Looks like you got your hands and ears full for the next few days. We thank you for your euros and hope you got your money's worth.

Airwaves wasn't so bad this year, although it has been better.

Btw Wim, I bought the Hellvar cd at the airport. Also my luggage full of new cds has arrived yesterday. I'm looking forward to Borko and Aela!

Hallo Halli,
Thanks for your reaction. Soon my review of the festival. Top 10 gigs that I've seen personally.
Indeed some names were not on the program. Some of the bands had to organize an off-venue gig. Also lot of there too. Forthcoming weeks more information on all gigs and interesting artists that I've seen. I'm listening to all the CDs @ the moment. Tomorrow I start working again, unfortunately.
The last 20 years I've spend a lot of money in your home country, that I consider also a bit as mine after all this years.
There only has to become an artist more famous as Bjork, and everybody talks about him/her instead of Banks.
Hope Iceland takes a new start soon, culture (good or bad taste) will get them through the hard times that come.
Afram Island!

Dag Veerle,

Ik kijk al uit naar de foto's van Purrkur Pillnikk concert. Kan je ze ook op CD doorsturen naar mij aub?
De foto's van Hellvar @ Tunglid zijn juist opgeladen in slideshow.
Naar Disa aan het luisteren op dit ogenblik. Goed album, en heb haar nog 2 keer ontmoet. Ze wil mijn schilderijtje (op mijn blog als Artwork # 1 - 12 x 12 cm) van haar hebben om als kerstmisgeschenk aan haar grootmoeder te geven.
Groeten en tot horens zeker,
Of kom naar Bang Gang concert @ Botanique zondag 2. November. Je herkent me wel aan mijn t-shirt of tas van Airwaves ;-).
Laatste dag heb ik t-shirt van 66° Nordur gedragen btw.
Bless bless
Wim
