Autumnal Ramblings

09 Sep, 2014

As I wrote a couple of years ago September and October (depending on the weather) is when Big Blaise wanders off into the forest to regenerate somewhat before harvesting his saffron field. This to hopefully explain the lack of Swamp Train gigs during this interval.

Ps. Will try and catch up with this last summer’s activities as soon as possible… :P

Comme j’ai écrit un il ya quelques années septembre et octobre (selon la météo) c’est quand Big Blaise erre dans la forêt pour se régénérer un peu avant de récolter son safran. Ceci pour expliquer le manque de concerts Swamp Train pendant cet intervalle.

Ps. On va essayer d’écrire sûr les activités de cette été dès que possible… :P

Blues Rules Heatwave

14 Jun, 2014

Our Blues Rules weekend began on the Friday before since we were to participate in the festival’s showcase at Lausanne’s Fnac. We got there a 16h as scheduled, but things were running late which was fortunate since we got to see Leo ‘Bud’ Welch who otherwise would have had already finished his set by then. This was cool, although a bit strange, but then again perhaps not. These days the atmosphere of large bookshops tend to be universal in their air conditioned plastic coated cosiness, and I can’t say if the after work shopping crowd – who were most likely unaware of the whats and whys of the event – was much different than what you might find in a similar store in Mississippi. In any case a little stage had been set up and most people were avoiding the nine square meter area directly in front, watching from a safe distance among the DVD aisles.

Even without considering that he had come over the day before Leo ‘Bud’ Welch was pretty amazing. The energy with which he played then and during both his sets on Saturday and Sunday! And he could often be found sitting out at the festival’s paraphernalia stand listening to the other bands, always cheerful, chatting with folks and enjoying it all… like instantaneously transported from someone’s yard party back home. Hats off to you Mr. Welch!

Spring At Last!

28 Apr, 2014

Looks like we could be playing “unplugged” this year, which for us means using small battery powered amps. It has to be said that cigar box guitars don’t quite have the volume of an acoustic guitar.
This is something we have been planning to do since we played during the interview with Sam’s Stag Morgen last year on RaBe

To see what we needed to get a balanced sound we gave it a quick try last Thursday; which fortunately turned out to be a lovely sunny spring day.

—————-

On dirait que nous pourrions de temps en temps jouer “unplugged” cette année, ce qui signifie pour nous avec l’aide de petits amplis à piles. Il faut dire que que nos CBG n’ont pas tout à fait le volume d’une guitare acoustique. Ça tombe bien, c’est quelque chose que nous avons pensé faire depuis que nous avons joué lors de l’interview avec Stag Morgen de Sam de l’année dernière sur RaBe.

Pour voir ce qu’il nous fallait pour obtenir un son équilibré, nous avons fait un essai rapide jeudi dernier; qui heureusement s’est avéré être une belle journée ensoleillée. Enfin un peu de soleil!


Catching some sun

For a first try it worked out better than expected!

To give you a low-fi idea of how the band sounded in comparison to our “norm”, here’s a little video with two excerpts from that session and from the Bleu Café gig earlier this year.

Pour un premier essai, il semble que c’est mieux que prévu! Pour vous donner une idée low-fi de la façon dont le groupe semblait en comparaison à notre “norme”, voici une petite vidéo avec deux extraits de cette session et aussi de la Bleu Café plus tôt cette année.
