Greetings once again friends and fallacies,
Dani here, riddled with Seasonal Affective Disorder. For, despite the gothic ambience of drizzling rain and wind lashing about the backdrop of the Suffolk countryside, I would die for a tropical day sat in the shade of palm tree about now, Midnight-hogging Vampire Overlord or not. The weather is miserable and cold. My Mother came back from India to two foot of snow, the colour of lightly cooked steak to a house so cold you could ice your own drinks with spit. Providing that you were drinking vodka. Where the Hell is the British Springtime, complete with fresh fields abrim with yellow Daffodils and gamboling lambs, the heady perfumes of nature in the air and a glow in the hearts of every living Englishman?
Well, after the disaster that was the US tour cancellation (which still weighs incredibly heavy on the mind, adding to the depressing weather front), at least we have the warmer climes of South America, Asia and Australia to look forward to, and a whole bunch of people who've never see the band perform before to impress. This will be quite like being dropped in at the deep end for Lindsay our current keyboardist/backing singer, who will suddenly appreciate the sudden chaos, cause and colour of these forthcoming Cradle Of Filth shows. I know both South American and Australian crowds are absolutely rabid, but it will definitely be interesting to see the reaction of our fans in Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea in comparison. After all, I expect COF fans to be pretty mental the world over! Paul, Martin, James, Daniel, Lindsay and myself are all really really looking forward to it.
And the shows.
Didn't being banned in China come as some big surprise?! What the Hell was that all about? Apparently the permits had already been granted; signed, sealed, delivered and the shows organised, then suddenly a complete U-turn on the decision from the appropriate authorities (immigration are not my favourite suitors at the moment, as you can imagine). I also used to think 'Big In Japan' was a popular distinction, not 'Banned In China', which is growing on me like a Shiitake mushroom.
