Catweazle / Art.64 (FRA) @ McEwan’s Pub, St. Jean De La Ruelle / Orleans FRA 15 November 1997   Leave a comment

Nice venue, in a basement of an Irish pub. Pretty good turn up (around 170), and it’s warm down there. During soundcheck we were specifically instructed to play as quiet as possible, apparently a sound restrictions problem. So we played our slowest song (Cash and Pain Remain), and turned it into a bad rock song, with inspirationless drumming. We had troubles doing vocals due to laughter cause it sounded so bad.
Some folks were early, and by the looks of it, some were considering going back home hahaha.
Show was great, awesome reception and a pretty memorable time.
Anyone with live pics of this show: get in touch! We don’t have any.

Nice and small info-shop. We set up the equipment and do some soundchecks. We have to start early because of noise-problems and people begin to urge us to start but there is no vocal-equipment yet. When that arrives, we have to move the concert…. It appears they have another concertroom, in the cellar! We move all the equipment and start later. First song is hilarious, with absolutely no audience. Mike D. is going crazy. Slowly the room is filling up.

Catweazle / Growing Up @ C.S.A., Gijon SPA 9 May 1997   Leave a comment

We finish the food from this nite. They made food for 2 bands. Road to Gijon is great along the sea. We meet with Uge, our tourcoördinator in the C.S.A. Within seconds there are 10 people helping us to get the stuff out of the van. The C.S.A. is a beautiful place inside the CNT building (latest news – july 1998 – is they got evicted because the CNT wants their property back… crazy situation!). The cellar contains the concerthall. Erik meets someone he knows from Amsterdam (hello Fidel). Lots of people came to the concert. Although we don’t play that well, it’s great again. After the concert Axe is going nuts with his Casio. After a thorough cleaning of the C.S.A. we go to Uge’s place. The weather’s warm and the streets are crowded. Mike D. discovered Gijon as a skate-paradise and is hardly seen anymore off his board.

We hear Palencia got cancelled the very last minute. Fortunately we can play tonight at a smal fest. The bands are prepared to play 15 minutes shorter each, so we can play. GREAT! We hang around Gijon some more and leave for Oviedo later that day. It’s in a commercial bar and there’s an open stage which is cool. We park the van near a football square. Axe, Emil and Mike D. team up and play against 3 very young locals: Holland – Spain. It never ends and we arrive at the concert during the Outcry set. They sound very convincive. During our set I have problems with the sound – actually no sound. Very hard to keep track. Mike D. is going crazy on his board again.
