Tech dude Rob writes from Montreal…
Bonjour du pays que j’aime appeler Canadia.
I think that’s probably enough of my schoolboy French. But when in Quebec …
I like it here, as, it seems, do Soline and Chad, my lighting crew. They seemed noticably perkier than normal when hot girls arrived to help put the rig up this morning. Anyway, so I wanted to send something from this fine country of ice hockey, Feist and Molson Red (although you guys do need to do some work on your airline). So, as usual, I took some pictures in soundcheck in the very red and very pretty Olympia theatre. I probably need to get out more.
End of the waffle, voici les photos.
Tom warms up the piano
Les mains des Tom
Tim’s big red pods. From where the distorted piano sounds emerge
Richard looking rockstar-esque
Tim tinkles the ivories
Tom looking, rather like the guy in Kirsty MacColl’s chip shop, a little like Elvis – which is no bad thing. (Slight poetic license here but I’m sure you get my drift)
Soundman Iain’s business finger. This is all he needs to go one louder
Tim watching out for low flying stuff
Tom’s two Gibson guitars
See how French it is here? Sortie is foreign for NotAusgang. Or Salida.
Et pour finir les pieds des Tim
I’m off to watch the finale of Heroes. I’ve got my fingers in my ears and I’m humming if anyone tries to tell me what happens.
More pictures soon, Rob
