synchro: TQI, morality is a huge question and capacitors a deep subject. I say do it and don't tell anyone. Smile

Then onto Japan and the Americas I'll be watching in 2D for sure!

Very cool, hope the tour goes well!
I'm digging the poster, too. No surprise, given the artist.

Yesterday, 6 july, I was at the Messer Chups concert in Utrecht, Netherlands. Great performance, great songs. I think there were about 90 people in the venue. Also some rockabilly types. A guest player played theremin and saxophone in some songs. If they are in town, go.

Wonder if it was Stephen Blickenstaff who plays Theremin (Atomic Mosquitos)? I see he did the event flyer artwork.
Maybe someone else, as unless two 'guest' players, did not ever see him playing sax, but don't think there are a lot of Theremin players out there.

I think it's DJ Ir Vendermeulen from Amsterdam. Big record collector of old music and also plays Sax.

Yes, I think he's Dutch. And Oleg told the crowd that they didn't rehearse, so I guess it was a one of a kind specially for this evening.

They did the same at the Sjock festival in Gierle past weekend.


They played with him at the Sjock Festival Belgium and maybe one other. It looks as though they are spicing things up where possible, now they have Boris triggering samples they can play some of their older material and a guest who can play sax is a bonus. To be honest I prefer standard issue Messer Chups plus samples.

i was at sjock and seriously it was the best messer chups i saw since longtime

It's just a suggestion, if Pongo would change the thread title to World Tour 2018 we could follow Messer Chups throughout within a single thread.
According to the Messer Chups website they will visit: The U.S., Canada, South America, Australia and Japan.. I may be mistaken but I thought I read Israel too ?

They did a fine show at Sjock. Didn't realise it was Ir. on sax.
Oleg did find the sweet spot on that jazzmaster. Damn that sounded good, even with 'festival circumstances'...


here are some shots I took at the Sjock Festival... Great gig by the way and DJ IR Vermeulen was a great add on!





Here, last but not least, is a good impression how packed the Titty Twister tent was. The Sjock Festival has three stages; the main stage, the Titty Twister and the Bang Bang Stages, where Aloha sluts played on sunday. Man, can't tell you how proud I was to see my band's name on the same poster as MC5, Descendents, Mummies (!), Pennywise, Reverend Horton Heat and lots more!

Congrats Arny,
Thanks for pics
