His summary was along the lines of "I could hardly hear the rythm section (he probably didnt realise there isn't one!), and all their songs sounded the same. I got bored and walked off."
Was a bit of an odd choice of fest for the TSOM, anyway. :|
In comparison to this, a friend of mine who's by no means a fan of the Sisters, but a black metal fanatic, was of the opinion that Sisters performance was musically the most powerful in the festival (topping bands like Venom, Celtic Frost and that ug greek band whose name i forget), and among the finest gigs he's ever seen (actually i got my first Sisters cd, Vision Thing, from him many a year ago, as he thought i might appreciate it more than him).

To each their own, I guess. But I still think it was the wrong choice of festival for them, Anathema too, for that matter. The fact that Petri wasn't hugely impressed with the current Sisters when he went to see the likes of Venom doesn't hugely surprise me.. :lol:

It's a hockey jersey of Star Trek's "United Federation of Planets".
He first wore it in Manchester in 2000, I believe.

I believe it has the same colours as the Boston Bruins.

Pittsburgh Penguins also have those colors, but it definitely looks similar to the Bruins' home dark jerseys. No idea what the UFP logo looks like, though.

Look, I follow BK Mladá Boleslav, so knowing the Bruins' colors is not that surprising. :oops:

I just spent half an hour having a look but the nearest one was this....
Image.....which in fact is nothing like it is it? :lol:

You'll just have to buy a Bruins jersey and stick a Trekkie badge on it. Even better customise it and make either a Tom Baker era Doctor Who jersey or a Blakes 7 one with Avons face on it. ;D

Although the Bruins jersey is similar, it is quite different to the UFP one. Boston's colours are more or less yellow/gold compared to the orange of the UFP one.

I defer all hockey question to our Canadian colleague. ;D The photos do look yellow/gold to me, not orange, though. Is that just the exposure of the shot? Otherwise, other than the different logo and black strips on elbows missing, this shirt and the Bruin's jersey look very close.

So, Brad, any insider picks on the Mann Cup? (Do you think that someone will assume that it is a hockey reference?:innocent:)

The UFP logo goes something like this:

It's also quite similar to my hometown team, the Brandon Wheat Kings...

Ahh yes, the Mann Cup, representing Canada's other official sport.

At least in that sport when someone goes down, they ain't getting back up, (not like that other "world cup") :innocent:

I am sure that the UFP one like AE's, unlike the Wet Kings, would have the same number on each shoulder. :wink: :innocent:

One world Cup is over; a World Championship starts on Thursday. ;D

Bit like that when I saw Laibach play in Helsinki last year.. I had to go on a one man m*****n to start a moshpit!



Also got some photos of the festival gig from my Finnish ex, so I'll crop them and post them in a few days time.. Just got to liberate the memory card out of her new camera..

Unless that number was 24.

Somewhat out of context with the tongue-in-cheek emoticons of the original post.... Of course the number is 24. :roll:

By the way, the mispelling of the team name was a typo. Sorry. :oops: Now, back on topic.
