Cursedendom

Wow. So its been a week. Mike almost didnt make it after a passport discrepancy, but it wouldn't be a Cursed tour if something didn't get hopelessly fucked up right off the bat. Few days later we were all in one place, at Sam's in Amsterdam. You'll never believe how the boys spent those few days (hint: equal parts Cheeching and Chonging). Then we were joined by Tomas. We played Tillburg (Holland) first night and it was the first crack we had at the rented backline, kept having to stop but it was still good. Night of driving and straight to a 5am (aka 9am) ferry. The BBC was amazing and the people were great, we did the session in John Peel's own Studio 4. There's one to make your balls tingle. We made it to Brighton, a few hours late, met the Aussie kids that came over, and were joined by the Wraith for the whole of the UK. Short version: It's been some memorable late nights with them since then. There's so much to say already about this week's shows, too much to write standing up in a Birmingham club, there's a lot of photos and I'll try & put up a whole album somewhere and link it when there's time and a place to do it, which is tight with no days off. But it was great to see old faces and new ones in Scotland, Wales and all over England. It's a boner having to part ways with the Wraith (and Johnny's brightly coloured, erection-incompatible shorts) after London tomorrow, but somebody has to rape and/or pillage Europe, no?

Everyone (Well, 99.9% of everyone) has to rape and pillage Earth and this video proves that.

"*required van reading: Lovecraft"

yes! i couldn't agree more! being stuck in a van with four other guys that smell horrible due to zero showers sucks, but get some lovecraft going while listening to something fucked like sunn o))), and you're set.

please come to edmonton sometime in the near future, i have an urge to destroy everything.

ICE HOCKEY.

I observed the show in Oslo last night and it was an epic occurence. Ruled out any contemporary bullshit in seventeen directions and turned the rest of the world largely irrelevant. YES.

I saw cursed for the first time last sunday and monday (their last 2 shows) and i can punch myself the whole day for not checking them out earlier!

too bad about what happened, me and some kids who are busy doing some benefit shows in holland to get some of the money back for cursed...hopefully it helps!
