They are the perfect band to take a date to, and are a great alternative to the shows I usually go to. I was happy to get to see them at Frucon this past February.

How you forget

o/~ swimming pooooooooooooool of crisis o/~

*snort* But still.. Trumpet!Tory! UprightBass!Murray! Piano!Jeff! You can't go wrong with the
Lesters :) (For Jian you'd have to put side project*s* anyway, besides Play there's supposed
to be another show (not live) showing on CBC in Jan and Feb.. plus the solo cd (which he may
eventually finish), plus being Martina's manager)

C'mon!!! Have you seen this man live??? The guitar becomes an extension of his body. He is brilliant. Not to mention the nicest guy. and sometimes he has Murray play bass for him. which just adds to the overall goodness.

Go Dave! we -all- know he rocks the casbah.

I picked Dave, because I LOVE his record, but when Mike does his CD we can have another poll and add him to it. ;-)

Bole is the name the lads used when they were road testing songs for Wood, so that they wouldn't need to put up with a million screaming girls throwing their bras onstage during Down From Above.
lawrence Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
o/~ whether bras from screaming girls or the threat of god's love, there'll always be something that's raining...... o/~

what I want to know is if they ever played Sad Today or Bed and Breakfast on that "tour."

but didn't anyone realise quickly that it was Fruvous, and like, let everyone else know? or was that more of a challenge then, given that the internet wasn't what it is now?

Talcott Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
o/~ now there's a bra, upon your forehead o/~

Maybe they were completly incognito. I'm sure Mike probably had a big hat, and sunglasses, and Jian might have put streaks in his hair or something. Maybe Murray and Dave even cut their hair (Dave more than Murray)

Um...yeah...well, it amused me at least ;)
A.J. Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I always assumed that they just didn't play any Fruvous material when they played as Bole, so even if someone did recognize them, it wouldn't be worth telling all their teenybopper friends to go see them because they were just playing depressing wood music. Also I don't think they really "toured" much as Bole, just played some dates fairly close to home.

Disclaimer: I actually know nothing of the Bole era. All of the forgoing is merely my educated conjecture.

I could proceed to list the myriad reasons I love Dave's solo album, but I'd rather just pop it in and have a nice long listen.
bored, bored, bored.... · 18 years, 10 months ago
Fordy's planning a CD of the Canadian history stuff he's been doing. The songs are supposed to be great, and some fabulous musicians are excited about singing/playing on it. Personally, I can't wait. You just -know- it's going to be awesome!
funky munky · 18 years, 10 months ago
gotta love the hair !! :)
Dakota Belle · 18 years, 10 months ago
My heart will always belong to Jian. He's so dreamy. :*) I love his solo stuff, even if he did make a lousy boy. His new songs are so gorgous. I LOVE MY JIAN! - Ji girl forever Dakota

p.s. Kiss Me Jian!

I agree Jian is very talented. But...Dave! Jian is very...extroverted and wild, but Dave is so laid back and calm and cool. And he has such great use of metaphor!

o/~ It's a lazy sunday morning, and I'm trying to sleep in, you're running around like Santa's only elf...aint it funny, you remind me of myself o/~

Dave-o's still the King. of Spain -AND- FruLand :)
