Photo Blog - Germany

Hello,

We are midway through our tour with Mona, thanks to everybody who has come to the shows so far. We’ve got a few more dates to go, so make sure you get down to them, dates are on our website and myspace. Here are a few photos from out recent tour in Germany, enjoy.

We drove 1200 km in 18 straight hours to make our first gig in Halle, this was at 3 in the morning under the channel on the train.

We got to Halle at 12 after having about 3 hours sleep and explored some of the town.

Humming Records took us out for some very nice food in Berlin.

We got a bit too into table football.

After the gig in Berlin we went out to Cookies, those of you that are German will know what I’m talking about. Minimal electro until 8 in the morning. This was taken walking back to the hotel after one too many tequilas and a very nice McDonalds breakfast.

Next day was Hamburg, we had played this venue last time we went to Germany so it was nice to go back.

The hotel in Hamburg, there were about 10 of us all sleeping in this tiny flat. But Sam and Adam(from Red Drapes) kept us entertained with some improvised song making.

Russelheim. We stayed with the promoter who was called Santiago. Probably the nicest promoter in the world. We got back to his house after a good show and some tasty burgers and had a couple of drinks.

The morning after Frankfurt, all feeling a bit tired and hungover.

Chemnitz in East Germany was a bit like Russia. It was the first day of the festive period for the Germans so it was a bit chaotic further in town.
