TV played We Want The Road in Karlsruhe and Stuttgart! Now I like it much more than I ever did...

Ha ha, good to hear you weren't drunk last night...
I can understand you wanna know what happened on the Forum. Maybe you're just reading it, I've put up a "short" report about Stuttgart! I got up very early today if you consider that I got into bed about 4.30am... But Viola (who stayed here in my parent's house for the night) wanted to drive home early and I just didn't want to go to bed again and tell you here about the brilliant night we just had... :D

TV Live / Tour report number 2

Stuttgart went much better than expected!!!
Viola just started her drive home about an hour ago, I planned to go to sleep again, but I couldn't, I was too enthusiastic about last night! I just took my CD's and noted down all the songs TV played yesterday plus the new songs I remembered - I counted 39!!! TV said after the gig it was 40+ (he thought he forgot one or two), so he broke his record! Unbelievably, two and a half hours playing time...
At first TV thought it could turn into a cold atmosphere in this big club with not too many people turning up, but in the end it was an intimate warm atmosphere anyway and he enjoyed it (obviously). He played many rare songs (We who wait, Television's over) including some I'd never heard live before, JS wished for Straight and narrow, which he played promptly, I really enjoyed it, as well as Can't Pay Won't Pay.
We had a bit of a fan meeting with Viola, JS, Rene and Marianne being there. In fact it was also the first "official" meeting of the Smith fanclub whose "members" are all called Schmid (well, only Jessica and me till now). A big THANK YOU to my friends who were wise enough to turn up, Wolfgang and Michael (of The Nerves) and also to those from the Karlsruhe gig who came down! I feel very sorry for those I sent e-mails to about the gig, but did NOT appear (they should do all it takes to' WAKE UP)!

TV Chat / Yeah!

Yeah, it took a bit longer than planned. And I spend too much time in the net anyway, but as it's still fun sometimes, especially when we write about TV...

Now I know why I don't like music mags any more. They're evil... It's a simple fact.

TV Live / Tomorrow

I won't go tonight, Frankfurt is a bit too far. But I hope for another good gig in Stuttgart tomorrow. Might be tired on Sunday, so I just don't know if I'll make it to Munich...

TV Live / Cookies, Karlsruhe
« on: May 03, 2002, 09:13:38 AM »
Yes, Klaus, it was a cookie problem, I'm used to put them off whenever one comes along! Strangely though, today it works...

Anyway, I was in Karlsruhe yesterday, had no problem to find the venue as "Schwarzwaldstr." was the first street I came across when I arrived in KA. Venue looked very punky, with lots of graffiti across the house, but still a very impressive building! At first I thought it was going to be a "Gary Gilmore" night (when punks want to hear nothing else but this song), but in fact it turned out to be a brilliant gig!! The crowd was very loud, only downer was the fact that some were talking inbetween songs instead of listening to what TV said about his songs... But nevermind, it was great. Support band "Teenkrieg" did an excellent job playing with TV on some songs (Only One Flavour, My String Will Snap, GGE and more), especially when you consider it was their first time ever on stage together with TV! (I guess they practised the songs weeks before!) Obviously TV enjoyed this one, with girls dancing down the front of the stage and lots of cheering and shouting...
I will try to knock up a full review soon!

Don't know when TV will start tonight (hopefully sooner than yesterday, it was close to 12pm), but I guess if Marcus turns up at about 9 pm he won't miss anything...

Heard it yesterday in Karlsruhe, it's a good song, more of a quiet one if I remember correctly. But I liked "Not A Bad Day" more than this one... See you soon!

TV Songs / A reply!

Oh poor TJ, only 8 views (well that was a while ago), now finally you get a quick reply...
Good song, though not one of my Top 15 favorites. Thanks for the quote explaining what it's all about. And I'm surprised it was his biggest selling single after "GGE"!

TV Songs / Lion & the Lamb

I like that song too - even though I'm a guy!!
Like with many TV songs this is simply a true fact (that you have to be both strong and weak to be a whole human being), expressed in a good lyric...
