Le Luxembourg est bien plus qu’une banque. On y a joué.

Hello Folk’s

Faire un Marseille Luxembourg, un week end de juillet, c’est à peu prêt aussi improbable que de charger une boule à facette géante dans le camion….

Bison Futé a dit “noir”, bah, il s’est pas trop trompé.

(oui Monsieur Pierre Photon c’est à coté de chez toi et on ne s’est pas arrêtés  boire le café…)

Ok, on n’a pas eu que du mauvais, (ce cliché est réalisé par des professionnels, il est fortement conseillé de ne pas les imiter)

puis, dans le camion on s’occupe.

Comme on peut.

Pour ce qui est de l’organisation de la journée, on ne peut pas faire plus simple.

8h de camion, manger, décharger sur la scène ( située sur une place à 200 mètres du camion),

croiser les Boukakes en balances

monter le set pendant leur concert,

s’habiller en bord de scène, (on pourrai le faire un loge, mais on aime bien en bord de scène)

faire un line check en 30 min, respirer un grand coup

et…. envoyer.

1H30 de set version énergie, le même  qu’au Fusion Festival.

Les banques fermées et les gens faisant la fiesta dans les rues, finalement même si on a pas vue grand chose de cette ville dans cette journée “coup de feu”, on a sans doute vu le meilleur 🙂

Une bonne énergie,

un public en masse,

de bonnes sensations,

Ce ne sont pas nos visages en sortie de scène qui diront le contraire.

Bon on pouvait aller se coucher sans croiser Lucien, the Fiesta Maestro, le tout avec YOM le virtuoso sur scène.

Départ à 9h dans la joie.

10h de camion dans la joie.

Sous la protection du grand oracle de la route.

Merci au Festival, le jeu en valait la chandelle. Super accueil, super public.

Next step :

C’est un Mardi, et le Mardi c’est permis

Hallo Wie Geht’s?

nota bene : It’s Fusion Festival 🙂

Good bye Italy, good bye to our slaps, ours shorts, we took the plane to Germany. We lost 15 degrees, but it’s for a good reason: Playing In Fusion Festival !!!

Like every day the hard life of Watcha Clan’s technicians began,

then we took a van to go to Lars, and we arrived on fusion where the hard life of technicians continued.

Third times in this massive / amazing festival, an huge concentration of happy peoples, who are here for fun, fun and fun.

Music 24/24, “hard rock”, “jungle”, “reggae”, “rock” , “electro”, “blues”, “hip hop” , “Caribbean”, “dub step”, “post dub step electro world lounge dirty double whooper”…etc…

Well this is the side of crazy people. But there is an other side: the crew. All is organized, scheduled

Arriving on place for waiting accreditations with our dear friend Simone,

eating, playing ping-pong

unloading the stuff

loading the stuff in a mad max car, going to the stage.

Stage Manager was our dear friend Alex

doing an express sound check and finally Concentrating.

Focusing,

because playing in Fusion Festival is always a big trip. Watcha Clan’s music, “Controlled Chaos in action” can be really showed here.

The audience is massive, the sound is massive, the sound on stage is massive.

Sista voice went higher , jumping on stage was easier, the digital bass went deeper but the time went faster… 60 minutes was like 1 second.

All the tour was compacted in this second….Full of energy , vibration, After the show some of us cried, some couldn’t stopped shouting…

Time to re-re-re-re-reload a mad max car, and went back at home.

Note:  If you can  sleep like this without drug or alcohol , it’s that you did a good tour!

Thanx to all our friends we met there… Long Life to Fusion Festival
After an 2 hours short sleep, we took the plane to Nice where Fred and Soupa ju  came with the van to pick us!

So happy to come back at home!

The happiness was short…

Everybody was safe…not our old loved van… 🙂

Next Step Luxembourg this Saturday!

A ciao !!!


Last part : From Roma to Napoli, where can you find the best pizza?

Ciao Folk’s !

The title  is designed to attract readers, we can’t response to this question in this post … (wondering why?… ask to the Sopranos !)

After a long road from Lecce, refugees were in Roma!

Roma, the amazing town, old buildings mixing with new ones, in front of a big tourist wave!

First part of our trip was a real demonstration of Dolce vita…

Night walk

Day walk

Meetings with old friends,

and new one…

Well the second part of our trip was a real demonstration of south schedule 🙂

The technical side was not as fun that the artist’s side 🙂

But Watcha Clan is a team and the border between the two sides is thin…

Well while we were waiting ( waiting is the official musician  sport  when they are touring in south !)

We could see an other traditional activity. The cops took the measurement of the stage  (Remember Palermo ! https://watchaclan.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/palermos-rules/)

This time, it was good !

The third part of our trip was the concert… and as every time… the best part !

Interview

Focuse

and Stage…

Even if some days are long… the concert in front of  audience is like a present…

Playing is the most important

and doing shopping too

26th of June:
Going straight to Napoli by train.
Travelling by train it’s cool!
No trolley at  the train station it’s … less cool 🙂
Well we arrived in front of the main door of where we were supposed to play.
You saw the door you can imagine the rest ! bim 🙂
Castel Nuovo… welome inside
Good idea to put a stage in this old and big place , thanx Fabrice 🙂
the sound check could began , with a good technical crew,
All went fast, and we could take the time to play new stuff in this inspiring place…
But Napolitans are music lovers so we had to go on stage !
The sound of the place was great, and the acoustics like Eli ,
Or the Quinto Regimiento  duet
sounded really nice!
This is the end of the Italian tour  😦
But the end was good in this popular typical  restaurant !
No time to be sad ! From Palermo to Lecce , from Lecce to Roma , from Roma to Napoli we met lovely people, nice audience and good food…so what else !!!!
Ciao a tutti 🙂
Tomorrow we change the country : GERMANY for the Fusion Festival it’s  never over !!!!

Lecce, theater experience !

Ciao a tutti !

We are in Italy.

Before starting this blog, let’s have a summary of the last days.

The day after we  played for the “fête de la musique”, we said goodbye to our driver, who let us at  Bâle Airport.

We wait for the plane…

We wait in the plane

and finally arrive the 22nd of June in Napoli. We went through the streets of this amazing town

and found a good restaurant where Seb could find the biggest Calzone of the world 🙂

23rd of june: 9 a.m.

We took the tube to go to rent the van. We could appreciate the driving facilities of Napolitans and finally found a way to the autostrada . The road to Lecce was… long

So long…

and hot…

Well, even if the travel was a bit long, we found in Lecce a beautiful theater with the Mario’s super technical team

And one of the best catering of all the time…

So all became easy 🙂

A « bare foot » sound check

with the hot hot weather…

We should played at 8, we started at 9.45 !

So… a long wait, in the back stage

long…

in the venue

Mario gave us the top , and we went up to the stage,

First time in Lecce in front of listening audience. We played in a cool atmosphere, maybe  in a « theatrical » way , cause of the stage…

A full concert, that we finished at midnight 🙂

Thanx to all the Lecce crew , we hope to see you soon 🙂

24rd of June (today):

An Other traveling day after a little walk in Lecce old town

we are now in Roma!!!

the Italian trip still goes on, see you tomorrow the 25th of June @Pigneto Spazioaperto for Suona francese – Festival di Musica


La Fête de la Musique loin de Patrick Sébastien

Hello Folk’s!

Le 21 juin, c’était la fête de la musique, même que nos amis technos ont eu en cadeau de beaux talkie-walkie !

21 juin Fête de la route avec 6h de camion jusqu’à Audincourt,

avec au passage le retour de Fred  en main forte (Cf German tour)

21 juin, fête des bouchons

21 juin, jour le plus long de l’année, surtout à la gare Auxon , où d’après Nassim le temps passe quand même super doucement.

(On notera la joie de Nassim après 3h de solitude seul )

A peine arrivés, on a sauté  du camion à la scène pour les balances, on prend les mêmes et on recommence 🙂

Martin qui fait semblant,

Suprem entrain de poster sur Face book

Nassim en mode moustache Zappa

Sista Ka’s messaging

Belle scène, beau lieu, beau plateau avec Babylon Circus et Maniac X,. L’espace d’un instant, l’idée de rater Patrick Sebastien sur le Vieux port avec Adamo nous apparaissait moins insurmontable

20h30 fin des balances:

21h30 fin du concert…. 😦

60 minutes tout à l’énergie, devant un public de folie… Merci au Festival Rencontres et Racines!

On se languis de voir les photos 🙂

D’ailleurs prendre en photo une photo c’est en mise en abyme mais prendre une photo de celui qui prend la photo de celui qui a pris la photo c’est quoi?

Ou alors prendre en photo le type qui prend la photo de celui qui prend la photo de celui qui a pris la photo..

Tout ça pour en arriver là , un gros Big up a Fred qui dès le lendemain, après une petite lecture du journal

nous à déposé à Bâle, pour qu’on aille directos à Naples 🙂

Ce soir, Samedi 22 juin nous sommes donc à Naples, et we will prendre a van to go to Lecce tomorrow parce que nous will play there… My god the blog is turning in the English Version  for the Lecce , Napoli, Roma , and Fusion Festival !!!!!

See you soon 🙂


First time in Munich, ja genau!

Ach so!!!

The 13rd of June, all the team walked into the Munich streets.

the day before, the plane tried to destroy the Suprem Clem’s desk ,

But, this time, the flight case was enough strong :).

After this « tiny stress », we went to the Muffatwerk, to see our friends playing :

*Ok the picture is poor… Can you recognize them?  A surprise for the first who find the Band name  🙂

Ach so, 13rd of June, all the team went to the Muffatwerk, by the green side of the street,

This time we had a stage, ( 🙂 Palermo )

Mister Martin was ready,

Mister Seb was ready too,

The first band was Epsylone, for a good Hip Hop set

At the same time, in the dressing room… Jammin’

Until the two super schedule men gave us the top

Ach so!

The first time we played in Munich. Between the audience and us : Happiness !

They asked a second encore, so, Sista Ka and Nassim went to the stage to make a Quinto Regimiento Duet:

Thanx Munich, we loved to play in this crazy atmosphere !

Next step: the 21st @ Audincourt and after Italy again, and at the end of the month FUSION FESTIVAL 🙂
