Due to a few important things, I’ve not had much chance to update my blog from my trip to Greece/Germany/Holland.
So here’s a little bit more, still on day one of my trip. After landing in Cologne, I went round to Sandra and Jochen’s, had a quick bite to eat, then we met up with Ollie. We then went to gebaude 9 on the other side of the Rhine to watch the Holloways, Tilly and the Wall, and CSS.
I was mainly there for the Holloways, I’m going through a bit of a Ska phrase at the moment and they are just what the doctor ordered after a long trip from the US of A. By the time they came on I’d been awake for 32 hours, but a few beers and some fast guitar soon had me buzzing. Here’s a pic from the holloways set.
Next up were Tilly and the Wall, this group are from Omaha, and they play very flowery music, the rhythm section is done by a girl tapdancing; need I say more.
The final band were CSS, (lets make love, listen to death from above) a cool band from Brazil. The band is mainly female and make the Arctic Monkeys look old. Everyone was dancing happily away, but at this stage I was pretty beat and was swaying to the music 🙂
Overall a most pleasant night was had by all 🙂
