Juli in Januar

This last weekend the Haddock family visited the Odenwald for my brother-in-law’s birthday party. It was a great party, with lots of good food, lots of kids for the Juniorette to play with, and lashings of beer & wine for the adults. A good time was had by all. So good I was still supping at 5am, which is of course far too late for a gentleman of my age. Consequently I was a tad hungover for the rest of the day.

On the way home to Marburg we stopped off at Mainz for a concert by the band Juli. Their most sucessful hit to date is Perfekte Welle which was released just before the major Tsunami a couple of years ago. Consequently many radio stations stopped playing the song. I really enjoyed the concert and forgot I still had a hangover. Infact by the end of the show it had dissipated completely. Juli play Rock/Pop, which reminds me of the early Nena material. The Juniorette had a great time and was dancing a lot of the time. She definitely likes music with a Rock edge to it.

Are Juli not from Marburg - or is it Gießen? I forget, but it's somewhere up there.
I know that SWR3 seemed to have "Dieses Leben" on their "play every single hour" list last time I was there and I ended up buying the "Neuer Tag" album. And jolly good it is too.
Glad to hear that the juniorette had such a good time and that you're still not too old to get down with the youngsters, daddi-o.
Actually, I really shouldn't mock after a recent discussion I had with someone old enough to drive a car which involved the sentence: "It's The Clash, for God's sake! What do you mean, you've never heard of the Clash?"
I'm not sure whether it means that I'm old, or that I was talking to a musical philistine.

Deepblue - Thanks again, we had a really great time and are looking forward to June! :)

Maribeth - It was a great weekend :)

Christina - Juli are good mix of pop & rock and on stage have a good rapport with the crowd :)

Inactualfact - They are from Gießen which as you know is just down the road from Marburg. So Juli are kind of like the local band.
BTW - You must have been talking to a musical philistine. The kids today eh! :)

I haven't partied until 5am, woken with a hangover closely followed by a rock concert for quite some time, maybe I should get back in the groove, you sound as though you had a pretty good time. hmmm perhaps old age is creeping on!

Some of my best memories started at 5 am.

I've not heard of Juli, but I've not been too wired to the local scene since I've lived here. Now that I am looking abroad, I seem to have found a new respect for things like this, so thanks for pointing me in this direction.
