Review by Denis on Jun 02 2004 

Well, Arno pretty much summed it up. I can't think of anything right now to add, except maybe for the gig description. The prime club is really small. i'm tempted to say that it's no larger than my living room, stage included, but it's bigger, really. The dance floor is only sth like 20ft by 15. Attendance was around 150, luckily, they chose that venue instead of the former one where the...


Review from the Nuttwork's archive 

just got back from the Cologne show. I had a great time again and this time I got to talk to most of the band and crew, which was an interesting change. We (Denis and me) especially talked for a long time to Norwood. I made the unfortunate mistake on congratulating him with his daughter, which prompted him to talk about the phone conversation he had with his mother last weekend in which he made it clear that he did NOT want to know the gender of the child until it was born.


He didn't mind too much though, I got the impression, luckily.

Some of the more interesting information: -Starting september in Canada, maybe going till the end of the year, a tour with Mighty Mighty Bosstones (Southern states should be included). -A second Trulio Disgracias album will be recorded to be released shortly after the first (which should be a few months after Dirty Walts "almost done, really!" album). -John Steward is more and more comfortable in his drumming. Like he said "at least I can talk now during playing my parts" to the secret agent Jay while complaining about Jay adjusting the wrong volume (cymbal instead of bass drum), this ofcourse might have to do with John's Tom Waits like voice... -They're adding songs they haven't played for years. Norwood wanted 'Simon says the Kingpin' next. -The song with Primus (et al) will not be released right now, but they do have it with them. Unfortunately, the playing of the track (which they mentioned a couple of times) never materialized in the end. Maybe another soldier is luckier. -There is very little chance of Fishbone working with Bill Lasswel. Back in the days of either Reality or GAMAB (Norwood wasn't sure) they asked Bernie Worrel to produce the album, who agreed (!) on the condition he could bring along Bill Lasswel. Needless to say Bernie never produced the album. Aparently I am not the only one he does not like Lasswel's production values. -Fishbone never played on a Blowfly album. They did add vocals though. -Norwood is looking for the Joy album they played on. Who's going to give him a copy? -They've got loads of Nuttsactor 5 stuff. Everything should become available eventually through an online shop (don't hold your breath) -Part of the reason why they have so much stuff is that Norwood, Chris and Kendall used to rehearse up to 9 hours a day! This was done in part to get their parts down so well that they could be drinking, smoking, mushrooming or tripping (or a combination of aforementioned) and still play their parts right. Another reason was the complexity of some of Angelo's stuff. He'd come over and try to explain his latest song and that would take 9 hours easily. -They like the Nuttwork Neighbourhood NuttSack. Right now Norwood, Angelo and Walt have a copy. As soon as Robert has his copy we can start the US tree, the European one can start, afaic.

On to the show. Apparently, due to the soundlevel on stage, the PA needs to be LOUD too. This did not help the sound, although it was way better then Amsterdam. The stage was nice and deep (about 25 feet) but barely more then a foot high and just 20 feet wide. The place was tiny and not even jampacked. Angelo was writing (presumably Chronicles) until just before the show.

They opened with Every Day Sunshine! (which reminded me of the Reality video. They did play it slow...) Shaky Ground had Funkadelic written all over it, starting out with "I wanna know if it's good to you baby" in the guitar line (they may add the chant later on) and changing towards the end to the end of 'Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow' (thank god for short songtitles)

Again, no one on stage during Pants, just as in Amsterdam.

The first encore was Ground Zero and Karma Tsunami. The second encore was the shortest I've seen. A fast paced version of Deep Inside. On and off in just over a minute, I guess.

A nice detail was a short rant about the clothing brand Fishbone before Subliminal Fascism (which closed the first set).

Anyway, I'm glad to be back again from Germany. I only fell almost asleep once on the way back, so it's been relatively save. ;)

Interesting side note, the traffic information came on in the middle of my cd, and the music that started right after was 'the Suffering', I listened to it and they did indeed butcher the "poor motherfucker" line. The DJ was positive though, but mainly just read the promo material about the guest on the Nuttwerx album.

That's all for now.

peace out,
