The Winks fall into the ocean...

That's it, folks, the Winks are off on their cross-Canada adventure, from which Todd and Tyr will not return (for a long time, anyhow) -- they're relocating to Montreal. My interview with the band is here! A great last show, with smoking confetti, a tapdancing Tyr, circular balloon art and a final closing cover of "These Boots are Made for Walkin'" (I was rootin' for "Expressway to Yr. Skull" but I like surprises, too). The illustration is the bartender and his wife, by Todd and his friend Marek Bula -- see this month's Discorder for a print copy of it and an explication of "Snakes!" (An updated version of which appears on "Birthday Party," the new album, which is due in stores on November 14th). Safe voyages, Winks -- we will see you again, I am sure...!
