A Postcard from Switzerland
It’s August in the Swiss Alps and you should be here with me. I’m astounded at the sheer beauty of the white-capped peaks and the waters run clear and fresh. The engine strains as we climb the Julierpass towards St.Moritz. Last night was Gams and we’ve been beaten into silence by two girls yodelling onstage (our clumsy blues-rock was nevertheless rewarded by cherry brandies) . We’ve played on an island in an electrical storm, up in the mountains near Innsbruck and at a cowboy club near Stuttgart (don’t ask). The Rheinfalls at Schauffhausen heaved with tourists and Lindau was pretty, Lichtenstein was gridlocked with Austrian lorries and Garmisch felt like being home (or maybe it was just the beer). One more tonight, then we’ll say goodbye to Muhlehorn and the Walensee and set the wheels for home. You should have been here with me.
