Notes From Das Boot 9

better at night

5/24/99-Prague
We just played the Dynamo festival in Holland. This used to be held near an airport, now it’s in the middle of nowhere on a landfill surrounded by a garbage dump. Large piles of manure were all around (both figuratively and literally). The bathrooms sucked and the catering was the worst I’ve seen yet, boo-fucking-hoo. Although not the prestigious gig it used to be there were still about 100 bands and a whole shitload of kids. The scariest thing was seeing Mercyful Fate/ King Diamond on stage at noon, they’re really a band that should be seen at night. The King’s cross of bone microphone and full make up don’t really play that well during the day. I missed most of the bands I wanted to see (Goatsnake, Unida) but I did catch Fatso Jetson and Nebula, who were both great. Fatso Jetson who’ve been around for a while played a stonery type thing by way of King Crimson, and Nebula played like they were channeling Blue Cheer. Yahoo. The beer was cold, free and got me fucked up, I have no idea what kind it was.
