Happy New Year!

(Amended 1 Jan 11 and 2 Jan 11.)

Holy fuck, what a great gig last night in Bremen. The CP has the video, I captured the raw floor feed via the KSV H2, and the venue recorded a 16-channel board mix (without us having to ask; Vielen Dank Holger!). Even the hard-to-please Janin seemed elated, and the New Year's Eve crowd were going completely ape. Perfect...

The only slight downer: the (genuinely) great Major Murks was supposed to perform with us (we'd rehearsed as a quartet the entire week prior to the show) but, while he lugged his mammoth desktop monitors to the gig, he forgot to bring his Schneider 64k computers! Thus, he was unfortunately sidelined. (The haze was a bit too thick for memory to punch through. Next time, Olaf!)

More re the gig, KSV newness, upcoming gigs, and the TS/KD tour soon!
