At 7 in the morning we left Cesis, Questions had partied through the night and were almost destroyed, but the Germans got their few valuable hours of sleep and were more or less willing to take the Ford Transit safely to Warsaw. Two borders and 3/4s of Poland had to be crossed. 18 hours, 15 Snickers, 8 canned Latte Macchiatos, 3 energy drinks, 2 bags of chips and one refuel later, we rolled onto an industrial yard where the show was supposed to take place. There we waited for Whitey from "Nothing Between Us" from Warsaw, with whom we played in Berlin last Winter.
Three days before the show the former venue had cancelled and the location had been changed three times. Now it would take place in a rehearsal room. Pavel, drummer for "Nothing Between Us" apologized for at least five times, although it's a widely known fact that for money UAS will play everywhere, even in rehearsal rooms. So we told him to relax. The size was perfect. The only problem was that even before the show the room had already a humidity of 120%. There was a huge variety of food which made even the last critics happy and content with the situation. Pavel told us about his worries that it was hard for him to go to Germany all the time to steal cars and cut asparagus, to pay off his recently acquired flat in Warsaw. The first band, the local support played a set of about 8 Minutes in front of 12 people. Not many more showed up when we started to play but it didn't matter. The less people in front of us means more space for us. So we started to use all the remaining space and after the intro sweat was dripping from the walls.
Questions also did an interesting shows. The intimate atmosphere encouraged their will to experiment and they even played a new song. Questions were somewhat depressed at the time, as their backdrop had disappeared. The same backdrop the Hardcore God himself handed to Edu, the singer, on the holy mountain 15 years ago or something like that. To make matters worse, they still thought we had something to do with the disappearance, because our opinion on bands with backdrops is rather negative, which they knew. Perhaps due to the fact that on the first UAS Backdrop, which Shitboy did himself in a greenhouse you could read "United And Stong". Or that today bands order their 4x6m backdrops before they've played any show at all. Questions, however, are undoubtedly one of the few bands that deserve a backdrop, just to make this clear! After the show, not much time was left. The equipment was thrown into the van and we went on our longest ride: Warsaw - Cluj Napoca in Romania.
