More gigs have been added to the official website! I hope I might make it to Nuremberg (because it is a nice town - fond memories of a gig there in late 2011)!

One more gig to add: February 9th Augsburg @Kreuzweise

This is a "special event", it's the last night of that bar, apparently it was possible to reserve tickets via email, but I didn't (decided to leave it to the people who knew and liked the place).
As mentioned, I might go to one of the other shows instead.  8)

Louise comments, "This collection of songs is a small taste of what to expect from the upcoming album, out later this year. I'm so excited to hit the road next week. It's going to be just me, my guitar and my songs. I can't wait to see you and finally share everything I've been working on. See you in the pit!"

In support of the EP, Louise will be heading out on a UK headline tour next week, where she will be raising money for Crisis Charity in conjunction with Musicians Against Homelessness.

Ha, I remember Klaus promising me a recording of the gig in Asbach (in Pamp's local pub) back in September 2000. It "only" took him until early 2003 to send it to me! Now that was a pleasant surprise back then, as you can imagine!  :D

Guess who transfered it onto CD back in 2003  ;D

Oh, that was you? THANK YOU for this!!!  8) Without you I'd probably still be waiting. That was a good gig with a great setlist (incl. many songs which later were to be heard on the NABD album). I even made myself a tape of it, I listened to it in the car for many years!!

... you Remember Earthbound 2005 where TV played mostly everything from the Channel 5 (except for Dominator, Fire in the Darkness, Cracking Up and Beautiful Bomb) and some where Like "oh please no more Channel 5 Songs? Fun Gig

Indeed, I remember it well. Our dear late "Mr C5" was SO happy! (I was quite surprised to hear so many songs from it.)
Sometime during the set a little handwritten note was passed on to TV through the crowd, saying "please no more Channel 5 songs". Naming no names... oh alright, it was forum user "Lari77" who wrote that!!  ;D (Anyone remember her?)

I think this was my first EB, I managed to go to 2 more in Essen ("Anyway") in 2006 and 2007, after that it was too far or unfortunate timing for me... (until the one in Augsburg).

Will dig throught it the next few days

hm i thought i was the Earthboud 2012 in Augsburg, but Klaus have the Setlist

No, No, No...  those fatal words Klaus has the set list....   BUT, he has sent me a recording of Paderborn 2003, so thats 16 years late..  There may be still hope before the lid goes on..

Well, it was October 2013 when TV played all the songs of the "I Delete" album (which was not yet released at this point in time) for us at Earthbound Augsburg! I don't know if Klaus has a "setlist", but he video'd the whole thing, so in theory he could extract a setlist from the video (it remained unreleased, as Klaus thought the quality was not good enough).

There are lots more where these came from – here are 20 that nearly made it, should have made it, still might make it if I don’t send this article off soon…

The Damned ‘Damned Damned Damned’
32 minutes that changed the World. Is she really going out with him?

The Rolling Stones ‘Exile On Main Street’
No, side 3 isn’t that great – but the rest of it certainly is.

Iggy & The Stooges ‘Raw Power’
James Williamson on guitar. Enough said.

The Mega City Four ‘Tranzophobia’
You had to be there. Thankfully I was.

The Gas ‘Emotional Warfare’
– The best album you’ve never heard by the best group you’ve never heard.

TV Smith’s Cheap ‘R.I.P. – everything must go!’
The best album you’ve never heard by the best group you’ve never heard (slight return).

The Godfathers ‘Hit By Hit’
Their early singles collected. Mighty.

The Ruts ‘The Crack’
You were wondering where this one had got to weren’t you? To be honest it would / should have been in the top 10, but, well, that would just be weird wouldn’t it? Well, wouldn’t it?!?

‘The Crack’ is re-issued on the 8th February 2019 having been Re-mastered by Tim Turan at Turan Audio, and then cut to vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, the release comes complete with a digital download.

As usual, I've been playing some music which meant something to me in the past year...

In the car, I found out that Rat Scabies' "PHD" is a good listen while driving. Now I try to avoid unnecessary drives, but at times I can't wait to get back in the car and have another listen!  ;D

Over Christmas, I felt that gospel recordings by Elvis seemed appropriate.  ;)
Also, "Too close to heaven" by The Waterboys got played.

I never saw The Alarm as a "punk band" anyway...

But I like his statement here:
Peters said he was thrilled with the nomination.

"It's quite humbling because I don't know who has put me forward for it," he said.

"To be nominated is a real honour and I am very grateful to accept.

"Our family has been struck twice with cancer - myself three times and Jules my wife and our message to other people out there (going through it) is never give in; never ever give up"

They are presently working on a new album of songs that will hopefully be released in the coming year, and then they will be celebrating their 40th anniversary after that. In the thick of the crowd tonight there seemed to be more punks, more women, and a younger contingent engaging as well as the return of fans back for the first time in 30 plus years.

You should have been a lawyer!

I am, or wish I was... or could that be a lie, too?  :P

Glad you had a good night Uli - UNLESS that too was a lie?!

Let me think...
"it was not nice to meet the TUTS, it was not nice to chat to Sally and TV
the gig was not enjoyable, I did not feel uplifted by this music
Last lost sheep is not a very touching song for me"

If you leave out the word "not" it's not a lie!  :D
