Saint Petersburg, 2017.5.9-11

Like Moscow, taxi drivers are so desperate for business they stand in your way, persuading politely, until they get a firm rejection, and Vlad has pre-booked. The seatbelt is difficult, Martyn takes a few minutes with the drivers’ help. Passing the Gazprom building, waving thank you. Your gas keeps London homes warm. Too bad Greenpeace…

Moscow 2017.5.8

stage dancing Yotaspace really looks like some kind of aircraft hanger. The crowd is whooping and chanting before anything happens: ‘Martyn, Martyn!…’vodka, vodka, vodka’… It was almost full and the show went well despite being ill and having a sore shoulder. I played more aggressively. You can all dance more if you like, but you…

Moscow 2017.5.7 (day off)

Flying with Aeroflot Russian Airlines from Heathrow Terminal 4 to Moscow, reading about Moscow traffic. We expect 50% usual speed because of reconstruction of the main ring road, parks, benches and more. So it’s better to use the Garden Ring Road (?). I remember last time it took us about an hour to get around…

London 2017.5.6 The Kings Head Theatre

On my way to see the Kings Head Theatre Bar since I’m in the area, where Tiger Lillies used to play in their early years. When I was about 7, my designer parents dragged us to the Business Design Centre on Upper Street in Islington, for example to a chair festival called Sit, where we…

Vienna 2017.4.11-12 and London

old Roman water, still good A night off in sunny Vienna at Das Triest hotel. The place oozes confidence, iMac at your disposal for CNN, or cheering up with a non-stop Schlager infomercial. Have some fruit and Römerquelle, the water with the logo of the Roman soldier quenching his thirst from a chalice. I guess…

Munich 2017.4.10

(scroll down for Munich gig report) Alien Flowers In collaboration with Man From Uranus. Man From Uranus has completed the Alien Flowers compilation, LP released by Re-Alignment of Magnetic Dust, featuring yours truly (me) playing drums on Stairs and Cupboards, and the amazing Gardyloo SPeW on alto saxophone solo on Cosmic Telephone. MFU gave me…

Luzern, Switzerland 2017.4.9

Warning: emotionally right / left-brain manipulation ahead I have now been Jonas Golland for 34 years. The first birthday greeting I received was an email from EMAJ hotel in Guimarães, Portugal. A computer algorithm registers the birthday with the email address, and emails some words typed by a human who didn’t know you. This reminder…

Zürich, Switzerland 2017.4.8

Adrian, Martyn, Alfred and Armin have gone to a farm cottage to visit an old friend who used to book the band for private parties, but I need a break. So I spent about an hour playing a word game started by Stewart Keith, thinking of films names with animals in them, such as Penguinnochio,…

Zürich, Switzerland, 2017.4.7

On our way to the airport to collect Sophie. We find no signs that say Arrivals and Departures, so went driving to the car park, but on an overpass, after the divide, there is height restriction of 2 metres, enforced by hanging metal bars. So instead of designing for plenty of time to decide this,…

Biel, Switzerland 2017.4.6

The Tiger Lillies connection to Slipknot. (below) Informal review of St. Gervais, Biel (below) Looking for good English promoter (below) “Coop Pornto!” (below) [sit down when you pee, men] (below) Bye for now, Frankfurt. Entering Switzerland, if you have something to sell or merchandise, you must be ready to report it’s value you intend to…

Frankfurt 2017.4.3-4

The youngest person in the audience was singing along loudly (see below). Mousonturm satisfies the drums rider with classic hardware (see below). We have migrated to Mousonturm in east Frankfurt, which is not new to Tiger Lillies. It’s a lot like Schauspielhaus, with everything they need inside (unless there is a drought or famine of…
