Hello, dear Music Maniacs all around the world to my music diary for the 26th July!
After seeing Mr. Tom Waits live in Paris twice in a row in 2008, a third concert followed directly. So I arrived in Munich for Woven Hand. David Eugene Edwards and his band were billed for a show at the club Ampere that day.
Today’s music diary entry features Woven Hand again: On the 11th July 2006 me and my friend took the train to Budapest to see David Eugene Edwards, Pascal Humbert, Peter van Laerhoven and Ordy Garrison performing on a boat called A38! Comparing the gig to the Vienna one that took place just a day before, this show was much better! More intense, energy and the new line up with Pascal on bass obviously worked superiorily.
Another page in my music diary – and another Woven Hand concert:
On the 10th July 2006 David Eugene Edwards, Peter van Laerhoven, Pascal Humbert and Ordy Garrison performed in Vienna at the Szene and introduced us to the latest release „Mosaic„. And it was the first time that I saw the former 16 Horsepower bass man live again! My expectations were very high because the last three shows I attended in 2005 (Salzburg, Vienna and Bonn) were breathtaking and still fresh in my memory. This time the show was not that intense and I do think that it was because of the new line up. So I was quite sure that they will get along on stage better and better with the time – and this is what happened 😉
Today, on the 9th July 2010, it was the first time that I cross the Austrian border to Slovakia. One day after an awesome Woven Hand show in Vienna we headed to the Pohoda Festival in Trencin. Holy cow – the weather was unbelievable hot and the band was scheduled for 2 p.m.! Very ridiculous – but anyway: Woven Hand performed very tight, heavy, loud and intense.
Today, on the 20th June, I didn’t attend any concert, but I bought myself one of my all time favorite albums as it happened on the 20th June 2006:
„Mosaic“ by Woven Hand (or Wovenhand – it’s up to you as DEE told me in an interview) was released and as a huge fan of David Eugene Edwards (and 16 Horsepower of course!) I was very looking forward to this one.

For the Austrian independent radio station B138 I hosted the programme called „Unerhört„. It was a weekly feature and broadcasted 72 times. Here is a small selection of my personal favorites and for your streaming pleasure – enjoy 😉
Follow this link to stream/download my radio show called “Die musikalische Buchstabensupe eines Melomanen”, which I hosted also for the Austrian independent radio station B138. It’s a series through my private music collection from A (like AC/DC) until Z (like ZZ Top). Also I recorded some other broadcasts, like a special about the release of Johnny Cash’s album “American Recordings VI – Ain’t No Grave” (ed. 2010) which features also some speeches of John Carter Cash, the son of the Man in Black. Also I did two broadcasts which features my personal favorites of the year 2010 – like Woven Hand, Munly & The Lupercalians, Clan Edison or Murder By Death. Tune in and enjoy!
