Working for me!

I think 'metal as f**k' might be an understatement:

Any kind of dressing-up is encouraged as long as the safety of your gear is taken into consideration. When rushing about in the front row you may harm a fellow celebrant with your nail bracelet. At the gate of the festival area the crew will check your outfit and remove everything considered dangerous, eg. bracelets made of nails.

Just saw 'em live...

Nice stuff, could have played more my favourites though. I had maybe 6 pints of beer and a bit of vodka + a few hits of hash before the show and soon ran out of water and had nothing but pure vodka to drink and cigarrettes to smoke. Needless to say, I got very drunk.... I was just there stoned and drunk, staring at Andrew through my sun glasses and enjoying in the show...

They did an encore which I knew they would, I wouldn't have had it any other way :) It was great seeing The Sisters for the first time...

Wish I could have been there back in 1985...

Am I being over speculative?

Von ended the gig by saying "gotta go feed the cats". This was the last gig of the summer and we all know the cat reference.


Oh well, nice gig anyways. Don't know how much other people enjoyed it, someone behind me commented during Dominion that it was the second song he recognized.

Top Night Out
Vision Thing
Temple Of Love


Great gig, Vision Thing rocked like a mother f****r. There where some problems with Ben´s guitar, otherwise great sound, Andrews voice really loud and clear.
Before Top Night Out Chris brought a female paper figure out on the stage and put it in front of Andrews mike stand. Think it was Kylie Minouge in a bikini might have been Izabelle Azdjani as well, was a bit back from the stage.

The audience ? F**k me, Finnish people seems to like chit chatting, drinking, making out, sitting on the ground playing "bottle going round", doing everything else then watch the band on stage.

Hi goes to Eggi and Eva. I hope Eva is well, she got bitten by a nazty little goth bugger in the front row.

Thank you Sisters! Beautiful as they always are. But screw me for not being able to stand up or do much anything else by the time they got on stage.

Thanks for the good wishes. I´ve got a bruise the size of a small hand now, and no, I didn´t bite back, but I pulled her f**king hair extensions out of her brainless f**king goth bitch head.... :evil: And if I ever see that slut again, she´d better not be on her own... :evil:
Celebrations done, more to come, hopefully.

Meanwhile: I'm still confused but on a higher level... :-)

Well that saves me the need to answer your question Stephen. :lol: Eva, I hope you pulled upwards - it's a hell of a lot sorer than downwards. NOt that I'm in any way encouraging violent behaviour on this list. :innocent:

List?

I don't think there's been quite enough infighting and pseudo-intellectual squabbling to warrant a comparison to Dominion, Andrew :lol:
