I'd been undecided for quite a long time whether I would go or not to Pinkpop this year. The line up was tempting, Queens Of The Stone Age, Triggerfinger, ... ! I eventually stayed home, The Netherlands mean quite a long drive from here, but I didn't miss the live stream of one of my favourite band. And, on that sunday evening, they were once again impressively awesome !! They had been on a touring break for about 2 months and I was looking forward to seeing what they were up to and if they had any new material. I didn't get disappointed. The new song, "Attitude For Darkness" is quite engaging, based on an old school rock boogie riff that passed through the audience just like another great Triggerfinger's nugget. But the masterpiece of the show is no doubt "My Baby's Got A Gun". I've seen Triggerfinger quite a few times, live and on screen, and this number is not my fav of the last album, but I must admit that, here, the band delivered a devil possessed version of the track. Mario and Mr Paul's rhythm section is pounding as ever, Ruben's voice is at his top and his circular-saw riffs rip the song apart all the way (as you can hear below from the soaring take-off at 2'48) ! Looks like Mario is particularly keen on being back on stage too, when you see him screaming, licking his cymbals, leaving his drum kit behind to swagger  in front of the stage or else, tapping on glasses, on a bottle of wine and a Pinkpop bedside lamp on "I Follow Rivers" ! 
On top of that, our three shooters showed up in a very elegant pink suit to pay tribute to the festival (look at Mr Paul's "gold plated" shoes too !). Very smart ! At last, thank you Dutch fans for being so warm and responsive to the band and for making then this concert so intense. I am along with you with all the "best­e band van pinkpop 2013 !" that sprang up on the web after the show. I wish they could get this rousing welcome here ! "Soon", I hope ...   
I've added a few extras, from the same day and from an "old" early period ! 

Hope you'll enjoy !

Cheers !

Putting The Hives in a 300-capacity hall is just like stroking a tiger in an elevator. This may be shaking a bit ! This one is no exception to the rule and here again, the band unleashes the beast for a "secret" show in the overcrowded and cramped Studio, at the Webster Hall, New York, just after the release of  their first album in five years. And they're damn starving ! No holding back here. Pelle's banter hasn't toned down with the years and he is still this so brilliant / arrogant swaggerer ("this stage might not be big enough for my ego"), asking the audience to feel his hand, diving several times in the audience while his brother is licking the mic and thrusting his head in the arms of the first row ! On the telluric "Tick Tick Boom", down in the middle of  a parted audience, he even challenged the crowd to “crush him like an ant” before he made it back to the stage. Wish granted !
Anyway, if you have never seen a storm in a matchbox, this is the show !!
To stick to the same soaked in sweat atmosphere, I've added three songs of their gig in the hall of a French radio, even smaller than the Webster's !
At last, you will find a funny and howlin' bonus, in which you can notice that "to pelle" really means "to swagger" !!

On a technical side, this one really gave me hard time The Oüi FM part came out systematically mute. After many many attempts and long encoding hours under different formats, I had to inexplicably remove the interview that came after the Webster show to make everything work . Weird ! Anyway, this is original HD. I managed to trim off the commercials but I couldn't crop the upper banner without re-encoding and coming out with a much bigger file.

Enjoy !

Another furious live performance from the LA 2013 punk revelation. As usual, everything's played headlong and at top speed in a Ramones-like way. So, 2 high-energy shows unleashed in a neat quality (the first one is HD), giving a mouth-watering first taste to the forthcoming tour ... I won't miss this time !

Enjoy !
