The Misery Of The Honeymoon

I'm sitting here listening to Ben Thompson's weekly radio show on Resonance FM (www.resonancefm.com). Cracking programme. Bashing through pre-production work for 2 forthcoming tours in October and November. The King of Logistics is waving his wand over rough ideas and shambolic planning presented to him by record labels and booking agents alike, and spinning a delectable web of control that captures all disparate ideas/plans and hauls them to central reserve where he makes dreams come true!!! Sound pompous? Well you gotta know what crap gets piled on my plate and what I have to put up with.

It is now 30 September....4 days after I started writing the above. It's my birthday!!!! Tonight we play in Amsterdam....The Bent Moustache take part in the Amsterdam Underground Festival......I'm really looking forward to this show. We are literally playing under a bridge! It used to be an old prison, and the Paradiso has chosen 3 different underground venues to put on a festival of music and art. We have Bob and Ditmer guesting. Some other very good bands playing too...."Blues Brother Castro" and "Malle Pietje en de Bimbo's". Afterwards, its onwards to the Westergasfabriek to see the "Stukadelics" bombing their way through a no-wave post-funk set. Chocks away......................
