Notes from Das Boot 226

Thursday 2/26/15, Hanover Germany

Was informed that the festival in Rotterdam is ScumBASH and not ScumFEST which is another festival. I didn’t realize how many scum based music festivals there were in Europe: ScumPARTY, ScumSTOCK, ScumCON, and ScumBRUNCH. Sorry for the confusion.

Had another problem with the lighting guys name. Flo told me his name twice and I proceeded to call him Val for a couple of hours, realized my mistake and then called him Lon. Lon? Who the fuck is called Lon? (don’t tell me, I don’t care). I gave up and just called him “Thanks, Man” for the rest of the day.

Internet was terrible at the Schlachthoff Club today, Worse than InterNOT, it was Shitternet. Unable to download the de-colorized version of Gone With the Wind, maybe tomorrow.

BONUS STORY: maybe this is too obscure or maybe it’s just too dumb- opening band Bombus does a drum solo every night. I’ve never seen the drum solo but I hear it every night. Bob and I hypothesized that all the guys in the band participated in the drum solo, like a relay race but with drums. And when somebody would compliment the drummer on his skills, some body else from the band would quip, “He’s not even the best drummer in Bombus” referencing the Beatles story that ended “he’s (Ringo) not even the best drummer in the Beatles”

    Do they give out bags of swag to the bands at ScumBASH like they do at the Oscars ??

    If they did, I wonder what name they would call them ???

    You’re slacking Tim, no launderette post yet. As for ScumSUCKERS (you missed that baby) it looks like square pegs in round holes for you guys but enjoy…
