just woke up. oh man...almost miss my flight this morning....running I was, running! what an after party! 4 a clock in the morning still in the club somewhere in Brussels. metlook nice meeting you and only one word for you. Respect! nice meeting you Martin, real gent! how come EvdWee never turned up, same SY2004 and Trasher02???

yeah there's something with my recording as well Martin. I don't know if it was because I've recorded it on low gain or what, but it sounds like drums and Kim's mic is upfront then everything else and it's kinda "bassy" as well. I see if I can edit it somehow. it is listenable even like that though. I was standing quite in front in the middle.

so was that guy on stage filming you Jef??? nice to see you, hahahaha. will you put any snippets on YouTube???

I think sound was good, some mistakes in songs there and there, but it is normal. Steve is the man, I have to say it again. great drummer. Kim in very good form. Lee played some great "quiet minimal skronk" on new ones. why Thurston wasn't freaking out like he knows. or I'm not lucky or he's getting older, hehehe. 2 last concerts I've seen, there was no Thurston amps climbing and shit..

higlights of the concert for me was definitely DV'69 and Stereo Sanctity (finally I got to hear it live for a first time). then Massage The History and The Sprawl (I've seen it lots of times, but it is one of their finest, so I never get bored). actually it was nice to hear the whole new album live. Antenna, What We Know, No Way sounded great live. I love Malibu Gas Station on the album, but I didn't like it live, not that it's bad song live, but I was waiting for that noise, just before the end of the song, but they couldn't do it way it sounds on the album.

going listen to the concert so I can make better review.

Belgium people are very nice and friendly, from what I've experienced. I still don't understand that french/flamish thing, hahahaha. Brussels is nice, definitely going back sometime. I was expecting it to be bit cheaper, but probably because it was city centre prices.

oh and I love yr. bear. love it. starting 5.2% and upwards. great!

you forgot put What We Know on your setlist SY2004.

Haha, I'm pretty sure you guys stood a couple of meters away from me. I even looked at one of you guys and thought he looked familiar.

Yeah, I was filming on stage. I thought the gig was ok although they all were a bit on automatic pilot. The problem was that they all had problems at the airport in Berlin which made them bound to the ground for four more hours.
They were supposed to soundcheck at 16h but they arrived at 18h30.
So they didn't have time for a decent soundcheck hence the rushed feel of the gig I suppose.

The stagelights for this tour are amazing though. I shot everything in HDV and it looks great. I'm gonna do a 'That's what we know' like video for one of the songs with all the highlights of the gig and I'll post it on the Taping Policies website if that's cool with you guys.

I meant my website www.tapingpolicies.be

I use a Canon XHA1 HDV camera. the mic on that camera is amazing.
I have had many compliments on it's sound quality. The starving Weirdos release I did on cassete was recorded with my camera mic.

I film in 25p with a 1/50 shutter. I'm going to buy myself a SHOOt35 adapter soon so I can film with photolenses and actually kinda film in 35 mm or whatever you want.

I'll keep posted about the video

yes, have to control myself more.

mostly i'd go to places i haven't visit yet, so i kinda killing 2 birds with one stone. wanted to go to Berlin as well, but you need more then one day for that city, so i picked Brussels.

2 more SY gigs before the new year, so yeah, happy days. that will be 5 in total this year. but we live only once so...

now, I haven't been in states. to see SY in NY would be real deal. it's no problem for us (i mean us from "eastern" Europe) to get a visa to states these days + tickets from Ireland are reasonable + sometimes you can get realy good bargain. hope I'll can make it sometime.

yeah, we have to meet again on some festival or gig or something!

was he mixing any of SY stuff, coz after a gig I think I heard something like 100% remix or something, I'm not sure.

by the way, I think I got back to hotel around 4 a.m. ufff, too many beers, good party.
