On Tour With Crank County Daredevils

Sometimes its just nice to dig through old photos and remember nights that really stick with ya. On this particular night we had just pulled into Bilbao, Spain after playing some ratty squat house in Toulouse, France the night before. The clubs and atmosphere were worlds apart and it was as if Spain had welcomed us with open arms. The club was huge and was sold out with a capacity close to 800. Also on the bill were the alt country rockers the Bottle Rockets. They turned out to be great guys and we all got to enjoy a hearty dinner in Basque country. Damn, what a great show by the fellas in Crank County Daredevils and holy shit can those crazy Basque folks drink, guess that's why Mikey had to drop one guy in the club and Billy ended up knocking a guy out the next night. Why in the hell is a mix of Coke and Wine their drink of choice? This will forever baffle me as the taste made me think my teeth were going to fall out.
