From Aural Innovations #24 (July 2003)
This was the opening night of the Copenhagen Beat Packing District club in Vesterbro. It is a small place (about 200 people) in an old storage warehouse in the old pier area of Copenhagen. It was not too difficult to find for me or everyone else as it was packed. I arrived early and hung out with the band for a couple of hours. They had just returned the day before from playing 8 concerts in Germany with the Finnish band, Sweatmaster. They said it went extremely well. They will have a mini-LP coming out after the summer with all cover songs. Guf just released another solo LP (limited to 200 copies) of material recorded many years back.
It had been less than a month since their last Copenhagen gig but the new CD was out and the town has been littered with posters for the CD. It turns out to have paid off as they have sold 1000 in Denmark in just over a month, which is incredible for an underground Danish band. Anyway, the band have not mixed up their set much and stick to what they know and do best, opening with "Honeydripper" and "What A Burn". The first single from the LP, "Disconnected" was next and then the excellent "Drowning Man". I was hoping they would play "Volcano" but they donít play this one often. It was great to hear the cover of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. This is a cool acid jam. Very heavy. The band got called back for an encore and played "Nobody Spoils My Fun", but at the end they tacked on a bit of "Itís A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock and Roll", by AC/DC. The band did not really want to play more but came out and played the Stooges song, "I Want Some" and trashed the stage and drums and split. The people loved it!!!!!!
Set List: Honeydripper, What a Burn, Disconnected, Drowning Man, Living a Dream, Double Six, Donít look Back, Pandora, A Child of a few hours is burning to Death, Got my Flash on You, Money for Soul, Rollercoaster, Nobody Spoils my Fun>Itís along way to the Top, I want some
