I have come to love this Pablove across the world business. It's cool to follow the dots around the globe, and to figure out a theme every time I get enough pictures to weave into a post. Today, I don't have to come up with a theme. Dangerbird's Sydney, Australia band Dappled Cities made it easy. Lead singer Dave Rennick wore his Pablove shirt all over Oz, as the band did promotion for its new album 'Zounds.' The band's manager Troy Barrott was an old friend of Pablo. They spent a lot of time together when Troy lived in LA. Troy and his family sent Pablo a very cool gift last summer—'Never Mind Your P's and Q's Here's The Punk Rock Alphabet.' We loved paging through that book. I remember one time the band came over to our house for dinner or something, and Pablo thought a band of pirates had invaded our crib. Not because they had swords and muskets—because of their gnarly accents.
I'm pretty sure Pablo sprinkled some butterfly dust over his piratical Aussie homies—'Zounds' entered the Australian chart this week as the #1 indie record.
