Sunhair Records and Fruits de Mer Records' new three-day festival in Germany
If you're going to get involved with a festival in Germany, my advice is leave it to Pete Bingham from Sendelica and Horst Sunhair from Sunhair Records to organise everything, then sit back and pretend you've got something to do with it....worked for me, anyway
The line-up they put together is just plain mind-boggling:
The Bevis Frond
Ax Genrich and Sunhair
Julie's Haircut (late replacements for Electric Orange)
Günter Schickert's Ziguri (late replacements for nick nicely)
...with the festival held indoors at the Cairo in Wurzburg (an hour by train from Frankfurt)
Tickets sold out fast for this one - sorry, better get booking for Cardigan - don't want to miss out on both!
everyone who came along got two free (and exclusive) FdM CDs on the Friday and a back-catalogue FdM 7" on the Saturday - as well as the first chance to buy the 'Kopf Musik' and Kris Gietkowski 3CD sets, and very limited supplies of the Michael Padilla special edition of 'Atmospheres' and recent FdM releases from FdM on black vinyl...they're particularly limited as Liz and I had to carry them from Surrey to Wurzburg!
