Switzerland to Milano
We arrive at Sedel club Lucerne -and we are greeted by the sight of a cow ! .We’ve only been away for 8 days but the sight of an alternative life form is thrilling .She stares back at us -hopefully shes thinking the same thing ?
The club is cool , dub music playing -i’m happy . I enter the dressing room / kitchen and i’m greeted by friendly,welcoming faces and the succulent smell of chicken cooking on a bed of herbs –ahhhhhhhh .Don’t worry ,there’s a vegetarian option for our man Leigh .I gotta say ,i’m pleased it isnt beef as I wouldnt want to upset my new found friend .
The food is hot and very tasty and I just about digest it in time to take the stage -all good .Nice people come to our gigs -a lot of people seem to be smoking -a bit harsh on the old vocal chords but we survive the onslaught and at least it saves on dry ice ! Once again I wonder how is it that people smoke like troopers ( where does that saying come from?) -in clubs and bars all over germany. I dont really like the smoke but I kinda like the fact that they just ignore the european ruling .I’ve never been one for rules .
The gigs good ,we dont get many echoes though from the house soundman -in general we have been lucky on this tour though.Thank you Martin and all at Sedel club .
In the morning we hit the road for Milano The scenery is breathtaking but difficult to capture as we plunge into tunnel after tunnel catching fleeting glimpses of expansive lakes and moutain peaks .. (more…)
