I can’t believe it’s already been a week since we got back from our tour! I seriously feared that my hangover would be permanent this time, cause it didn’t feel like the kind you can simply cure by sleeping. Fortunately it did go away – but then I went and got one that was even worse after I played a gig with Fulhäst this Saturday. One of these days, I should really grow up …
But the tour was awesome! We did it the real DIY way, “get in the van” style – just decided that we wanted to do a tour, coerced some very nice people into putting us on, rented a van – and hit he road. Since I play in both Flemmings and Pams, I got to play two gigs per night. It was a really cool deal, cause if I felt like I was slightly off with one set, I could always get payback on the next.
Honestly I think we were actually pretty 100 % “ON!” all the way to 11 most of the time.
Going on tour was super fun, and it was great to hang out with so many super cool people – and I was extremely happy to see that quite a few people at the gigs actually seemed to dig us! I learned so much from playing those shows – and I managed to write a pretty gnarly Black Flag pastiche, whilst I was moping in the back seat. Take that, Henry Rollins!
