After having seen the Bevis Frond at the ‘13th Dream of Dr Sardonicus’ Festival in Wales in August [my recording of that show is at: I decided that if there would be touring-activity of the band I would try to catch a few more gigs.
And fortunately there was a short tour, after the tourist(= my working-)season. I attended the shows in Hamburg on the 29th of September and in Berlin on the 1st of October, this is my recording of the Berlin show. I included a few photos of the show.
In Berlin I was so fortunate to be granted the use of a friend’s flat (although she wasn’t home, she organised I could pick up the key somewhere). It was at quite a distance from the venue, and because I always rather are 15 minutes early than 1 minute late, I left the flat very early. And I was very glad for that, because on my way I got a phone-call from Alan Last, the Magnificent Merch-Man of the Bevis Frond, telling me that the band would be on stage already at 8.30 pm, and would have to be finished at 10.00 pm, because there would be a techno-party from 11.00 pm in the same venue.
The Band wasn’t told about this beforehand either, but hey, that’s Berlin for you, more interested in money than in respect for the artists playing. I must say that as for German cities I by far prefer Hamburg.
So the concert was cut short, without ‘God Speed You To Earth’ as a second encore.
