Never alone with my thoughts
The rain comes and the rain goes
But Hamburg is not Seattle
The except for the tourists
The graffiti fades into the background
Jesus is the yin for the sexy devil’s yang
I am dating my anxiety
Learning his favorite color
Forgetting his birthday
Life is a Currywurst
You take it one piece at a time.
The sauce hold it together
Fresh faces inspire familiar feelings
I once searched Bremen for
What felt like hours
In search of
A new scarf
Today in 20 minutes
I’ve seen so many
I’m almost tripping over them.
If you’ve got a Deutschmark you can
Play the old video game
In our bedroom
And if you’ve got a dollar
I’ll tell the story of the first show
We played where people danced.
A handful of students in Leipzig
Have sealed my fate.

Wow! Blau in Mannheim was really great. Nice little crowd. Great vegan restaurant accross the street. What more could you ask. Cool pic here by our pal Tommy who put us on there last time.
Some interesting graffiti/public art in Mannheim.
Next stop Regensburg where we get to play the first of two shows in a row with the great Jenny Lund. Wonderful to share the stage with these guys and see Driver Klaus in action on the bass. Stay tuned for the new Nan and Drummer Lud Dub side project with the first single Fleisch For Fantasy. The next night we also played with Jenny Lund in the beautiful town of Gunzenhausen. We were hosted by Markus of the great band Sutcliff at his bar Caymen. We had some very special cocktails (or as they call them in Germany “Long Drinks.”) So tasty, wish we could have drank them longer.Next stop, the beautiful and mysterious city of Tobel, Switzeland. We played at the Komteuri (an old prison, now converted into an arts space and Pilgram guesthouse.) Stay tuned for a possible summer festival in 2012. Here we also had the best stage design ever thanks to our freinds Tom and Ursina.After Tobel it was off to Zurich where I had so much fun I forgot to take a picture. So, here’s a picture of the shy cat of Tobel.Then it was back to Germany, where we were reunited with our great friends Sigmar and Michaela. We also got to meet their very happy turtle: Charlene.Darmstadt, was next where it was wonderful to see our good friends Woog Riots and Alex and Torsten of Mine. We were back at the Oetinger Villa. The backstage ceiling there was very trippy so I had to take photo. It kind of reminded me, a little, of an Arshile Gorky painting. Our old friend Thomas in Cologne now owns a bar called the Hanging Garden. We played a free show there that was really great. Here’s a pic of Thomas, Matt and Andy (driver) sporting their special sexy looks.And last night it was back in Bremen at the wonderful Spedition.Here’s our morning after shot. And on that note we’ll leave you with this pic of Nan about to attack a large block of Gouda cheese. Thanks to everyone who has come out to see us. It’s been great. Looking forward to see you Oldenburg, Hannover, Hamburg, Nantes, Paris and UK!!!
XO, Nan and Matt.
