Post I played my second gig in 16 yrs at the weekend! Incl. pics.
Just last year I made my return to gigging after 15 years, and on Saturday night my band finally played its second gig! Something like 100 people turned up (to see the band we supported (far more experienced, local and much younger than us – all 21), who'd kindly invited us to rock the rural Allgäu with them. Despite the majority of the audience not knowing us from Adam, we had a proper moshpit going quickly, and I played a solo standing on a PA speaker in front of the stage, surrounded by headbangers (OK, a few, I'll not get carried away!).

I was most perturbed when a bloke suddenly whipped out a massive TV camera and pointed it at me just as I launched into a solo. He then proceeded to film our crotches one by one for most of the rest of the set. :shock: Apparently the headliners were making a live DVD, and some 15 minutes or so of footage of us got shot, too. We were also recorded off the mixing desk, but I've yet to hear the incriminating material of my performance...

I've just received 80-something more photos from the show. Unlike those I've posted here, you can see that:

1) We had an audience.
2) There were women in it, even young, attractive ones! :shock:
3) Young women danced to our music – we're a thrash metal band on its second gig, that truly is a "only in rurual Germany" moment! :D 8)

I'll try to get some of these up later.

Here's some pics I do have available now, I'm the bloke with the regulation-issue black Ibanez RG550, Herbert can occasionally be seen glowering in the background because he'd been told off by the sound guys for being too loud:

Rock 'n' roll!

Oh yeah, we aim to – if we get the footage and it is OK.

We're playing Friday week and with a bit of luck I can take my own video and audio recording gear and take control.

We really weren't expecting to be filmed on Saturday, especially not a pro-shoot – apparently the guy with the camera also works for mainstream German TV! :shock:

Thanks for the nice comments, guys! :D

Which beard, Matt? Tim, the singer/other guitarist and Basti, our ex-bassist standing in on this and the next gig, both have pretty awesome beards!

Basti's used to be even longer, and has gone through a number of awesome changes:
