    This review was originally published on http://skambankt.konzertjunkie.de. You can also find more photos there.

    Skambankt at Blå Grotte

    Another weekend trip to Norway, including two Skambankt concerts, yeah! And this time, it was actually a lot more than "only" concerts, but a lot of sightseeing, sitting in the sun and... driving. Argh.

    OK, having a car in Norway is great, you actually get to where you want to go, and a lot easier than with public transport. But well, I kept wondering why Norwegian cars even have a fifth gear, I HATE roundabouts (especially 2-lane roundabouts, and even more especially roundabouts where you can't tell if it's 1 or 2 lanes...), and you probably have to be Norwegian to not mind throwing your money out of the window all the time. Literally. (But okay, it's better than spending an hour in Tønsberg checking about all gas stations there to find a way to pay the f*%$ing toll...)

    Anyway. I made it into Oslo without problems, picked up Linda, and we went on our way discovering Østfold. …

    So here's how it works:
    Open your choice of music player [iTunes, Limewire, Kazaa, etc.] and put it on SHUFFLE.
    Press play.
    For every question type the song that's on.
    And when you go to a new question press the next button.
    No cheating.

    Opening credit: Zero7 - Crosses

    Waking up: Incubus - Light Grenades

    Average day: Geir Zahl - Hold On (Live Version *g*)

    First date: Interpol - C'mere

    Falling in love: Johnny Cash - One Piece At A Time

    Fight scene: The Futureheads - Trying Not To Think About Time

    Breaking up: Mogwai - I Know You Are, But What Am I?

    Getting back together: The Cranberries - Disappointment (well..not the best omen..)

    Life's okay: Claudio Baglioni - Ragazza di Campagna

    Mental Breakdown: Eels - Wrong About Bobby

    Driving: Badly Drawn Boy - Born Again

    Flashback: R.E.M. - Exhuming McCarthy

    Partying: The Raconteurs - Together (fits better on an other place *gg*)

    Happy dance: The Vines - I'm Only Sleeping (omg!)

    Regretting: Tocotronic - Schatten Werfen Keine Schatten
  • The concertjunkie survey!

    20 mars 2007, 22h40m par lurk

    Okay. I don't do those survey things. Never. A matter of principle.

    But well, if someone sends me a concertjunkie-survey, I don't really have a choice, or do I? And at least I can brag a bit like that. =;-)

    So here we go:

    What was the last concert you attended?
    El*ke in Stuttgart
    Had seen them at a festival once and liked them, but didn't really know any songs. But the concert was really great! Even though I was actually sitting at the side, as I was just too tired to get up...

    How many people were there?
    Not many. Maybe a hundred?

    What bands have you seen in concert the most, and how many times?
    Kaizers Orchestra: 64x
    Die Ärzte: 45x
    The Busters: 29x
    Actually, there's 10 different bands I've seen 10 or more times... check the list here.

    Do you have any set lists? From what bands?
    I mostly have photos of setlists, but I also have a few "real" ones. Of Skambankt and Kaizers Orchestra, and I think one of Die Schröders as well, but I don't remember where I put that...
  • By:Larm 2007

    11 fév. 2007, 22h45m par Cupola

    Journal på norsk er ålreit. Eg har vore i Trondheim i helga, jobba frivillig på By:Larm og fått med meg ein drøss konsertar. Skal prøve å oppsummere litt på ein relativt kort måte her.

    Torsdag 8.

    Kom meg til Trondheim ganske seint torsdag kveld, og måtte sjekkast inn som frivillig og få festivalpass og slikt før det var klart for noko som helst, men kvelden begynte så smått innom 200. Det var egentlig ikkje så ille, men det holdt ikkje stort lenger enn 3-4 sangar før det var ok å gå og gjere noko anna.

    Vi kjøpte bongar i ein håplaus kø før vi gjekk vidare. Vi svima såvidt innom johndoe, men dei har eg sett såpass mange ganger før at det ikkje var spesielt spennande, spesielt sidan dei ikkje har klart å fornye seg på ein interessant måte dei siste åra.

    I alle tilfeller var det bestemt at vi skulle sjå New Violators, og eg troppa opp uten forventningar til kva eg kom til å få sjå (som så mange andre ganger i helga). Dette blei for min del ein av dei virkelig positive overraskelsane…
  • Music to look out for in MMVII

    10 jan. 2007, 20h03m par Bastard1

    Ayup, it's a new year, and with nothing but a FEW great releases within music.

    Skambankt - Eliksir
    Geoff Berner - The Wedding Dance of the Widow Bride
    Zahl - Nice for a Change
    Sondre Lerche - Phantom Punch
    Cloroform - Clean
    Hock your Britney Spears albums, burn your Fergie albums and condemn your Panic! At the Disco records to eternal damnation! Get these NOW! Or you are officially bland in musical taste, or living in some place where these records will not be released.

    Peace be with ya'll.
