  1. check the year. you made a mistake.

  2. Guess I’m buying tickets to the Austin show!

  3. Do we need another Chams live album? At what point do we say enough? What we need is for Mark to call Dave and bury the hatchet. Do one last tour and call it a day. Stop flogging the Chameleons around the world playing the same songs despite how great those songs are.
