Sananda & the Nudge Nudge Live* in Stockholm Sweden 2014!
*We were LIVE in Sweden. We don’t ‘Live’ in Sweden, we live in Italy. Just for the record (as well as the CD and Mp3).
We arrived in the north countries fit to fight. Enea, Nick ‘the Sticks’ and me, Sananda. The trip started out well enough but by the time we got to the airport in Milano, I could sense that I might encounter problems getting my Pet Hermit Crab through customs. I was right! Despite my explanation that it wasn’t ‘food’ I was carrying, but a favored pet, friend, mentor and confidant. Although the relevant officials were somewhat charmed by my commitment to my crustacean cohort, still I had no choice but to start my journey without my faithful buddy, not the most auspicious sign. So as not to be totally caught out, I sold it to the food court and with a couple of beers as bonus. Turns out that it wasn’t so much the Crab that the authorities objected to as the Bucket of Salt Water……
We played for some people in Stockholm who were invited to see our presentation so as to surmise future participation in our enterprise and to skim some of the foam of skepticism from the beer and their barrels. Far more than several showed, though the concert was in essence a ‘showcase’ aimed at bringing our northern brothers up to speed on the current situation as time has pressed its breast upon us and exchanged some milk for more miles and memories.
It was a long haul, the Zugebrian Time Lords and their barking dogs stalked the entire way. They never wasted an opportunity for mischief nor the misdeeds that spring from their seeds. But we stayed focused and took what time gave us. It is always good to spend a little time with the Swedes. They gave us the Vikings and taught us how to watch porn. And it is always a pleasure and privilege to spend a little time with YOU (and your ears and eyeballs)!
Enjoy our show. It was intended to summarize Post Millennium Rock’s last dozen years until now. And don’t worry about my good old Pet Hermit Crab. Apparently he in attempting to escape leapt to his demise right into a crab salad, where he was complimented for being so fresh (and where he was complemented WITH a zesty Greek tartar sauce and crisp iceberg lettuce)!
We disavow any possible mistakes as evidence that the Zugebrian Time Lords have Infiltrated your Waveform and Brainwashed your Mind with Suggestive Negative Subatomic Plasma Particles. They are some sneaky bitches; it’s how they roll.
