    Billy Talent, The Subways, The Sounds und die weniger bekannten Bands The Cinematics und Samiam waren die Acts, welche das Publikum beim, zum ersten mal auf Tour gehenden, Indoorfestival Sally Sounds 2006 in Köln richtig in Stimmung bringen sollten. Bei dem Line-Up aber auch nicht so schwer. Tausende tanzende, springende und hüpfende Menschen verwandelten das Palladium in ein verdammt heißes Tollhaus. Die kostenlose Zeitschrift Uncle Sally’s hat es geschafft ein stimmiges Line-Up zu präsentieren, nur Samiam wollte sich nicht so einfügen, dazu aber später mehr.

    Den Anfang machten The Cinematics, welche mir leider verwehrt blieb. Denn ich musste bis 18 Uhr arbeiten und die schottische Band begann bereits um 18:30 Uhr, obwohl der Beginn auf der Eintrittskarte für 19 Uhr angekündigt war. So schnell habe ich es natürlich nicht vom MediaPark bis nach Köln-Mühlheim geschafft. Eine Klassenkameradin, welche ich da zufälligerweise getroffen habe, berichtete mir später bedauerlicherweise…

    Due to buying tickets in advance for this sold out show, we had to miss The Khe Sanh Approach's second gig of the term. Still, not having listened to The Subways at all for a couple of months, I was very much reminded why I bobbed my head so enthusiastically to their songs at the summer festivals.

    The Kooks were pretty good and had lots of support from the crowd. However, I must admit that they didn't blow me away with their originality - a band to give another listen to at home, perhaps.

    When the first drum beats of With You started, any questions about lyrical complexity were completely forgotten and every teenage girl in the crowd went crazy. Billy may be a precocious 20 year-old little git, but he's got well constructed poppy tunes and a blonde girlfriend (who, incidentally, is not nearly as hott as I remembered). He bounced around the stage, jumped from speaker stacks (cue worried looking stewards) and crowdsurfed during the encore. …
