In the next month or so, we'll be setting up band member blogs. It will take a little time for The Slackmaster General (yours truly) to get it up and running. Shortly after that, you will be treated to the rants, raves, inspiration, pain, sorrow, joy, love and angst that is The Church of Slack. Maybe Vic will go all stream-of-consciousness on us and talk about talking cats and ladybugs. Dig that.
Anywayz, stay tuned kids, 'cause we got some more tricks up our sleeves :-)
The Slackers are finishing up their Southern Tour. Thanks for all the fans that have been posting their photos up on the Flickr Group! We love to see them :-)
