   SUBWAY TO SALLY - JELLY PLANET
Kulturfabrik - Krefeld (D)
December 27th 2002

Support bands for Subway To Sally will always stay a sort of mysterium for me as for why and how they got the support slot. I've seen STS play with a lot of rather strange support bands and Jelly Planet is yet just another one of them.
Their homepage talks about influences from CAN (who?), American 60's and 70's West Coast bands and a little British Pop. The Doors and The Who are also mentioned. I do not really want to say something bad about them, they might be good at what they do but I certainly do not understand them. Neither did the audience. Only a few people moved to the weird sound (use of drugs might be of help in getting into the sound) and the projections on the backdrop gave the band an even more psychedlic touch.
After half an hour the STS fans started their "Blut, Blut, Räuber saufen Blut" singalong and after 45 minutes without a single announcement the band finally left the stage.

And then the Subway To Sally started off with a big bang from the pyros! Opener was "Sag Dem Teufel" in the new version - which isn't all too new anymore though ;) I still don't like it so this wasn't the best start for me. For those who don't know the new version: it's hard to describe it but they tried to adapt it to their newer sound while the song completely lost its spirit through that. A few surprises concerning the look of the band: most members lost their hair in one way or another. While Ingo and David now have short haircuts and their hair dyed blonde Bodenski and Silvio only got their long hair cut shorter. The band also has new stagewear. No dresses and skirts anymore, they wear trousers again. Other than that no real surprises. Ingo still keeps staying somewhere in the back, Bodenski still likes to show some funny dance steps from time to time *g* and Simon will never loose his wanna-be-evil-look ;) (I'm sure those who have seen STS before will understand). "Kruzifix" was also presented in a modified version which doesn't sound as bad as "Sag dem Teufel" to my ears. During the short breaks between the songs the fans always started to sing their obviously favourite STS tune "Julia und die Räuber". Personally, I'm fed up with it and I can only suspect how fed up the band must be with it. They're condemned to play that song as long as there is STS I believe; I dare not to think about what would happen if they stopped playing it live. Eric promised they would play it later on in the set and asked for kind help with singing for the track "Kleid aus Rosen" which - of course - was more than welcome as well. That was followed by the obligatory solo from Ingo (why does he not think of another one for a change?) which passed into "Maria". After 1 1/2 hours in total, "Carrickfergus" finally marked the end of the regular set.
Of course we got an encore. STS presented a brand new song ("Falscher Heiland") from their upcoming new album, "Engelskrieger". It's hard to say anything about a song you heard only once live but it's pretty much in the vein of the "Hochzeit" album I'd say. Very catchy and I already love the pre-chorus! During the song "Grabrede" Eric took his essential "bath" in the audience and then the fans finally got their "Julia und die Räuber". Last song was an acoustic version of "Arche" during which a member of the crew surfed over the heads of the audience, standing on the cover of a flightcase! I couldn't believe two hours had already passed and this was the end of another STS show.
