    11 Oct - gig with me and Dave Kerman

    In case anyone reading is in the vicinity of Basel Switzerland: On the 11th, I'll be doing a show with my old pal David Kerman. Includes some kind of art installation about which I have no idea, we'll each do a solo set, then massacre a few tunes together, even a 5UUs number! It HAS to be entertaining! It's this Friday October 11, 7pm: Beer & Wine (free) during DK's art installation. Concert starts at 8pm. The VIA - Amerbachstrasse 55a, Basel.

    I'm interested.

    But also in America.

    Do report how it goes.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Only ONE 5UUs tune??? So many classic to choose from. I wonder which it will be...

    Kick ass and take no prisoners, Bob. Say hi to Kerms for me and B.Sue, eh?
    And the code is a play, a play is a song, a song is a film, a film is a dance...

    Well Bob, this seems just too damn good not to capture some sort of evidence of! Please considering sticking up a camera or pressing record on a stereo mic of some sort!!

    I don't mind recording when that's the plan from the start, but I like to consider a live show as a one-off event WITH the audience who are there. Seeing or hearing a poor recording, completely disembodied from the moment, doesn't give a good impression of what it was really like. Knowing a show is being recorded makes it less likely to be carefree, knowing it's only NOW that matters. So no I won't 😀

    sorry I can't edit my last post - I meant to say that knowing a show is being recorded makes me slightly aware of trying to be 'good' for the recording, rather than letting it all be only for that moment, know what I mean?

    If I notice someone recording a video during a gig, of course that's fine, it happens.I don't discourage people from doing it, I'm just not interested in preserving a show myself, unless that was the plan from the start, then a show can be tailored for it, song selection, sound, ighting, etc.

    Not offended in the least, you'd have to try a LOT harder I just explained why I don't like recording gigs myself,

    Not bad! Halfway through our duo set though, I got a nasty "guitarist cramp" in the left hand and had to stop, so Dave did the last ten minutes or so by himself, taking requests which was quite entertaining!
