WE'RE back home in Brisbane, still alive and grateful for it ... For a variety of reasons (exhaustion, illness, constant driving mainly) this blog has been neglected for the last 10 days of the tour. When I get over the worst jetlag I've ever experienced, as well as this cough that just won't leave me alone, I'll make a few more entries on the tour to round things off.
For those of you wanting more, a book documenting the tour has been commissioned by the good folk at University of Queensland Press. This I aim to complete by the end of the year, for publication in early 2013 - hopefully around the time HITS are ready to release their second album, and in anticipation of the band's second European tour. Yes, they've been invited back!
I'll also be resuming blogging on more day-to-day matters soon.
Thanks for following our adventures, and to any of you who may be reading, special thanks to all the wonderful new friends we met in France: for their generosity, hospitality, and for keeping the spirit of rock & roll alive, we love you all.
On a personal note, I'd also like to publicly thank Tamara, Richie, Gregor, Stacey and Andy for letting me be part of the whole grand adventure. I love you all, too.
