Anvil at L'Amour (part 1)
- OK - so, Anvil came down for a few shows this
past weekend.<br><br>Unfortunately, I was only able to
make one of the three.<br><br>The first night, they
played at Castle Heights in Jackson Heights. I have no
idea how the show went - I only got to talk to Lips
for a minute or so at the show I went to. The third
night, they were supposed to play the Voodoo Lounge in
Queens - but, due to the heavy snowfall - the show was
cancelled. I'd also be curious to know how their show went
in Batavia....<br><br>Anyway - I was there, with my
buddy Rob, at the L'Amour show in Brooklyn. I read
somewhere that, although Anvil was never really popular in
the U.S., they were still the first all-original band
to ever play L'Amour - one of the most famous of all
heavy-metal clubs in the States.<br><br>We missed the opening
band, The Nightmare Asylum. The first band we caught -
Ushurak - weren't bad - but it looked as if they saw
'This is Spinal Tap', thought it was serious, and it
used it as a guide as to how to be in a band. I mean -
the first time the guitarist fell off the stage it
was funny - the second time it was either
side-splittingly funny, or just pathetic. But, when they were
playing they weren't half bad.<br><br>The second band we
caught was Etheria. A very good band with a very strong
Queensryche influence. If you're into the whole prog-metal
Queensryche/Dream Theatre/Fates Warning/Savatage thing, one could
do worse than checking them out.<br><br>Then came
the speed-metal masters - Anvil. <br><br>Something
was going on before the show started. I saw Robb
looking not too happy - talking to someone who worked at
the club, he was running back & forth between the
front & back of the club. I don't know what was going
on - but eventually the mighty force took the stage.

This is one of the first message that LIPS wrote to this board...Can
I return the question? Where are you LIPS? It's not because we want
you to answer to all little crazy messages we write, it's because in
my case: I worry.
Did he break his leg, his arm (No!!)? I don't even want to know about
what you do or think.....Just want to know that you're fine, if you
are okay and if Anvil still exist.
I've never heard about The Foundation's gig...I imagine all kind of
bad thing. Does he have a pneumonia? (secondary smoke yunno, hmmmm...)
A cold maybe? We all know that you work hard, but Dan wrote a message
to remind you some festivals...Why don't you react? Are you bored of
your own fanclub, man?
I would like to have your opinion on this Def Leppard's commercial
song...Do you hear the "Back in Black" riff and the "Rock of ages"
melody? "Am I going insane"?
Also, I would appreciate IF you could take a look at
www.anvil.here.ws and that you tell me if you find the colors
too "feminin". And, if it is....suggest me some ideas, it's easy to
You know that I'm really worry about you, dood? A truck accident? I
don't know cos you don't give any news...You were all friendly
posting here, and then you stopped suddenly. Did we offend you or
something like that?
