Our U.S. tour with Run On is a little slow out of the gate, 19 years ago today. New soundman Mick Learn has come highly recommend, though if we’ve ever met, it was only in passing while we were playing his home town of Portland, Oregon. When he’s late for soundcheck at the Grog Shop in Cleveland, we call him for his ETA and find out he thinks the tour begins tomorrow. Fortunately for all concerned, he’s visiting relatives nearby. We welcome Rick Brown by encoring with “Let’s Compromise,” by one of his old bands, Information.
