A very Supertzar Hallowe’en

Had a great Supertzar weekend! Friday there was a practice in a new room in our old jam studio, for some reason the guitars, drums and vocals sound great in this space, we should use it as much as possible from now on.

Saturday I did a bunch of blog-related stuff all day, and in the evening went off to buy plastic fangs, a cape, and black wristbands so that I could be back in black for the Supertzar “To Hallowe’en We Go” horror gig with Metal Karmah (actually, they pulled out at the last minute, only to be replaced at the last minute by Swift Knife), Misfits Ramones and Supertzar. Awesome!

It was my first gig as a concert MC, I did so-so. Swift Knife were pretty good, kind of poppy, a bit Bryan Adams-y, and they built up nicely in terms of tempo and velocity. Good one, guys. Wouldn’t play “one more”, though, but I admire them for sticking to only originals and not doing any covers. Misfits Ramones paid tribute to the occasion by playing a bunch of Misfits songs, including (of course) “Hallowe’en”. I sang part of that with them, as well as “Astro Zombies”. Great, great, great.

For our gig, I came out in full make-up (darkened eye sockets, pointed eyebrows, and extended dark sideburns), with my fangs and my cape. Bluarrrghhhhh!!! Great, great, great, great fun! Ant wore a witches hat from Daiso, and James had fake fangs too, while Val got a temporary tattoo on his face, ha ha. Joe from London came out, as did a bunch of our fans, we rocked the place to the ground. Our two originals, “To Hell We Go” and “Blood Horizon” also came off very well.

The full concert can be at my Supertzar video page.

These are our new original songs:

Friday night, Zen was invited to an inpromptu Hallowe’en party in the function room of our condominium place. Some western families organised it, and even came around trick-or-treating (Naoko wasn’t prepared, so she handed over all of the candies that we had on hand, about 20 pieces of hard candy). Zen played until 9:00, when he came home exhausted, too tired to even move, and went straight to sleep. Here are some pictures:

BLUARGHHHH!!!!

Finally, here it is, the Misfits Hallowe’en – enjoy.
