Looks like they are sticking with tbe every 5 year release model for the moment. Annoying as this is to us, it's their thing.

Just got back from the Cologne show at the packed King Georg (okay, the place is tiny!)

"Highly entertaining" is the expression I'd use to describe the set. Norman backed up Jad on acoustic guitar for the first third and on drums for the last third. In between, he played a five song set himself, on acoustic guitar and vocals with Jad on the drumkit.

For folks who keep track of these things, Norman played:

It's All In My Mind
You Was Me (by Jonny)
Baby Lee
What Goes On (by the Velvet Underground)
Story Of An Artist (by Daniel Johnston)

a few quick pictures from the gig here: https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=jad ... ke%20caw22 Was too close to get any better shots, but I'm not complaining!

Nice to see Norman, Nadine and a few other familiar faces!

Hey CarstenWohlfeld those are great photos!

I only took a couple on Tuesday night, with my little compact. So enjoyable. Got the record and Norman and Jad kindly signed it too. We had a great evening.
