umm....well you know they weren't bad, but I don't see why it's always these guys to support shellac in Switzerland. I would definitely prefer to see your band in Geneva........

:oops:
thanks for that, I'd love too...

I think Honey for Petzi always support Shellac in Switzerland because everybody think "they sound soooo much like Shellac" and they recorded at EA.
Not a good excuse in my opinion....
(Philippe, the bass player is a really cool guy, so anyway it's gonna be cool for me to share a beer with him tonight).

They are a bit like the swiss math rock darlings. Good band still and solid concert yesterday. I've seen them play better though. Oh, and their drummer gets a little more freaked out behind the kit every time. p.s. I agree Ventura would be a great fit with Shellac.

I recorded one song from Geneva's performance two days ago.

It's here.

Thank you Shellac for a great evening.

and your band is?
i'm sorry if you're actually keith richards or smthn, i don't come here often.

anyways, as far as croatia's concerned, you can't really tell a band's popularity from record sales. records from indie labels are pretty scarce in stores and we buy stuff either from the band at the show or online. i think that might be the case with other third world countries too. :D
besides, there are only so many people that can come to any show when you live in a country of 5 million.

so we get a van and we drive to verona. had a great time yesterday. my love for them grows every time i see them live.
unfortunately, such is not the case with italian audiences.

Mister Harvey is in Dianogah. I believe he plays one of the three clarinets they employ through various effects pedals to make them sound like two basses.

Though I could be wrong.

Oh, then I've seen him play.

But that time in '04 he was playing one of the two basses they employed through various effect pedals to make them sound like three clarinets.

Good show, that one.

Yes, Dianogah and yes Keith Richards.

For what it's worth we've played there twice (04 and 02) and loved it both times.

Dear 2207,
Well, a letter always arrives at its destination, as Lacan reminded us. So here goes for a belated reply to your query which I've just this second stumbled across:
The first time I saw Shellac was in 1994 in Newport. PJ Harvey was in the wings. Steve opened the show with a provocative: "We're Shellac from North America and you're from a country where every word has a 'w' and 'y' in it." They proceeded to spend the rest of the night kicking the rowdy taffies off the barely foot high stage, without missing a beat it must be said.
I've seen Shellac a good dozen or so times in the decade and a half since, but that was the best gig of my life. Hands down.
An old friend of mine who I've lost touch with was there and taped the whole thing. Now that would make for interesting listening...
Best,
A


Adrian,

Thanks for the prompt reply...

I have read about this gig before I think, I might be confusing it with a big black or rapeman concert, where a big welsh person puts steve on his shoulders.

The south of the Welsh nation gets the best gigs, thankfully us welsh northerners can take our passports and head to big bright cities like Manchester and Liverpool for gigs.

Mind you, Shellac never play there either. Bizarrely the only time I've seen them is in The Netherlands.

Salut Adrian, your post made me laugh.
