Goddamn, this was amazing. Millencolin, i'm sure the most of you here know about them, they're a swedish band who plays skatepunk (and more recently more rock-driven songs) and are huge in Australia. Millencolin started out 1992, made their first us-tour in 96, been in australia more than 8 time.
Goddamn, this was amazing.
They played all of those songs like they sound on the cd's, but it felt like we we're all waiting for something...
...and after finishing "killercrush" nikola said "This is our producer, or mentor, our best friend...." and some dude were walking up on the stage.. wait.. that couldn't be...could it?
YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT IT WAS!
Mr Brett, good old Mr Brett on stage, he said "Hi" and then started playing the good old riff from "American Jesus". By now, everyone were stunned, yes, we knew there wwere going to be a special guest, but who in the wordl would have expected Epitaph owner Brett Gurewitz?
"American Jesus" were really awesome, Nikolas voice really fitted the song (but hey, if the singer from simple plan can sing that song, who can't?) and it was a pure pleasure watching the homecoming swedes on stage playing with one of their childhood idols.
After finishing "American Jesus", brett stayed on stage and played "Fox" with Millencolin, and he inserted some kickass solos in it which sounded pure great.
But no no, Brett didn't leave yet, he had to play "21st Century Digital Boy" with them, and it sounded amazing.
Then Brett left with everyone, EVERYONE having a big smile on they're lips. After this they played they're "best" songs in a row, and it was just plain amazing. they Played:
The next surpise were pretty obvious, since the Bombshells were opening, Mårthen came out and sang "home from home" from the cd with the same name with Nikola, i would say it was the highlight, it was the best performed song i've ever seen, Mårthen was just plain crazy.
Then they played their last song, their Op Ivy cover "knowledge" (found on "the melancholy collection"), and for this song, all the members of Bombshell Rocks joined up on stage ending this show in just pure madness.
Thank you millencolin, I'll be there on your 20 year anniversary!
