Finally I decided to upload my pictures of Maximo Park's performance at the Hurricane festival in Germany, despite the bad quality.To anyone who can watch the franco-german channel arte.: A part of Maximo Park's performance will be broadcasted during the Hurricane special on 27th July, 11.20 pm (that's the German time GMT +1!!!).

Nice pics. you must have been fairly near the front, too. It's nice to see the 'This is Rude' T-shirt getting an airing...
I wish I could watch that special on German TV! Curse my living in England...

21st Jul 2006, 12:33

clara says:

Lovely pix-I like the black and white theme.But you can watch the
special online,Bound.Just access
Arte on Google,nearer the time,then you'll know where the site is first.

21st Jul 2006, 13:59

heArtbeAt says:

Cool! I'll watch it! I guess that it'll also be at 11.20p.m. in Belgium. Didn't have to change the time on my watch last time I went to Berlin XD

21st Jul 2006, 14:37

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Ta, Clar, but I wont be able to watch online 'cos my stupid band has a stupid gig that night. (probably the wrong attitude...)

22nd Jul 2006, 09:23

clara says:

Depends if they keep the show online for a few days afterwards,Bound,you never know,might be possible to watch it then.

22nd Jul 2006, 09:32

clara says:

Wow,it's quiet on here lately.Anyone got any new pix/interesting topics?

27th Jul 2006, 20:38

clara says:

I've been on Arte TV site,trying to play the video of Maximo on the Hurricane Festival artists list,
without success.Has anyone else tried on here?

28th Jul 2006, 09:29

caamille says:

I'm french and i saw the video yesterday, I didn't really know Maximo Park and now I'm in love with your music. ;-)

28th Jul 2006, 15:52

clara says:

Can you tell me how to play it,Caamille?

28th Jul 2006, 20:27

hella says:

cool show btw, paul is so sweet, i can't help

29th Jul 2006, 14:09

hella says:

erm ok my post wasn't finished at that point?! that's weird..
anyway i said it's cool that they showed (even thought not complete) 3 songs which was more than they showed from other artists. nice.

(my computer is such a bitch.)

29th Jul 2006, 14:11

clara says:

@Converse
It seems daft that Maximo were on the list of bands on the site,inc. Hard-Fi and the A.Monkeys,yet they have no play link.Any idea why?
@hella
Don't think the edit function's
working on here,still.

29th Jul 2006, 14:23

Joe says:

carla, the edit function is disabled on public moblogs.

29th Jul 2006, 14:28

clara says:

Oh right,Joe,thanks for telling me-
I didn't know that.

29th Jul 2006, 14:44

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Helloooo *echoes*

Anyone there?

Well, if the band would like to post any pics of them recording, it would be very much appreciated. I know they only started today, but hey, I like to pile on the pressure. And I want a finished album on my desk first thing Monday morning! (like they even read the Moblog...)

4th Aug 2006, 12:58

clara says:

Wow that's great news about supporting the Stones. Paul and Jagger onstage together...yes??

4th Aug 2006, 14:47

clara says:

If you're reading this Paul,will you arrange a duet with Mr Jagger?
That would be amazing.

4th Aug 2006, 17:17

anonymous says:

haha yeah i want the album too, i'll give them time to wednesday though because i'm so nice.
a duet with good ol' micky[!].. hm. i don't know. paul has such a great voice, mr jagger's doesn't stand a chance :P

4th Aug 2006, 17:26

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Aww, anon, you're too good to them...:P
Paul and mick, eh? I feel a fanfic coming on...
JOKING!
Even sickos such as I have to draw the line somewhere...
You're right about Paul's voice anon. Mind you, I wonder if the Park will still be going when they're Mick & co.s age...

4th Aug 2006, 18:23

clara says:

Of course they will, Bound.And Paul will look exactly the same as he does now...
A fanfic?Paul and Mick? What?????
@anon
Can you imagine the energy that those two would produce onstage?
Electrifying.
Ooh,please,Paul please do a duet with Sir Mick.

4th Aug 2006, 19:11

clara says:

You never know,you may be in line for a knighthood, if you do.

4th Aug 2006, 20:07

hella says:

*anonymous was me by the way..
haha of course, paul will always look as beautiful as he does now! no matter if he's 27 or 67! .. [ok now that notion is slightly scary i have to admit]
and yes, i could imagine that, would be pretty ace i guess although i'm not a fan of sir mick :P anyway, i have to add, paul is the king of jumps too.
[i'm weird]

4th Aug 2006, 20:14

hella says:

['king of jumps' how wrong does that sound.]

4th Aug 2006, 20:16

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

King of Jumps. Hee hee. It should be the title of the new album.

4th Aug 2006, 20:24

clara says:

No you're not weird, Hella.I'm not really a fan of Sir Mick,but I can see him and Paul doing a great duet together.What do you think?
"Satisfaction," perhaps?

4th Aug 2006, 20:25

clara says:

I'm sure you'd agree with that
choice of title for their duet,Bound.

4th Aug 2006, 20:26

hella says:

new album title? xD haha, great idea. [and the name was mine in fact! woohoo.]
satisfaction? hmmm. i don't want to think about it because then i'd probably feel the need to see it! haha .. no seriously i think they would do a great duet. who knows, one day, when paul's 60 and mick's .. erm.. 132?

4th Aug 2006, 20:28

clara says:

Ha ha very funny,Hella!!But we want to see them duet now,not in
x number of years'time.I think they should seriously consider it.

4th Aug 2006, 20:30

clara says:

What does anyone else on here think?If there's anyone else online, that is.

4th Aug 2006, 20:32

hella says:

me too, we should start a petition, i mean.. we would already have 3 people signing it! that should be enough to convince mr. smith anyway.

4th Aug 2006, 20:32

hella says:

i think we're the only ones online, i feel kind of obsessed haha.

4th Aug 2006, 20:33

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

When I first thought about it, the idea of the Park supporting the Stones it seemed somehow inappropriate...But thinking about it, their work ethics are very similar - they both seem to work really hard (even though the Stones could just retire, they keep bloody going!) And they both have lead singers with amazing stage presence... I'm agreed with you on Satisfaction, Clar, that would be uber awesome.

4th Aug 2006, 20:36

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@ Hella
Well, there's three people here, that's actually pretty good by recent standards.

4th Aug 2006, 20:37

hella says:

you got a point there..

by the way i actually like that there are not too many people here, it can get kind of annoying when there's too many, it's nicer this way. [i think]

4th Aug 2006, 20:39

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Okay, it appears it's just me now. spoke too soon...

4th Aug 2006, 20:41

clara says:

Quite so!Funny you should say that Hella,about a petition,I was going to suggest exactly the same thing, but I thought some other anon.killjoy would come along and put the kibosh on it!!
Ok,Hella,Bound and Clara are in agreement-
anyone else??

4th Aug 2006, 20:41

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Yep yep yep, Hella. Hardcore fans all the way. It's...cosy!

4th Aug 2006, 20:41

clara says:

The very thought of Paul and Sir Mick singing "Satisfaction"....wow

4th Aug 2006, 20:42

clara says:

No,Bound,I didn't mean it like that.

4th Aug 2006, 20:43

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Three person petition. THAT'S what the next album should be called. (I'm actually going to say that about EVERYTHING until the bloody thing comes out...)

4th Aug 2006, 20:43

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Why do you automatically assume I'm thinking dirty thoughts, Clar? Oh..yeah..'cos it's me, 'n I normally am...

4th Aug 2006, 20:45

clara says:

The thing is,I don't want to be critical here,but wouldn't it be a bit like Beauty and the Beast?The stage performance would make up for that,though.

4th Aug 2006, 20:47

clara says:

Um,well,Bound,you said it.

4th Aug 2006, 20:47

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Ahh, well, not all lead singers are as blessed as Smith, my dear. Hot AND uber talented, what are t' odds?...

4th Aug 2006, 20:48

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Hella? Wherefore art thou?

4th Aug 2006, 20:49

clara says:

True,very true.

Where is everyone else on here?Maybe they're on holiday.

4th Aug 2006, 20:50

clara says:

Oh hello Jen!Where is Paul DJing?
Somewhere in London?

4th Aug 2006, 20:51

hella says:

[so many posts in so little time! i feel a little left behind actually]
beauty and the beast, now that made me laugh..
yeah so have 2 great future album titles already, we could also combine them.. like [ok not very creative but never mind] King Of Jumps (Three Person Competition) .. nah, it sounded cooler in my mind.

4th Aug 2006, 20:52

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

London you say? *pricks up ears*

4th Aug 2006, 20:52

clara says:

Thought you might know.
Any ideas where in London the Park are recording their album?

4th Aug 2006, 20:52

hella says:

djing? he should do that in germany, bloody hell! i would be there and at least 2 other people i know, yeah.

4th Aug 2006, 20:53

clara says:

That question about the recording was for Jen.

4th Aug 2006, 20:53

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella - nah, I like it, I think its time we compiled a list... of possible titles. I've got tons of 'em.

4th Aug 2006, 20:54

clara says:

If she's still online.

4th Aug 2006, 20:54

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

OOOOOH. It's probably a sort of sold out type thingy...I guess. *dejected*

4th Aug 2006, 20:56

hella says:

i'm NOT jealous of everyone who can go there. phh.

@bound: you have even more possible titles? i'm curious!

4th Aug 2006, 20:57

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Clar! Let's go! Tis a sign! Sorry, got excited.

But really, let's go!


Or not, as the case may be.

4th Aug 2006, 20:58

clara says:

Thanks Jen!Any news about the recording venue though?

4th Aug 2006, 20:58

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella: I've got titles coming out of my ears, but most of 'em are X rated. As are all my ideas for cover artwork.

4th Aug 2006, 20:59

hella says:

oh well. i might like that, you know :D

4th Aug 2006, 21:01

clara says:

Oh Bound,I'd give anything to go,but it's impossible tomorrow night.

4th Aug 2006, 21:03

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella: Glad you agree there is nowt wrong with a little perversion (especially Smith-related perversion)...
@ Jen: Why is it good they can't go to the gig? are they likely to get rowdy and wreck up the joint?

4th Aug 2006, 21:04

clara says:

Ok Jen,just thought I'd ask.

4th Aug 2006, 21:06

clara says:

Wow Converse,then you'll be going to the Lab.Let us know what it was like,if you go.

4th Aug 2006, 21:07

hella says:

@bound: how could i even dare to think that! was said beforesexonlegsetc haha

@converse: ..and i'm in germany! and not only for vacation. grr.

4th Aug 2006, 21:08

hella says:

oops i so got that wrong

4th Aug 2006, 21:10

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Jen:Ha, yeah the guy needs to buy a belt...
@Converse: I wanna go! Wahh. I could go alone, but I might look a bit of a numpty.

4th Aug 2006, 21:12

hella says:

i should buy a ticket to fly to london. i'm bored all the time anyway ahahahhahahahaa
[sorry it's late and i didn't sleep much last night]

4th Aug 2006, 21:14

clara says:

12 Old Compton St?Shoreditch is in East London,Converse.You're thinking of Soho.
@Jen.Couldn't help laughing at your description of Paul's dancing....wish I'd seen that.Could've made my night(the ass-shaking,not the likelihood of
the jeans falling down.)
@Bound-I genuinely don't think I can get there tomorrow night.

4th Aug 2006, 21:15

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella: Yeah, fly over here, just on a whim like. :D
I just need to find a floor to kip on now, if I can go... (don't worry Clar, your floor is safe! I will find someone who takes in waifs/strays/irrational fangirls)

4th Aug 2006, 21:17

hella says:

why not the likelihood if jeans falling down, clara? no of course ass-shaking paul is much better. i don't know what i'm saying. just shut me out or something [no please don't][see?]

4th Aug 2006, 21:17

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@ Clar:No probs, hon, I wasn't expecting you to! You can ditch me whenever! XX

4th Aug 2006, 21:18

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Can we stop this Paul's-arse thread? I'm getting all silly..

4th Aug 2006, 21:19

hella says:

@bound: i'm already at the airport right now, actually, i'm very spontanious!

4th Aug 2006, 21:19

hella says:

& you're right, it should stop.

4th Aug 2006, 21:20

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Yeah, you are somewhat, Hella... Actually so am I... you've probably got more chance of going tomorrow night than I have... I don't think I've thought the logistics through...

4th Aug 2006, 21:22

hella says:

well guess what [you wouldn't have imagined that ever[!]], i'm not actually going to london. so we can both just stay home tomorrow night and envy everyone who can go there, at least we're not alone :P

4th Aug 2006, 21:24

clara says:

Watch it,Bound.Shoreditch is a dangerous area at night.

4th Aug 2006, 21:25

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Yeah, the more I think about it, the less possible this whole expedition seems... you're probably right...
(BTW- answer your phone! X)

4th Aug 2006, 21:26

clara says:

You're quite funny yourself,
telling a story,Jen. I agree with you about the random gigs thing and the floor-kipping.I wouldn't go to Shoreditch if you paid me.
Too rough at night.
Maybe Paul should bike it home after gigs-if he has the energy.
When has he been left behind before?

4th Aug 2006, 21:28

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Urrgh, you're friends with a weirdo, Jen! Urgh.
Sorry, I've lost it. Completely. Don't tell me mean stories about Paul though! I can't imagine he's that forgettable...

4th Aug 2006, 21:29

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

All right, Converse, enough with the rubbing in, already!
I guess I could go for about 10 mins... til the last train...

4th Aug 2006, 21:30

hella says:

aww poor paul was left behind.. i imagine the look upon his face when he realised the car was gone etc .. haha. funny.

4th Aug 2006, 21:32

clara says:

My phone?Oh I see.Mmm,thought it was a call from Paul.Now that would be something...
Yes Shoreditch.Jack the Ripper and all that.Not a salubrious area at all.
There's a few of us obsessed with Paul's ass on here tonight.Well,Jen started it.
@Bound.I won't ditch you,it's
just I wish the gig was in a better area of London. Too scary round there.

4th Aug 2006, 21:35

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Wow, Byker. As in the Grove (spot the clueless Southerner)
@Clara: I'm really sorry if you thought I was trying to put you in a difficult situation. I wasn't! Sorry! X

4th Aug 2006, 21:36

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Damn, was going to do my best De Niro impression when you picked up too!

4th Aug 2006, 21:37

hella says:

obsessed with paul's ass? no idea what you're talking about.

4th Aug 2006, 21:38

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

If Shoreditch is that bad, I'll trust your judgement. You know London, after all. The most dangerous thing round here is the possiblity of a fast moving cow. Or kamikaze pheasants. I love living in the country.

4th Aug 2006, 21:39

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella: Yes, do you know what, it's actually been said that he's rather attractive. I don't see it myself...

4th Aug 2006, 21:40

hella says:

@bound: neither do i, see i have this thing for older men .. like .. hmm. mick jagger, yeah that's the kind of guy i like, you know.

@jen: :D well he would always find someone to talk to i guess.

4th Aug 2006, 21:44

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Jen: NO WAY!!! Coming from rural Hampshire, my entire knowledge of Newcastle was based on that show when I was growing up... God, it was crap. Your friend is uber lucky!

4th Aug 2006, 21:44

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella: Then I'll be sending you a copy of that Paul/Mick fanfic when it's done... ahem, you know, the imaginary one I'm not writing...

4th Aug 2006, 21:46

clara says:

Also in Shoreditch there's alot of muggings at night.What a silly venue to have it in!(if I may say so).
@jen.Oh dear,poor old Paul.
I think he needs a holiday.

4th Aug 2006, 21:48

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Oh cripes. I don't want to go looking for trouble. Fangirl supremo I may be, but probably not up for mugging to get a glimpse of my hero...

4th Aug 2006, 21:50

hella says:

oh yeah i can't wait for it, you can write a whole imaginary book. i think clara would be scared by it to, it seemed so regarding an earlier post among this little amount of posts here :P

4th Aug 2006, 21:50

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

@Hella, I'M scared, and it was my idea. I actually should be stopped.

4th Aug 2006, 21:51

hella says:

:D well i'm not the one to stop you.

4th Aug 2006, 21:54

clara says:

Wow-everyone's been at the wine on here tonight-what alot of chat.
@hella-Mick Jagger?This is where we came in,wasn't it? The conversation's progressed since then.
@Converse-what part of Hammersmith are you in?I'm not far from there.

I'll have to sign off now.Night all!

4th Aug 2006, 21:55

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Don't encourage me! Are you still there, Clar?

4th Aug 2006, 21:55

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

That sort of answers my question. Night!

4th Aug 2006, 21:56

clara says:

...er,Hella-I don't think scared is the right word-just that,um
fanfic with Paul and Mick??Eeek.

4th Aug 2006, 21:57

hella says:

all that posting kind of saved my uber boring[!] alone at home friday night. [and you people are so much nicer than people on most of other forums.. *cough* had to be said]

4th Aug 2006, 21:57

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Hotel 65? Wicked, I'll kip there. Y'know, in the bins, out the back.

I'm probably going to have to face the fact that I can't go...:(

4th Aug 2006, 21:58

clara says:

Used to live in Shepherd's Bush.Not very salubrious either. So be careful,Converse.
Must go now-bedtime.

4th Aug 2006, 21:59

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Yay! Awesome use of 'uber', Hella! Mind you, there was a superb instance of 'kibosh' from Clara earlier...

4th Aug 2006, 21:59

hella says:

i know! i love using uber [i never do though], it's so not english, i don't know, awesome.
kibosh?
night night, clara!

4th Aug 2006, 22:00

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

I use it constantly, about everything, really inapproriately mainly. Aw, crap I was gonna do my roots. Now I have to live with nasty two tone hair...

4th Aug 2006, 22:02

hella says:

i should use it a whole lot more too!

@jen: the bathtub? very cosy! :P

4th Aug 2006, 22:04

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Thanks jen. I'll probably nag Clara silly til she pops me one :D I'm probably being a bit unrealistic about going to the gig... Have a good one, whatever you get up to. Night.

4th Aug 2006, 22:04

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

I could comment to myself all night, or I could retire...

Now THAT'S the title of the new album!

No, it's really not.
Night all. X

4th Aug 2006, 22:05

hella says:

now what's the title of the album?
i could go commenting forever but my neck hurt so much all day, so i'm gonna go to bed too. oh and i'm tired too, just for the record.

4th Aug 2006, 22:07

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Aw crap, Hella's still here! Sorry hon!

4th Aug 2006, 22:07

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Night night! X

4th Aug 2006, 22:08

nevermind my question.. great title indeed!
night xx
