JBC 20th Anniversary Tour Travelogue - Day 8
June 15, 2002
- read Brian's full tour report here

Woke up and hit the road, sans Crouchy, who returns to London, and made the trek for Bielefeld. A four hour drive stretched waaaaay long by construction on the autobahn. We arrived with just enough time to set up & soundcheck before the club opened its doors. The sound was excellent, and though the crowd was small, they were impossibly enthusiastic, demanding no less than three encores.

After the show we went to an Irish pub, where a horrible British cover band was playing. It occurred to me that I was in Germany, listening to a British Band in an Irish pub doing covers of 'Boston'. It was like the UN...if Butros Butros Ghali played piss poor Jimmy Page licks. But, we had spinich pizza, which was niiiiiice.

Tomorrow we must leave early for Belgium...probably a six hour drive. But Tomorrow & Tuesday's shows are both in Belgium, so we will have a few days without hectic schedules and lengthy bus rides.

Thanks for playing Bielefeld
Thanks fpr a nice saturday evening. I was surprised and excited when I read that the Conspiracy will play my hometown.

We were early - too early as the Conspiracy was late. Met Pat and Max at the bar and was impressed that Pat remembered every single gig in our neck of the woods even gigs like

Landesbergen beginning of the 90s with a record store gig before that at Shitty Records in Minden

( Pat actually it was Neckermanns Musikwelt but Shitty Records suits better )

It was a shame that there were only about 30 people in the Elfenbein but that doesnt stopped the guys to play 3 encores . It was a 105 min gig

and I think everyone of the 30 people showing up enjoyed it a lot .

Thanks for coming
It was about ten years ago that we had our last opportunity to visit a JBC concert. Therfor we drove the long way down from Wuppertal to Bielefeld to spend our Saturday night together with these "old idiots".

And we really enjoyed ourselves...

The band played a nice set of old songs (my favourite one was "Sister Death") and two songs from the new album ("Niagra" and "I hate love").

Although the audience was not as crowded as expected it seems that even the band had some kind of fun.

We hope you will come back soon...

Meanwhile we pay attention to the world cup final.

Everyone should keep in mind that football is a game where 22 people are running around and at the end Germany is winning...
