Makiladoras, Words Mean Nothing, Scarlet Adorns The Snow @ Club Orbital, Gdańsk POL 11 March 2006
This is gonna be a long drive. Marian and Sławek are our official guides now. We get up at 9.00, bad luck to miss saying goodbye to I KNOW, depart at 11.00 and arrive at Wolf’s place in Gdansk rather early at 16.00 where we get a warm meal, see Krolik again and meet with SCARLET and WORDS. It keeps amazing me how big a crowd they are. It definitely makes it very difficult to keep track who is who. The club is a nice one. Downstairs the concert/dj room and upstairs the actual bar. The place is totally full and this time I have the chance to check SCARLET properly and am impressed. They play a really tight and powerful set, and I’m once again enthralled by their guitars. Too bad they haven’t recorded yet. During WORDS I hear that Wolf was hit with a bottle by a nazi/hooligan. They haven’t experienced hooli-violence here since ages. Is it because of us? Remember Fleas And Lice in 1992? Anyway, problem seemed to be solved rather quickly thanks to some ex-hools that are present as well and the injury is not too bad. During the first couple songs, we see the whole family present in full football uniform. I guess it was a bit too loud and hectic for the small kid… because the place goes totally insane. Eva gets lifted, heavy Rick is lifted but with usual difficulty. It takes them about a full minute orso and needless to say it looks hilarious. When Michel gets lifted, we do lots of parts without guitar. Can’t remember if the cops came but we stop early. Have a nice afterparty upstairs and crash at Wolf’s place.
