Review by Jan Lissens, the living proof that creative technical writers do exist!

"Den Hemel" literally means "Heaven" and, last saturday, for a large number of enthusiastic Monkipunkers it was. I was saddened by the fact that it was, for me at least, the last gig I'd see until the next European tour, but fortunately, Boo! obliged by making it last.

The travelling trio were as good as ever, and they played a number of songs I hadn't heard on a gig for quite some time ("Franki", "Hosanna" and "OO AA"). "OO AA", by the way is the song that my five-year old refers to as "aapmuziekje" which translates as "monki music". Since it comes out of the mouth of the proverbial babe, I guess whoever chose the name of the music, chose it well.

The Boo! entourage (if you can call Marcel an entourage) was, as always, quite busy before the show, setting down water and beer bottles, sticking playlists to any odd place and so on. Actually, sticking playlists to any odd place is something Marcel apparently quite enjoyed, since he could not stop and even did it during the show. My advice would be: if you stick a playlist to the floor, use LARGE characters ;-). I also wondered where I saw his pair of jeans before, and then it hit me (the thought, not the jeans): in about every Boo! gig I ever saw. Must be his lucky pair.

The audience was behaving in a very odd manner. The front half of the audience, which naturally included me (I'm one of those usually glued to the stage) was dancing and rocking and thoroughly enjoying themselves, while the back half was just standing there, hardly moving, in a sort of mildly amused haze. I strongly suspect the owners of "Den Hemel" of having mistaken floor wax for glue while buffing the back half of the room.
