOR who we can.. Why, only the other day, we were all sitting around the fireplace, swirling a tumbler of Courvoisier, indulging in reminiscences from our travels. Aah, it takes me back. Here are a couple of gems for ya...
Over the years, we've spread our wings to fly abroad to preach the message of The Enemies-a message of peace, lurve and all that jazz. We had regular stints in England for years with many wild tales of abandon and drunken debauchery (depending on who's reading this, you MIGHT need to switch that last sentence for, "...with many FINE tales of banter, junk and archery"-I don’t know, throw me a bone, there aren't too many words that sound like 'debauchery').. Ill have to leave that particular chapter for the biography. It’ll give me more time to re-ignite the beer-sodden brain cells, as well as make up some more stuff... For now, cheers for the (lack of) memories, Gerry and the gang

We've also toured Italy-well, we've played there a couple of times but more than once counts as a tour so shove it. Everyone telling us that we were staying practically beside the Colosseum, not being able to find it, then casually spinning by it in a taxi at 2.00a.m. was just one sober example (ahem).
One year we ended up in Portugal for a gig. However it happened, a good time was had by all, playing tunes, soaking up the sun and getting into heated debates with Irish T.V. presenters over the state of Irish radio, or something (never discuss religion, politics, or your favorite member of Boyzone. Stick to something simple, like the weathergirls)...
Cyprus was good fun, playing at what must have been most of the whole town's population, including the mayor, who's now a big fan (so I've been told-I’m not up to date with my Cyprishish). I cant say for certain that the crowd was there for us-there was some fella in a tuxedo and a girl in a long white dress who insisted on hogging the limelight-but everyone was in such a good mood that they must’ve been..
And of course, this year we took a trip to America...but that's a story for another day :)
