Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Mar 29, 2017

Time for a scene show, but this one's a little different. Instead of covering a period of time or a genre of music, this scene show is all about my favorite band in the world, Fury In The Slaughterhouse.

Now, the Furies broke up in 2008, but reunited in 2016 in honor of their 30th anniversary, recording some new songs, putting together a new Best of, and playing some shows in 2017.

I flew to Germany in 2008 to see the band live for the first time, on their farewell tour, and this year, a bunch of Fury fans donated money to ensure I could fly out to see some of the 2017 reunion shows as well.

I've been writing up my experiences, but I also wanted to do a podcast, not just about that experience, but also about the band themselves, to give people an overview of the band's history, play something from each of their albums, and then play something from each of the band members' side projects.

Listen to the show, get the new Best of, then start buying as much Fury stuff as you can. Only one album, "The Hearing And The Sense Of Balance," is available on US iTunes right now, but it's a start.

There are 6 people in the band: Kai Wingenfelder (lead vocals), Thorsten Wingenfelder (guitar), Christof Stein-Scheider (lead guitar), Christian Decker (bass),  Rainer Schumann (drums) and Gero Drnek (keyboard, guitar, mandolin, a bunch of other things). They currently have a 7th member with them for the tour, Martin Huch (guitar, pedal steel guitar, lap steel guitar, mandolin). Also, there were two other people who were in the band before, Kai Liekenbröcker (keyboard) who left in 1989, and Hannes Schäfer (bass), who left the band in 1996 to become a doctor.

All of the band members are great, and they were nothing but kind to me. Anything I can do to pay the band back in terms of raising awareness is only a small portion of the thanks I owe them.

Here's the setlist, and afterwards, some pictures from the trip. The rest of my writeups should be up in a few days, over at http://devinoch.blogspot.com/ and you can read the longer stuff there.
