Cauliflower curry. The set was bright for some and difficult for
others. Monitoring issues. Dingo weakened. Pamelia Kurstin brought
some rock'n'roll after-hours while wolves dance to Africa trying to
get paws up on high surfaces in amazing penthouse. Thank you.
Jonesin at this point.
Munich - Back to Backstage, in the industrial perimeter of
the city. High voltage jams.
Cologne - Spacing out despite the confined space. Concluding
the German leg, way better reaction this time. Maybe krautrock
wasn't such a bad idea. The highlight was discovering the
reincarnation of Jjohn Balance in a Hayseed Dixie poster (see
Tilburg - Walter to the rescue. Fuck the police. Dingo
finally unweakened by high spirits and Dutch professionalism.
Magick time, huge screen for Sethro, fearless playtime. Surprised
by the seated formality (we asked for chairs to be removed, said
"it's not that kind of gig," to no avail) but managed to subvert
the crowd into a hlokoloza by the encore. Kudos to the dude who
initiated it. Imagine that 1993 Ulver, people dancing and shaking
their booties. Super fun night, as usual in the Nethernetherlands.
Milan - Donkey hotel. A farm actually. Roosters, rams and
peacocks lived with us. Python skin and hunter's hats on the wall.
Cimmerian onstage, super loud and super dry. Some cretinous
weakener changed all the settings on my pedals so hard work
overall. Ivar flashing bright behind the kit. Dingo seriously
weakened by broken PA. Vocal compressor broke during England. Was
louder sound coming from stage than FOH we learned afterwards.
Pretty rock and roll.
Rome - At last, the food. Feeding frenzy. Great conclusion in
a classic. Everyone happy. Not so much the next day. And that
explains why this tour log is so late. The end.
