[december 17th, 2013]
Looking at their faces while playing our songs, I know this is good. This feels good.
One day later after our last rehearsal, the songs are still playing in my head. The setlist is like a rush of images and emotions, passing by as stills. Looking at their faces while playing our songs, I know this is good. This feels good.
We set up our gear, ate some birthdaycake and drank coffee (sounds real badass and rock n roll) and kicked our set of songs into motion. We smoothed out the last wrinkles and played it through for the last time before packing. Upcoming friday it’s showtime on Roesjpop and we do hope lots of people come down to see our show. This time one year earlier, I knew within the first minute of listening to them I would want to be here and be a part of this great group of individuals. It makes me proud to go onstage alongside them and let you all enjoy what we love to do.
On a personal note I would like to add that I gave up making music forgood in 2012. I retired myself from playing in bands and writing songs after hitting rockbottom on several matters. Almost exactly one year later this friday on Roesjpop, we will perform a new song called ‘I will not go under’. The title says it all. As long as you breathe, you can fight. If you need it as bad as you need to breathe you will succeed.
Hope to see you next friday in Guttecoven [NL]
