Yeah, as for drinking, that's probably why I like the Irish so much. They are pretty much like the people where I'm originally from, which is in the alpine part of Italy. If, starting at the age of 8, you don't ask your father for letting you have wine, beer and grappa, which he proudly will, you're a social outcast :D

Our new album is nearly ready. If you'd like to order a copy just send an email to 8balltheband@gmail.com. We'll even throw in a watch......waterproof to the depth of a small sink.

Love,
