The gossip mags cover go from Ange's ovaries to royal baby-raising to Hollywood's new "power couple" - Russell Crowe and Liz Hurley.
In May of 2011 I saw the best kind of gig - it was Shayne Carter's Last Train to Brockville show. He hadn't quite wrapped up Dimmer, but the band had released its final album. He wasn't about to offer a Straitjacket Fits reunion show, but there were plenty of Fits songs in the set. The DoubleHappys and Bored Games material hadn't yet been reissued but the songs were there on the stage, strutting and fretting for another hour.
