    There has to be some sort of development. Is the band going to have anymore releases? Did Chris leave and join Nevermore? Is Mark having Rick's baby? I need to see part 2 of the Jag Panzer soap episode!

    LOL!

    We're still alive and kicking.

    We're planning the double live album and that's a logistical nightmare.

    We do much more of our own work then the typical band. For example, our albums done with Jim Morris (4th, Age, Thane, Mech, Casting) were done with about 60% of the budget that bands normally spend working with Jim at Morrisound. We save the money by doing our own pre-production work and doing a lot of the tracking ourselves.

    The live album is no different. We've got a ton of work ourselves to do on it.

    Here are a couple of examples not even related to the actually recording - getting to Canada and having merchandise at the show. Sounds simple, get shirts printed up and rent a tour bus. A tour bus would kill the whole budget. Renting a truck has issues because we're going to another country. Most truck rental businesses don't allow this. And the one that do have cost prohibitive insurance requirements. The problem is solvable, but it's not a simple solution.

    Getting merchandise printed isn't as easy as it sounds. We have to make sure the merchandise is covered by the NAFTA treaty. They not only need to be produced in a NAFTA country but a percentage of the raw material also needs to be produced by a NAFTA country or one of the other countries that have raw material exemptions. Without NAFTA is place we'd have to pay a huge import tax which would make the merchandise so unprofitable it would lose money.

    Then there are the various visas and work permits required for everyone involved.

    And of course you have the actual recording of the show, both audio and high-def video. Both of those also raise a ton of issues themselves.

    The live album is going to be KILLER! I've been waiting my whole life for this. It's a lot of work, but it will be worth it.

    So we can assume the show will be recorded in Montreal, but what venue? The Medley?

    No, not the Medley or Foufounes. It's a different place, supposably much better for filming. I'm trying to find the name now.

    Club Soda, Spectrum or Metropolis would be my next guess....

    Any chance of you coming to Quebec City?

    If you're playing shows on the way, you guys should play the I-Rock in Detroit! I could get a lot of people to come to the show...And save me some of this so-called "special merch." ;)

    :kickass:

    Mark, I just read on Blabbermouth that you guys are doing the double live cd and I think not only is it great news:kickass: but very much long awaited too!:kickass: please let us know the day it comes out as I NEED it the first day it comes out :worship:


    I also see that you'll be doing some shows along the way so hopefully *fingers & toes crossed* that you'll play a show in NJ or NYC :worship:

    This past June was a year already since the gig at the Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown, PA so needless to say, I can use a live Jag gig :heh:

    All the best to you and your familiy and to all the hardwork you guys are doing to bring all of us Jag fans some live stuff to sink our teeth in \m/

    @ Mark , i posted your news on myspace... here is a message of a fan ... i just got it through the jag account...

    Hey Mark, I love your stuff, I wish there were a way I could help. I can't wait to get the live stuff! Where is the best place for me to see when you are gigging? I was going to see you in LA a couple years ago, but I had to fly to Europe for work. I will travel great lengths to see you guys! If I can fly to Spain to see John Norum (and have it cancelled) I can go anywhere to see JP!!!

    cheers,
    -Michael

    Well good luck with everything, sounds like a shitload of work ahead. I'm sure their are reasons why you cant record in the States... What's this with planning on taking some high-def. video, would another dvd be a possibility?
