OCTOBER 09/2000Hudson played an excellent show this past Saturday at the Little Fernwood. There had to be at least 10 times as many people as last week's AK47 gig! Everybody seemed to have a good time (I know Jamie, Dave and Tony did), lots of singing along, and it was nice to see Dave bring back the CD give-away. (Maybe some Urgent Response CDs will be given away at future shows?).
No firm date for the next show, but there may be another HM and/or AK47 gig before the end of October.
Bored? (like I was) - Post on the new Hudson Mack Message Board!
SEPTEMBER 18/2000NEXT SHOW OCTOBER 7th at THE LITTLE FERNWOOD, VICTORIA
The proposed Friday September 22nd show at The Back Porch in Oak Bay is NOT happening.
The CD's been out for a few weeks now, if you haven't picked it up yet ... what are you waiting for?! It's 65 minutes of magic from Hudson Mack and AK47, lyric sheet enclosed so you can sing along at the next show!
And speaking of AK47 .... Jesse's back in town, so the chances of a show in the upcoming months are looking better.
AUGUST 18/2000Dave's been on my case to udate the site, so here I go.... sorry for not announcing the last gig (Aug. 14) at the Little Fernwood. A small turn-out, and one the worst bands in the world (*my* opinion - and no, I won't take it back) made it an "interesting" show.
NEXT SHOW - AUGUST 24 - LITTLE FERNWOOD
And now the big news..... THE CD IS READY!... 65 minutes of punk-rock goodness on a shiny silver disc! Be sure to bring a couple of extra bucks to the next show to pick one up (or two - they make a great gift!). This will be THE album of the year!!! If you can't make it to the show, I'm pretty sure Lyle's and Ditch will be selling them. And there will be mail order info up here as well, ... as soon as I get my act together (sorry Dave!)
The CD master is at the pressing plant in Vancouver, and
it looks like the first week of August is when Dave will get the "freshly
Cheers, Hudson Mack
The Band's response
Hi Hudson! It's the guys from Hudson Mack the band (obviously)! Thank you for the e-mail, a pleasant surprise. You have officially christened our web site. Regarding your request about doing a story on us- we'd love to. You probably noticed on our web site that we are about to release our fourth cd. As soon as we receive them , we will personally deliver an autographed copy (hehehe). It's always nice to hear about the people who listen to us and support us. It gives us great incentive to carry on as a band. It may also interest you to know that in the six years that we've been together, we have never played in a bar, only all-ages venues. The reason being, simply; everyone can attend. Playing in a liscensed venue would exclude people under the age of nineteen, who, are our main supporters. Futhermore, most of the gigs we play are benefits for various causes. Thanks once again for not suing us and being a good sport.We look forward to hearing from you ! hm
Mr. Hudson Mack's reply
for the note. I'm waiting until you're international superstars before
I sue! HA HA. Please let me know when the 4th CD is out -- that's a hook
for a story. Or your next live gig -- I like your all-ages policy. HHM
Hudson Mack played (by all accounts) an amazing show last Saturday (June 17th) at The Little Fernwood. It was there first show in Victoria in quite a while, and who knows when the next one will be? They were slated to open up for No Means No on Canada Day, but when that show was moved from the Curling Rink to The Icehouse, Hudson Mack backed out. Why? Hudson Mack have a *very* strong policy of only playing "all-ages" shows (as the curling rink gig would have been). The Icehouse (as you may or may not know), is a "bar", so "adults" only. But don't worry, I'm sure HM will be playing very soon.
can see, the site is under going some changes (including
a guestbook)... just me being bored!
The big news however is that the the final mixing of the new CD (to be called PEOPLE FOR PEOLPE) is done! All that's left to be done now is final mastering and pressing of the actual disc. Oh and little things like artwork and lyrics - which I'm sure will be available here before the CD is out.. Dave and I have also talked about making several of the songs that were recorded but didn't make it onto the new CD available as exclusive mp3 downloads through this site or somewhere like MP3.com.
