SUNSHINE DAYS ON MUDDY MOUNTAIN
It's a SPACEBANDIT, so you're in there!
OKM2R -> ZOOM H2n (WAV 16/44) -> SD card -> HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...
Recorded by yours truly sitting comfortably on a flightcase center stage app. one meter from the band. All is well and fine here, no chatters audible. Due to the short distance between
this very small stage and the other BIG ones you can hear far distant sounds during the song breaks. But nothing to be worried about. A few pics are included as well..
Where to start? A rather 2.5 hours drive to meet the friends in the village below the HOLY MOUNTAIN but a quite very entertaining seven hours in a line waiting to get pulled up
by some tractors through the muddy grounds of the HOLY MOUNTAIN. And it was a real good time in line! Never did I have experienced such a joyful afternoon with unknown lovers of this
mighty fabulous festival in pure joy and fun (and without any mindalterting things!) that those seven hours seed to be like seven minutes! Until I got my car pulled over that muddy ground.
That was where the fun stopped, but luckily the old Ford Mondeo survived once more. Most likely it was "his" last journey to any festival, driven me safely through the last ten years from
show to show. And sometimes to "work"...
My personal BIG thanks are to our campground-crew: Olaf+Alexandra from Hannover, Klaus from Dortmund, Uwe from Kaiserslautern area, the great acoustic guitar slinger Martin from
Bochum, and, of course, my dear brother and lovely sister-in-law M+M for having a real good time! Thanks for support, kindness and love!
Grateful thanks also to my taping buddies Propylaen, kurzrefe and Sunhair for company and support, to all the other tapers I met for nice talk and fun. Of course to fellow psychonaut
Markus from Wetter/Ruhr for backing me up with "silence" at various shows! Amazing to meet such a gentle person! See you soon!All the other nice people I met, like Ralph, Arne and Annelise,
Freddy, Uli, DrIncluding and all I may have forgotten...
At last a real big thanks to the HERZBERG crew, kind security, and the boys and tractorgirls who pulled us up there! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Oh, btw...NO thanks to the asshole chatters at the Patti Smith show 2nd row left side, which made me stop recording for the first time in 12 years of taping! YOU FAGGOTS SUCK! BUGGER OFF!
To all the others...see you again in 2015 at the HOLY MOUNTAIN! SB
Nah, here's a short but very BIG surprise from the HOLY MOUNTAIN'S smallest stage. Rather than enjoying RPWL on the main stage, I decided shortly before to move my ass to the Mental Stage
for some three young guys from Kassel, Germany. In the festival book they were announced as very much influenced by the music of such marvellous great psychedelic stoner rock acts like
THE MACHINE or the (unfortunately disbanded) SUNGRAZER (both from the Nederland). And - I got really lucky to have captured their performance! Though it's not all gold on their show, there
are a lot of nuggets to be discovered here. And from a Stoner's heart and mind: I really enjoyed their short set, with a lot of talent and even more potential upstairs.
If you like them please give'em a shot on their facebook account. The band has yet no official releases to be sold anywhere, but I know that'll change change soon if there's a help from
me (the taper) and you (the listener/enjoyer). And now, here comes some very GOOD STONER "VIBE" for your personal delight! SB.
