Hate Crew tour 1988

This is a piece I wrote about the tour I did for/with ‘Hate Crew’ (see: Brob’s tours). It was intended for my zine Tilt! but somehow never made it to that… Some of them were mates/ members of the Smurfpunx-collctive so it was only obvious that I helped them out, ‘specially since my own band ‘Repulsives’ had split up. Duco had left the band just before the tour. Along for the ‘ride’, besides the band-members (Kris, Guy, Mone & Guido) and myself, were Smurfpunx Mokka & Snake and Mone’s girlfriend Caro…


Here’s the info-sheet that was written for the tour:

And here are some of the flyers of the tour:

  1. I (vaguely) remember the gig in Düsseldorf… I always went there with mixed feelings; as Brob wrote: loads of junks and boozeheads (not that I didn’t mind a drink back then, hehe) were around that place and you better watched your wallet, on the other hand nice folks like Roz and Spike (a couple where I stayed sometimes when in Düsseldorf) made up for some of the drama.
    The show itself was OK despite the usual bad sound at Kiefernstrasse and I think some very drunk pogo-dancers annoyed me…
