Notes From Das Boot, 175
August 8, 2013 / Haarlem, Netherlands
Day off in Haarlem yesterday, beautiful old city. There’s about ten percent of the tour I wish I could bring my wife out for, there’s about ten percent that’s not drudgery, stink and tension. The day off was a large part of that ten percent and I found a copy of the new Fall album on LP. So it’s all downhill from here. Also our guitar tech who I thought was named Petty is actually named Paddy, kind of a Seinfeld “seltzer/salsa” thing. So I guess I will stop referring to him as Tom or Richard Petty. We are playing the Paatronaat tonight. If memory serves we played here on our first tour, it was a one off with Tar and it was the only time that Magnet played The Eagle Never Hunts the Fly by Music Machine .
