I 'm leaving for Cognac on Tuesday, I'll be there until Sundaymorning, I'll be catching as many gigs as possible AND playing some - been invited to sit in by some guys I know who are playing a local bar, any of you going to be out there?

Enjoy yourself, Cognac is a lovely little town and the festival always rocks.
Haven't been for a couple of years, maybe I'll make it down next year.

I must say I had the greatest time: met nice people, played some good music, heard some great music in other bars around Cognac... I'll be there again next year!

Ah le Canton, they do great chips!
Me & Mousey played there a couple of times, what a fantastic little spot.
Christian's a cool cat too.
