Point Of Few, Zyklon B, The Attack Of The Fiesta @ Freak Club, Salinas SPA 05 January 2001
Oh wonder, while packing, it stops raining. But the sea is wild and on one of our obligatory cafeteria stops, we see on TV that we nearly escaped the bad areas in Pontevedra. Some horrific scenes of serious floodings. We’re arriving at 5 pm in Salinas and decide to spend some quality time at the sea. On our way we run into scenes of frantic children in the streets and heavy firework explosions. Today is Epifania (Twelfthnight or Epiphany), a festive day. Nevertheless Jop, Bolle and Marco go swimming. The waves are high and look dangerous but there’s lots of surfers active. Then we meet with the 3 Kings on donkeys accompanied by a circus of children and adults heading for the city. After 1 hour fun, we go for the concertplace. It’s cool to arrive in time! It starts raining heavy again. After driving around for 30 minutes we find out the bar is NOT in Salinas like we were told but in San Cristobal which cannot be found on any map. I try to call the organizer but no luck. Frust! We drive for another 30-40 minutes, asking the few walkers that defy this shit weather, until we finally find the place in the middle of fucken nowhere. We’re still early though. The bar, owned by a member of Posesion, is very cheerless and cold but downstairs is comfortable with a small stage. There’s about 30 people. We get some vegan sandwiches and drinks. During Attack Of The Fiesta, a Locust clone including keyboard, I go for some warm coffee. When I return, I see the last part of Zyklon B but can’t impress me mucho. I get updated by Uge/Don’t Belong and I hear alarming news about exclusive Spanish distro-deals. Pretty rigorous and controversial. We notice there were no posters/flyers made for this concert. PoF are quite fretful and play a convincing, high strung set. Yeah! They’re not satisfied but I really liked it. Afterwards, they work off the remaining frust thanks to the DJ who play His Hero Is Gone (a most overrated band i.m.o.). We sleep in Oviedo at the friendly Fiesta Beat-Brothers, but not before having a long walk through the citycentre.
