        Maybe they’ve found a drummer-cum-tabla player in Nepal and that’s the reason they’ve returned. :D

          @Mark – I was wondering if they might add Vera, Groningen on the 15th, but nothing on Vera’s website as yet. I think they played Vera last time out, and they do seem to alternate – e.g. Köln last time, so Düsseldorf this time; Bremen last time, so Oldenburg this time.

          Also, no Belgian, Lux or Swiss dates as yet. I would expect something will be announced for 15 and/or 16, and 18 and/or 19.

          For now, as much as I’d love a return to Zakk, Düsseldorf, I have my eyes on a little NL tour this time around.

                HRH Psych has been cancelled.

                Ticket-holders are being offered four options: a ticket to one of two other HRH events; a credit worth double the ticket value; a full refund. I took the refund. Just have to wait to see if HRH pay up – they do not have a good reputation.

                  This is really sad news. Tomas has been a a great drummer for the band and I’m really sorry to see him leave. I’m also sad to hear that there may have been uncomfortable disagreements – whether over money or other stuff. When I read the Insta post I immediately got a passive aggressive vibe – a kind of “if you think you can do better somewhere else, good luck” cynicism. I expect we’ll hear more about it in the days to come.

                  The India tour is a bit of a surprise. Given my history with India (I lived there for some years, my wife is Indian, and we have a home there that we visit irregularly), I would love to have heard about this in advance. My hope is that this is something that is already part of or about to feed into new material and inspiration.

                    @suntripper. Many thanks. What a band they were! I just missed out on this QPR show, having been a little too young (though I did see my first concert in 1975 (10cc, front row, Hammersmith Odeon). I had to wait until October 1977 to see Yes for the first time.

                      @ Marc: I loved the first three Monomyth albums (which include Exo), but was not much impressed by the fourth album (Orbis Quadratis). On my first trip to see Motorpsycho in Köln in 2017, I also stopped in Tilberg and Rotterdam to see Monomyth, and they were great.

                          I just picked up the Temple Fang EP – which sounds really good at first listen. Looking forward to seeing them in Hoofddorp next week.

                              I reckon I must have listened to Ancient Astronauts about fifty times by now, and I would just like to say … Yep, fucking awesome. Start to finish – whether it’s the tracks that take me on longer journeys, or the moments that give me the tingles – I just LOVE this album. As a whole it just might be my favourite of the Tomas era.

                                @crosskip – WTF?! Ha ha ha

                                Although I haven’t seen Temple Fang live, I did see that guitarist and the bassist/singer sitting in Vondel Park last May when I was visiting Amsterdam on my way back from seeing Motorpsycho in Germany.

                                  Fang Temple by Temple Fang

                                  OK, so this isn’t strictly new, and I mentioned it before, when it came out as a self-released album about this time last year, but since then, the band signed a deal to release the album with Stickman who they saw as a natural fit for them because of Stickman’s work with Motorpsycho.

                                  In a recent interview Temple Fang not only named-checked Motorpsycho and cited Ancient Astronauts as one of their current favourite albums, but also mentioned Tos Nieuwenhuizen, referring to him as “Amsterdam’s tube-amp guru”. So I thought it was time to once again impress just how brilliant this (and their previous Live at Merleyn) album is. Fang Temple is a double album with four 20-minute slow-burn, psychedelic space rock excursions that just blew my socks off.

                                  The band, who hail from the Netherlands, is also playing dates across the country in November and December and based on videos I’ve seen, they’re well worth it if you fancy a jam-heavy psychedelic space out. After I had to cancel my trip to Leuven, rather than discard my Eurostar tickets I rescheduled to coincide with a Temple Fang gig near Amsterdam and I have to say, I have high, high hopes of a good night.
