FRENCH TOUR DIARY

15th APRIL. [Colmar @ Grillen]

After an awesome 20 hour flight to Paris Spoek and I headed west through the blossoming country side to colmar on the boarder of Switzerland to play our first show

Thesis Sahib [myspace click]

and B.Dolan [myspace click] (Sage Francis’s label) opened for us.

16th APRIL [Amsterdam @ Paradiso]

Show was proper last night, bit of a conservative venue but people got LOOSE. I caught Spoek thrusting the monitor after I told him he didn’t get wild enough…haha. He told me he was gonna break his stage diving virginity, didn’t happen then but hopefully somewhere on this tour…

Volcano ash is cancelling flights all over Europe and we need to get to Amsterdam….

Our first gig at paradiso FUCK YEA….

Hopefully Spoek’s gonna get into the crowd tonight.

17th APRIL [Bourges @ Printemps de Bourges]

Yesterday was fucked, volcano hell made us catch 4 trains to get to Amsterdam, we got in at about 10 .. at least we made it.

Paradiso, what a epic venue, 3 floors and a back stage network under the club that wraps one dance floor. We played with skip and die, birdy nam nam and boem klatsch and got no sleep! Spoek never stage dived and to add to it Volcano has stranded Markus in München and there’s no way for him to get to France, so our trio mash up of Real Estate, Sweat.X and Playdoe is not gonna happen.

Today we head to Le Printemps de Bourges festival where a bunch of South Africans have played including Blk Jks, 340ml, Tumi and Gazelle.

We be heading down will Raiko and Ben Sharpa in our sweet van.

This festival is amazing!

I was stuck in interviews and all I saw of Daniel Johnston was his hard case.

Saw some cool bands there:

Brian Jonestown Massacre

Twin Twin

And Chain and the gang [click] (didn’t get a pic but these guys are awesome !!!!)

These guys Solillaquists of Sound [click] are crazy … well especially DiViNCi he plays 3 mpcs and actually does full drum solos on 2 at the same time with 4 fingers on each hand playing pads !!! He has this guitar solo that destroys live and the guitar is processed from a fucking snare …. OMG this guys is by far the coolest mpc guy out there with Araab MUZIK close in second.

DiViNCi kills it on 3 MPCs at the 2008 Plug Awards from Solillaquists of Sound

“These guys Solillaquists of Sound are crazy … well especially DiViNCi he plays 3 mpcs and actually does full drum solos on 2 at the same time with 4 fingers on each hand playing pads !!!”

But my highlight would have to be when Raiko pushed a pick pocketing 19 year old in the mud …. Whahaha.

If this volcano decides to stop fucking up the world I might make it to Scotland Thursday for Boom Monk Ben’s Thursday regular, watch this…
