'When the drummer arrived he informed me the thing was upside down and back to front!'

'When the drummer arrived he informed me the thing was upside down and back to front!'

So... Amsterdam? (Or as it's known to many, "The 'Dam".)

It was pretty fuckin' grim, to be honest. Cold, wet and windy.

We was playing a gaff called the Melkweg, or as it's known to us users of the Queen's, "The Milky Way". Which is ironic because the first time I ever visited The 'Dam was in the '80s when I was working for that band the Inspiral Carpets? Google them.

Anyway, we played the very same venue.

I have one vivid memory of being out of my fuckin' mind on some crazy weed trying (in vain) to set up the drummer's drum kit. Think it took me about 3 hours, which these things tend to do when you're stoned. And when the drummer arrived he duly informed me the fuckin' thing was, in fact, upside down and back to front!

Good gig though. It was a very relaxed affair. Had a good laugh with some people in the crowd. Top night all round.

The big news at the moment though is that Man City and Liverpool have been drawn together in the semi-final of the Carling Cup. I'm hoping the betting gets a bit more interesting this time… y'know… a doughnut and a glass of milk? An ice cream, maybe? Maybe some actual money will change hands this time!!!

You currently find me in the European hotspot for all things beige… BRUSSELS. (Yaaaawn).

In a bit.

GD.

I just used Lyric Generator too: Living For Freedom in a Red Spaceship - In the style of The Beatles Oh yeah, I'll tell you something, I think you'll understand. When I'll say that something, I want to hold your bat, I want to hold your bat, I want to hold your bat. Oh please, say to me, You'll let me save the world. And please, say to me, You'll let me be popular. Now let me hold your bat, I want to hold your bat. Imagine there's no computers. It's easy if you try. No inner eyes in The park, Above us only minds. Imagine all the people, Living for freedom... You may say I'm a star, But I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will become burned. All you need is love. All you need is love. All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. We all live in our red spaceship, Red spaceship, red spaceship, We all live in our red spaceship, Red spaceship, red spaceship. Oh yeah! Generated on 03/12/2011 03:13 by The Way

Cold, wet and windy in Amsterdam? Huh, it was fairly mild and sunny as far as I recall. Never mind, it was great. Nice atmosphere, really good music!

Yeah, he also said Amsterdam was grim - the CITY, guys. Not the fans. I'm sure the yawn was meant the same way. Or maybe he's just really tired lol XD

I don't think the "yaaawn" was directed at the belgian fans (at least I hope not lol - I guess we are like all the other fans, neither better nor worse) but at the city. And being a native of Brussels, I see exactly what he meant ;)
