Friday: We arrived. Discovered that we had booked the room Thursday and Friday, not Friday and Saturday. But that got solved. Had a few beers and some Teigtasche. Went to the Snake & Jet's concert (which was nice). Went to see Times New Viking (which was bad). Went to see Golden Kanine (by accident, but it was cool, still). Curry wurst (scharf, scharf, scharf). Molotow, dancing, Crazy Horst, drinking, Eldorado, Übel & Gefährlich, dancing, hotel.
Saturday: Wies'n Frühstück. Flohmarkt. A few beers. Looked at Millerntor, yay, bought souvenirs. Found cafe with cheese and cider. Found cafe that served the largest White Russian and some pretty cool Mojitos. Saw some bands which were kinda bad. Curry wurst (scharf, scharf, scharf). Boozing. Danced a bit at a punk club. Hotel.
Today: Brunch. Loooong walk to the immensely cool harbour. Going home. Met very cool girl on the train that gave us a lift in her car from Rødby to Copenhagen.
And basically. Hamburg is brilliant. I wanna live there at some point, I think.

And Rutschgefahr. And Gruselkomödie. German is brilliant too.

You could say she was attractively built....

Oh and before I'll be dancing and boozing in Hamburg there's a bit more going on here. I just discovered that the readers of DR have decided upon their favourite Beatles songs. So I thought that I might as well make a top 10 of my own. So here goes:
10: We Can Work It Out (basically just a good tune).
9: Helter Skelter (well, noisy as hell and cool as whatnot).
8: Dear Prudence (it's just beautiful and the Siouxsie version is cool shit too).
7: Ticket To Ride (the guitar and the drums!).
6: I Want To Hold Your Hand (the chorus, goddammit!).
5: Sun King / Mean Mr. Mustard / Polythene Pam / She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (because I used to play the last 3 songs with Mikkel, when we were drunk).
4: Taxman (it's so raw, so tough and so in your face).
3: Something (well, being sentimental. And it's so beautiful).
2: Do You Want To Know A Secret (well, sentimental again, and the "uh-uh-uh-uh-uh". I'd very much like to do a cover version at some point).
1: A Day in the Life (the bass is like wild, the drums are like yay and it makes me wanna like dance and cry at the same time):

Un peu trop idealiste...

Tomorrow we're off. To Hamburg and Reeperbahn Festival, that is. And it's gonna be smashing, smashing, smashing and then some.
And first Boombox pic.
And video (I have a kinda hot Birkin photo hanging in front of me at work :-)):

All dried up...

Ui. Take a listen to Eyelied Movies by Phantogram. Very cool beats, synth, shoegaze, indie and even Blonde Redheadish at times. In other words: Recommendable.

And ui. Also check out Pinkunoizu. Dudes from Le Fiasko, Selvhenter and others. Lo-fi, country and somehow it also reminds me of the Yerself Is Steam by Mercury Rev. And that's a compliment :-). And a reason to find Carwash hair on Youtube :-):

Stream the new one on Bandbase. Yay!

Sunday, September 6, 2009


This has been a rather cool one. Been listening to the new Yo La Tengo (stream album here). And it's great, it's got the typical Yo La Tengo ballads, a bit of noise and some psych (and I haven't got the track list, but the third song is perhaps the prettiest/saddest song I've heard this year).
And then just relaxing after yesterday's football game (sweet jesus, lucky Danes) and the amazing Crunchy party (pictures via Soundvenue). And then writing lyrics for a song. And now, I'm gonna write some more. And drink some red wine.
