BATE is Blows Against the Empire.  At the shows this past week, the band's sound man/road manager, John Murray, announced that Marty was not able to be there.  Refunds were offered with the warning that these were going to be hot shows and not to be missed.  I didn't see anyone leave.  Rumors being what they are, the rumor of personal commitments surfaced a few times, but no official reason was given and it would be wrong to speculate as such speculations are often way off the mark.  The website indicated from the get-go that Marty would NOT be at the shows last week.  It was some of the venue ads that said he would.  Since BATE was recorded without Marty, it makes sense to do it when he is not performing, otherwise he'd be sitting on his thumbs for a long while.  According to the website, he is supposed to be at the Keswick, and this seemed to be the opinion at the shows last week.  We won't have long to wait to find out!    CWH
