Tilburgse noise-artiest begint Europese tour
De Tilburgse noise-artiest Wouter Jaspers startte deze maand een Europese tour met zijn solo-project Franz Fjödor. Hij hield een blog bij over zijn optredens in Zwitserland, Oostenrijk en Slowakije. Momenteel is hij even terug in Nederland voor een rustpauze, om vervolgens zijn tour in Rusland weer voort te zetten. Lees hier een stukje van zij blog, een gedetailleerd dagboek vol foto's en gekke verhalen. Wil je meer lezen?

As I told in my former blog it was in the "junkie" part of town. The girl in the museum was exxagerating a bit about the shittyness. I found it very nice; the people, the space, the food, the sound and the beer, which was a strange Swiss brand called Egger Albertus, to get a better look scroll down for a picture. Another surprise was the fact that R3S3T had a cuckoo's clock. I've been in Switzerland for over a day and this was the first one I saw. The guy who runs R3S3T is Matu, who also has a label called Everestrecords, with some fine releases on it. Check out BlindeKinder, great sounds! After my main show (which went quite well) I spinned some Dutch tunes and Russian 8 bit techno. Matu's dog was also present at the show and he barked serveral times which was amplified through my equipment, that gave the show an extra dimension, something alive instead of the drony unearthy kinda sounds. After the show I packed my stuff and went to bed quite soon because this morning I had to get up to fucking early to catch the train to Zürich, to travel by plane to Vienna. I felt very bad when I got up, totally hangovered, but I had to go... At the moment I arrived at the trainstation I found out that I had forgotten all my notes and digital tickets, so I had to log on to my computer before I could go on with travelling. And that before 6 in the morning... Below you can see a picture of me at 6 in the morning. Trust me friends, it was as worse as it looks. I arrived on time at the airport, checking in went quite smooth, but the people at customs were a pain in the ass. It took them over an hour and I even didn't have drugs on me. I had to unpack everything I had with me, they triple x-rayed my equipment and asked me what I was planning to do with the cd's I had with me. I said I was planning on giving them away, so I gave both a cd and asked if I could go soon, because I was almost missing my plane. After the securitycheck a woman from the airport brought me to my gate by golfkart, because else I would have missed my flight for sure. This experience was rock 'n roll, everyone was looking at us racing through the airportbuilding, it was also really funny, because the woman had very long blonde curly hair which she swept in my face all the time to get it out of her eyes. I got the flight on time and it was good to have an hour of rest in the plane. I booked my flight at Air Berlin, but I flew with Air NIKI, the airliner of Niki Lauda, the famous racedriver. And everything about this company is ugly: the logo, he slogan,the planes, the stewards, the coffeecups, everything. Jörg overhere in Vienna says that Niki is a greedy bastard, judge yourself. Well, now I'm talking about Vienna... Vienna is cool, after landing on the airport I travelled to Subterrarium where Jörg, Bernard and the others were waiting for me. We just had lunch and I'm going to sleep a little bit before tonight. I think it will be cool, the weather is a bit nasty so I hope people will show up, but that will be cool I suppose. Auf wederschnitzel.
