3 songs about Berlin

Deaf Havana; CassiopeiaOh Berlin my love, I’ve got you underneath my skin

Roddy Hart & the Lonesome Fire; BerlinBerlin, you took me in when I needed you most. I promise we’ll always be close.

Kent; Berlin. Du är liv. Du är dom långa milen mot Berlin. [English: You are life. You are the many miles to Berlin.]

If this was Sandman and I was Constantine, it’d be a sign of something for sure. Less sure what that something would be.

PS. A favorite line out of all the lines ever is in the Kent track: Dom viskar: Du är tidlös men dom menar omodern, En elakhet som blir den ultimata komplimangen. [English: They whisper: You’re timeless, but they mean obsolete, A spiteful remark turned into the ultimate compliment.]

On my wish list

I just got tickets to see Architects in June, so this year is saved, but it’d be kinda neat if the following could be arsed to come around these parts:

Northlane. Saw them last year when they opened for Amity Affliction. Needless to say, they were brilliant. And they just released a new album this morning, so it shouldn’t be completely impossible??

Casey. Again. Saw last year, was quite impressed. Because they’re quite active on social media they’re always on my mind. This social media thing, it truly is brilliant PR, they don’t even have to talk about their music, just make sure we keep thinking about them. Maybe Brighton this time?

Russell Brand. Yea, yea, he’s not a musician, but he is touring. Been before and it was lots of fun. But it was also Glasgow. No type gig sucks in Glasgow. Exception confirming the rule: Proclaimers.

Glasvegas. But to be fair, I’d settle for a record release date. Or you know, some news? Anything?

Editors. I have no excuse and am probably sick in the head. Just not a festival.

HIM. I love HIM but never been to see HIM, that’s just wrong. They’ll be touring this year and from the looks of it they’re going just about everywhere except here. And to Glasgow in December. That is where I draw the line. One cannot be going to Glasgow in December. Also it’s sold out so that’s one thing I don’t even have to consider…

Nine Inch Nails. I hear they’ve booked a couple of dates in the US. Is it too much to ask they also swing by Europe? I could expand “these parts” to include Berlin. For NIN anyway. Actually…Berlin’s current gig selection is looking pretty good already. So maybe Berlin regardless?

Was thinking that I’d just not go anywhere at all this year, to save money for wallpaper and such. But I am so easily distracted. Who needs wallpaper when I could go to Oslo to see Architects? I mean twice in a year, that’s…also not enough?

Greed. Such greed.
