Ramonescore from Berlin with a sweet young bassplayer that made some older women in the audience growing motherly instincts…not to bad but inovative it wasn’t. And the few people in the audience anyway wheren’t up for them it felt. Sorry Guys!

Followed suit by Hamburg’s one and only Jam Today, today sans suits and with added help from the Korg. A tight set, a birthday gift and loads of sing-a-long! We love it, you love and they love it – what else can you ask for?

Now that’s a return – the last time i saw The Sect was 1992 at the Zinnschmelze (the first club where Dirk Matzke was booking shows for a short period) with Noise Annoys and that was a fantastic show! They are back now and they tried to gain upfront credibility with Hamburg by wearing a Noise Annoys shirt on stage…ain’t that to easy? Their sound has been speeded up a wee bit (to the positive) but the soft edges are still there. Frank – i’d wish they would decide one way or the other, still they are somehow in nowhereland. So speed it up, harden it and keep the vocals: i would love it even more.

All-in-all a Friday like a Friday should be: Day off, out to the seaside with my love enjoying an early sun, getting god news that me mate is out of hospital and soon gets into rehab and finishing off with a show in one of my fav clubs. And yes, beer got into the equasion to. Can’t beat that setting!
