awesome show at nottingham last night – my first time seeing the band and hopefully not the last. Hope Thierry is doing ok.
Rescue Rooms is such a homely place… your fellow countrymen (and woman) Cowboy Jukies did an acoustic show there a year or so back and were commenting on how they wanted nice venues with tables for people to sit and be comfortable… and turned up to find beer all over the floor and vomit on the stage. some of that has now been cleaned up (or worn away with time) but the ambience remains.
enjoy the rest of the tour….
“down in the sand and the alleys, this land punched-in, cuffed-out, divided, held like a crucifix in a deathhand, this land bought, resold, bought again and sold again…” Charles Bukowski, Crucifix in a Deathhand. It’s the same for the people as for the land.
Doesn’t do much for the old paranoia now does it?
SMOKE THE FIRE!!
really enjoyed the gig in Camden … c’etait vraiment super!
I listen your music while i try to write my new book.
an italian fan.
I’ll be singin your songs from 4pm today outside St. George’s church. Hang in there Thierry, and the rest of you beautiful people 🙂
Bad scenarios + sweet people + good beer = hopefully a good time for you all.
Saw you at Leeds, Nottingham and Sheffield. Interesting to chart the steady increase in venue size and cringe-worthy audience behaviour. Thoroughly captivated by every minute of your music though. Hold steady, keep at it. Thank you.
in america at least, cringe-worthy audience behaviour is a hallmark of any mt. zion show. the first time i saw them was at the empty bottle in chicago on the ’06 tour. during the beginning of ‘blindblindblind’ someones cell phone went off, loudly. they proceeded to then answer it a carry-on a conversation until, if i remember correctly, the band actually stopped the song until the person hung up.
Really Bob? That makes me cringe with embarrassment that that even happened. Other audience members should step in and tell him to take that shit outside.
sadly it’s all true. and unfortunately it was lollapalooza weekend so there were a lot of drunk indie-rock kids the 3 show run that mt. zion did at the empty bottle (that said, there were a lot of us who were there for the band and dug the shows, especially 30 minute ‘ring them bells’ on the first night and the ‘movie never made’ & ‘triumph of our tired eyes’ at the third show). a few people tried to get the guy to hang up but for the most part these things just turn into arguments that detract from the performance even more.
