My elder daughter plays bass in a band... and they have just won the Bavarian Music Lion Newcomer 2009 award!!
Here they are:
A Neutron as proud as a very proud thing.
So we went to Berlin to take part in the awards. Great evening... red carpets, TV cameras everywhere, good food, good drink (FREE!!!) and good music.
Then next day we did some sightseeing in Berlin.
It's a marvellous city Berlin but they still have this left over from the DDR days...it gave me the creeps the first time I was in Berlin in 1978 and it seems it still gives me the creeps now. There's something insecty, soviety about it - I had the feeling that there was someone behind every facet watching you with binoculars...
then you can get some of this...
and the world is new!
