Freak Stage (app. 18:45 -> 20:10)
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/volume balance+boost only) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...
Recorded by yours truly (unfortunately without the aid of a barstool/bartable) at front row almost dead center (about 1 meter to the right) with the mics comfortably resting on a
Grateful Dead-Hoody hung above the ceiling. This recording has almost nothing to complain about. Picture perfect, at least to my rotten ears. A few nice pics are inclded 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 past 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
Again, I can't be too objective on this show, as this great band is from my home area of the so called "Muensterland". I was happy to experience their rather short show on FREAK VALLEY
a few months ago, so I was really eager to see a complete show at the HOLY MOUNTAIN. And somehow my expectations were more than filled. Besides two superb covers, the band celebrated their
fine songwriting skills on older, newer and even more a brandnew song. I would even go further on saying that this new song "A penny and a dead horse" was the real highlight of their set,
but all others were nothing less exciting. All thanks to the kind four guys of the band for a fabulous show in the sunset of this years final day on the BERCH.
Join in the fun for some 80 minutes of pure joyful music! SB.
