Review by Deadfreddy on Aug 02 2005 

Great show. This was the first time i saw them again in over 15 years. Angelo still has the intensity. I liked the newer bandmembers. great drummer. My wife saw them live for the first time and really liked it. Angelo walked into the public a few times and got the crowd going. Party at ground zero and sunless saturdays were favorites for me. They played al lot of the old stuff. My ears are still ...


Review by Arno on Aug 02 2005 

I had a splendid time. Denis and Arne came from Belgium (and I was very embarassed to have to show them bars close at 12 in Amsterdam, even in the summer holiday tourist season), some friends came over (including 2 lady fishbone virgins, who thoroughly enjoyed themselves). Also, Marie from the forum was there.

We came to the venue around 21:10, missing wolfunkind and hearing Fishbone start as we were walking in the door. This was due to an 80's party that was scheduled to start at 23:30.

I don't have the setlist, but I think both Arne and Denis have it, so I won't bother. The show started quite slow, as the entire band seemed to have enjoyed some amsterdam warez. Norwoods eyes were absent the entire night.

Things picked up at the third or fourth song (Angelo walking into the crowd a few times) and even though the paradiso wasn't packed, there were a good number of people there and there was an active pit.

The show was fun, but there weren't a lot of highlights. Curtis Storey was good on trumpet, even though he had started learning the songs after he came to Europe. Unfortunately, he was flat on his last solo.

A small girl that stood at the stage (she could barely look over it) got more than she bargained for when a big bloke couldn't avoid her as he was centrifuged out of the pit. She hit her head hard and was groggy for a bit. Wet Daddy saw it happen and came out to check on her at the end of the show. (it probably did help that she was beautiful)

The show lasted until 23:15 or so and they played all that was on the playlist.

After, we got to talk to Brian, the manager and some of the band. Interesting tidbits:

-allegedly (cuz there were different opinions) there are 7 new tracks, for the planned new album, to come out on Fishbone records. -Curtis Storey is a music teacher from LA who came to temporarily replace Padre, who is in the band but had to take care of some family business. (although it seems he may be out for good, only working on the studio stuff. most telling quote "the door is open") -Tori is doing Morris Day gigs again, until "being only in Fishbone can support him" -Norwood said he wanted some of the henhouse tracks on the new album, though if he meant those recordings or rerecorded versions wasn't clear

They have 2 days off now, in Paris. So the thursday gig should see them rested, I hope...


Review by Arne on Aug 02 2005 

Hi all,

it was a short night and already a long day at work, but here is my review...

After a way too long drive to Amsterdam (ca.4h instead of the expected 2-2.5h) due to an accident just before entering Amsterdam, I finally ended up at Arno's place (must have been 20h25)... As we were already late we splitted up cab sharing and cycling to the Paradiso ...

I liked the gig. I must admit I was more busy taking pictures than listening to the gig. Shame on me. Nevertheless it was a pleasure to meet other fans. Especially our "Denis national".

Review by Gaberionel on Aug 06 2005 

Thank you very much for this show, there are people who go to the church and others to Fishbone, I am of them second ones, after this, they feel more Life again which sometimes seems to disappear in this "holy shit" we have to see every day at every place.

I saw you before in Germany two times in Prime Club and in Dusseldorf, where you played a so hard sound that the Police c...


Review by Denis on Sep 01 2005 

This was a perfect way to start my holidays !

Despite a 2 hours traffic jam just at the entrance of Amsterdam, and getting lost in A'dam for good measure, which made me miss Wolfunkind, I met up with Arno and his friends + Arne who was as gifted as i was re: traffic. It might sound a bit silly, but i just find it incredible to have been able to make good friends like them ov...
