LUNA is DEAD
My beloved Black Bouzouki LUNA is no more...
She was named "Luna" after the MOON and the hauntingly beautifull Harp-tune "Luna" about the transition between life and death written by Jenny in 2002
(which appeared on OMNIA's "crone of war" album).
Luna was built in 2004 by Heiner Dreizehnter and has played on nearly every OMNIA album ever recorded... as well as uncountable OMNIA concerts all over the world.
BUT last weekend, the SchlossHoff festival was her LAST gig...
It was almost as if suddenly she had lost the will to live and tried to end it all...
Even though she played brilliantly as always, Luna ALMOST fell off her stand on stage TWICE during the show (saved once by me, once by Daphyd).
It was a wonderfull gig, but after the show was done, as I carried her off stage down some wet stairs in the rain... she literally jumped out of my rain-slicked hand and went crashing into the heavy steel staircase like a moth diving into a flame.
I screamed "NOOOOoooooooo!!!!" as the sickening crunch of splintered wood signalled the death of 10 years of musickal friendship... I was so shocked that I didn't dare look at her closely untill I had packed all my other instruments ... when I had worked up the courage to check the damage I saw that her beautifull body had split!!
I was so upset/ fucked up, that for the first time since I can remember I didn't go out to meet fans and sign CD's after the show (sorry for that guys and girls)
Her body still resonating with the accumulated cheers of hundreds of thousands of OMNIA fans will be consigned to the flames and I will ritually saw off her head (which I designed myself) and place it on our house Altar to remind me of
All the good times we had together...
All the songs we wrote together...
All the PaganFolk Musick we made together...
LUNA is DEAD
and I grieve...
Yeah baby! Welcome to the Omnian battlefield...
Here's a rapid look through the scope of the Daphyd Didgerizooka! We sure did blow up some minds this weekend. We played two awesome shows at the Schlosshof Festival and, today, the first MPS in Aach (near the beautiful Lake Constanze). Now we are completely exhausted and ready to crash in our rural guesthouse in Tuttlingen.
Have a good night....
XXX Saat, Jenny, Daphyd and Omnia

Apres Show Food!
Thankyou Schlosshof!!! Great Gig AND good Vegan food after the show!!
We dont get that
...normally I have to starve at festivals or just munch some lettuce because they usually only have Concentration Camp meat (which I cannot eat, because it is anti- life and taboe for my living soul)
But here it is! Good food after a great gig... Me happy!
Schlosshof is great!
