Hola, Compadres

Frank the Baptist will be playing in Frankfurt at Das Bett Friday May 18th (in 2 weeks) and then will disappear for a long time to work (Finally) on the next album.

Frank The Baptist WILL NOT... I repeat... WILL NOT be playing at The Blackfield Festival.

The Frankfurt show is the last show for a long while so go there for our sendoff into the unknown territories of the craziness that happens to get an FTB record done.

Bis bald,
Captain Crunch

Ok... Sandra Wochele mentioned a line from another poem that reminded me of this one so I have to post it. Roll up your sleeves folks, there's work to be done.
"It Couldn't Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
... That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.” - Edgar A. Guest

Now that I've had some time to breathe it's time to update the pages, I've uploaded photos from last Sunday's Frank The Baptist show, put on by Hidden Treasure Music on the FTB facebook page. It was the best Chameleons show I've ever seen and we had a blast playing. The new songs (Which made up half of the set) were far better received than expected, good motivation to put out the new album. A big thanks to Ian P. Christ, Ina Diocan, Thomas Mixmeister for the sound, The Audience (Who were FAR too kind) and especially our cronies who got on stage for the sing along in "If I Speak". You'll see their mugs on the stage in the photos.
