MESSAGE FROM THE MARKY:
TOUR IN 2000
"Hey everybody, the tour in Europe (2000) kicked fucking ass! Three
times as many people as the last tour. The tour bus kicked ass. The
parties were great
and we entered into a blizzard in Oslo where it was 15 degrees below zero
and 80 mph winds, but we still did the show. I want to thank everyone who
came out to the shows and the great European reviews to my album "The
Answer to Your Problems?". Italy and Germany and Scandinavia also Greece
were fucking rocking! Wanna thank the promoters and everybody involved
for making this the most successful tour of Europe. We're already at this
point planning another one within the next eight months."

always does for every tour), and he says he got enough incredible footage.
These videos will have three hours worth of footage of the Intruders in

great shows. This was shot on Mark's Hi-8 video camera, the same camera he
