Recovery is well underway from sunday’s launch, and we’d like to thank all of the survivors with the stamina to have dealt with the launch of Sandy’s Cocktail Bar and the re-opening of Bambuddha Grove for helping us.
Particular thanks go out to Jamie who lent us the 72” TV that nearly killed us in the shifting, and to Crispin of Sandy’s, who allowed us to beat down his door after some four hours sleep, in order to have a back-up 42” plasma on site at the gig, at Brisa de la Mar on Cala Pada beach.
As it turned out, with double back-up for the technology – two computers (Mac & PC), plus two TVs (72” &D 42”) – we ran out of credit on the 3G mobile Vodafone connection providing the live internet feed… (All present laughed their tits off – don’t you just love Ibiza sometimes?)
Most of all we have a huge debt of gratitude to repay to the Lost Mountain Orchestra, who would have been perfectly within their rights to have chucked us out when we hit our first technological failure. Instead they ended up buying us drinks at the Cardamom Club till the early hours.
What lovely people…
(we would have photos but for some reason we were busy – but the local press will fill that void)…
