    howdy....so i'm on a train (we know where this is going, don't we?) from Barcelona, Spain to Malaga (southern coast of spain)....a 12 hour ride, with amazing farmland, waterfalls, towns, and everything inbetween. At one stop, a very stern lady sat in the seat beside mine, and would glance bitterly my way if anything of mine passed over the imaginary line that divided her space from mine. Right as i'm starting to think "Gosh, what a ....", i see the little kid (about 3 years old) who is in the seat in front of mine looking through the space between the two seats, sticking his tongue out, laughing and in general just wanting to play. So of course we did. Very happy time. Of course, i thought of "Kid on the Train". And when he finally fell asleep, i dug out my i-pod and played it ("Kid.." and the acoustic version of "3 strange days"), watching the fields blur by. Thank u.

    So strange. I was just about to search the Internet to see if I could find a copy of "What Good Is Heaven" my favorite of Josh's songs. For some I figured I'd check out the message board first. And there it is available on iTunes (Thanks Marilyn!) I haven't been able to get WGIH out of my head for a few days now. I guess I'm not the only one who needed to hear that song right now.

    Josh's family here. We're happy to tell you that four of Josh's songs, songs as yet unreleased or now difficult to find, are available for digital download. They are available now on iTunes until August 9, and after that on other digital sites as well. The songs are "Goodbye Green World," written and performed by Josh and Michael Ward in 1989 on their very first School of Fish demo; "Broken Arm," written and performed by Josh and Michael around the time of School of Fish's Human Cannonball Album; "What Good is Heaven," once available as an Inarticulate Nature Boy demo B-side, written and performed by Josh and Larry Goldings on Wurlitzer piano with Lily Hayden on the violin; and the School of Fish hit "Three Strange Days," in solo performance by Josh, opening for Tori Amos. This last has been available on the Live Album, but we're sad to say that CD is going out of print. We hope you enjoy the songs! Your caring means a lot to us.
