Ditto on your sentiments about Hardship Post. I barely caught the last 
song they performed at Edgefest 3 which I regret and I was really hoping 
to see their incarnation with Alyson(by the way, did their 7-inch ever 
come out on Squirtgun records?). I wonder what Alyson will do now. Maybe 
she can rejoin Jale(you know, two drummers a la the Wedding Present 
maybe?). Well actually, I like Mike Bellisky's drumming alot so Jale is 
fine with one drummer but I would like to see Alyson continue in music 
because I really liked her songs `Not Happy' on Dreamcake and `Wash My 
Hands' on the Closed E.P.

With regards to Sackville, they are sort of an indie-rock supergroup 
featuring members of Nerdy Girl, Pest 5000 and others. I'm thinking 
buying it. Yes country can be cool. :)
