Our best performance of all times happened last April at Elektroanschlag. I’d like to thank Gandy and Ronny for organising a top-notch festival. Germany was awesome; it had been ten years since we last played. I couldn’t believe some people still remembered us from our live show with Eva|3 at Maschinenfest 2007. The feedback from the audience was heart warming and beyond everything I was expecting. I remember still shaking from the intensity that was shared even after the performance had finished. It enabled me to meet Stefan Alt in the flesh, to catch up with people I hadn’t seen in ten years and to get to know many other ants. The highlights of the festival for me were Esplendor Geometrico and Beinhaus.
Our third memorable gig of the year was at Infest summer camp . You really do a great job, Mark Guy, Chris Molyneux and all the volunteers, at making artists welcome and at providing class live acts. I ‘d never thought I could see Revolting Cocks live and you made that wish come true! Despite a few technical issues, the audience still got our raw message and energy. Nothing would have happened without the precious help of Kevin King (our visuals received lots of praise), as well as Eva|3 and Electronic Substance Abuse who helped me on stage. I caught up with old friends, laughed a lot (of course) and met new ones, I just loved it!
One of my favourite gigs of the year was Skinny Puppy at the Forum in London. They were all on top form and delivered a flawless performance. It was wonderful to rediscover old tracks in the light of a modern context.
There is probably more I should write about 2017 but my mind is now slowly turning to the next chapter. With my incredible partner in music and in life, we started working on a brand new video to illustrate the track “A Fly as a Pet.” We hope it is finished in early 2018. Watch this space!
