Freak Valley Festival 2013
AWO Park, Netphen, Germany
May - 30 - 2013
First day / Act # 2 (19:50 -> 20:40)
from SPACEBANDIT archives
OKM2R mics -> Zoom H2n (at WAV 16/44) -> SDcard -> HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...
Recorded by dear taping buddy MIROH very close to the the stage center. A bit of chatter here an there, and a bit of moving sound from the main system, but nothing that would be
too annoying. Some pictures by dear LORD DIE are included as well, as he got the right camera that could not lie (quote: Hawkwind). All thanks to him and the taper.
SPACEBANDIT'S DOWN HOME BLUES REVIEW
First of all I'd like to express my deepest thanks to all those organizers/volunteers/security people who made this second edition of FREAK VALLEY possible. Thank you very very much,
as last year, despite the difficult weather conditions, it was a place felt like home. Also, a big thanks to the entrance guy who let us park/sleep on the usual ground, just a mere 100
meters walk to the stage. Refreshing "batteries" between acts is a very important thing. And the four of our gang did not leave a ciggy trace there on sundaze morning.
Second thanks to my taping buddies, BLUESHACKS and MIROH, for lifting the burden of ongoing taping day for day from me. YOU both guys did the really hard work, whereas me poor little
soul just managed to do a few of the acts. I wasn't in really good condition, but was I really ever into that? So, when the water went dry (a joke I shouldn't do, regarding the flood
desaster in southern/easter Germany, or Czechia/Poland), there was a great friend of mine, Mr. RENDEL to his advanced service. Hands down, he might give you the best tapes from this.
Oh, well, on a personal note: This festival was visited by a mostly younger crowd, and all the tapers there were at least 44+ of age. Hmmm...that's me. Hmmm...where are the rookies?
Act #2 from the first day at lovely Freak Valley Festival features a very young and talented band from Stockholm, Sweden. They just released their first 7" record on WHOCANYOUTRUST
records, which features the most impressive song of this set. Their music is far more psychedelic than the opening band, Bushfire, was. Strong influences from 70's progressive rock are
mixed well with modern stoner rock elements, and above all is the enchanting female voice and violin which made their sound a bit more of a surrealistic pillow to put your head and mind
into. Oh, and dare I say that the visuals were also very nice? So, here's the first of many personal hightlights from 2013's edition of FREAK VALLEY. Enjoy! SB.
