Rockets over Europe 2013

Me Mate Frosch loves to travel and he loves to travel to see his favorite bands. Off he goes to Boston, for Hometown Throwdown and off he goes to Berlin-Paris-Barcelona to see RFTC. He claims it was worth it, although he admits that RFTC coming off the plane after a loung haul flight into the show in Berlin was a bid of an ambitious move (and not to their advantage).

I did see RFTC twice in Hamburg in their first incarnation in the 90s and indeed their blend of music was something special. I still own the RFTC bowling short in red and sure their vinyl collection…plenty of vinyl actually. Time to get them into my loveliest vinyl collection!

Thanks to Frosch for the pictures!

My first time …

… and these honest shoes got old punks…on? Honest John Plain looks old (is 61) and does only rarely muffle into the mike…off?

But, nevermind, old men in white shirts did also a lovely job – Jam Today yet again blasted the crowd back into 1977!
