So it looks like the UK Tut presense at EB is 0 (apart from maybe Brits who live in Germany).  If I remember there was only me in Essen 2 years ago (Sorry Alan!!).

To all my German friends, enjoy the weekend, I shall be there in spirit (hic!) .....

Thanks EKT!  :)
My festival ticket arrived via mail today, so I shall go next weekend too (30 Euro instead of 15 Euro * 4).

So it looks like the UK Tut presense at EB is 0 (apart from maybe Brits who live in Germany).

We will have to wait and see. As Gaye has an exhibition there, it's a good guess she will be present...

Will it work on my "Super 8"??


If there is demand we will do a Super 8 version with blue/red glasses 3D...

I nearly didn't make it as I caught some virus.
Kept me in bed all Thursday.
Gonna spread it in Augsburg, now...

Phew, glad you made it.
Not so glad about spreading virus, but I think Pale Ale will help against it (and against you if you come too close)...  ;D

Nearly packed & ready. Hope to be there around 6pm (looking at exhibits or offering a helping hand).  8)

I'll be off now. German autobahn surely will be fun on a Friday...  ::)

Don't expect any news updates by me before Sunday afternoon. (Someone else will step in, I hope.)
Let's have fun!  :D

I'm back home (obviously first?)...
First of all: those who couldn't make it, didn't only miss 2 GREAT gigs, but also a beautiful city (Augsburg is full of history: buildings, churches...)!
Thanks to all who were there, it was a pleasure!  :D
We had a great weekend, more details later...

Friday Oct 4th:
Arrival in Augsburg as planned. As I get out of my car near the "Altes Gaswerk", I see a van arriving, it's PamP & Verena. A quick hello, then inside one of the buildings, where I can hear TV doing soundcheck. Everything is set up, a lady behind the counter already waiting for orders - perfect! (Thanks so so much to all the people from ACUK!)
After a while the first few TUTS arrive. René & Mariann, Ilove & Wolfgang, Klaus and more (some I meet for the first time - always nice to meet new TUTS). Also, with only a 14-year-delay, I say "hello" to Gaye for the first time. 8)

All in all, it could've been more people to be honest. However we won't let our night be ruined with negative thoughts, so we just carry on.  :)
First beers are ordered, but white wine is not available, so we take a quick drive to get 2 bottles. (Everything necessary is done to keep the TUTS happy!)
Finally PamP is starting his solo support, playing some GG songs (but mostly ones the band won't play tomorrow), very good!
Then it's on to TV who plays a GREAT Earthbound set for us, mainly consisting of the songs for the new album (due 2014). Plus some rarities of course, "Soon as I found I lost it" and "Walk Away" are two of those which are VERY special for me to hear!

Saturday Oct 5th:
After a day I spend in Augsburg (very nice to walk around the town centre, I love it!), I meet some of the other TUTS (minus Klaus, who apparently is still in bed) for dinner in a bar/restaurant in Augsburg-Oberhausen. Then it's off to the "Altes Gaswerk" again, where the first band is playing (Dead City Rockets, not bad!), in the break(s) I look at the exhibition and/or meet more TUTS.
Jowe Head & the Demi-Monde are playing a very strange, quirky set (very different to the punk thrash of other bands, quite eccentric). Then Garden Gang are on and they are brilliant, despite the sound not being perfect, they radiate some incredible energy on stage!  :o
TV again plays a blinder of a gig. Klaus (who'd arrived meanwhile) had his doubts, with the audience being quite slim (not enough promotion for ACUK it seems), but it is the biggest crowd of the weekend and TV is on great form! Classic after classic, with a few new and rare ones inbetween! (Watch out for the setlist.)  8)

In short, we had a great EB weekend! Thanks to ALL involved!  :)

UK TUTS were really missing this time!   :(

At least Gaye was there and watched her TV:
022 (1024x768)
 :)
(Pic is from Sat show)

Thanks again to everyone who bought me a beer, much appreciated.  8)

Btw, Spizz was around on Fr/Sat, hanging about a bit with us at EB. He even did some crazy "karaoke" after the gig...  ::)

Would be very pleased to read some other peoples' verdict on the EB weekend!
What did you think, TUTS, did you enjoy it?

More pics found via FB (thanks V.!):
