Television Personalities in Cologne

After two support bands the TVPs entered the stage at 11.30 p.m. It was Daniel, Texas Bob, Mike Stone and a for me unknown drummer who wears his sunglasses during the complete set.
The show was very good, much better than I expected. It seems that Daniel was in a good mood. He talked to the audience and made cynical comments. They played approx. 90 minutes and it seemed that they do not had a setlist (just like in the old times). The band worked together as a good team although the gigs were more spontaneously with Jowe and Jeff.

They played many old songs - only one song from the last two albums (All the young children on crack). I did not recognized three of the songs, maybe new material or cover versions I do not know.
Some songs they played (in no particualar order): Stop and smell the roses, If I could write poetry, King and country (great version!), La grande illusion, This angry silence, Bike, I was a mod before you was a mod, Salvador Dali, Little Woody Allen, Silly girl, A picture of Dorian Gray, Look back in anger, Happy all the time, A good and faithful servant...

was Kevin Mann.

Also - Mike Stone played bass in Germany, but was away for the MGMT shows in Norwich and Oxford last week - I took his place.

Don't judge the band on that though. Cologne was a much better performance, in my opinion.

Bollocks!, Bastard dimedozen! apologies for profanities, but for some reason dimedozen doesn't allow me to log in with them, there's a problem with my IP address, and I can't even email them to find out what the problem is, so if any kind soul could share these via megaupload, media fire etc, you'd make this chappy very happy.
