I'm not planning too far ahead as usual.

The Franklys will be touring Germany soon; I laid my eyes on 2 dates: Tübingen on 28th January or maybe Karlsruhe on the 7th of February. (?)

While I missed the Cryssis show in Stuttgart last week, they'll also be in Karlsruhe on February 6th!

The Strange will supposedly be touring in February, but I've not seen any dates so far.  ::)

Hugo Race Fatalists plan more touring for spring, hopefully this time with a date closer to my home.

TV of course I should see in April and (hopefully) in May/June.  8)

Yeah well, I didn't even look for tickets, seeing Stuttgart is sold out already. Thus I'm hoping for his solo club gigs of course, would be great if there's one nearby around the Stuttgart date (close to my b-day)! 8)

TV will be supporting DTH at some dates of their "acoustic tour"!

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been invited by Die Toten Hosen to support them on some selected dates on their Summer “Ohne Strom” tour. Currently all dates except Zurich and Dresden are sold out, but if you’re quick you might just get a ticket for one of those two. I’ll be at the following shows: 13.06 STUTTGART Schleyer-Halle, 17.06 DORTMUND Westfallenhalle 1, 20.06 DÜSSELDORF ISS Dome, 27.06 FRANKFURT Festhalle, 30.06 MÜNCHEN Olympiahalle, 10.07 ZÜRICH Hallenstadion, 16.07 DRESDEN Filmnächte am Elbufer. I’ll be slotting in a few club gigs in and around those dates - news on that soon.

Filmmaker Richard Stanley, director of the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out Of Space, has announced that he's writing two follow-up films. Color Out Of Space is intended to be the first film in a trilogy of Lovecraft adaptations.

Did everyone in punk sell out?

No, one or two didn't.

(Hint: no, it's not The Clash.)  :P

Changed the title, because it might make people think this album exists or is about to come out...

What could be on it? (imho)

Back from the dead
The Servant
Luxury in exile
People don't know
Haves and have-nots
Thin green line
Eurodisneyland tomorrow
Strong horse
Driver or passenger
Small Rewards

Good quality vid of their show at Wacken Open Air:

Bobby Keys died at 70 in 2014. But not before leaving his musical thumbprint all over recordings by the Stones, Marvin Gaye, Eric Clapton, Barbra Streisand, Dr. John, Joe Cocker, three of the four Beatles and scores of others. He was also a regular collaborator with Joe Ely, a kindred drifting spirit from Lubbock.

Keys' remarkable life is the subject of a new documentary, "Every Night's a Saturday Night," which makes its Houston premiere tonight at 14 Pews.

"Every Night's a Saturday Night" traces Keys' path from the little town of Slaton, where he fell under the spell of the music made by Lubbock legend Buddy Holly. Keys was just 16 when Holly died, but he was already treading a path music by then had cut for him to follow, working with teen idol Bobby Vee.

Thanks for the reviews & setlists, folks!  8)

Happy new year to all the TUTS!  :D

Just remember, NEVER DRINK (cheap) BOOZE!

If you want to avoid awful hangovers on the first day of the year: don't drink (much) on Dec 31st, is my advice.  8)

(Mind you, I might still get horribly drunk on any other day of the year... but not on the last...)  ;D

Well-written article:

Created by cinematic auteur David Lynch and Mark Frost, the show followed FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) who is dispatched to the isolated town of Twin Peaks to investigate the death of teenager Laura Palmer. To say he finds more than he bargained for is a bit of an understatement.

Following a perfect first season, Peaks suffered a significant drop in quality during its sophomore series, thanks to pressure by US network ABC for Lynch and Frost to wrap up the show’s central mystery and unveil Laura Palmer’s killer just eight episodes into a 22-episode run.

And then, after changing the TV landscape, Twin Peaks disappeared. After two years of Black Lodges, silent giants and evil demons, it shone too bright, too fast to keep up with the culture that it had already started to shape and shift.

It would take 25 years for Peaks to return to our screens, but when it did…well…what a return. 

From beginning to end, the third series of Twin Peaks is as confounding and confusing as it is brave and singular. It picks up 25 years after the events of the second season but is at the same time a completely new story. Eschewing a new murder mystery, the main plot of the new run of episodes concerns Agent Cooper’s efforts to make his way back to Twin Peaks after being trapped in the Black Lodge by his demonic doppelganger. (...)

As a work of art, it is confusing, difficult and absolutely beyond categorisation. As I’ve said, it’s not an easy watch and not everyone will appreciate it. But if you do appreciate TV as an art form, Twin Peaks: The Return is absolutely essential viewing because it shows just what the medium of TV can achieve when it pairs an all-star cast at the top of its powers with writing so singular it seems to define (several) dimensions.

TV via some internet platform:
Off we go...four gigs over three days at the Pitcher in Düsseldorf coming up. We're planning to get through 51 different songs over the three days so every show will be different. All the evening shows are sold out, but there are still a few tickets left for the Sunday afternoon show. Me and Vom (and Schneider!) are gagging for it - see you there!!
