Volume 20 @ Worm, Rotterdam 27.06.2001
w/Orchid (USA)


Michael: The van broke down between Assen and Hoogeveen and we were transported back to our rehearsalplace in the ORKZ (thanks to ANWB roadservice). Bas was already on the way to Rotterdam but decided to return and pick us up to try to still make it to the concert (250 km). We already were way too late but after a rather insane race we were surprisingly welcomed by a waiting crowd at the venue and excruciating nonstop hardcore & gabberbeats in the venue. Needless to say, this was a total chaotic and adrenaline driven concert. One of those unforgettable crazy nights! 

From the website: We packed our “Cavia Express I” van with loads of friends and everybody is set for a great day. After 20 km the van breaks down. We’re lucky to roll on to a gasstation and the ANWB roadservice guy recommends to have the van towed to a garage. Bas was already on his way to Rotterdam when we phoned him and asked if he could drive back (some 100 km) and pick us up. In the meantime we get a ride back to Groningen in the towingtruck, dump all our friends and equipment at our rehearsal and race with Bas his car to Rotterdam. We arrive around 22.00 and everybody’s still waiting for us because ORCHID was a big disappointment. Daan, who was with us on the Cavia Express I, took a train to Rotterdam with his friend Wouter (both playing now in THE ARCHITECT) and they arrive at the exact same moment. During extreme loud techno and gabberbeats, we set up the equipment. Needless to say, our adrenaline level is set to maximum so right on the first tunes, an hellish inferno breaks loose. We threw everything out and we got 100% back from the crowd. Truly perfect interplay. When we start the song Robot Wars, 2 live robots appear from the back and start a fight. Enter scattering chaos. Everything was videotaped and put on the Dead Man MCD. Thanks again to Boris Kansloos for recording this out of that whirling and sometimes dangerous pit!

Michael: Nice shot of a broken stick within 1 minute into the set!

Mushroom Attack   Leave a comment

Mushroom Attack Logo-1

Meaning bandname: You can see two meanings: An atomic nuclear mushroom cloud explosion in the sky or some magic mushrooms exploding in your head.

History: After E.N.E. split up, Maynard, Robbie and Piet decided to start a new band with the help of Juul on bass and Janine on vocals. We did our first gig in our squat the WNC on 13.08.89 as HUMAN ERROR. We changed the name from REALITY ATTACK into MUSHROOM ATTACK.

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.
