Some cool shaker images:

I went to a Kula Shaker concert. For the second time in my life!

Back in 1999, my back then girlfriend-for-a-very-short-time Franzy mentioned the name Kula Shaker to be a must-see at the ‘Lowlands festival’ that I was going to. And she was right. So very much right. More right than anybody has ever been in my life.
The concert was the best I’ve ever been to. I will never ever forget it. (*knock on wood…*)

Sad thing was that only 1 month after I had seen them (I was still in this haze of ‘wow I found a band I truely love’) the television main news told that they had broken up and quit. 🙁

But this year, after 8 years (10 years after their last, and second, album release) they got together again and released a new album and started a European tour! WIth 1 concert in The Netherlands! In the ‘Melkweg’ concert hall in Amsterdam to be exact. Obviously I went there.

And…. oh my… do I remember again why I was so enchanted 8 years ago… This is truly the best band I’ve ever known.
