WOVEN HAND – Live in Amiens (Maison De La Culture D’Amiens – Petit Theatre)

The audience in Sotteville-lès-Rouen was very different: There were young teenagers, some typically Theatre visitors and I saw one woman before the show as she was knitting a pullover! Anyway – the location was really very beautiful: A modern theatre with seats. So it was my very first seated Woven Hand experience. We find our stools in the seventh row in the middle. A perfect place, because so we had a wonderful overview of the stage. When the lights went out, Woven Hand entered the stage. David said “Hello” with a small gesture and then they started to play. After the tape intro of “Snake Bite” the show started with ”My Russia”. After some improvisations (“Down in yon Forest”) a powerful “Tin Finger” filled the theatre. David stood up again for a few seconds at the end of the song and after the last note was played, the teenagers shouted out and cheered very loudly! For a few moments I thought that they were at the wrong show, because Woven Hand is definitely NOT a boygroup 😉

Anyway – it was really great fun to see and hear these girls crying. “Harm’s Way” was perfect as at the last two shows and then “Wooden Brother” was played instead of “Aeolian Harp (Under the World)”. What a big and beautiful surprise! Then Ordy worked on his drums for “The Speaking Hands” as always – powerful and very impressive! When David fetched the Banjola for “Whistling Girl” some people cheered loudly. More vocal improvisations before the magical “White Bird” were to come. After that, “Slota Prow” with some lines of “Horse Head Fiddle” followed. And the fantastic “Your Russia” with some more improvisations in the middle finished the first part. Needless to say that the teenagers cried and cheered again with full force during the encore break. David returned alone to play the beautiful “Swedish Purse/Phyllis Ann” – and the people began to clap rhythmically. Then Ordy, Peter and Pascal also returned and “Winter Shaker” shaked the theatre. By starting “American Wheeze” people went crazy and cheered again. “Deerskin Doll” and the amazing “Dirty Blue” were the last songs of the night.

The Setlist:
Snake Bite
My Russia
Improvisations (Down in yon Forest)
Tin Finger
Harm’s Way
Wooden Brother

WOVEN HAND – Bern (ISC)

After the Vienna show, which was – apart form the “audience” – really an excellent one, I headed to my final “Ten Stones” live experience to Bern in Switzerland. I arrived the day before the show so I had enough time for some sightseeing. Bern is a beautiful city – especially the older part of the town is amazing.

Before I started my sightseeing tour I looked for the location “ISC Club” which was not really easy to find. It’s hidden behind an autonomous area which is called “Reitschule”, the club itself is located in an university building. I saw only one Woven Hand poster by going through the city for some hours, so I was curious how many people will find their way to the show. As David played here for many times (with 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand) I was sure, that the concert will be well attended.

As the doors were opened at 8 o’clock I was waiting 15 minutes before outside of the venue with some other fans. When I entered the location I headed the stairs above to the so called concert room. But this was really very small but at the right hand there was a curtain and so I thought to myself “behind this, there will be the hall”. So I lifted the curtain a little bit and saw directly behind it the “stage”. A very tiny one which was only knee-high! So I fetched myself a beer and waited for the support act Birch Book again. As I heard about the last concerts, B’ee aka B’eirth played the last shows (Utrecht and Leuven) with Ordy on the drums! So I was very looking forward to see this and as the curtain was opened he was sitting behind the drums, gave me a little wave and then Birch Book (with one guitar player) started his wonderful set. It was magic again and luckily the audience was very quiet during the show so this was really an amazing performance. Especially the final song (“The Trip goes on”), in which Ordy played a little bit louder, was simply unbelievable! Then the curtain was closed again and the club get more and more crowded. I had my place in front of Pascal this time and so me and a lot of fans were waiting for Woven Hand approximately 15 minutes. During this time a girl asked me if I have seen Woven Hand live before. So I have to laugh a little bit and so I told her my live experiences. She was very curious and nervous, because it was her first Woven Hand show. I said: “Just wait and see – you won’t trust your eyes and ears, bu you can trust me.” Then a drowning filled the room and the curtains fell for Woven Hand – the band was already on stage and so they started directly with “Kicking Bird”. As the last note was played, the people cheered and applauded very loudly – so they loved the hard and heavy performance like me. “The Beautiful Axe” was next, followed by “The Speaking Hands”, which was a personal highlight again. This one caught everybody and after the song the people went really nuts. Then the first riffs of “Splinters” gave me the creeps again. After that David had some technical problems with his amplifier. So it was the first time for me hearing him saying the F-Word. After two or three minutes he handled the problem and it seemed that he worked off some anger in an unbelievable hard and heavy version of “Tin Finger”. Some vocal improvisations on “Into the Piano” followed before the big surprise came next: “Poormouth”! I really didn’t trust my ears – one of my personal 16 Horsepower favorite was played live! With wet eyes I enjoyed this wonderful song. So it was no surprise that the audience went crazy again after the song was finished. While the people cheered loudly, Ordy, Pascal and Peter left the stage and David gave an amazing solo performance of “Whistling Girl”. After that the boys returned to their instruments for “Cohawkin Road” and “Horsetail”. Again David made a lot of gestures during the songs and after that he fetched his banjola again. While tuning it, somebody shouted “Sinnerman”. David’s answer: “I don’t know this song.” Nearly everybody laughed and then “Kingdom of Ice” hit the audience with full force. Another heavy version of “Not one Stone” followed and it was such an enjoyment to see the band playing this gorgeous song live again. “Horse Head Fiddle” with a lot of improvisations took us the breath away – it’s simply unbelievable which sounds they created again. And with a rocking “Winter Shaker” the regular set was closed. Some Indian chants supplied the encore break before Ordy and David played the Bob Dylan Cover “As I went out one Morning”. After this beauty David fetched the bandoneon and you can imagine what happened next: The people went nuts again and a lot of them sang some lines to the unbelievable “American Wheeze”. And with “Deerskin Doll” a heavy final chord was set. Unfortunately they didn’t play “Dirty Blue” and “Your Russia” but therefore “Poormouth” was much more than a consolation.

After the show I asked the girl next to me, who has her first Woven Hand live experience, what she was thinking now. She shaked her head and answered luckily and with a big smile. “Unbelievable”! Then I met Hanspeter from Bern and Millie from France. It was quite fun again to meet people in real life, who I only knew from the internet. I was standing on the stairs watching the scenery, as the guitar player from Birch Book asked: “And did you enjoy the show?” As I had my Birch Book shirt on I do bet he was curious about my opinion. So we talked for approximately 15 minutes about Birch Book, his musical background and the touring so far. Finally Dean (he is from Manchester) signed some Birch Book covers for me and before he had to leave Hanspeter was so nice and shot a picture of me and Dean – many thanks again!

Then I met Ordy and Peter for a short “Hello” and after that I left the club. As I headed to the hotel I passed the tour bus where some people loaded all the instruments and gear. As Dean told me they left tonight and drive through the night to Lausanne, where the next stop was scheduled. But no more shows for me – five times is enough! And I’ve also to spare some money for the next tour in 2009 – see you there again!”

12/12/2008:
MURDER BY DEATH – Vienna (B72)

My first Murder By Death live experience was on the 21st April 2007 in Munich (Atomic Café) and this show was simply awesome. Due to the wedding of my best friend in France (I was one of the witnesses of the marriage) I couldn’t make it to the first Murder By Death concert in Austria, which was scheduled for the 2nd July 2008 in Vienna. So I have to wait until the 12th December 2008 when Adam Turla (Guitar and Vocals), Sarah Balliet (Cello and Keyboards), Matt Armstrong (Bass) and Dagan Thogerson (Drums) were playing in Vienna again – this time at the wonderful small location named B72. There I attended one of my best live shows ever – Woven Hand back in 2005 played an outstanding set and so I was really very looking forward to see a concert of one of my all time favorite bands in this wonderful place again. This time Murder By Death toured to promote their latest and fantastic release “Red Of Tooth And Claw”, which has blown me straight away when I first listened to it – a real masterpiece!

Before the show I met Dagan at the merchandising stand. We talked a little bit and then I bought two new shirts and a badge. Also I asked him for signing some covers after the concert. “Yes, of course”, he answered. As the doors opened we headed to the balcony. When you’re sitting in the first row you have a perfect overview and an excellent sound. The supporting band was also from the USA – Unwed Sailor, a three piece (Bass, Guitar and Drums) which only plays instrumental. Very interesting performance, but in my opinion some vocals would be fit perfectly into this special sound. Nevertheless we (and Adam Turla with Matt Armstrong from Murder By Death, who were standing on the left to us) enjoyed their performance, which endured approximately 40 minutes. Then, after they grabbed their instruments, Murder By Death entered the stage. “Thanks for coming out, we’re Murder By Death”, Adam welcomed the audience and they began their show with a straight “Sometimes the Line walks you” from the album “In Bocca Al Lupo”. After that, Sarah fetched her cello and the wonderful “’52 Ford” followed. This one is one of my favorite tracks on the recent album “Red Of Tooth And Claw” so it was no surprise that this one gave me the creeps. The new song “Ball and Chain” was next on the setlist, in which Sarah showed us her unique cello skills. After Adam said “Thank you very much”, the powerful “Rum Brave” filled the B72. The amazing “A Masters in Reverse Psychology” from their second LP “Who Will Survive, And What Will Be Left Of Them” hit me with full force. “We are all waiting for the end, what kind of finish will he send” were the last words. Then I have to shout “Amazing” and Adam answered “Amazing finish, I hope” with a smile. “It’s nice to be back here in Vienna, thank you for having us! We were here in July, I guess. It was the 2nd of July, the day before my birthday. Which was a good one. I had Schnitzel on my birthday so everything was okay. This song is about escaping a rough town”, Adam introduced “Steal away”, which you can find also on their last album. “Fuego”, the first song which I heard before the official release of “Red Of Tooth And Claw”, was next, in which Sarah played cello and keyboard alternately. “Thanks a lot! We are doing a series where we put out our own records and we are doing covers of our favorite bands and our friends and they’re covering our songs – so we are trading. And this is a song by a guy named William Elliott Whitmore who’s amazing”, Adam told us before they began “One Man’s Shame” which is released as a limited edition (1.000 copies) on a special vinyl single series. If you want to save your personal copy then go to their official website (www.murderbydeath.com) and place your order before it’s too late! Well, back to the Vienna show: “Ash” gave me another reason for headbanging and shaking. With “One more Notch”, “The Organ Grinder” and “Steam Rising” three more beautiful tracks from “In Bocca Al Lupo” followed. “Thank you very much! It’s good to back in Austria. You’re very kind, come to see us and make us feel good. This song is about having a good time by doing all the wrong shit, I guess”, Adam told us before “Brother” hit everybody at the B72 and so it was no surprise that the people went completely nuts during this song. And I was so happy to hear the full version, because of the last time in Munich a crazy guy interrupted Adam’s singing by entering the stage for some stagediving. “Until Morale improves, the Beatings will continue” from their second album gave us the creeps again. When I first heard the line “Buckshot is my Bread and I’ll drink Whiskey instead of Water, ‘cause I can’t stand to be sober in this place”, I was caught immediately. “Thank you very much, you’re very awesome. I hope you were here early enough to see Unwed Sailor. Those guys are fucking awesome. They’re friends of ours from the states. And it just happened that we were meeting here in Europe. And this one goes out to them”, Adam told us before he started an unbelievable version of “The Big Sleep”. After that, the crowd went nuts again and applauded loudly. “Tomorrow is our last night of the tour. It’s always nice to go home, but we will be sad for leaving Europe. Thanks for taking good care of us”, Adam introduced the last song of the regular set: “Comin’ Home”, in which nearly everybody was singing the beginning with Adam. Then a short encore break followed. “Usually we go somewhere and have a few drinks. And if you wanna hear more, we will play more songs. But there is no place for us to go”, Adam explained about the small stage at the B72. So they had to stay on the stage, because there is no place for an usual backstage area. So the crowd cheered, shouted and applauded loudly for more songs. “I like your style, I like you guys. I don’t know what songs we are gonna play”, Adam told us and so some people shouted some titles. “Okay, here are a couple of ones we haven’t played on this tour yet”, Adam introduced us the following songs. Before they started to play again, Adam asked about this special thing, which was outside the bar hanging above the barkeepers. It holds all types of liquor bottles upside down and so the bartenders can easily fetch some Whiskey, Vodka etc. for mixing some drinks. “By the way, has anybody else noticed that there is a revolving thing of liquor? I wanna lay down underneath it. The thing is beautiful. I gotta get rich and get one of those for my house above my bed. And I will never have to leave”, Adam was joking. Then a wonderful “Three Men Hanging” opened the encore set. “I heard someone asked for this song, so we will play it”, introduced “The Desert is on Fire”, which finished with a big surprise: Adam played the classic guitar riff of the Jethro Tull song “Aqualung” just before the end. “Okay, let’s do one more. This song is about pirates and getting drunk. You’re awesome. You know, this song is about Viennese pirates” Adam joked again and then a heavy and powerful “Dead Men and Sinners” closed the wonderful set. “Thank you very much, thanks for coming”, said Adam as a good bye before leaving the stage finally.

After the concert I firstly met Matt and asked him for signing some covers. “Of course”, he said. As I was wearing the official shirt of “Red Of Tooth And Claw”, which was available by pre-ordering the album, he knew that I’m a big fan, I guess. And so he gave me his plectrum as a gift – many thanks again! Then I met Sarah and she also signed all my vinyl covers which I brought along. Then I waited until Adam has some time for me and so I walked to the merchandising stand again and asked him for some signatures. So he signed everything and after that I thanked him for playing some notes of “Aqualung”. “Oh, you recognised it”, he answered. “Oh yeah, of course”, and then I lifted my Murder By Death shirt to show him not my belly, but my Jethro Tull Baseball shirt, which I wore beneath it. He looked with bright eyes, smiled and shook his head astonished. Finally I bought some pins and the official and limited tour poster and wished him and the band a save trip back to the USA. Before we were leaving we had the chance to take a picture with Sarah and Dagan. So many thanks to my friend Kurt who took one featuring Sarah Balliet, Dagan Thogerson and me.

WOVEN HAND – Kortrijk (Stadsschouwburg)

As we arrived in Kortrijk we were very curioius about the fact, that Woven Hand will play the so called „Next Festival“. We hit the city approximately at 6 o’clock and then we were looking for the location called Stadsschouwburg, which is a beautiful building. In a café beside we drank some beers and by reading some flyers there we finally recognised, that the “Next Festival” is an international arts festival which was running from 21st November until 13th December 2008.

As we entered the building at 9 o’clock we were heading to the hall, which is a modern and beautiful theatre with seats. So we found us in the first row in front of David and we were impatiently waiting for our very first “Ten Stones” live experience.

The light went out at 10 o’clock and David (with his bandana again) entered with Ordy the stage to open the show with the Bob Dylan cover “As I went out one Morning” which featured some vocal improvisations. Then the first song of the new record was played – a powerful “Kicking Bird” hit me with full force – Ordy’s heavy drumming, the drowning in the background and Pascal’s bass playing kicked ass. And David rocked like always and shaked his head and feet wildly! After that it was obvious that this place is perfect – the sound was crystal clear and the seats very comfortable. Unfortunately the stage was a little bit far away and the light was very dark, so you have to need some flashlight to take good pictures. “The Beautiful Axe” followed – a new song, which was already played at the last tour in summer. Very powerful, impressive and intense again! After that, David said “Thank you”, made some vocal improvisations before Ordy played the first notes of “The Speaking Hands”. As you all already know, this is live still a real killer and rocks like a beast. And not only me was headbanging – a lot of others banged and so some people might thought, that this is a Heavy Metal concert. “Just like the lightening from out of the sky, all men will see Him, and all men will cry” was the vocal improvisations in the song, before the last two minutes with full power filled the theatre. What a performance, I was thinking after this song. Then a very big surprise came next: Another vocal improvisations lead into “Splinters” from the fantastic 16 Horsepower album “Secret South”. When they played this one, pictures from the amazing black and white video came into my mind. This one gave me the creeps again. Then David showed us some vocal improvisations and Ordy played his typically intro for “Tin Finger” which David followed by knocking rhythmically on his guitar. Also known as a wild live song it was very heavy performed and so it was time for more headbanging. David played with full force and so it was no surprise that one string broke during his performance. The roadie came to fetch his guitar and David grabbed the microphone with both hands and shouted “The love of Him is law” into the hall. The crowd went nuts and cheered loudly after this wonderful song. The amazing “Whistling Girl” followed and during this song Peter was putting a new string on David’s guitar and also played some riffs on it. Suddenly the sound engineer came to me and said: “Please don’t use flashlight when you take pictures”. “Oh, okay, I answered” and he patted on my shoulder and headed back to his mixing console. “Thanks for coming on such a nasty evening” (the weather was really not fine – it was cold and still snowing outside), David said while fetching his guitar. “That’s a new string, that’s gonna be trouble”, David joked while tuning his guitar. Then a loud twang sounded and David said “See what I mean”. The crowd laughed and “Dirty Blue” followed. With “Cohawkin Road” another new song was on the setlist. Especially the line “Yet in the mirror of the knife, I see only me” gives me the creeps at any time I hear it. The next surprise followed with some lines of “Consecration” in which David showed us again, that his voice is getting better and better. Peter lead then into the amazing “Horsetail”. When David sang “by the wave of the horsetail” he moved his left arm like a swinging horsetail. And by singing “there is number to your hours” twice he raised his left arm again and looked first on his watch and then to the crowd. And when David sang “You cannot reach Him, no not from your tallest spire” at the end of the song, he laid back and made circles with his right hand above his head by repeating the word “spire” over and over again. The live performance of “Kingdom of Ice” was not really new to us, because we heard this one also at the last summer tour. But the vocal improvisations before the begin was amazing again in which David hid some parts of his face with his right hand. After that, some other vocal improvisations and drownings lead into my personal favorite of “Ten Stones”. David turned to Ordy and then they started “Not one Stone”. Very powerful and Ordy’s unbelievable drumming gave me the creeps over and over again. Drowning, vocal improvisations and atmospheric sounding was the begin of the 16 Horsepower song “Horse Head Fiddle”, in which Peter, Pascal, Ordy and David created an unique atmosphere. With the next song the regular set was finished: After more vocal improvisations Ordy opened in his typical style the wonderful “Winter Shaker”. After the line “it is the storm that brought me in” the band created a real thunderstorm sound on their instruments. “Thank you very much” from David, some waves from Pascal, Peter and Ordy and so the band left the stage. During the encore break some Indian chants were played from a tape. After returning on the stage “Deerskin Doll” was next. Especially the last two minutes were amazing heavy played. And as David stood up to fetch his bandoneon the crowd cheered loudly. And with the first notes of “American Wheeze” everybody was shouting and crying. The atmosphere was just unbelievable during this song. A “Thank you very much” followed again and it seemed, that the show was over. But the crowd continued to cheer and applaud. I was seeing Ordy watching behind the curtain beside the stage and then Woven Hand returned once more. David was joking with Ordy and made some grimaces: He held his hands under his eyes and winked with his fingers to Ordy. Then the roadie plugged David’s guitar and the band gave us an intense and heavy finish with “Your Russia”. Everybody went nuts during this song and also Pascal was completely in the music and suddenly he was kneeling next to David for a few seconds. “Just like the lightening from out of the sky, all men will see Him, and all men will cry” was sang during a break again and then the band rocked with full force until the end. “Thank you VERY much, VERY much” were the last words from David before the band disappeared finally.

After the concert we were waiting outside the theatre and so I met Bert from Belgium again. The last time we saw each other was in Bonn at the Harmonie in October 2005. Approximately 30 minutes later we entered the hall again to meet the band. David was signing some covers and talked to some fans, while we said “Hello” to Peter, Ordy and Pascal and thanked for this wonderful show. We left by saying “See you tomorrow in Paris again”.

This concert was simply amazing. The sound crystal clear, the band in an excellent mood and the crowd was really awesome! So it was really perfect! And if you have got the chance to see a concert in this beautiful theatre – please do it! Especially the acoustic is outstanding.

WOVEN HAND – Paris (La Maroquinerie)

So after the Kortrijk show our next concert was in Paris at the location called “La Maroquinerie” which is in the Rue Boyer. When we arrived it was great to meet Tony and Magali again. Although it was the first time to say “Hello” to Marie and Philippe – I only knew them via the internet so far. We had some time and so we went into the restaurant of the club. A very nice place and it was obvious that you get real excellent food here. The band was also there and they were enjoying their meal – there was a special “Woven Hand Menu” on the black board which featured the following: “Cabecou tori au miel et sa petite salade” and some “Pavé de rumsteack Poelé” and finally “Crème de Champignons epinard et pennes” – all French speakers will now get very hungry, I guess!

As we knew that it’s necessary to be one of the first to queue to get a place directly in front of the stage, we didn’t stay too long in the restaurant and began to wait outside until the doors opened. As we were waiting for the entrance the queue was getting longer and longer – no real surprise, because the concert was already sold out a few days before! Then suddenly the road manager came to me and told me the following “Please no flashlights tonight”. So he remembered me when I took pictures in Kortrijk the day before. “Yes, Sir!”, I answered. When the doors opened we were going down a stair and then on the right side there was another room which is the hall for the concerts. It’s a typical Punk-Rock location – very intimate and not really high. Also the stage is not really a big one. So we found us in the first row again, this time I was standing on the right side – in front of Peter. More and more people found their way into the hall and then the support band The Cave Singers began. A three piece from the USA played a wonderful set of eight songs (“Ramble”, “Seeds of Night”, “Helen”, In a House”, “New Drum”, “I don’t mind”, “Oh Child” and “Dancing on our Graves” – as stated on the setlist which I get after the show). Unfortunately I couldn’t buy their CD after the concert because they were sold out! So in the meantime I got my copy (thanks to Tony!) which is called “Invitation Songs”. A great album which is worth to check it out!

Well, after The Cave Singers grab their things together the club was full crowded. The air was not really good anymore and I thought to myself, that this is gonna be a very hot and exhausting night. Then the lights went out again and Woven Hand entered the small stage of La Maroquinerie. A nice drowning opens “Kicking Bird” again and like the show before in Kortrijk it kicked ass. Also it was obvious that the light was very dark again. So if you were not at least in the first rows you had no chance to take good pictures without flashlight. Luckily I had an excellent position to take at least some good shots. This night, Woven Hand sounded more heavy – so the location was perfect again. After the first song of the show the crowd cheered and applauded loudly and Ordy, who was not sitting directly behind David as usual, said to the crowd: “No flash”, because some people in the back took pictures by using the flashlight. “The Beautiful Axe” followed in which David shook his feet wildly again. And during this song the light was sometimes like it has to be – more brighter, so you could really see the faces of the band. But this was only for a few seconds and then it was dark and blue again. So you had to be very concentrated on the light changing, when you wanted to take good pictures. “Merci beaucoup” from David lead into some vocal improvisations (“She is turning into gold”) before “The Speaking Hands” rocked the hall intensively. During this one David repeated his vocal improvisations again after the first break. More vocal improvisations which some lines from “Slota Prow” provided an atmospheric feelings before the crowd cheered loudly again when David played the first riffs of “Splinters”. This night it was more heavy than the day before. Especially when David started at the end of the song with “Who is it now that loves you” the song exploded in some way. Then they rocked the La Maroquinerie again with an awesome heavy and loud version of “Tin Finger”. After “Here on this road, there are other who move so slow” the band created a musical thunderstorm – just unbelievable! David rocked with full force on his stool and shook his head and feet. Then David fetched his Banjola for a wonderful “Whistling Girl”. “Just like the lightening from out of the sky, all men will see Him and all men will cry” was the next vocal improvisation before the light turned into a dark blue for an amazing “Dirty Blue”. Then David sang more improvisations including the wonderful “Consecration”. By the way: If you don’t know this song then please check the 2-CD-Set “Awake, My Soul – Help Me To Sing” (it’s a soundtrack from a documentary about the Sacred Harp) – there you can find the studio version of this gem. So back to the show in Paris again: After that, “Cohawkin Road” filled La Maroquinerie in an atmospheric and beautiful way. During the song the road manager came to us (there were some photographers beside me) and told us that we have to stop taking pictures. Although nobody used flashlights we all stopped and packed our cameras. “Horsetail” was next – like the day before in Kortrijk, David supplied his lyrics with some gestures again. “Kingdom of Ice” followed, in which Peter created wonderful sound atmospheres on his guitar and Pascal joined with some great heavy riffs. “Merci”, David said after that before Ordy counted loudly “Three, Four” for “Not one Stone”. Wonderful again and once more a reminder for anybody, that Ordy Garrison is an unbelievable drummer. Especially at the end of the song when David sang “Behold the lamb, given for us”, he played with full power. “Merci, merci beaucoup” from David before some drownings, more vocal improvisations (some lines from “Swedish Purse”) and other sound collages created a new “Horse Head Fiddle”. After that, the crowd was absolutely quiet for a few seconds. It seems that they were completely caught by this amazing version. A heavy “Winter Shaker” gave us the creeps again and finished the first set. “Merci beaucoup, thank you very much” from David before Woven Hand left the stage and some Indian chants from the tape supplied the encore break. The crowd cheered, yelled and applauded loudly until David and Ordy came back for the Bob Dylan cover “As I went out one Morning”. Beautiful again and when David get his hands on the bandoneon, the crowd applauded and cheered loudly. Nearly everybody knew that another 16 Horsepower classic will follow, and with the first notes of the fantastic “American Wheeze” the people went nuts. Before the second verse, David cried loudly and the atmosphere was completely electrified. With the line “And if I die by your hand, I’ve gotta home in glory land”, which a lot of people sang with David, another musical thunderstorm was perfect and nearly everybody was shaking and headbanging in some way. Some drownings and vocal improvisations lead into the last song of the show: An unbelievable powerful “Your Russia” gave us the creeps again and like yesterday in Kortrijk Pascal was kneeling again for some seconds beside David for a few seconds. It was obvious that he was enjoying every minute to play in his native country. “Raise your hand, she is turning into gold” sang David as some improvisations after the first break before they rocked with full force again to create an unbelievable finish of “Your Russia”. “Thank you very much, thank you very much” were the last words from David before the band disappeared from the stage.

We were completely impressed by this amazing and heavy performance. As I was wet from the sweat I changed my shirt and then we went back to the restaurant to get some beers and food. Before leaving we said “Hello” to Ordy and Peter. So the next stop for us and the band was Salzburg in Austria. As they had a day off before I was really curious, if this will change something in the performance, because Paris was the sixth show in a row. So I did think that they were happy to have a free day and save some strength for the Austrian shows in Salzburg and Vienna.

WOVEN HAND – Salzburg (Rockhouse)

After our return from Paris on the 24th November we had some time to rest before we were driving to Salzburg for the next “Ten Stones” live experience. This time a different support act was opening for Woven Hand: Birch Book, a project from a musician named Bobin Eirth (you can call him B’eirth or B’ee), who is also the front man of his other band In Gowan Ring. David is a big fan of this group for years, I guess, and so I was very curious about to see this man live on stage for the first time. But to be honest: My first thoughts were, that this could be a little bit boring, because his music is a very light and gentle form of Folk. So I really didn’t expected too much.

By fetching my card for the show I asked how many tickets were sold in advance. The answer was a little bit surprising for me, because 120 are not that much in my opinion. Anyway – I thought, that a lot of people will buy their tickets just before the show, and this was the case, because the hall called “Rockhouse” was nearly full before Woven Hand started. I must admit that this concert was really special for me, because it was the first time that I attended a rock show with one of my nephews, who has begun to study in Salzburg. And I was very curious about his comments after the concert.

Before the show we sat in the “Rockhouse Bar” and drank some beers. There I met Ulli from Nuremberg again. Then one of us went into the hall to see Birch Book, which was at that night a three piece: B’eirth sang and played guitar and harmonica, one guitar player and one on the Bodhrán. So the rest of us finished our beers and followed to see this band.

Birch Book - Salzburg (Rockhouse) (25.11.2008) Setlist © Alex MelomaneWhat can I say? It was simply magic! This voice is an unbelievable beauty and this sweet and soft arrangements were amazing! Especially the last song of the setlist caught me completely. After Birch Book finished their set, I asked the guitar player about the name of this tune. So he gave me his setlist and said to me: “The Trip goes on”. Then I rushed to the merchandising and bought me one CD with this beauty on it and a shirt. Now I became a fan of Birch Book!

An announcement was hanging next to the hall entry saying, that taking picture is only allowed during the first three songs. And without flashlights again, of course. So I headed to the front row again just in front of David. The lights went out and Woven Hand entered the stage of the “Rockhouse” in Salzburg. “Kicking Bird” improved what I thought about this concert: The day off before was very good for the band and so they sounded wonderful fresh and heavy! And it was obvious that they enjoyed their playing from the beginning until the end. As I was only taken pictures during the first three songs, I am not exactly sure about the setlist anymore. But for 98 % I would say, that it was the same as in Kortrijk. And the performance was also on an unbelievable level: Hard, heavy and fresh too! In my opinion it was a little bit better than in Kortrijk, because of the more rocking sounding. David was completely in the music and shaked his body especially during the louder songs (“Kicking Bird”, “The Speaking Hands” and “Tin Finger”). When they played an awesome hard version of “Winter Shaker”, one string broke on David’s guitar. Another proof for his wild and heavy performance on this night. And if I’m not completely wrong, the encore was “As I went out one Morning”, “Deerskin Doll”, “American Wheeze” and “Your Russia”. I’m not quite sure about “Deerskin Doll”, but I do think they played it.

As I said before, this show was really awesome and one of the best Woven Hand experience, I’ve seen so far. Heavy, rocking and very fresh sounding – so it was perfect for my nephew to get full into Woven Hand. After the concert he only said one word with shining eyes: “Amazing!”. Woven Hand headed for the next show directly to Prague and we had one day off before we were going to see them again in Vienna at the WUK.

WOVEN HAND – Rome (Init)

On this day it was my very first Rome experience. Unfortunately we had not enough time to do a real sightseeing tour but nevertheless I was bewitched by this wonderful city. Especially the Colosseum left me speechless.

After that we went to the location called Init, where Woven Hand played. Just before the show we ate something at a very nice trattoria just around the corner. While we were waiting for our meals the band passed our table. Ordy tapped me on the shoulder and David said: „Hey fellas“ 😉

The Seven Seas Duet feat. Loukas Metaxas from Greece did the support that night. And they also played with Woven Hand together after that. Loukas Metaxas appears also on the Woven Hand release „Live at Roepaen“ – he did some percussion work on some songs.

WOVEN HAND – Vienna (WUK)

It was the first time that I attended a concert in the Vienna location named „WUK“. Woven Hand never played there before, but 16 Horsepower – they had their second appearance in Austrian here back in the year 2000 (17th March). Unfortunately I was not able to catch this show – a big mistake as I know now.

When the doors opened I was able to get the best place – but what did I see? A barrier was installed in front of the stage like they do this at big open air festivals or other big halls. “What the hell?”, I thought to myself, because the WUK is a small venue for approximately 500 people, I guess. And it’s Woven Hand, not Metallica or any other big name. Anyway – the positive thing about the barrier was, that I could hang up my bag and pullover.

This time I wanted to see the whole Birch Book show – and it was amazing again. This time B’ee played barefoot. The setlist was almost the same as in Salzburg, two days before, but nevertheless very impressive. The songs were: “Backwards”, “Zephyr through Willows”, “Diaspora”, “Empty Corner of the Page”, “How the Hours”, “Along Straggling”, “Mornings Waking”, “Young Souls”, “Wisps of the Wind” and finally once more “The Trip goes on”. And it was magical again – this voice and the arrangements – well, just beautiful! Apart from a very noisy and sometimes rude crowd, the show was brilliant. And I had my doubts if the people will be more quiet when Woven Hand will play.

“Kicking Bird” opened the show with full force. A perfect “The Beautiful Axe” was next before Ordy began with the intro of “The Speaking Hands” which David supplied with some vocal improvisations “Just like the lightening, from out of the sky, all men will see Him. And all men will cry”. Then the well known riffs followed and an amazing version gave me the creeps again. When David played the intro of “Splinters” the loud crowd became more noisy which was extremely annoying.

Some lines from “Slota Prow” lead into a heavy and loud version of the live killer “Tin Finger”. Especially during this performance I really loved the heavier and louder songs, because this was the only way not to hear the speaking audience. And especially Ordy showed the crowd, how powerful a drummer is able to play. So he and David fought a beautiful duel.

After that, suddenly Pascal, Ordy and Peter left the stage while David fetched his banjola for his solo performance of “Whistling Girl”. It was really amazing to hear this version again and David finished it with a smart “Thank you”.

“Cohawkin Road” followed but I really couldn’t enjoy this song, because of the stupid audience again. People were still talking during the songs – I never have seen such a rude and disrespect behaviour in front of a wonderful band like Woven Hand. After the song I shook my head unbelievingly again. “Horsetail” was next in which David gave us some gestures and vocal improvisations (“He is looking for gold”) again. Then something happened which changed the mood completely: After David was fetching his Banjola the hall lights went suddenly on! First, he didn’t care about and played the intro of “Kingdom of Ice” but as the lights were still on he stopped. Someone shouted “Amazing light show” and then the lights went out again and David began again to play on his banjola. During this song he pawed with his right feet on the stage while singing the line “In fierceness and rage, he paws at the ground” and then he sang “Lay hand to mouth, spoken twice and shut your mouth!” – after that David kicked his microphone (some little sound problems, I guess) with his right fist and sang “Shut your”. Shortly after that he looked on his ring (the one with a green stone) and checked if it’s broken. But it seemed that nothing serious happened. The light went darker and “Horse Head Fiddle” with some lines from “Swedish Purse” created an unique atmosphere again. This time Pascal was knocking with his bottleneck on the body of his bass guitar.

A short conversation between the musicians followed: Pascal said something to David and then to Ordy. After that “Not one Stone” was played. And “Winter Shaker” finished the regular set in an intense and heavy way. “Thank you very much, God bless you all” David said before they left the stage for the encore break which was again supplied with Indian chants. After returning “We wanna say thank you very much for coming to see us playing tonight and thanks to Birch Book – they were fantastic. I like to thank my Mum. It’s Thanksgiving Day, you know?”, David told us. Some vocal improvisations (“The destiny is manifest” ) lead into the Bob Dylan cover “As I went out one Morning”, which he played with Ordy again.

A wild and heavy “American Wheeze” finished the show in an amazing way.

After some good bye waves something happened, that I have never seen before: One idiot threw a boot (!) on the stage and almost hit David! I do think that David didn’t recognised it first really, because he turned the back to us. Then he saw the shoe and threw it softly back into the first row of the audience.

Well, I was really disappointed about this rude and disrespectful people who were “attending” the show. I still can’t understand why some visitors have to speak during a concert? And this mostly the whole time! Apart from that, the concert was really excellent as you can see it on some videos. The setlist was short (no “Dirty Blue”, “Deerskin Doll” and “Your Russia”) but really fine. Anyway – I was really ashamed for my countrymen – so I have to attend another show of this tour. And so I bought my ticket for Bern (Switzerland), the 7th December 2008.

WOVEN HAND – Paris (Divan Du Monde)

As we arrived at the Divan Du Monde I was really surprised, because there where a very long queue in front of the location. Remember – the last concert at this place was a little desaster: David left the stage because of the huge sound problems. I was told that this was the only time that David abort a show and left the stage. By queuing I met Cédric and Magali – it was great to meet fans in real life finally.

After passing the entrance we took some beers (thanks Magali for the first one!) and wait that the show began. Before the support act The Good Life began, a screen hid the stage on which some videoclips were shown. In the meantime the location get crowded and finally The Good Life started to play.

After the support the screen was rolled out again and some music videoclips were shown. In one of them Woven Hand was featured – it was from the last show at the Divan Du Monde. Then the light went out and Woven Hand started the show. It was obviously that the sound problems of the last show should not happen again: David was really very concentrated and checked with some improvisations if everything is alright and that there are no feedbacks or other noisy and disturbing things. After the Intro of “Snake Bite” they began the evening with “My Russia”. After that an explosive “Tin Finger” was followed (David stood up for a few seconds!) and when David get the bandoneon for “Harm’s Way” people began to cheer and so the very first highlight was played. With “Aeolian Harp (Under the World)” a quieter song was on the setlist before Ordy rocked his drums with the fantastic “The Speaking Hands”. The beauty “Whistling Girl” was next and then “White Bird” (some vocal improvisations, like “Horse Head Fiddle” and “To make a Ring” from David before starting the song) captivated the crowd. “Slota Prow”, also with some various improvisations enriched, was more or less the intro to the amazing “Your Russia”. At the end Peter and Pascal put away their instruments BUT David and Ordy played on – so after a few seconds Peter and Pascal looked at each other, fetched their instruments quickly and an outstanding end of “My Russia” was born. This was the finish of the first part. After that they came back for an perfect encore-set: The powerful “Winter Shaker” rocked the Divan Du Monde and then David fetched the bandoneon again: With the first notes of “American Wheeze” the crowd went crazy! After “Deerskin Doll” and “Dirty Blue” (some people sang some lyrics) the show ended.

Between the songs David did always a little improvisation and sang some new and well known lines – like “To make a Ring”, for example. The sound was not that loud which was really okay, because the people were amazing quiet during the songs and you could hear ANY word, that David sang. The audience was really PERFECT. No speaking or

This was the kick-off of a personal small tour with Woven Hand. Me and my friends planned to see David Eugene Edwards first in Paris at the Divan Du Monde on the 29th November. The next day we attended the wonderful show in Sotteville-les-Rouen and the last show of our tour took also place in France – this time in Amiens. In Paris I saw David the first time after the break-up of 16 Horsepower with the bandoneon again. So the classic songs „Harm’s Way“ and „American Wheeze“ were in the setlist of Woven Hand. And it was obvious that the people loved to hear those gems again! Warren Ellis from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Dirty Three and Grinderman was also at the show – you can see him at the end of the video („The Speaking Hands“) talking with DEE 😉

Some pictures taken by Robert Gil are here!

Snake Bite

WOVEN HAND – Sotteville-les-Rouen (Trianon)

On this day I saw one of the best Woven Hand performances – this time David Eugene Edwards, Pascal Humbert, Peter van Laerhoven and Ordy Garrison played in the village of Sotteville-les-Rouen at the Trianon in France. David was completely into the music that night and when you are looking at the pictures below I’m quite sure that you understand what I mean – you can see an feel the intensity! Enjoy 😉

This one confirmed my opinion of concerts which take place in very small cities or villages: Most of them are one of the best – and also this INCREDIBLE show at the Trianon!

After a two hour car drive we arrived Sotteville-lès Rouen. Therefore it was a Ultima Vez festival, Woven Hand began their show at 10 p.m. We checked our positions in front of David and then 90 minutes of UNBELIEVABLE INTENSITY started:

“Snake Bite” from the tape was the intro before “My Russia” was played. And then the evening started in an incredible HEAVY and HARD direction. It seems that David loosed sometimes his control and rocked like an animal. During “Tin Finger” David leaned back on his stool and spitted in the air and simply went mad. “Harm’s Way” rocked like a beast and with “Aeolian Harp (Under the World)” David gave himself a little time to get calmer for a moment at least. This time the intro was longer played and it reminded me on the Nick Cave classic “Stranger than Kindness”. “The Speaking Hands” were AWESOME as always (still one of my favourite live songs!) and after that, David played “a new song”: He made another vocal improvisation and sang some lines of “Consecration”! What a beautiful moment! Then the wonderful “Whistling Girl” followed. “White Bird” with a lot of improvisations was simply OUTSTANDING and before starting the next tune David turned to Ordy and said in a deep and dark voice: “Slota Prow” – and Ordy get the order and counted in: “One, Two, Three, Four!” Also full with different improvisations (some lines of “To make a Ring” at the beginning) the POWERFUL “Your Russia” followed and left the audience sweating and clapping for more. Then David returned alone for “Swedish Purse/Phyllis Ann”. Then with “Winter Shaker” Woven Hand gave the audience exactly what they want: AN OVERDOSE OF HEAVY AND ROCKIN’ WOVEN HAND – it was incredible! David thanked Wim and Ultima Vez for the inviting and then the next highlight came with “American Wheeze” – the crowd went simply crazy and sing along some lines like “And if I die, by your hand, I’ve gotta home in glory land!”. Just typing this I’m remembering the situation and it just send shivers down my spine. “Deerskin Döll” (as stated on the setlist) and “Dirty Blue” not finished only the show – these two songs improved, why Woven Hand are one of the best live bands. Pascal forget himself like David for a few seconds and kneed down while playing – now everybody in the location recognised that some magic happened at the “Trianon”.

The Setlist:

Snake Bite
My Russia
Horse Head Fiddle/Tin Finger
Harm’s Way
Aeolian Harp (Under the World)
The Speaking Hands
Improvisations (Consecration)
Whistling Girl

I was told that Bertrand Cantat (Noir Désir) also attended the show. The French musician did some recordings with 16 Horsepower – the Gun Club cover „Fire Spirit“ and „The Partisan“ which were released as a single and on the so called „Nouvelle Version“ of „Low Estate„.

Jethro Tull – Munich (Olympiahalle)(06.10.1989) Ticket © Alex MelomaneI won’t forget this day, because it was my very first Jethro Tull live experience! When I was 9 years old I became a fan and so this concert is still very special to me. Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Dave Pegg, Martin Allcock and Doane Perry were on the „Rock Island“ world tour and stopped in Munich, Olympiahalle. Awesome performance!!!!

CALEXICO/VIC CHESNUTT/LAMBCHOP – Vienna (Szene)

What a bill: Calexico, Vic Chesnutt and Lambchop played that day in Vienna at the Szene! Unfortunately no pictures or videos of that night are on the internet, but in my memories this evening will stay there forever 😉

Calexico played most songs from their latest release „Black Light„.

Vic Chesnutt (November 12, 1964 – December 25, 2009) introduced us his album „The Salesman & Bernadette„.

And Lambchop performed their wonderful mixture of Slow Country and Soul on „What Another Man Spills„.

CHRIS ECKMAN & THE LAST SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN BAND – Hartberg (Schloss)

For this show I travelled to the village called Hartberg in Styria to see Chris Eckman (Walkabouts, Chris & Carla) performing with The Last Side Of The Mountain Band at the Schloss Hartberg (Rittersaal) to perform some songs of the album of the same name. He also played some Walkabouts classics and Neil Young’s „Cortez the Killer“. Before the show I did a very interesting interview with Chris for the Austrian independent radio station B138. You can stream/download this interview totally for free here!

The performance was amazing and after the show we had some fun backstage 😉

WOVEN HAND & HELLDORADO – Bonn (Harmonie)

As a huge Woven Hand fan it was obvious that I will do the trip to Bonn because this performance was filmed for the series of „Rockpalast“ at the Harmonie. And as a bonus the amazing band Helldorado from Norway did the support on that night. The shows were simply outstanding and luckily they broadcasted the recorded gigs on German television.

You have missed this? Really? Shame on you! But hey – you are a lucky bastard because you can watch the performances on internet!

Helldorado – you can stream the broadcasting here!

JOE COCKER – Vienna (Stadthalle)

Joe Cocker in Vienna, Stadthalle. Yes, I was there, but to be honest: Just because a friend of mine wanted to be there. So I joined and it was not that bad at all! Especially the female background singers were awesome 😉 I do think this show was part of the „One Sight Of Sin“ tour …

DEEP PURPLE – Wels (Jubiläumshalle)

Deep Purple in Wels (Jubiläumshalle) with new songs from „The Battle Rages On“ on the setlist. One of the last concerts with Ritchie Blackmore on guitar. It was very sad to see that Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore avoided each other. On the 17th November Ritchie left the band.

THE REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND – Vienna (Porgy & Bess)

NICK CAVE – Vienna (Burgtheater)

Nick Cave (solo show feat. Warren Ellis, Jim White and Norman Watt-Roy) live in Vienna at the wonderful Burgtheater. It was obvious that this „band“ didn’t play a long time together – I do think it was the very first time that they performed officialy. The soundcheck was VERY long so the show started one hour late. This performance was part of the 10th anniversary of the „schule für dichtung„, a school for poetry in Vienna for which Nick Cave did some lectures.

Setlist:

The Mercy Seat
Sad Waters
Hallelujah
Into my Arms
God is in the House
There is a Kingdom
Darker with the Day
Gates to the Garden
West Country Girl
So far from me
Little Janey’s gone
The Ship Song
People ain’t no good
As I sat sadly by her Side
Do you love me? (Part 2)
Jack the Ripper
