Welcome to the official Moblog for Maximo Park - the Maximoblog.

This is where the band post photos of whatever takes their fancy that they think might be of interest to the wider public, from the mundane (backstage) to the spectacular (Archis' hair).

But they are not the only ones, as this Maximoblog is open to you!

Anyone who wants to send in a photo, whatever they feel relevant, we would love to see. The more the merrier, the more creative the better.

Get involved!

Bound says:

I love the fact that hat obsession is taking over the Park's fanbase. :) I love his hats...despite missing the combover, deep down. Also, what does his tee say?

9th Dec 2006, 13:58

clara says:

Hi Bound!Hats rule,eh?Not sure if I like this one,it puts me in mind of the Homepride Flour men...
it may grow on me.
The tee says"...........not missiles"
LOVE the last photo.

clara says:

I'm sorry Paul,if I was being rude about your hat.Had got so used to the trilby-it was quite a surprise to see a new style!

9th Dec 2006, 14:37

Kay(zhaokaiyuan-at-gmail-dot-com) says:

the shirt says "EDUCATION, NOT MISSILES". i was at the second row duringthe performance.

9th Dec 2006, 14:51

clara says:

I like that slogan.Profound.

9th Dec 2006, 15:02

clara says:

Can you give us a report of the show,Kay?What songs did they play and was the audience reception good?

9th Dec 2006, 15:03

kay says:

MP's setlist(one of the girl grabbed it after the show):

the expats and chinese national's ratio's about half half. a lot of us only heard two or three songs from them before the show, since chinese media rarely plays such music. but chinese audience started to love their music immediately after they start to play, since paul, lukas acted hysterical on stage and we like performers with such abilities!!there are some expats who are quite familiar with their lyrics and could sang along. others who cant still rocked hard and even pogod. we had a great time, and there was an encore.
I between, an englishman on the 3rd row said something like being from the same town as paul does and their mutual friend just had a baby(they had accent so im not clear), paul gave the mic to that man let him speak ;)

also, some white girls who stood in the first row were already fans before the show and one asked paul if he could marry her, paul said "sorry i cant how old r u" the girl said "18" then paul said something like he's 28 or 29 so he still cant marry her.

there was an after party later, but i didnt join it. one girl i know met lukas in the party and got her CD signed, posed for Rolling Stones mag journalist together!

clara says:

Thank you for that report Kay,it sounded fantastic.Nicely described.
Paul has a lovely connection with his audiences.Good to hear you enjoyed the show.

9th Dec 2006, 15:25

Bound says:

Thank you for the indepth account of the show! Sounded so good...also, I'm blatantly still in with a chance! 23! Easy! And I thought he liked 'em young! :P

9th Dec 2006, 15:27

clara says:

Ok see you later-must dash..

9th Dec 2006, 15:29

kay says:

i also post the account in the forum, with some slight alterations.

9th Dec 2006, 15:33

Ducky says:

Aweeesome, awesome pics and great show by the sounds of it!

9th Dec 2006, 15:49

outofvision says:

aww, limassol as part of the encore. sweet.

9th Dec 2006, 16:53

elenarendezvous says:

The same as Bilbao, limassol and going missing.

I´m in love with his hat, I´m in love you know!!??

9th Dec 2006, 17:36

clara says:

Hmm,Elena,steady on there.

9th Dec 2006, 18:18

outofvision says:

i'm in love with that hat too!

9th Dec 2006, 18:19

clara says:

I wish I could say the same.

9th Dec 2006, 19:01

Bound says:

Maybe it's a grower.

9th Dec 2006, 19:21

heArtbeAt says:

I want that bowler hat.

9th Dec 2006, 19:31

char says:

Erm...why is Paul pretending he doesnt like young girls when he blates does. I like the hat period, I feel he's wearing hats while he decides what the next hair phase will be. Will you all still wish to have his babies if he shaves his head???! Dooooo it Paul! Also, Im so happy to see some new pics up here, especially all the way from China, exciting :D Xx

9th Dec 2006, 19:54

clara says:

Char,you're the funniest gal I've ever seen on here.You're so earnest!!!That hat's a temporary blip,I hope.

9th Dec 2006, 21:22

char says:

Aaaw thankyou. Thats a well nice way of saying I have a big mouth! ;) xx

9th Dec 2006, 21:23

clara says:

I'm sorry,I'm having fits of giggles over said hat.Oh Paul,it does nothing for you,pet.
Sorry to speak my mind!

9th Dec 2006, 21:27

cahr says:

I think its alreet!

9th Dec 2006, 21:33

char says:

If only I could spell my own name eh? Xx

9th Dec 2006, 21:34

clara says:

@Elena-you've always liked Bold men???or bald?
Because I don't think it suits Paul at all,Kubrick or not.Sorry!
and please,Paul,don't shave your head.I LOVE your curls..

9th Dec 2006, 21:39

char says:

Seriously. Paul doesn't want to conform with the indie stereotype since he's always badmouthing it, he should DEFINITELY shave his head. Xx

9th Dec 2006, 21:41

clara says:

Oh Char,nonsense.Don't give Paul ideas about shaving his head,for God's sake.The curls are gorgeous.

9th Dec 2006, 21:48

clara says:

I really must go now.
Night all!

9th Dec 2006, 21:49

Converse says:

Lovely pics, thank you for sharing! I hope I can see the Park again soon.

10th Dec 2006, 08:53

Converse says:

@kay: How expensive were the tickets for the show? (could you perhaps convert the price to US$?)

10th Dec 2006, 09:14

kay says:

its cheap, even to many beijingers. only 100 RMB, including two free Badardi cocktails...some people got their promo CD if they bought the tix early...

8 RMB=1 US dollar

10th Dec 2006, 11:42

kay says:

i know that many ppl got free tickets from radio stations. I dont think MP made any money from this trip. Badardi pays for their trip, i think, they will lose money :\\

10th Dec 2006, 11:43

clara says:

How do you know?

10th Dec 2006, 11:48

clara says:

And should you be discussing the Park's financial dealings on here anyway?

10th Dec 2006, 11:49

kay says:

i just dont see a enough ppl buying tickets here. so im a bit worried for them. but as you said, i shouldnt discuss it here.

10th Dec 2006, 12:06

Converse says:

Are you a Chinese, kay? I think it's wonderful that Maximo Park already play gigs in China :)

10th Dec 2006, 12:11

clara says:

Thank you,Kay.

10th Dec 2006, 12:15

kay says:

hey converse, yeah I'm a chinese national, not an expat.

10th Dec 2006, 12:21

Converse says:

Crazy... I think I never 'spoke' to a Chinese before. Your country is so far away, it almost seems unreal to me xD

10th Dec 2006, 12:34

Kay says:

I'm sure there will be more Chinese people coming to this moblog and their forum later. At the moment I'm like the spokesperson for MP's Chinese fans...xD

10th Dec 2006, 12:48

Converse says:

Soon enough there will be more Chinese than German people on this moblog, I'm sure. Until this day it's only outofvision and me even though MP have lots of fans in Germany.

10th Dec 2006, 12:53

Bound says:

@Converse: Hello baby. How's you? Sorry no mail-I'm crap. I've been regailing (or boring, possibly) people on the forum with tales of how you said I look like Paul's 'sister'. :D

10th Dec 2006, 13:33

ariane says:

"Soon enough there will be more Chinese than German people on this moblog, I'm sure. Until this day it's only outofvision and me even though MP have lots of fans in Germany."

Aaaaand me :D

10th Dec 2006, 13:50

Converse says:

@Bound: I haven't taken a look at the forum in ages... But you do look like Paul's sister!

10th Dec 2006, 13:53

Bound says:

@Converse: Grrr... He's hot, but bloke-hot, not I want to look like him hot! XX

10th Dec 2006, 14:05

Converse says:

@Bound: I didn't mean it in a negative way... it was just a neutral remark. xxx

10th Dec 2006, 14:12

Bound says:

Sorry if I sounded pissed...I'm not really. I'm singing Ben Folds really loud at work cos there's no-one around, so I'm actually pretty chuffed. Should I put you down for a copy of the Unoffical Maximo Calendar for 2007? X

10th Dec 2006, 14:22

Converse says:

Umm... I'm not too sure if my boyfriend liked a Maximo Park calendar on my wall, so, no, I suppose.

10th Dec 2006, 14:28

Bound says:

Yeah...I think mine would have to go at work...I'm thinking my other half wouldn't be overjoyed exactly...:D

Xiaomin(alatetala-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

so glad to see my pictures here :D

10th Dec 2006, 15:28

clara says:

They are lovely,Xiaomini.Do you have any more?

10th Dec 2006, 15:39

clara says:

Hi Bound-you working on a Sunday?
That's a pain.

10th Dec 2006, 15:51

clara says:

It is.Where do you work in interior design,if you don't mind me asking?

10th Dec 2006, 15:54

clara says:

Oh right.It's good to work for yourself,I think.Are you very busy at this time of the year?

10th Dec 2006, 16:09

clara says:

I'll have to go myself anyway-have some work to do which is pressing,see you folks later!
