Holy smokes, it’s already February – does not the time fly? – and things are starting to heat up! Mr. Plaskett is vacationing somewhere warm and gathering strength for the launch of the new Canadian album, the soon-to-be classic, Ashtray Rock. Before I digress, I just want to make it perfectly clear that the aforementioned Ashtray Rock is an actual place, as opposed to some other mental image you might be conjuring up…

Much, much more on that front later. This is actually a post to give the world travellers amongst you (lucky dogs) an update on the Emergency’s touring plans for the land down under. As you may, or may not know, the very cool folks at Code One records in Australia are releasing what, in this country, would be known as a “Best Of” Joel Plaskett Emergency album as I write. It’s going to be called Make A Little Noise and it will include the DVD, that we’re familiar with in this country, as a bonus! It doesn’t suck to be Australian right now, believe me… As an FYI, this is the track listing for this package…

Nowhere With You, Work Out Fine, Maybe We Should Just Go Home, Extraordinary, Down At The Khyber, Million Dollars, Radio Fly, You Came Along, Waiting To Be Discovered, Clueless Wonder, Mystery In Crime, Come On Teacher, True Patriot Love, Make A Little Noise, Light Of The Moon… AND, they get the DVD thrown in for good measure!
