Here We Go Again

By Ritch | December 2, 2009

We’re off on another merry little trip to the frozen shores of Scandinavia. I have to say, last winter’s trip left me slightly jittery after experiencing minus fourteen on the frozen midnight ferry which had to break it’s way through the frozen seas to reach it’s frozen destination. It was more of an eye closer than an eye opener.

But this time I’ve come prepared. Converse, as good as they are for drumming in, don’t really cut it as an all terrain snowshoe. So this year I’ll mainly be wearing the hide of pre-historic woolly mammoths, along with some very flattering thermal underwear made by that classic top Savile Row designer – Thinsulate. Let’s face it, you’re past caring about your appearance once your lips have fallen off. I dare say I won’t be so agile around the drum kit, but god damn it I’ll be warm.

    Just go for the “over 80s arthritis chic” look and you never know, it might just catch on…

    I know what you mean, Ritch.

    Lake District + Snow + Converse = falling on arse.

    I´d just like to thank you for an awesome performance in Gothenburg last night – despite the fact that so few people turned up. Putting on such a GREAT show in such a good mood under those circumstances was a real treat.
    We thank you and apologize on behalf of all the m****rf****rs who didn´t turn up, and we hope it won´t disencourage you to ever play in Sweden again ;-). Really hope to see you at the Sweden Rock Festival soon!!!

    I totally agree with you Mats.
    The Gothenburg-show was incredible!!!
    The gig in Stockholm was absolutely fantastic but this one was one of a kind!

    So thank you guys, you are brilliant! 🙂

    Sad to see Ritch not getting up and singing 🙂 But I agree, we had a wonderful time the few of us at the GBG gig. Was well worth the train ride from South of Sweden. 🙂 Pictures from said show:
