Review of TR at Bospop Holland

Review by Jos Durkstra (Switch to

Seeing Ted alive and kicking serious butt in Holland in 2004 was the surprise of the year for me, also because my wife gave me a ticket for my birthday! It was very nice to meet some fellow dutch Tedheads and enjoy this show together (Hello Istvan and the others, it's me).

Ted seemed a little bad tempered to me, as if he was irritated about something. Or maybe it was part of the angry-ness of the music and the message of 'Liars'.

The sound was very good (although the bass could have been a little less loud), very close to the ear and outside of the PA speakers, a little like wearing a headphone.

My guess is they made use of so called 'psycho-acoustics' at least that's what it sounded like to me.

He played for only one hour, mostly the heavy numbers like Mammon and so on, no soul songs.

I thought this was a good idea given the short playing- time, although I like the soul stuff a lot.

This made me wonder why Ted didn't do a full concert in our little rainy country.

I guess because the sales of his records are dramatically low here: in the city where I live (Zwolle) only 1 (ONE!!) copy of Liars was sold (guess who bought it).

It seemed that even the 'unrundgrenized' people (the big majority) enjoyed themselves a lot, so maybe some of them might go to the record-store to update their collections (go ahead, don't ignore him any longer!)

Anyway, Ted, if you might read this, I will carry my torch for you.
