Great joy as we reach Germany and have our first proper hot
meal since leaving Northampton. Our soundcheck in the Logo is
long, but Curt is acting like a trouper.
stops by and
declares himself in favour of this diminiutive Scots-Nigerian
skinhead. The Butcher succeeds in getting the bus lost in
Hamburg (no, I mean, come ON...) and Kathie manages to get
arrested for running a red light on the way to the show.
Somehow she charms her way out of trouble and we get to begin
the set with
Caroline Wheeler's Birthday Present
and a brace of
truly spectacular timing mistakes. The show is at times wildly
inaccurate, but high on action and good vibrations; we end up
playing two encores to the home crowd, and retire for a
delicious dinner with Jones, our German guide, Uli, and a lady
from Sony, who doesn't seem to understand that we're usually a
tad tighter than that. She thinks we're really professional - we
think we got away with murder! Several drinks later, I leave my
beret in a bar and retire to bed.
