Music Diary – 30th November

Welcome back again to my personal Music Diary – today for the 30th November!

Back in 2007 me and my friends did a short Woven Hand tour in France (three shows in a row). On the 29th we attended the show in Paris at the Divan Du Monde and one day later the next stop was in Sotteville-les-Rouen at the Trianon to see David Eugene Edwards performing again. And this show was BREATHTAKING and unbelievable POWERFUL! One of the best Woven Hand concerts I’ve ever been so far.

My review, pictures and the setlist of this memorable night you can see here (just scroll down to the bottom of the page for the 30th November)!

Music Diary – 29th November

Hello and welcome back to my Music Diary – today for the 29th November!

Back in 2007 I attended my first concert in France – Woven Hand performed in Paris at the Divan Du Monde. It was such a wonderful live experience and we all were so happy that David Eugene Edwards brought his Concertina along for the two 16 Horsepower classics „Harm’s Way“ and „American Wheeze„. And this night I heard one of the best live versions of „Your Russia„.

Music Diary – 25th November

Hello again to another entry in my personal Music Diary – today for the 25th November!

In 2008 I attended some Woven Hand shows in Europe – after the amazing concerts in Kortrijk and Paris the first date for Austria was on the tourplan. So David Eugene Edwards and his band rocked the Rockhouse in Salzburg for the second time after 2005.

And it was another breathtaking performance – you can find my review and pictures of the show here!

In 2006 Woven Hand played an amazing show in Salzburg at the ARGE.

Music Diary – 14th November

Welcome to my personal Music Diary – today for the 14th November!

This day is a very special one for me, because it was the beginning of an addiction to a very special sound – the so-called Denver sound! On the 14th November 1996 I received my copy of the fantastic debut album from the amazing group Sixteen Horsepower! I came across this band by the sampler „Rolling Stone Presents New Voices – Vol. 8“ which was edited with the German music magazine. On this CD the song „Haw“ hooked me immediately and so I ordered the album „Sackcloth’n’Ashes“ from a mail-order in Bremen.

The band line up at that time was David Eugene Edwards, Keven Soll and Jean-Yves Tola. As a special guest Gordon Gano from the Violent Femmes played violin on some tracks during the recording sessions back in 1995.

Unfortunately it took a long time to see this outstanding band live for the first time – but it happened in September 2002. After the show David was so nice to sign my cover of the US release 😉

Welcome back to my personal Music Diary – today for the 23rd October!

Back in 2002 I bought some nice stuff for my music collection:

On vinyl I bought „Black Light“ from Calexico and „Murder Ballads“ from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

And on CD I added the masterpiece „Low Estate“ from Sixteen Horsepower to my collection.
