After an afternoon hanging out in Verona with the folks at Italian Label Starquake Records I made my way with Andrea to Vicenza where we readied for my return show there. Andrea again was mindbogglingly patient and respectful as we wrestled for a while with getting the sound right with the room.
The venue itself has been open since shortly after the 2nd world war and is now run by the grand daughter of the original owners. It maintains that cool vintage mystique and feel. There are Vinyls lying around next to gramaphones. Which can by utilized in a number of ways 😉
The vibe that night was mellow and I played a super long extended set more focused on the mellow. Rare performances of Time Lost Tradition, City at Night and a Solo version of Dare We Claim Victory also got a dusting down.
A lovely warm and friendly crowd. We even got drunk and talked politics after the show. A Bad Idea!!!
Before Your Very Eyes (Atoms For Peace Cover)
Back in 2002 I ventured on what was then the farthest I had been from home.
Scratching that once in a lifetime boyhood itch of going to a match at the football world cup finals.
South Korea had only just qualified through to the semi finals and it just happened to be the ticket I had bought before the championships began.
The atmosphere was amazing and although they did not win the match to just be in the biggest match of the nations history in their home stadium was something truly special.
11 years later.
My thanks to Tape and CD Records and G.T.Arp for their help with this.
