Olho Seco, The Prunella Scales @ Café De Engel, Den Helder 05 September 1999 (Afternoon Gig)
Sunday Afternoon: I get knocked up by the mobile phone at 9 am. They’re bringing in the missing suitcases from the airport. Duh! Two concerts this day. Den Helder is a small city very popular with marines coz it has a naval base and is situated in the top of north-west Holland. The concertplace is a cosy small bar with no stage. They often do concerts here and atmosphere is usually very good and informal. It is beautiful weather so we check out the sea and walk on the dikes. Back at the bar we meet Mike D. of Tuco Ramirez and Billy Boycot. Prunella Scales is good punk in the vein of old SF surf/skatepunk like Adolescents, Agent Orange… Cool. Fabio goes nuts with the mikestand. The small crowd and Mike, the barowner loves it. At around 20.00 we start driving to Utrecht for the second gig.
