Just got back online.
Thanks to sziamiau for the company. Cool chick, who now owns a new Sisters hoodie.:notworthy: :notworthy:
Was great to meet you & have a great time on your new adventures in Holland/ Belgium, or wherever it takes you.

Well, after reading all the sh!tstorms about sound mixes, illnesses & general poor quality, I was a little apprehensive about this show.
Would it be the "final nail"
The answer was (I'm glad to say) a resounding NO!!!.
I was stood just in front of the mixing desk (just in case someone chimes in with, "it sounded pooh".)
From the moment Von open his mouth, I opened mine & I think it was prolly open for the whole of the rest of the show.
He was "there"!
Every scream was coming from him, from start to finish & even the quieter bits were perfectly audible.
I am waiting to see that version of Alice on yoochoob, as that should be a testament to just how good the sound & the voice was.
At one point, I was a little scared that he was overdoing it too early & that it would peeter out towards mid set. But no. It just kept coming & coming.
FLAA alwyas rocks, but last night it took on a new energy I'd not felt for many years (even though the intro is still not played properly).
Corrosion is to the Sisters, what Killing An Arab is to the Cure (yes, I had to get that word in huh :innocent: ) & the audience went bonkers.
The word "sing!" just ripped through the crowd, as if issued from a large anti aircraft gun.
Romeo Down featured some true Eldo blood chilling screams & at one stage, he evenn appeared to be pointing at himself, nodding, as if to say, "yes, I can still do it folks".My only regret last night was that Floorshow didn't get an outing. Although I don't like this 2009 version, I really wanted to hear it with this "new found voice".
The bass was seismic & I half expected to come out & see loads of dead fish floating on the top of the Danube
:lol:
One outstanding track (if I have to pick one) was Flood I.
Truly scary & one of the best performances of that song I think I've ever witnessed.
& that main thing to take away from last night is that everyone enjoyed themselves. The band looked in good spirits & the crowd returned the energy that was being dished out.....in spades!

I think even James would have enjoyed this one. 8)

Shame we couldn't hook up with _emma_ & blueness. Hope you had a great night & got back home in 1 piece.
Cheers.
Steve

Not the best quality, but what do you expect from a cameraphone?

edit:
Listen to Ribbons & tell me you can't hear Von.

fantastic vids Steve!

thanks!!! :notworthy: :notworthy:

(and yes, i can hear him ;D )

edit - is it me or is the crowd a bit too, umm..., stationary? i can understand standing there like a tree when a gig is crap, but surely not when the band are doing such a stonking job? :?

It was great meeting you Steve, hope the way home wasn't too tiring. We did have a couple of good laughs, didn't we? Blueness I hope you got home okay too bad we couldn't meet.

@Ozpat..thanks! I did make it to at least one gig :lol: If you happen to be in Maastricht on Thursday or over the weekend I'll probably run into you.

Shame indeed, well I spent a really long time sitting on those stone steps on the bank of Danube and I was alone.
Anyway -I'm just back home in 1 piece and I badly need my bathroom. :lol:
Yes, it was a great gig, absolutely! :D :notworthy:
More later. :D

It's indeed a shame we didn't meet.

OK, i'm convinced. But Von should get rid of these racing bike shades and go back to the cool ones.

Well, I was standing there some time ago after hearing the gig would not happen. Too bad I could not make it back to Budapest this week again...
