    Yes we do, I haven't read anything about it but there are tours. And I heard that we (Edmonton) bought the rail cars from Japan and restored them, to full functional use. One day I will take the tour. Great post by the way this band sounds pretty good I may start listening to them.

    Got to listen to the rest of their new album – 15 songs. It incredible! I loved every song and the more I listen to it the more I like it! Really, this album could be compared to the Beatles Abbey Road or Fleetwood Mac Rumours for the satisfaction you get out of it. Most records I buy with great anticipation only to find out there are 3 good songs on the album and the rest is filler crap. Great variety, execution and creativity all on one album. Ya gotta get your hands on their new CD – money well spent

    Hey, did you give the new Short of Able CD a listen? Was at the CD release party in Edmonton – they put on a great show – very talented bunch. It's now on itunes and their website – you can get a taste of what they're about there.
