Ultimate bash

Five guys, one mission: Do the mash within thirty days! Why thirty days? Because it's the length of my vacations in Brazil. We just had one rehearsal with all of us and the ar-conditioning was broken. So we had only this sauna-rehearsal to get ready for this gig, but was fun anyway. :P

Last time that we, The Monster Mash, performed live was in August 2007 and we never thought we would play again. Fortunately, we have achieved this dream and now the band plunges into another hibernation because not only I left the country but also Dadau, our lead singer, is going to Australia and Amine, our makeup artist, is going to England. Only time will tell whether there will be a reunion. For now, we keep the memories. Besides, Monster Mash without me and Dadau is like Metallica without James and Kirk. Hehehe.

For this gig there were few changes on the setlist: song "witch hunt" was removed and two songs were added: "hybrid moments" and "some kinda hate". My t-shirt was so cool - note on the photo that it encloses the name of the band and a skull. The makeup has also slightly changed. It was supposed to make us look as the undead but it rather made us look as Pandas. More luck next time. Amine was late anyway!!

I would like to thank all my friends who joined the gig and specially Leandro and Heleno who accepted my invitation to come up on stage and sing along the song "die die my darling". It kicks ass.

Below, a video of the song "Hate the living, love the dead".

I like the backing vocal line, one of my favourite songs.

"Put me together with the bodies of the dead, and I will wait for life and breath again... Scalpels, scissors, stitches, skin. Wake this eternal sleep she's in. And we'll breed for you, on your command ... "
