Schwervon! Fantastico Tour 2014: Mainland Europe

Had a day off in Lille, France today, so we thought we’d share some pics from the last 3 weeks. Where has the time gone? Only 3 more shows left in the mainland of Europe and then we’re back to the UK for four more shows with The Vaselines before flying back to the US. Enjoy!

The meat of life is for sharing… Wednesday, October 29, 2014 / Lille, France #SchwervonPoetry

IMG_4247.JPG
I am a bird
Kakaww. Kakaww.
L’oiseaux ce moi.

It’s a Charlie Brown
Kind of day.

There is alway a path for fear
Fear
Sometimes you can taste it
Like sugar in the frosting
Of an expensive pastery

And sometimes
it is a smell
Like the tired dead skin
That collects behind the ears
Of an old man

The greatest fear is that
It is all for nothing

All the work and the stress
Worth nothing more than the energy
Burned in the process

It is why some live their lives
As though they were being filmed
Each second
of each day

We fill our blood with fire
And dance away the monster
We let our hearts share the space

The meat of life is for sharing
We consume our little deaths
Together, with strangers, like family
Like music.

(This poem was originally recited on October 29, 2014 at Bar L’imposture in Lille, France)

Mostly Germany Tour Update 2013 (week 2)

UntitledAfter Regensburg we had a great show in Munich at Sudstadt. It was kind of like a homecoming for us because we played there last year with Jenny Lund and this time it was just Jan solo from Jenny Lund. We said goodbye to Bavaria and it was off to Vienna. In Vienna we stayed with our old friend Steffko. UntitledWe went to a good Vietnamese food place but we passed on the crispy Darm.
UntitledWhat we didn’t pass on was the late night cheesy dog, which seems to be some kind of specialty in Vienna. Yummy! Ouch! UntitledThe next night was a show in Martigny, Switzerland. A beautiful mountain town where we reunited with a great band called Monoski. About 5 years a go we played a show with them in Brooklyn. It was great to play with them again after all these years.UntitledUntitledUntitledNext we were back in Komteri, Tobel. Kind of dreamland for us. We played a great show in the old prison and had a nice day walking around and looking at the beautiful countryside.UntitledUntitledThis is Kim the daughter of our friends Tom and Alice in Tobel.
UntitledUntitledNext stop Zurich! We played Bosch Bar again! And got to see our friends Caro and Ursina. Word on the street is that the door artwork was done by our pal Toby Goodshank!

UntitledTexas sized Croissont!Untitled The next show was our only show in France in a town called Strasbourg. They made this amazing poster.Untitled Everyone was so nice. It made us think that maybe we need to play more shows in France next time.UntitledThe next show was our return to Wetzlar at the Franzis. They have a nice big mirror in the back stage there so we could get pretty before the show!UntitledWhat’s not to love about German breakfast.UntitledAfter breakfast we took a nice long walk with our friend Sigmar and Samson the Wolf Hound of Wetzlar. Untitled The last 2 nights we played in Offenbach and Darmstadt with our friend Alex’s band Mine.
UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledThanks to everyone who keeps coming out to the shows. This week, after several years, we are back in Belgium for 3 shows as well as more shows in Western Germany!
