RW: Wait until they're trying to get the lighting right on Ginger ...

EC: (laughs) It can't be done ... he always looks green, no matter what they do ... well, he is!

RW: ... a few pounds for that gig, now ?

EC: oh, it's full, yeah, it's gonna happen ...

RW: what's the date?

EC: I think it's the 4th and the 5th, or is it the 3rd and the 4th ... it's like ... oh there are? ... I think it's two days, and a day off, and another two days ... it's only four shows

RW: Third and Fourth of what?

EC: May, I know it's the first week of May ...

RW: fantastic

EC: huh?

RW: I said, fantastic ...

EC: will you be around?

RW: oh, I wouldn't miss it for anything ...

EC: (laughing) just to see the look of AGONY on my face ...

RW: (laughs)

EC: I don't know ... I am gonna have to get all those records and ... revise everything ... there's enough good stuff ...
