Hello! To all of those long lost subscribers to The McMenamins mailing list!
The last newsletter I reported the birth of my first Daughter Lila. Well now there are four little McMenamins running around. We have multiplied quickly.
Simon's has had two now - a girl and a boy and my second little girl Hope Alice Sunshine came in August last year.
After a big long break we are back in our home town with a string of gigs to announce but only for our home town audiences for now.
So please check out the gig guide if you are any where near Cairns in the The Far North in the next two months - otherwise we hope to report a new album and a new tour in the not too distant future.
Sept 2007 saw us take out the Q Song ABC Regional Award for 'How It Is" and "what it takes" from the same album "In this light" was in the finals for the same award in 2008.
Then of course our tour of QLD with The Waifs in late 2007 was a great fun ride playing to some fantastic crowds. We are receiving some good steady support from regional ABC radio stations which is great. So please don't forget about us and continue your support for us too in any way you can.
My husband and I have just settled in a little town an hour south of anywhere and have spent four months renovating. Our humble but very comfy little house in our rainy little town is proving a wonderful home for our girls.
Thanks again for subscribing and don't forget you can unsubscribe at any time - though I know for a fact you are certainly not receiving many of these updates as we have been so busy and off the scene. But we are slowly creeping back up (while being careful not to wake the children.. shhh..)
Luv to ya'll.
