listening to…spirit of humanity

Rout - Spirit download

Bouncy bouncing to Rout from Enter Shikaris’ new album as it is major dope on a rope, non slip soap! Favorites so far are Stagnant & Troglodytes, but why they no in 320???? lol Feeling better about my purchase via the exclusive site on music glue though all proceeds of the album go to ‘STEP UP’ the fair trade organic activist clothing company, so its a solid green purchase all round ;)

Kelu in Action 1

Ok so obviously i didn’t get FEELINGS tattooed on my neck and shame on all of you who left comments of commendation for such a silly idea!! Was quite funny though having drunken ravers in Mannheim clawing at my neck to check the artwork lol ;) (more…)

Silvius Brabo ;P

Antwerp Great Market Sq

This weekend whilst in Antwerp i managed to fit a flit of sightseeing in between the 2 gigs, studio & drinking sessions. There was only one thing i really wanted to see and that was the  statue of Silvius Brabo ‘the hand tosser’ whose actions Antwerp is allegedly named after… (more…)

Thank Q Summer Sonic!

Summer Sonic Mountain Stage 2009

What an amazing weekend in an awesome country, Summer Sonic 2009 Japan was one of the best live experiences i’ve ever had! Truely humbling, the two shows with the Qemists in Tokyo & Osaka were what my childhood dreams were made of 10,000 strong crowds, speaker rigs and scaffolding to climb and gyrate on, huge video screens, dressing rooms next to uber stars, autograph signings, TV interviews…the list goes on and on.

Tour Diary Day 10 – Hamburg

HamburgNot in a good mood today, the ankle is pissing me off and the codeine has worn off severely, have made the decision to drink instead of drug the pain away thanks to yesterdays shenanigans! Slept in the cot for most of journey from Cologne, im thinking until im better its the only comfortable place to be in the van with my leg up!

Quite a mellow evening apart from my twitter apology from Rory for calling me a bitch and the gig in which we changed up the set a little and got another killer reaction from the crowd. Its mad fun playing for Shikari fans their well up for new music the merch is selling and everybody’s happy at the end of the night! I would have liked to go out and explore what this city had to offer but walking isnt the easiest right now and i have to be able to jump around for half an hour every evening onstage which means foot up whenever im off..HamburgCrowd @ Musichalle

Tour Diary – Day 7, Bochum

Leon in Second SonIts a beautiful day here in Bochum, we’ve all just arrived at the club  Zeche after a lovely morning buying crap in the small city centre of Bochum, big up to the first Starbucks of the tour, bliss!

Im sat back stage whilst Enter are sound-checking my favourite song Juggernaut, i keep waking up singing this bitch seriously the choon is the shizzle! Has also been first day with the Shikari crew after our riot bonding sesh in Brussels, has been some jokes this afternoon i tell thee.Anyways here goes tour diary day 7, which by the way was another day off here in the bountiful Bochum!

After an amazing day n night in Brussels (where im sure the ankle first began to hurt) we headed on over the border to Bochum, which we all thought was in Poland but is actually in Germany, go figure genius’s! On route we watched Chopper as we finally had the dvd player working, all it took was a little slap and a poke from Timmy two dinners, he the man!

So Bochum….is interesting, our first experience of a Formula One hotel aka swingers town! This hotel was my worst nightmare for real, bunk beds, communal toilets (VD’S) and showers (verruca’s), with red and green lights over head…like that was suppose to be cute, in my first 30 mins in the hotel i seen 4 men roaming the corridor in their undies, very tight white undies and they weren’t even fit!!

However fate didnt have it that way instead we are in Belguim a day early, shacked up at an Etap hotel near an airport after ooo maybe 5 hours or more driving in the van with a dvd player THAT DOESN’T WORK! (Nice one Tiger Tours).

Enter Shikari – Antwerpen

Probably the best themed song for the day so far. Yes we are in Antwerp and about to kick off our two weeks on the Enter Shikari support. So please enjoy the new single from the headliners taken from their brand new album Common Dreads, this is ‘Antwerpen‘ which if you like you can download for free at their website!!


Enter Shikari – Sorry your not a winner!

Rock the fook out people its the glorious weekend, 7 days since i broke my 9 month drought and 30 days til The Qemists Live begin our support slot on the Enter Shikari European tour. I think this song for the day is more than appropriate cause i am really sorry if your not a winner!

Peace n Love… The Jenna Ral G
