Notes From Das Boot, 161

Stuttgart, Germany 11/26/12 (Later that day)
Backstage at The Longhorn in Stuttgart there are hundreds of old posters for shows. The standard large size posters that are mass produced by the promoter for all the shows in Germany for that tour. There’s a few Monster Magnet ones and out of all the posters here, the only one that seems to have been vandalized is the Magnet poster from the Superjudge tour

[it reads from the top: Fags From N.J., then Assholes over the logo and then Wyndorf The Wanker at the bottom]

although it’s funny I am kind of surprised by the vitriol of it. Of course any band that’s been around this long is bound to have enemies but as a band they’ve always treated opening acts pretty well, they’ve never gone full Rob Zombie on them (Rob Zombie the band, not the man treated us probably the worst out of any major tour we’ve been on. Petty and mean spirited, it was rough). There’s been a couple of messy job endings (both band and crew), but again I don’t think anyone who’d been fired had come back to The Longhorn. It’s been here for years and I’ve always wondered who did it.

  1. 25 Days later that Year Kyuss was on the same stage feat Biohazard and Crowbar …

  2. I’m guessing it was a member of the Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts crew. Seriously.

    Smalleys! Boom, I think you are correct

  3. It doesn’t say “Fags from N.J.” It says “Flags from N.J.” Doubtless a reminder to Stuttgartians to buy German flags from Hoboken.

      No, they meant Six Flags of NJ ….. The band plus Tim.

    I swear, it wasn’t me, I was in Jersey (unfortunately) the whole time …. and besides, if it was me, I would have wrote something like “A red butted baboon with a Bic lighter could have done a better light show” or something along those lines.

    Wyndorf…Wanker. Ah, the subtle use of alliteration, a true signature of quality and distinction in the well-played slur.

    looks like kosniks handwriting to me…..
