Recorded by dear taping brother Lars almost dead center front row in the blazing heat of that saturday afternoon. Excellent recording, all fine. Nothing really to complain. Dear Lars
checked on the mics volume a few times, but I think I got that fixed well. A few pics from my crappy camera are included as well, as me lazy bastard just arrived for the encores...
Spacebandit notes...on BURG HERZBERG 2015...
My 20th anniversary at the HOLY MOUNTAIN couldn't go wrong long before. During last winter time my dear taping brother Lars from Oslo decided to join in the fun. What's been "just" a
"tape connection" which was seeded on DIME developed into a real fine friendship during the holy days. If there's a proof that DIME connects people from other countries, which would
probably never met, than this might be it. So...more details...
HOLY MOUNTAIN 2015
Ticket Fee: Very Early Birds (80 Euros)
Weather: only one strong rainshower at early thursday, moderate daylight 20+ then on sat/sun up to 30+, fucking cold nights...(but we're used to that)
Most likely the best weather conditions at HOLY MOUNTAIN ever! Dust instead of Mud!
Catering: about ten really good food booths ranging from african over indian to local food. Gorgeous! Nice prices, too.
Drinking: no hard stuff, usually bad beer, but if you knew, there were some booths selling "Pilgrims Stuff", which was tasty at 3.50 Euros. Plus 3 Euros Return.
That was a downer as I really liked it (in the past) when the kiddies "steal" my cup for 1 Euro return. I wouldn't have bothered about...
Special thanks to...
The Burg Herzberg Organzing crew, helpers, lightning and sound magicians, the many cool people that I met and had a real nice talk, the cool neighbours at our campsite in the middle
of nowhere, but "deep from the heart" thanks to the real nice people who shared the "camp" with me, my brother Martin, sister-in-law Martina, Olaf and Lola, the "Wanderer" Klaus,
the mighty great one-man-band Martin from Bochum (Stoppok songs always work!), the cool tapers I met first time like Gunnar or Greener, and, of course to my norwegian friend Lars.
Good shows, perfect weather, great time..indeed. All worth doing it 20 years so far...
CROPREDY or BURG HERZBERG? Is there any significant difference? At least not for the band. The perfect music at a very sunshiny day, far better than a night gig some many years ago
at the same place. Listening to this, I know that both the band and the audience really enjoyed this show. So, why not jump right straight into it? SB.
