"The support on all the UK & Dutch dates is Bee and Flower as advertised
nationally. Check them out It was originally going to be Paula
Frazier who they often back but due to pressing matters she had to
withdraw. Lisa Papineau of Big Sur will be doing many of the European

Dana from Bee and Flower may be known to some trainspotters as being a member of AMC for one show back in '94. The band decided to tour the US with Danny on guitar but after the first show he decided he preferred the bass. Dana had quit her university place and job for that tour so now she is out for blood some 14 years later."

New Mini-Documentary

As mentioned in the comments of a previous post there is a great little video about one of Mark Eitzels trips to Ireland here. It was done by a company called Areaman and is a behind the scenes look at the making of one of the TV appearance that you used to be ble to find on YouTube. Note, you need the latest version of Quicktime to play it and I couldn't get it working in IE7.

Anyone know why Mark is so popular in Ireland? He has played a lot of shows there recently.
