Hello from backstage in Berlin. This is shaping up to be one of the most fun tours I’ve been on in a while, but also probably the worst for sightseeing. This is the first time I’ve ever been to Germany, let alone played here. Last night in Koln / Cologne, we had a blast – sold out show, an extra show in the car park, the works. Alas I missed the entire city, and am in the process of doing the same in Berlin. Shucks.
The tour is generally ace. The UK shows were all a blast, really nice to play to old friends and new alike. Gaslight fucking rule, but we knew this. Polar Bear Club, my erstwhile travelling companions and other support act, are the turn up for the books – excellent people, excellent band. I feel adventurous. Tomorrow we’ll be in Sweden, another first. I feel European.
