tales of girls, boys & marsupials//

The Wombats can always make me smile. So they did last Monday. I barely could concentrate on shooting while watching TORD, Murph and llama Dan on stage. All I wanted to do was to dance and to hug them all one by one. Besides how the fuck could I concentrate when the second song was Kill The Director? How could I while seeing their happy faces? How could I while singing out loud? God how I love this band!

Here is a message to Tord: Jeg elskar deg! Jeg er ikke gift! and also Jeg snakker ikke Norsk...

i'm not sure//

Crushing into Renton is always a nice surprise. I did not have a foggiest idea who is a supporting act for The Wombats and I was in kind of 'I don't care mood'. So I was chatting with some random girl, smoking when they got on stage. Imagine my face when I've overheard the familiar chords. If you noticed a girl with a analogue camera running crazy through the club, oh well that was me (with 'Hey Girl' playing in my head) . But I've made it.

It was good to see you lads.

bow down to the queens//

When Paulake told me this gig has also been sold out, my answer was 'We'll get there. I don't know how, but we will'. I have never been more determined. I was searching for a way to get there for over two months and when the day has come we both were on a guest list of Queens Of The fucking Stone Age.

I' ve promised to a lovely person who got us there, not to tell how and who have made it happened and I'm about to keep this promise. If you read this - thank you. Both Paulake and I are grateful and we feel very lucky that you gave us chance to be there that night. Maybe for you it is nothing but for us - unforgettable.

the naked and famous//

The Naked And Famous are one of these few bands I loved from the first listening. One of these few I could travel miles to see live. And finally one of these few bands it's worth travelling for.

So I went to Brussels to catch them.

yeah ian, just a little bit\\

I was honestly concerned about the future of Rachael, after the bassist Bartek Jastrzebski left the group in early November. Well, idly, because guys are doing fine, if not better than they did before. To count up partnership with the ex-bassist they realised new EP 'add a little bit of tabacco' which you can and you should download from their new page (follow the link below). They have also find themselfs a new fit and fresh (and indie) bassist - Domink.

O hai Dominik! Welcome aboard.

Furthermore on New Year's Eve morning we joined Rachael during rehearsal. It was really nice watching these guys playing the old and new EP's songs with the new fellow member, who under the chastening glance of Michał Kropiński was finding his own way for the old basselines. (rozkurwał kosmos) We also had a chance to see Rachael's creating process. Through the liters of vodka and the psychedelic sound of confusion they gave a birth to the new track(s). Seriously now. Writing this songs seemed very easy for them. The final effect was rad. I'm looking forward to the new recordings to come Thanks for having us guys!

If you wanna see Rachael live, you NEED to come and join the celebration of Niezal Codzienny first birthday on 4 Feb in Sen Pszczoły.

The Rachael's page with the EP is HERE.
The event page is HERE.

And yes of course i couldn't help myself. Here are come pictures.

the art of flying balloons on the fuel called love\\

A Few months ago I saw my favourite band for the first time. It was one of their first shows of the tour. I couldn't manage buying the ticket from the German site, so I was put on the guest list by one of the most adorable guys ever. It was the best gig I've ever been to so far. The energy they spread created magical, psychedelic atmosphere. They put a spell on the crowd and left us speechless. I was trying to write something about that show but I find it impossible. It's one of this things you can't describe with words. You just need to feel it.
Seven months later had a privilege and pleasure to attend another show of the very same band in Berlin (30 XI 2010). It was one of their last shows of the tour. I couldn't manage writing about the previous show, so I was given the photopass....

The band is called FOALS and here's the magic I caught.

Thanks for my best friend Josi Hayes and Nick Eyegrode for making my dream come true.
