As Aba and I were in the queue we kept looking around for the other artistes travelling on our flight to the festival.
I knew who the were as I had been sent a complete listing from the promoter when I requested our ticket confirmation. But like Little Bo Peep the sheep were nowhere to be found.
Anyway we got checked-in and then went through airport security and then the long, long, long walk to the gate. Trust me people the walk was long. We got on the aircraft, found a seat and I then closed my eyes and tried to get a quick nap as I knew we had a long sleepless night ahead of us, I advised Aba to do the same. We landed in Nimes and went through customs Blood Shanti The Shanti Ites What A Gwan Banks Of The Nile awaited the pick up. As we were waiting for the pick up I noticed some of the other artistes and their musicians passing through immigration.
There was Dave Barker, Dennis Alcapone and their backing band. Seatton, Derrick Morgan or Owen Gray though. We were picked up after minutes of waiting and then on to the hotel to freshen up. Our Spanish driver, Sebastion was cool. We arrived at the hotel and just dumped our bags in the room which we did not need for the show and we were back in the bus and off to the festival site, which we had driven pass to get to the hotel.
We arrived at the festival site and were greeted warmly by the festival staff. We were allocated Izzy who took care of our every need. Nothing was too much trouble for her and a BIG Raspect and thanks from Aba and myself for her tireless work on our behalf. Steflion had spoken to me about all 3 of the above mentioned sounds, combining their sounds together so that for first time in an outdoor arena in France, a proper big sound system would play.
So KiNK Cloud Generator EP 3 sounds were set up and all linked together and we reinforced it with the pa system provided the promoter and we were going to do some serious vibration.
Happy with what were had constructed, we retired to the backstage area to chill out. We were scheduled to play five 25 minute sets inbetween the bands and one 2 hour set to close the show. So we let Steflion, Boris and Abu do the first 3 changeovers and we would do the last two and the closing set.
The man just distress up the program, dread. The first 3 changeovers went smoothly and then Dennis came on stage and instead of playing for his allocated time decided to play on and on and on and on So instead of his 50 minutes set he played on for over 2hours 12 mins and had the nerve to cuss us from the stage; and this is after we had been told it was our time to play by the stage manager.
He and his band left the stage 3 times, 3 times!! The Stage lights were turned off and he came back 3 times to do another couple of numbers. We had to stop playing mid tune, twice as the crowd was jumping and the bass was pumping, so that he could continue wid his stupidness. We at Falasha and the band ' The Shanti-Ites ' would like to thanks Digi for all is contributions to our productions and live shows over the years and wish him well in his new life in Brazil.
It is called the Seismic Cut for very good reason. I have heard heavy bass on a record many times,but nothing like this! So get yourself a copy and shake down the Walls Of Babylon, and if not shake it down, Blood Shanti The Shanti Ites What A Gwan Banks Of The Nile weaken it. The "pronounced as" in brackets are my little joke to follow the style of the track ' What A Gwan ' and is not intended to offend anybody; Yuh Hear!!! Aba was travelling back by car from Carew on the Pembrokeshire coast,Wales, where he had performed at 'Reggae Wales' finish The night before he had done his regular twice monthly session at 'The Bassment Club' in Brighton on the English south coast.
Picked up by driver and driven to Wuppertal arrive venue Quick soundcheck and taken for something to eat and then the hotel: Picked up at and driven to venue. Session from - Ah Who say life pon de road no easy. Let me hear you!
Our passports were run several times under the ultra-violet light and then the woman started bending up my passport to see if it had been put together from other passports. That was Simon Garfunkel Sounds Of Silence I told her with a completely dead pan face, that if she damaged the passport I would hold her responsible and so would her bosses when I slapped a lawsuit on her not only for the damage but more importantly for Racial Discrimination.
We were Blood Shanti The Shanti Ites What A Gwan Banks Of The Nile entry in the country. Lions are only humble provided you do not take liberties with them.
If you trouble Lions you will soon find out that they are not a big fluffy cats, but are very dangerous creatures, very dangerous The Lafayette Afro Rock Band Afon 10 Unreleased Afro Funk Recordings 1971 1974 indeed!
That is why they call me the Humble Lion. Trouble me or my people dem, and the Lion will humble you! But most of the time I look like a big fluffy cat.
Don't take the above anecdote as a slur on the German people, because it is not. Wha the UK, I hear you gasp. Yes people I have had to tell a few Indian breddas who were on immigration control and one Barbadian bredda which part dem come from, but in an accent so crystal you would have thought I was reading the BBC World Service News.
This contrasted very strongly against their own heavily accented English; and when I was cussing them I didn't use loud foul language. I used similes and metaphors in a normal moderate tone, which meant the same things; but only if you have a very good grasp of English and they didn't. So they were humble by the very thing they thought they were, English, as their English colleagues looked on Blood Shanti The Shanti Ites What A Gwan Banks Of The Nile laughed at them.
We were met as soon as we came out of the arrivals area by Tom, who though didn't speak a lot of English made us understand that he was going to drive us to Wuppertal which was a 50 minute journey. So we got into the minibus and off we went. As we were travelling the promoter, Tilmann called Tom to make sure everything was cool. I spoke to Tilmann and rather Various Disco Halal Vol1 go straight to the hotel we wanted to go and check out the club and have a quick play on the equipment.
So this agreed, Tom drove us to the venue. The walls are 3 metres thick Death Grips Government Plates. Tilmann told me that the whole city is built on this rock, that is why Wuppertal has the under hanging monorail as they could not drill tunnels through the rock for a metro.
So after checking the rig it was off to get some food and then the hotel to freshen up; cue Tom. We were picked up by Tilmann at and were driven to the venue. Then Aba took over from them and started his set. His opening tunes were classics from Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and then some wicked Luciano; just to set the mood.
The tune that stood out for me from the night was a Luciano tune that had the lyric: "Solidarity and harmony, brings unity in our family We tired of de tribal war". Too true! I went upstairs onto the balcony that overlooked the dance floor and I was standing behind 2 guys The Abused Loud And Clear were sitting down, looking and listening Blood Shanti The Shanti Ites What A Gwan Banks Of The Nile to what was being played.
The one to my right had blonde hair and his friend to my left had a reversed baseball cap on his head and a red T- shirt, and when that tune rolled the one with the baseball cap closed his eyes, dropped his head and started drawing on an imaginary bass guitar away dread.
By the way he held the imaginary bass, he was left handed and the way he moved his fingers, he was a bass player. He raised his head opened his eyes and with a big smile on his face nodded to his friend. Back Catalogue. Back In Stock. Coming Soon. DJ Charts. Juno Recommends. Today's Offers. Gift Vouchers.
