Notes From das Boot 121

Red Bank, NJ 7/18/11
The last few days were a whirlwind of shitty weather and no internet, so that’s why no posts. The Slottsfjell festival in Tonsberg, Norway was really good, it was amazing to see Grinderman two days in a row. We played on top of a small mountain and the rain was good enough to stop for most of our set. The next day was a flight from Norway to Germany and a then a drive to Zwarte Cross festival in Netherlands. It was a cool weird motorcross/odd vehicle festival with music (I’ll post photos in a day or so) but it was undercut by the worst rain we had all tour. Well that’s it.
The Drawer of Disappointment: Among the stuff we get in our dressing room every show is candy and most of the candy gets thrown in a drawer in the lounge on our bus. Any of the good candy is usually gone so it became a “Drawer of Disappointment” filled with things like “Knoppers” and less stellar treats. It was like Charlie Brown and the football, you knew that there was nothing good in in the drawer, but still…

    Glad you made it back over the pond safely. Thanks for the past month of insight and entertainment, funny as hell as ever. Hope you have something extra special lined up for Dopes…

    I love it, It’s like the halloween candy you hate, toss in the bottom of your underwear drawer, don’t find it until easter—then it gets replaced with a new batch of candy you hate. I must admit though, in desperate “candy-thin” times i have been known to crunch on a stale banana flavored “necco” wafer or two (the chocolate flavored ones being devoured 3 months before). I can’t believe i just admitted that

    It seems that Tonsberg is in Norway not Sweden, I will edit the text so it appears that it was Norway all along and all the comment saying I got it wrong were either cranks or drunks or both. Good day to you.
