This was one of the rare occasions that ØSC decided to take an opening slot. Due to the improvised nature of the music and that it takes some time for us to warm up (and we prefer to play for 2-3hrs), we rarely except offers to open shows. Siena Root have been our friends for many years and former and current members have also played with us live and in the studio, so when Anders asked us to play, I accepted. It was really shit weather outside, with a light rain when Sabine and I loaded up my Christiania bike with the gear and headed off for the club. The band I had assembled for the night, were mostly there already as well as Anders, the local promoter and his assistant, Rhona. The mood was good but we were a bit wet!
The guys in Siena Root were due to arrive about 18:30 and we had decided to share the backline to make everything go a bit faster on this Tuesday night. I was not sure how many people would come out. We had some food, set up our small merch stand, and got some of the synths ready and that was all we could do before they arrived. They did, we greeted each other and they got down to business quickly and all was set up and people were just hanging out until the show started.
