Davey Norket has been taking care of business at his old haunts in Half Moon Bay, USA, but will be heading back to Holland soon. Last weekend, there was a "Mini-Fool's Reunion," according to Paul Blackwell:

(L to R) Davey Norket and Ced Curtis, March 2011.

I met up with Davey Norket and Cedric Curtis in Montara, near Half Moon Bay. I picked up Matthew in Berkeley on the way. Great time had by all. We also did a little jam session. Davey as wizard of funk, and Cedric as soulful as always. I was Mr. Strummer.
