tomorrow night i’m seeing a man who without Fawn Spots wouldn’t exist. so that’s pretty good
so, this is permanence.
twenty four hours.
Terror unendingly renews with advancing age. Without end, it returns us to the beginning. The beginning that I glimpse on the edge of the grave is the pig in me which neither death nor insult can kill. Terror on the edge of the grave is divine and I sink into the terror whose child I am.
Fine art of original sin.

First and foremost the two gems that made the trip possible at all:
Richard Foster of Incendiary is truly an inspiration to everybody!
Chris Botham drove us round and has a nice beard. There’s a photo of it on instagram somewhere.
We met so many great great people. THANKS. The Netherlands rules.
David Fagan - Rats on Rafts rule; Kapsalon has genuinely changed our lives.
Peter Taylor - if all your nights are like that then you are winning
Peter Burr showed this amazing performance / movie before we played and it was frankly atonishing
WORLD SKATE CENTRE, DEN BOSCH
Bas Heijmans - what a great guy, and he looks like Mikal Cronin and is a solid promoter
Nick Van De Vaart - thanks for letting us be loud at OT301, such a great space.
Freek - thanks for letting us eat capsalon on your floor.
Koen - it was great to hang out!
There’s this video of us playing
Ike & Reuben - you have a record that can have 81 front covers, for that you are winners, but you are also super guys and made us feel so welcome.
Sound and light people at all venues - rather ignorantly I can’t remember all your names but you did a really great job and thank you for actually having read our tech specs when we turned up and for being cool about us not having a bass player.
Thanks to the Dutch government for giving your people money to help put on shows etc… UK government go fuck yourself, you are rubbish.
