Trucker, the guitarist and singer in the Shinhackers has been sending out a semi-regular email called the Shinhacker News. Here is his latest edition. He is pretty funny...

The latest exciting development in Shinhacker lore is the establishment of the British Columbia Shinhacker Centre (BCSC) retreat creation manifesto. This Centre, once planned and built will house the Shinhackers and their families and be a centre of excellence for organic-granola-hippy types to eat, drink, work, and play music as well as grow food and other crops, brew beer and distill liquor in an atmosphere of righteous excellence and down home easy livin'. Stay tuned.
After a long period of courting, we have finally nailed down a date at the Cluck, Grunt and Low . This Louisiana B-B-Q joint has awesome food and now they have an awesome bluegrass band to go with it. It's on just about every TTC route imaginable and will be a hell of a night. The kitchen will be open till midnight to accommodate late night snacking. This is kind of our audition at this place, so if you're thinking of coming out to hear us, this is the time. And that night, Friday the 13th, is Limb Dodgin's birthday! Come out and celebrate!
In case you haven't been round lately, Trucker's been for a long overdue session at the Corn Syrup Spa and Beauty Parlour. Check him out!
