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!
… went to see the mighty (and reformed) Saint Vitus @the tiny Logo in Hamburg and enjoyed it sooooo much!
Dave Chandler – has he aged? Indeed he has but he is enjoying the noise as ever! And the looks, boy, the looks! Best Moments: Chatting up birds being interrupted by someone asking to sign a record – looong grin! Plus: Telling the audience to puke on the supervisor next morning and say „fuck off from Saint Vitus“!
Mark Adams – stoic bass player, head and hair down – he is either consumed by dope or cracking astrophysical problems! Best Moment: Did he smile once?
Henry Vasquez – re-born Chuck Biscuits (as in Social Distortion), same wildman-beating-drum-up sytle! Best Moment: Rearranging the lights behind the drums!
Wino – is still Wino. Love it – your fist in the air! Best Moment: Any!
Great evening but why the fuck was i stamped „Elvis“?
