Well Sun Ra I guess needs no introduction, an incredible musician with a massive output who surrounded himself with some of the best players ever. I obviously never got to see Sun Ra, and so far have never managed to see the Arkestra. The times they have toured Australia we’ve been in different cities doing other stuff. As fate would have it, I’m going to miss them again as we leave early Sunday morning.
We actually just played a festival in Europe with Brian Wilson, but I was so fucked from jet-lag I took a “nap” before he played and slept for 15 hours. All accounts were that it was incredible. I dunno how I feel about it, will be interesting to see.”
See Royal Headache Saturday on the Blue Stage at 2:45 p.m.
