Ciao Italia! Ciao Milano e Firenze!

Exact one month from now i'm on my way to Italia.
First time EVER in Italia!
The reason of going to Italia is Music, and to meet Aurora again.
It's been a 1.5 year since the last AND first time we've met.
I got to meet Aurora thanx to this one musician, Mike Patton.
It's also his music that's going to bring us together again, in Italia.
Many people know i would love to visit Italia and many think that is the reason I choose to see Mondo Cane there, but that is not really the reason of why i'm going there, the main reason is to meet Aurii again.
We want to meet up for sooo long and since Mondo Cane will play in Italia i knew Aurii would be there, so, Italia, here i come!

We will be attending the Italian Mondo Cane tourdates, Milano and Firenze.

4/5 days of Italia, can't be that bad, huh?
Aurii did warn me for the extreme heat of Italia. I hope my Dutch ass can handle it....

Mike Patton @ Holland Festival, Amsterdam.

Laborintus II:

Friday 18 june, Mike Patton flew specialy over to Amsterdam to perform at Holland Festival.He was going to perform Laborintus II with Nederlands Kamerkoor and later on a Jazz Improv set with Ictus Ensemble musicians.Laborintus II is a music piece by Luciano Berio.

If you went to this show without hearing Laborintus II before, you might got confused a bit due the fact many things we're going on on stage.But you wouldnt expect anything else if you attended the show as a Patton Fan.I listened to Laborintus II before and was in love with the female voices from the start.To give you an idea what the performance was like:Laborintus II is like a Dramatic Opera but without the actors.When there are no actors and your Italian is total crap (there were things said in english) your imagination and emotions could go anywhere from dramatic to "wild".

Mike Patton's part of this performance was a "story teller".he started by talking "slow" somewhere during the show he started shouting in his magephone. He ended his part by talking towards the audience in a "they lived happily ever after" feeling but i'm pretty sure that was not what he was saying.

After this performance (wich i think was about 40/45 min) there was a 15 min break, free drinks.After the break Patton would return to the stage doing something he probably enjoys doing the most, jazz improv with sound effects.He performed together with I.C.P musicians: Han Bemmink (drummer), Ab Baars (Horns), Guus Jansen (piano), Mary Oliver (violin) and Michael Moore (Horns).

The Vita Nouva Sessions:
This set was crazy, each musician was playing his own music part.One of the funny moments during this set was when Han Bemmink was "spanking" his drumset with a towel, to me, he was the man of the show.Encore came unexpected due that the the violin player, Mary Oliver, walked out too early on stage and the crowed cheered for more so she made signs to the guys to come back out, and they did.Mary started with a "solo" and after a while she looked at the guys to see what they were doing and they laughed and all joined in.I think this set lasted for about 45 min.

The night ended with a dj set, music inspired by Italian B movies.
On the screen you could watch a movie, no idea what the movie was called.The crowed was "mixed" you had people attending 'cause they we're familiar with Berio's music and than you had the Patton Fans.Patton fans we're not only from Holland, some flew over from wherever in Europe.

Secret Chiefs, Secret Song....

I've seen Secret Chiefs 3 4 times live now and they always play this one song wich i LUV so fucking much and i cant find it on any of my SC3 cd's..... well i've been told by Jai Young Kim they NEVER released it..... GEESUS!

Song is called "Bereshith"


Faith No More Berlin 16-06-09

Dus, after seeing Faith No More for the first time i just could not believe i saw them LIVE....and still can't.
After the Berlin show it just seemed so "unreal" that i just watched one of my all time favourite bands LIVE! Of course i've seen a fuckload of bootlegs but to actually see them live LIVE..... nope, never thought that would happen.

First time i heard about the reunion was when aurora contacted me and she was not able to comunicate and she was just so hyper i got hyper too in a aggressive way like TELL ME!!!!! and she just sended me the link to rock a rolla website and there was just posted that Faith No More was going to reunite for a series of dates. I started screaming like crazy, CRAZY crazy.

Then Tourdates started popping up and one of the first few solo shows was in Berlin and since Brixton was sold out i thought "ok, im gonna make an exeption for FNM..... Im going to Germany"

I dont even want to mention it brought tears to my eyes..... oh i just did.

June 16 2009 was FAITH NO MORE DAY, I was going to meet up with people in Berlin who i know for years virtualy but never actually met in 3D.
After meeting them i was highly dissapointed, JUST KIDDING!

At the venue i met some other crazy nice people from all over Europe, even a girl that flew over from Russia with NO ticket. We told her that FNM was going to play in Russia a week later wich she simply replied " I have vacation now"..... AWESUMO!

When the gates went open we all ran like crazy motherfuckers and fuck yeah i got front row! I met Paulina from Poland (nice girl) and we just started talking as if we knew eachother for years, crazy!

Opening acts were Farmers Maret and ZU! mighty Mickey it was GOOD!

THEN FAITH NO MORE, when reunited started the tears were fighting their way out and fuck a duck Patton's voice made it even worse! I was crying like a baby.
When The Real Thing started me and Paulina looked at eachoter and both said "ohhhh SHIT!!" and what happened after that, i cant really remember since the show totally sucked me up and what was happening around didnt matter at that time.

Berlin Setlist:

The Real Thing
From Out Of Nowhere
Land Of Sunshine
Evidence (in Spanish)
Poker Face/Chinese Arithmetic
Surprise! You’re Dead!

After the show i met up with Petra and Lukas again and we were all just so happy and hyper
