The wind in Koper chilled us to the marrow but in the evening it was our chance for payback. It was one of our best gigs of the tour. And we finished it off in the perfect rock‘n’roll manner with “Na Soncu”. After the concert we took time to hang around with our fans and partied till the early morning hours. The after-party took place in Ljubljana's Orto Bar. We wish to point out the most important part of our team, the Siddharta Crew (Duši, Bobi, Kraški, Furi, Darjan, Pero, Vido, Grant). Withouth these guys the band couldn’t work as well as it does. They’re the ones who make sure our equipment is taken care of while on stage and off it, as well as the sound and the lights. We’re also very good friends, just like a big happy family and we have lots of fun and laughter together! So guys, much RESPECT to you! And in the meantime we’re already getting ready for the next gig…
Saturday’s gig took place in Metlika. We hadn’t played there for quite a while. It was vintage time and we were offered to taste the new wine and homemade gin and schnapps. The food was home cooked too. We had a great time during dinner, the gig was awesome and so was the time afterwards. The crowd was amazing but that was no longer an exception! We had some friends from Novo mesto there as well. On the way back we stopped by the “Patriot” club in Novo mesto. There we ran into our support act Leaf Fat and had fun with our crew, who take great care of us and our equipment. Slowly we headed back home. In Ljubljana we unloaded the equipment, said goodbye to the driver, shook hands and finally went home to bed…
Friday's was an open-type concert, which all our closest and most loyal fans from Slovenia and even Croatia were able to attend. One could feel the energy literally lifting us all up to the sky.
The pure rock ‘n’ roll concert was followed by spending time with fans and taking photos with them. Amongst the fans we also noticed those who won their concert tickets in a competition. After the short party we packed up and headed for the bus which took us safely back to Ljubljana. Saturday’s gig in Tolmin was waiting.
Let us tell you a little secret. It isn’t always all quiet and sleepy on the bus either. Many times we fool around and have fun all the way to the town of performance. Even in the early morning hours when we can hardly wait to get some sleep filled with unusual dreams, we cannot but say a word or two about the concert and the time spent with fans afterwards. Let the place rumble!!!
As you probably already know by now, Siddharta has again been nominated for MTV Best Adriatic Act Award. In the company of other nominees it is competing for the statue that represents confirmation of good work in the music field and is, consecutively, being inspired for future achievements. Last year the band won the statue with your help and thanked for it in a special way with Petrolea album. You can show your support again by voting for your favourite band in the category for Best Adriatic Act category at http://ema.mtvadria.com/site.jhtml.
The video for song Domine was made in less than a month. It was produced by the AVK team. The story was written by Tomi Horvat and Miloš Radosavljevič, who also directed the video. The photography was in the hands of Miloš Srdič and the camera in the hands of Vladan Jankovič. The story can be understood in more ways. Foremost it’s about intertwined destinies. It is about the eternal game of the domination between a man and a woman, about pushing and shoving, about covering and uncovering of our desires. The creators were moving on the edge between the explicit and the hidden deliberately. The coach, superbly portrayed by actor Matija Vastl, is the one who takes it out on one of the athletes (Neža Uršič) during the training. Later the story takes a turn. Is it the vengeance or merely a coincidence? The interpretation is left to the viewers and it probably depends on one’s own preferences.
