Sooo: I was called on short notice to do a gig in Krakow over the weekend after one of the headlining bands pulled out. So off we all trotted to Poland via (not-so) Easyjet Saturday morning.
Again, sorry about the shite pics, my camera phone refuses to take a picture in focus.
Not really a fan of the old Easy Jet as you kinda have to pay for everything once on-board. Although we did get speedy boarding ( you gotta love the name eh! ) which means you don't have to fight for a decent seat. Complete useless on the return journey though as all it means is that you get on the bus that takes you to the plane first? You still have to fight for a seat when you get to the actual plane?
Bit stupid really.
Still though, we got there.
Weird festival, there was like, 3 hour gaps between each band?? Never heard of anything like that before.
Anyway, great gig, and the band got loads of press whilst playing + some good reviews the next day in the local papers.
+ our own Winnebago for a dressing room
I also got the chance to check out Underworld on the other stage who, I must admit, were shit. They spent the whole gig looking at a bunch of computer screens on-stage with their backs to the crowd. Great!
Superb showmanship lads... Superb /sarcasm.
Went clubbing afterwards to this place that seemed to be full of English stag parties. Not saying much at all to be honest, so I went to bed.
Back on the plane and back home yesterday evening.
I'm off to Poland again next weekend with another band to play in Gdansk, a weird Polish seaside resort.
What else? Oh yes, I've just discovered that I'm staying in this place whilst in Barbados for two weeks working in November. Can't wait, especially for the fact that I haven't had a proper holiday in six years.
Screams of " PROPER FUKIN HOLIDAY MR COKEHEAD, ALL YOU DO IS JET OFF HERE AND THERE YOU TOSER???"
Yeah but it's mostly work.
And that's about the size of that for my weekend.
OK, I'm off out with B and the dogs to enjoy this gloriously sunny day.
That'll teach you you little bugger
