He's Here

On December 18, 1996 9:36am EDST, Kristin Hersh gave birth to a beautiful 7 lb. 1 oz. baby boy named Wyatt True O'Connell... We both want to thank all of you for your thoughts, support, concern, and understanding, throughout the entire pregnancy.

Kristin and Billy

To all of you...

This has been a big year...Lots has happened (and not happened), but through it all, the people who come to this site, and specifically those who participate in the feedback board, have been great to have around... Thanks for your concern, involvement, and love for this band's music...We're truly grateful to have you...

Thanks for your thoughts/prayers/chants during the tense days of Kristin's pregnancy... All is well now, Wyatt is healthy as a horse, and you're all officially off duty...

Also, thanks for thinking Dave's so damn sexy...We have to sell records *somehow*...

In the New Year, we'll do our best to give you all what you want from us (Live dates, some new music, and a brand-spankin' new site, to name a few of the goodies), as well as some suprises...Stick around, and keep in touch...
