27/09/02 ASTA STUDENTENCLUB MENSA, GREIFSWALD (D)
is already finished!
After a long journey through Sweden and Denmark, we managed
ourselves in the middle of Rostock chaos; we couldn't find
the right road but finally arrived to Greifswald. Lucky
enough we pumped to Krishna (hostess of the evening) and
she showed the venue to play at. We set up our gear and
waited the Gorilla Monsoon guys whom also got lost trying
to find the place! Both bands performed well and right from
the beginning we got along together very well. We ended
up heavy drinking and partying until early morning and Juha
made a name for himself by hugging the toilet, so he was
crowned as our “main toiletman”.
28/09/02 CLUB ALGE, OSCHERSLEBEN (D)
The place was a HC kind of club, crazy punk rockers
around. Both Mika's experimented some dog's scheisse
in the back alley and that was something to remember.
Little bit partying after the gig (only till 4 o'clock)
because we had to get up early to continue the tour.
After spending almost 800 km's on autobahn, next stop
was in Gent, Belgium.
the road to nowhere.
fan from Oschersleben.
29/09/02 FRONTLINE, GENT (B)
We met the dudes from Plague Of Gentlemen and
actually 90% of the crowd bought our promotion
CD. Frontline was cool place to play and Gent
was nice city to hang out; narrow streets, huge
record stores plus weird nightclubs everywhere.
Next day was day-off so we spent the time sightseeing
and then started our journey back to Germany
where we had some good time at Fjep's place
Fjep's place in Leipzig.
01/10/02 UNBEATERBAR, SCHWARTZENBERG (D)
Greatest aftershow party ever!
Town was surrounded by fucking mountains
and our fucking van was having hard time
with that. Fucking crazy motherfucking
gig and fucking GREAT aftershow party;
Herrmann from Monsoon ripped his trousers
into pieces… lots of beer and amazing
music just for us! Funniest thing was
a local hippie who talked only to flowers
and the way how that guy moved on the
dance floor with hands held high was out
of this planet!
the german is burstin' out!
and human leather!
02/10/02 ORLA-TRIAL, NEUSTADT (D)
The Northmen and the Monkey Boys met
the Weed Brothers
One of the best sets on this tour.
Weed In The Head was 3rd on the
bill and what a nice bunch of guys.
Place was well crowded and again
we couldn't help ourselves from
partying. Completely drunk and high,
Juha and Mika P. together with Herrm
and Norm from Gorilla played a terrible
jam session at 2 a.m. Sometime during
the night, our cars outside the
club got attacked by some local
nazi punks, fuck 'em!

03/10/02 AZ DORSTROTTEL EV, ZSCHOPAU
After Neustadt we spent the
next night and day relaxing
at W.I.T.H.'s drummer's place.
So, Thomas was our host and
his home looked like stoner-heaven;
he showed us his John Garcia's
autograph and that will describe
everything! The place we played
was booked at last minute
but some people showed up
and it was alright. Norman
from Monsoon took the stage
by his underpants and boots.
Stage was also decorated by
women's bras (gift from the
last gig) and Herrmann's trouser
(W.I.T.H.) ..staring contest
04/10/02 NOISEPOINT IV FESTIVAL,
Easily best gig on the
whole tour… Khale and
Rodeo Queen were also
with us on the bill.
All we could remember
was that on stage it
was terribly hot! Lots
of people jammed with
us and also some friends
came to see the show.
Everybody was in the
mood for a big party
…Mika H. realised that
black haired chicks
are too hot to handle
…to break some kind
of record (?) we put
like 20 people in a
tiny room and went totally
blackout with pot and
(Morbid Records) and
disturb their spirited
