they are indeed a very great jam band Smiley-midget heard them quite a few times! they'll also play at "Ildfestregatta" in Silkeborg in august (Danish fireworks championship)

while we're at the jam bands, DADycoes also put on a great show in Nibe Smiley-midget (I'll give you the setlist when I have the time, but it included Lawrence of suburbia and Scare Yourself as well as quite a few of the old classics :))

Fjends... Fjends... Thats in the middle of Jutland, right? My grandparents were inhabitants in the small village Daugbjerg and I went there a couple of times a year. Daugbjerg is in Fjends Kommune right?
Ive spent a lot of time in Hjerm, Daugbjerg and Sjørup Smiley Mostly Daubgjerg. But also a bit in Stoholm and other surrounding cities like that.

If Fjends is that, then its a beautifull place and people should go Smiley-wink

Thats funny, guys Smiley

Ive of course been to the Mønsted Kalkgruber once or twice. But Daugbjerg Kalkgruber was my homeground. My grandparents neighbough, Johanne, used to own the Daugbjerg Kalkgruber, so my cousin and I used to "work" there - run around in the 'caves' and replace the candles and that way knew the caves really well.
It rocked.
So did Jens Langkniv and Daugbjerg Dås with all the trolls and stuff, hehe.
My grandfather used to take me to the heath nearby, we'd walk and look for adders/snakes and stuff. One time we found the white tail of a rabbit Smiley-wink

I really like that part of Denmark. It will always be home.

hehe, yep... and I'm sure partying in Fjends (the big city) is WAY more dangerous than going out in Copenhagen (are there even places to party in that small village?) Smiley-wink
