Back. Zorsted. Bloody amazing time had by all.

Proper updatey thing tomorrow....

760 miles, one festival, one stadium gig, bust vocal chords, a brace of hangovers and by gum, I'd do it all again like a shot. ;)

Maiden tomorrow! It's going to be bloody awesome, we have seats so I won't be getting the bejesus kicked out of me down the front and it's just going to kick seven shades of ass.

Of course, anxiety is kicking my ass hard. *Sigh*

Immediately after the Maiden gig, we're heading down to Dover and getting a ferry across to France, then driving to the Rosrock festival in Rossum, Holland. Well. Slay's driving....

Seeing Zico, staying in a hotel, coming home Monday. Yes I'm looking forward to it but argh, criminey, if the anxiety would just give me a break I'd enjoy it a lot more. *Sigh*

However, this picture cheered me up immensely! )

Just got back from seeing Wednesday 13 at the zodiac. Surprisingly good, actually. Both support bands excellent and I fell in love with the first band's lead singer. She's tiny and gorgeous and sings like a furious angel. I told her their set was cool and she smiled at me.

Second support band - Sign, they're called - come from Iceland. From the same place Bish lives. We saw their drummer, bassist and one of their guitarists in a bar band the last time we were in Hafnarfjordur (sp?). Heh. They're awfully good.

Wednesday 13 were awesome. Much to my surprise.

Also, got shitfaced.

Lots of fun.

In two minutes I will be 37. Go me.

Paracetamol then bed, methinks....

So! As all the pics I got at the show were cruddy, here are the ones I managed to grab beforehand.

Ah, I love to grope a rockstar in the morning.... )

Also, I was a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad puppy yesterday.... )

The lights went down, the noise went up!

Hooray, I thought!

Mr Itchy Crotch humped my arse a few more times for good measure, and the oh-so-familiar barrier squeeze began. Ah yes, the smell of sweat and the tight contact with almost total strangers! I love it. And so the show began, dear reader, and what a show it was! )
mad_andy: (Blue Dirk and Kai)

Last night, I got off my ass and went to Shepherd's Bush to see the Hellish Rock show. Axxis, Gamma Ray, and Helloween.

And what was it like, you wonder...? )

So Apo were bloody amazing, as expected. Hung out with [livejournal.com profile] glammetalkitten which was lots of fun - so cool having someone to squee with! - and one of the chaps we hung out with on the last BruceAir trip recognised us and came tanking over. He hung out with us for the rest of the gig, and that was wicked cool too. :D

Got Slay to agree to hang out behind the venue for a bit to see if we could catch up with the band - we failed, but it was fun watching someone else load out for a change!

Pimped Zico a lot. :D A suprising number of people had heard of them, but not heard the music. I advised them to do so.

Oh, and we met up with [livejournal.com profile] anpusat! I forgot to tell her how much I'd enjoyed her RFP novel, but I'm sure we'll bump into her again sometime. ;) *Waves*

And now it's almost 3am and I'm at work, so 'tis bedtime...
mad_andy: (Default)
So I'm going to bed for a couple of hour's kip. Then up and off to Oxford to catch the bus to London to see Apocalyptica tonight, whee! :)

[livejournal.com profile] glammetalkitten, will see you there. I'm not barrier fit and won't be getting there early, so I'll probably watch the show from the bar. Have a couple of beers, chill out. I'll see you there, yes? I've got your mobile number, so I'll text.

You up for hanging around afterwards, try and catch the band...? Could be fun.

Laters all!

OK, off to Southampton in a couple of minutes, hopefully to meet up with the boys before the gig! If not then bugger it, I has a hotel (in the right sodding place this time), I has a lift in and back to the gig, I'll manage. Southampton tonight, London tomorrow, then Bristol and home, poo.

God knows when I'll make it back online, so y'all be good while I'm gone!
mad_andy: (Dirk squee)
God, where do I start?


It was a dark and stormy night... well, morning... )

And I have to get ready to go to work. More later, I hope!
mad_andy: (Bruce Animated)
Damn, but it was a good gig. No photos, because I have still not found my damn camera - if it hasn't turned up before we go to Birmingham, I'm buying another one and to hell with what Slay says.

Anyway. Rock City, Nottingham awaited us with bated breath! Well. Sort of... )

So that was Nottingham. Zico - 1, Andy - 0, but I'm working on it. ;)

Birmingham next!
mad_andy: (Dirk squee)
Right, uber quick post before I crash. So we went to a non-metal festival to see one band today... )

Oh, and here's the official vid for the next single, 'Anaemia':

Oh my goodness I am on such a high.

I mean, really. :D

Cos last night we went to see Breed77 at the Zodiac in Oxford and were they good? Read more... )

Is Monday.

First, the beasties: )

Turisas tomorrow! )

Thus. Things to do today: )

That ought to keep me busy!

Had a great time sunday visiting [livejournal.com profile] glammetalkitten, even if we were ignored by rockstars (*pfah*) and sneered at by their girlfriends. Who all look the same. I reckon they get the bloody things mail order.

(Oh, and I fell in lust with a bassist - who, [livejournal.com profile] arrys_girlie thinks, looks like my beloved Dirk! She actually has a point...)

AND I've just posted another chapter of Journeyman. Am now on the last one, the epilogue being nine tenths written already. The damn thing laid dormant for a year then, with a good poke from [livejournal.com profile] rdyfrde, [livejournal.com profile] arrys_girlie and some fairly constant quiet under-the-table nagging from [livejournal.com profile] rockfic took off like a sodding rocket and won't shut up.

Can't wait to get it finished. And then never look at the flippin' thing again!

Best of all? Off to part-ay with [livejournal.com profile] rathenar tomorrow after work! Gonna be fun. Gonna stay on the boat. Gonna get very lost driving round Cambridge in the fog....

And now I'm knackered, so goodnight y'all.

I am freezing. It's been cold in the studio all day and it's in mt bloody bones now. I'm cold and I'm sick - but I'm still going to see [livejournal.com profile] glammetelkitten on Sunday (wheee!) and stalk rockstars. Although I shall be too full of cold to actually do anything....

Were it not for the fact that I now have Tattooist Pumpkin on the back of my right wrist, I would say it's been a shit day.

Well, last night I went and saw Lordi...

And this morning, I have bruises on my bruises, a headache and a gravelled throat, very little voice and my joints ache. Why? Read more... )

[livejournal.com profile] rathenar has sorted tickets - so bugger seeing Maiden in Birmingham or boring old London, I'm off to Barcelona!!!!

*Hugs self at thought of another Adventure*

And of course I'm off to see [livejournal.com profile] silicondreams next month, not to mention seeing Gamma Ray, Helloween and Def Leppard at the Gods of Metal festival in Milan in June with her. Yep, another Adventure laden summer stretches before me, no matter what happens with my accursed marriage.

And the little man has been and laid the latex screed on the kitchen floor, so me, Axl and the cats are all currently stoned on the fumes. Bonus.
