I haven’t posted in a few weeks because I was on tour in parts of Europe with TMODM. I just wanted to get a brief post up here and mention how eye opening of a trip it was. I’ll go into more detail in time. I plan to share a series of posts covering our journey. I shot a lot of street art and architecture. Look to alphastarephotography for a recent post on some graffiti. There will be some video clips and photos, there will also be links to exclusive content which will only be available to our Patreon supporters. The next step is to record the next album, which should be happening in the next few months and any support for our Patreon will help with production costs, so check that out.
Below is an excerpt from Jagerklause in Berlin. This was an amazing show and we hope to return again! This is just the last few parts of “Cassiopeia”, an epic song which will be on the next album. The photos in this post are by Andreas Steckmann.
I work on Saturdays, which seems to be when they have these events. Luckily there is some video! Here are a couple of videos with some short clips from a recent Robotspeak event courtesy of Franck Martin.
I had a really cool time getting to see The Flesh Eaters. This was interesting to me ’cause the last time they played in 2015 my band Andalusia Rose opened for them at Great American Music Hall…the time before that in 2007 at Slims my band with Javier Matos “Hud” opened up for them, which was the first time that classic line-up reunited in a really long time. Before that in the 90’s, as most of you know, I played guitar with the band and we released an album in 1999. So this was the first time I got to just watch the band and enjoy the music without being in that headspace of having to perform or load gear or whatever.
The chemistry between these guys is awesome, and having played a lot of these songs in a line-up that consisted of 2 guitars, I worked the most with Larry Schemel currently of Death Valley Girls, getting to hear the sax and vibes treatment was really cool. They even played a song I co-wrote from that 1999 release and that was a trip and an honor to hear coming from these guys. They also had a copy of our cd Ashes of Time along with the classic albums at the merch table.
There are still a few old fart punk bands out there and these guys have been around as long as anybody, but these were some dapper gentlemen laying down some heavy vibes (no pun intended…well maybe yes, the vibes were the loudest thing in the mix last night!) Hahahaha! Great show and an excellent turn out for a Sunday night! Glad I went.
This video shot by my friend Lil Mike actually captures a funny moment where Chris remembers, onstage that he forgot to put a certain someone on the list…someone who played guitar for him for years! hahaha! It was well worth the price of admission. Enjoy the fellas versions of “Green Manalishi” by Peter Green and “She’s Like Heroin to Me” by The Gun Club.
We’re pretty excited to announce the dates for our upcoming European tour! We will be in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Austria! We have 15 dates confirmed and 1 TBA.
